Front desk staff and the bell boy when I arrived were friendly and helpful, although none could speak any English. My room was spacious and reasonably clean, although stank of cigarette smoke. They don’t have any non-smoking rooms. Thankfully after a while, with the air con on full, I didn’t notice the stench. The room was in need of some TLC, with most surface scratched or dented – typical old-modern style (i.e. opened and never refurbished since the 1990s) Chinese hotel. There was a working mini bar, and the bathroom had hot water. There was no wifi, but a LAN cable (so only good if you have a laptop). The power outlets all died in the morning, which was a real hassle as I couldn’t charge any devices before my rail trip. The sheets on the bed were clean, and I slept very well, despite being quite hard.
Breakfast was a typical Chinese hotel affair – very greasy, and not too appetising for a foreigner. There was very little fresh fruit left when I arrived 30 mins before end of service. Overall, I was underwhelmed, but wasn’t expecting much for a Zhengzhou railway hotel.
