I must say firstly I was almost put off booking this hotel because of a number of narrow minded and slightly deluded individuals who have placed a number of negative reviews seemingly forgetting they were in China in the first place."they didn't speak much English" i have read on a number of reviews
In the centre of a vast country that hasn't been open to tourism for many years, I can't understand what some people really expect. "Hey Buddy how is your Sichuanese?"
The whole experience couldn't have been better. From arriving at 10 AM and being allowed to check in without any question. To being upgraded to a suite overlooking the river. To the staff's willingness to make themselves understood even though we couldn't speak a word of Chinese.
Probably the best hotel room I have ever stayed (have been travelling worldwide for 30 years)
Huge amazingly comfortable bed. When I was younger I have stayed in rooms smaller than the bathroom!
Seemed like a very nice central location overlooking the river. Numerous eating and shopping opportunities nearby.
We were only here for the day, transiting to Sydney so only wanted the room until midnight, when we checked out the manager rang down to the front desk asking if we were upset with the service as we were checking out so early. How's that for service.
