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.
