I have stayed at this hotel twice for business (Oct. 2005 and 2006) and I am planning a third visit. It has clean rooms with simple western style furnishings and bathrooms. Beds have a hard density for western guests' standards, but this hardness is common for Chinese guests. My room had a television with no international channels. CCTV 8 is available for English language broadcasts from Beijing. Rooms can face either the Pacific Ocean or the airport. Without a specific request, I was automatically assigned an ocean view room. I have never heard a landing or departing plane from my room.
I paid 235RMB + 10 percent service charge for one person in Oct. 2006.
I paid an extra charge of 100 RMB for high speed internet access for 24 hours. It is best if you bring your own Ethernet cable, but it is sometimes available. Using high speed internet, I have listened to internet radio.
Shuttle service is available to the airport. It is best to make an advance reservation. You can show them your departure ticket and I think they will tell you the time for the shuttle bus. Shuttle service from the airport to the hotel should also be available (perhaps by telephone call or the hotel 12 passenger bus waiting at the airport).
A Chinese buffet breakfast is available in the dining room. Dinner is by Chinese menu. I order using simple spoken Chinese or by pointing to a menu, that I brought from my home country and which has Chinese and English.
Very few reception desk personnel speak English. Use a Chinese phrase book, your business contacts, a telephone translation service, or other guests to communicate. The staff is pleasant and tries to be helpful and is very tolerant of my poor attempt to communicate in Chinese.
If you need to stay near this location, this hotel is a suitable choice.
