“Quiet, lovely furnishings, clean!”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

This chain hotel is apparently offers properties that are fair to excellent. You can't be sure what you are going to get unless you do some research.

This property is a pleasant facility with beautiful old Chinese decor. The stone and wood furnishings are handsome and give the feeling of a connection with the traditions of China. Even better, they are easily cleaned and maintained, so the hotel does not suffer from the typical stains and dirt that afflict so many Chinese hotels.

Food is good, not great. Breakfast buffet is decent, not inspired, but does serve fresh eggs, satisfactory coffee, and a range of Chinese dishes.

They have a small exercise room, but most of the cable weights are broken. Treadmill and free weights work fine!

A lovely hotel to stay in. Don't let the furniture in the lobby fool you into thinking this is an old-fashined hotel. It isn't. Just that the furnishings show Chinese heritage. A lot of effort has been put into showcasing that heritage. From the way the door number is displayed for each room, right down to the fittings in the bathroom (see pictures i have posted). Very charming.

Fittings aside, the hotel room was exceptionally clean, beddings and carpet was also well maintained. Room is equipped with a large LCD TV mounted on the wall.

Service was also good, staff were friendly and one bellboy even refused to be tipped! Imagine that! Breakfast buffet had sufficient spread and was generally good.

A full length mirror in the hotel room was lacking in the room, but that's just me being extremely fussy.
