After years visiting suppliers in Fuzhou and staying at the same Hotel (ShangriLa Hotel) I realized that, although ShangriLa Hotel is an exceptional place to stay, I was paying big bucks for services that I actually did not have the proper time to use. So I focused into a Hotel with comfortable room, good location and a staff fluent in English (not very common in China). This Best Western was a good find. Room is well decorated, not so big but with all you may need during your stay ( thumbs up for the excellent feather pillows and top quality linen), breakfast offers a good selection for all tastes, Hotel is centrally located and close to a park with plenty of green, it is silent and costs about 40% less than I was used to (although the word "Fortune" in the name may indicate the opposite).Since I leave after breakfast and return at night that sounded the right place to stay.
Unfortunately this Hotel has no gym at the premises (I like to exercise in the morning before leaving) or a swimming pool. Also staff is not able to answer more complex questions (I needed to register into the Best Western loyalty program and 3 persons at front desk were involved in a discussion to understand what I needed and how to proceed. The same happened when I called reception asking about the existence of a gym: I talked to 3 persons and no one understood the question, although made in many different ways). As this Hotel is located in a secondary street, some taxis find it difficult to reach (adding to this, there is another Best Western in downtown area that leads to more confusion). All in all a good experience.
