“Unfriendly, expensive”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

We checked into this hotel late one night following a disastrous evening on the Beijing subway and railway. We chose this hotel as it has the biggest billboard on top of the building and was very visible from the railway station. The walk-in rate was extortionate at RMB1000 but we paid up since we were practically dead on our feet and it was near midnight.
The reception was a desk and manned by 3 of the most unfriendly and rude people ever. In China that's saying something!!
The rooms was big enough. The shower was a nightmare. Water won't drain away and flooded the room. We used the towel to mopped up the mess since it was late and we were not prepared to stay up the rest of the night waiting on the maintenance.
We checked out the next morning and we had an almighty row with reception regarding the towels. Fortunately (or not!) we are Chinese from Malaysia and being fluent in Mandarin, we were not cowed by these little nasty "generals" We managed to walk away without being "fined" but it left a very bitter taste especially having paid such a high rate for a room which was worth a third.
Advice for anybody wanting to use China's railway for the first time. Get to the station EARLY!!! For those of us used to the western way of travelling by rail where you just waltzed onto the main concourse at leisure, you will be in for a big shock. The scenario at all the stations we used (Beijing, Xian & Shanghai) is like a war zone. You cannot get into the main concourse without first going through a security barrier where you have to show your ticket and ID. Then you have to have your bags scanned and body checked. Meanwhile there are masses of people pushing and shoving as if they are refugees on the run.
