“Too Bad for us....typhoon”
Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

Well, actually this is a pretty good hotel for the money. If you are a five star person, go to the Shang! We got nailed with a typhoon and were lucky to get some beach time for half a day, who's sand is nice, water is turgid and unfortunately unsafe/prohibited to sea swimmers like me ! :-)

The downside was upon arrival late that evening, we were put into a garden view room with twin beds when I requested a king for my wife and after a bit of unfortunate pushing,I got upgraded to a floor which smelled as if it had been aired out and occupied, as opposed to the aforementioned two rooms and floors, which smelled dusty. Their second room attempt had some giant air con system on the balcony.....sigh

I would come back as it is quiet, the staff are friendly, the hotel is clean and the beach is very nice

Stayed here in July 2012. Hotel is not in downtown area and also some distance from Beihai port. But a short walk across the road to a nice sandy beach. Beds were traditional Chinese style quite hard. The cabled internet in the room worked wonderfully well and very fast. Lots of activities available within the hotel. Very little English at Reception which makes it difficult but they try hard. Had some logistics issues and found a hotel manager whose English was good and did an excellent job to sort completely - impressed. Used my Visa card without any issues.

The hotel is not located in downtown, but it is just opposite to Yintan (Silver Beach). If you want to go to Yintan, this hotel is convenient for you.

We stayed in a Grand Double Room with Sea View, which is nice! The whole color, facilities and decoration are very good, but it is just a little bit expensive. There is a computer set in the room, but the internet speed is too low. You can't open more than one website, otherwise the whole screen would be frozen.

It was my first to order room service/food all of my experience of staying in hotels so far. The service was good! They have free outdoor swimming pool and fitness centre.

Parking costs 10 RMB per night if you are a guest and 20 RMB for non-guests.

This hotel is big, clean, ,pleasant and directly opposite the most beautiful beach in China. Unfortunately the check-in staff seem incapable of understading international credit cards and no-one that I met there understood English.

Every day I was told that my card payment had been refused and I must pay again. I checked with VISA and I had paid 4 times in all ! I spent many hours making international calls to VISA and arguing with incompetent counter staff and management. This experience ruined what should have been a pleasant stay.

I advise pay in cash. (There is an ATM outside the lobby.)
