This is an 3-star hotel that's clean and has good service. Our room smelled smoky, but unfortunately, that's the state of things in China. This is a good hotel for business travelers with only carry-on luggage.
Here are our reservations about this hotel:
1) Location - it's really hard to find. Even speaking in Mandarin and having the address did not necessarily help. They are in an obscure location and the sign over their door was small, which did not help. It's not located near any other hotels, so cab drivers are totally thrown off by this address. Literally, the hotel is squeeze in between car dealerships. Tip: if you speak Chinese, tell them it's right by the car dealerships, not far from the Da4 Ping2 station. Once you are at the car dealerships, drive slowly so you don't miss the entrance. If you miss it, you will need to drive for a while before you can turn around, as there is a huge median barrier between you and the opposite direction of traffic.
2) Hard and dangerous to catch cabs -- the reason is that they don't have a real driveway for cabs to stop at. So cabs have to stop dangerously ON THE ROAD to drop off and pick-up. So there's no taxi line to pick up taxi's and you have to flag them to stop in the middle of traffic. If you have a lot of luggage or a child, this is VERY dangerous. Plus it's not really an area to pick up passengers, so at times it was difficult to find taxi's. Sometimes it's 15 - 20 min. wait, other times it's a 5ish min wait.
The plus of this place is really nice staff who really try their best by you.
