I was looking for a cheap hotel close to a metro station, which hopefully wouldn't have rats og cockroaches running around everywhere. Ping an fu hotel was exactly that - and nothing more. I found what I was looking for, so didn't really disappoint in any way, however before you book you should ask yourself if you can live with the following:
Hotel looks tired (in the dirty kind of way with paint falling off in the bathromm) inside out. Rooms, restaurant.... everything.
I booked on the 4th floor and got second floor = more notice from the road outside (but no biggie)
Bed is rock hard
Only tried breakfast, but as a westerner it's an absolute no go.... Arrived at 830 (should be open to 930) and there was hardly any food left. The food that was there was cold and Chinese (except for a boiled egg which was hard and cold - mm). Had toast (which she found out back upon request) with jam, and a coffe. End of story - no cheese, meat, fruit, cereal - there was nothing.
Only Chinese tv
On the plus side the internet is free and works great, and there's hot water in the shower.
To sum it up: if you need a cheap place to crash and you can live with a hard bed and no breakfast - go for it. If not, pay a bit extra and stay a swissotel 2 blocks away since its pretty okay priced in comparison.
