My wife and I stayed three nights last month (February 2014) as part of a tour. It certainly is deserving of its 5-star rating. We found nothing negative. The breakfast buffet is super with both Western and Chinese offerings with enough variety that we didn't feel we had to eat the same things each morning. Everything from steamed vegetables to fresh fruits. An ATM is in the hotel. The staff were friendly and readily broke down the larger bills.
LOCATION: Excellent for us as we took a free day to explore. The subway station is just one longish block North of the hotel. The station is at the junction of two lines so transfers at other stations are minimized or eliminated. HINT: When traveling, carry a small compass so you know which way you are facing, especially at night or new surroundings. The subway is clean, fast, frequent, and inexpensive (about USD $0.33 per ride) and at times may be crowded (caveat: protect against pickpockets although we had no trouble). The subway stations are near many sites of interest -- just check the map. CAUTION: When we researched the hotel's location on the usual internet maps, it appeared to be South of the railroad tracks/station and a bit of a walk to a subway station. Actually it is North of the station ... our room was quiet and we didn't hear the trains in our room or other areas we visited in the hotel.
