In a busy Xiamen week I stayed here a week.
the staff generally don't speak English but are anxious to help.
The manager with the best English of them went over and above to give advice, write addresses for taxis in Chinese.
The bill is in Chinese.
The breakfast is Asian sans some toast&jam and Nescafé.
There is no restaurant. All rooms on one floor and that is a smoking floor (i asked for non-smoking room)
You learn - you learn that Chinese men are awful singers from the KTV karaoke next door that kicks on until 4 or later.
You learn to use Google translate to get their assistance
You learn that Chinese is the dominant culture - hundreds of TV stations but only one CCTV14 I think, in English. Luckily the doco channel had some old Top. Gear reruns with Chinese subtitles.
You learn to order from the photos in the local restaurants who have no English (but it is fun)
You learn that Chinese police watch US reality TV Police shows - a couple of times they had to forcibly arrest drunken karaoke patrons.
