Reviewed April 2, 2014

I mainly chose this hotel for the location, at the intersection of 2 major roads through downtown: Renmin Rd and Ganjiang Rd. This is an excellent spot, within walking distance of many gardens (Master-of-the-Nets, Panmen Gate, Canglang Pavilion, Humble Administrator's Garden, Pingjiang Street, etc.) and many others in close proximity with a short taxi ride, plus it is less than 2km from the Railway Station. But the actual hotel was not quite worth the money compared to what you can get with other hotels. The rooms are fine and the shower/hot water is quite nice, but the amenities are very basic. Two small bottles of water per night, and no free coffee or tea in the room so bring your own! The walls are very thin and later in the evening I had trouble falling asleep because I could hear the neighbors' TV. The breakfast is included in the price, but of course it is very Chinese with fried rice and noodles, tofu with prickled vegetables, toast and butter, things of this nature. I was happy with the food, but I think many Western travelers wouldn't be overly excited to eat noodles and pumpkin porridge early in the morning. The major bonus was the early check-in - they let us check in at 11:30am - and check-out is at 2pm. They were happy to hold our luggage after we checked out, too. Overall it was fine, but the price was a little much for what was offered.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the elevator, the walls are thin and it is easy to hear people passing by.

I am writing this review while in this hotel. Last night there was a constant loud noise of water gushing around the systems which kept me up all night. Now it's Sunday morning and I've been woken by loud hammering and drilling in the adjacent rooms. Most hotels would close off sections for loud works but not this one. Also as I took out the laptop plug from the wall, the entire electricity socket came out of the wall. The hotel is located centrally but outside a major road work project making road crossing hazardous. The breakfast was quite poor and included deep fried battered fish heads. I only found this out when I bit into it thinking it must be chicken or something else. Also upon check in one of the female receptionists was very blunt to the point of being rude.

On a plus the rooms were quite well appointed. Beds were large and comfy and there is free wifi. However all that is useless if you can't sleep there for the noise. In summary this hotel has no respect for it's paying guests. There are much nicer hotels around where they are actually pleased to have your custom. Just do not stay at this hotel. Also called the guangchang hotel.

This very tired property is definitely not the four stars it claimed, but is centrally located and acceptable at the right price. They have adopted the western practice of ridiculous rack rates ($100 and up), but booking websites offer a 65% discount.
