It's reasonably close to the subway at Haizhu Square and that's about it. The area in which the hotel is located is largely commercial and lacking in character. Which brings me to the reception staff; in the 80s one might be accused of cultural imperialism, but the lack of very basic understanding of English can only disadvantage the hotel. At the time of writing, English is the language of commerce. Ergo, one would expect rudimentary understanding in the staff of a business hotel. The more significant difficulty in communicating with some of the reception staff is lack of warmth and hospitality. Some just don't want to be bothered. As a matter of basic etiquette, the elevator overseer needs to be advised that if a guest is heading for the wrong lift, he probably shouldn't yell at them. And no, it ain't a quaint cultural quirk. The interior, windowless rooms are ideal for experiencing sensory deprivation, but claustrophobia is not for everyone. Also, you will hear everything that happens within a 20 metre radius of your room, at all hours. It seems to be the case in many Chinese hotel that basic staff training in hospitality is nowhere in evidence. So it is with The Bauhinia.
