3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

I spent one night there in room 901 on a group tour, room ok, carpet stained. Fridge was not working but got fixed very quickly. As there is a lot of building going on nearby, we had to walk around the hoardings to the entry. Close to a pedestrian area with lots of western shops and fast-food outlets. Good atmosphere at night with entertainment and tai chi demonstration in the morning just behind the hotel.

This 20 storey hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of the Grand Canal, and adjacent to pedestrian-only shopping streets. The rooms are standard-sized but cosy, with condoms and other useful items in the bathroom available for purchase, including playing cards for 3 yuan (US$ 0.50). There’s a pleasant lobby bar. Breakfast is served on the 2nd floor between 7.00am and 10.00am, with a breakfast chef cooking eggs to order. In addition to a traditional Western breakfast Chinese choices include delicious mushrooms. For a change from Chinese food you could enjoy pizza with good wine in the friendly Pizzahut restaurant just 7 minutes walk away.

Stayed on tour for one night.Lots of construction at the moment but we were out and about during the day. Location was close to the Grand Canal. Room was spacious and although the ubiquitous hard bed was present, fine. Free internet connection in the room was great. The breakfast was first class. We ate dinner in the restaurant and although vegetarian food on this tour hasn't been great the others seemed to enjoy the meal. Food was plentiful. Overall fine for a night's stay.

We moved here from a very unsatisfactory hotel just down the road. It was delightful. Very clean. Excellent restuarant.
Good location with an excellent shopping centre right behind the hotel. Very reasonable price.

Stayed in this hotel as part of a Wendy Wu tour. Hotel OK, clean and comfortable. However, it was a bit cold, we were lucky to be given an electric bar heater (don't think the heating comes on in China until 15 Nov). Water also a bit cold. Breakfast was included and was quite good.
If you go out of the hotel and bear right, down the pedestrian street, continue to the end, turn left and follow the lane until you get to a bridge you will end upin the Old Town. It is an easy, safe walk and particularly nice at night when the bridge, pagoda and canals are lit up - lots of good photo opportunities.
