“Decent but not Impressive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

This hotel caters mainly to Chinese tourists and it feels like a 3 star hotel. The hotel was decent but not impressive. Even though I had a room on the 20th floor, it was rather noisy at night as drivers in China love to use their horns as much as they love drinking tea.

Room was spacious but there was no international channels on their TV, only domestic channels which were rather boring. There was also a design flaw in the hotel room toilet as it was the type that has a glass pane that allows one to see inside the toilet from the room. There is a shade for privacy but note that this shade operates from outside the toilet, not inside and the shade was translucent. So not much of privacy when you are using the toilet.

Taking the lifts can be a challenge in this hotel. There are only 3 lifts serving 27 floors and be warned that you may end up waiting for a long time for a lift throughout the day. There was also no control of who is entitled to breakfast at this hotel. It seems like anyone can enter the restaurant and have breakfast as no one bothers to take note of your room number before allowing you to enter. Having breakfast at this hotel was rather stressful too as you got to "fight" with those domestic travellers to get your food as it seems that cutting queue is a norm in China.

Overall, my stay at this hotel was average. My advice to travellers is to choose a better hotel if possible.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing away from the main traffic junction plus high floor.

I love this hotel..had a great memory..lovely pool, food, location, view..
Rooms are spacious, clean, just great!! Bathroom very well equipped, with hair dryer and everything, umbrella also..Very big closet, excellent bed, with big lcd screen on the wall, few HBO channels, also like:) In front of hotel is a big market, lot's of stores, KFC, Pizza Hut etc..
Generally speaking hotel is very good..I am not sure how far from the nearest beach is cos I was there on business and we had a guide who took us everywhere..but Sanya is a really heaven on earth. We spent one day on some amazing beach with big stones on it, really huge stones, sandy beach and hot water...excellent..oo,I miss Hainan now...
I am recommend this hotel..

Room Tip: My room was very high, maybe 17 Th floor something..very nice

room is basic, daily housekeeping, breakfast buffet, location is one advantage saying that wish the hotel can do with better insulation from the street and hotel corridor noise intrusive to guestroom when one trying to rest. The hotel should invest those pre-select level lift system to address guests flow between street - reception - guestrooms traffic.

Room Tip: pick room on higher level void street noise

This is basically a hotel for Chinese tourists - staff very friendly, limited English spoken however it is better than my non-existant Mandarin - my travelling companion on this trip saved the day. If you want to stay downtown this is ok....Supermarket across the walking street from the hotel is handy...the two walking street stalls have a range of products...great shops & restaurants along the four or five mile Jeifang First Rd. Taxi's are hard to find at peak periods...longest wait around 15 minutes anywhere in city.
If you want a place to sleep while you see the sights during the day this is good value.
Cons..1.There is no air conditioning in hallways or lift areas on each of the residential floors - however the room air conds work fine - it is easy to sleep. 2. No minibar - fridge provided appeared not to work

Room Tip: Book a seaview room if possible, The high floors are good - views over the harbour to the Dubai styl...
