The hotel is located in a central area, easily accessible by the subway. Check-in was fairly fast, but non-chinese speakers will have a hard time communicating with the staff as they speak minimal english. First-time visitors will get an upgrade from a 'superior room' to a 'deluxe room' on a higher floor, if you join their membership program. Frankly, I'm not sure the room was any better, the carpet was wet, and bathroom was mouldy and omitted a foul smell. Bed was too hard, and the in-room movies (watched two) tend to skip to the beginning of the movie, before sporadically jumping back to the end again. Breakfast was an extra RMB70 per person, and didn't have a big selection. The main gripe I have about this hotel is the number of dodgy people going in and out of the hotel, and the massage centre on the 35th floor. Went for 2 massages on different nights. The massage provided was mediocre, and the girls were dressed in very skimpy outfits. If you do not like leaving big tips,or be made to feel like you're in a hooker joint, then I suggest not visiting as they are not very gracious if you leave a RMB20 tip for a RMB70 foot massage, or choose not to have a full body massage. All in all a very uncomfortable stay, and definitely will not recommend to anyone.
