After being delayed in Sydney by fog for an hour, we missed our connecting flight to Shanghai. We were on a Wendy Wu tour (fantastic by the way) and they arranged a hotel for the night. We had to wait 30 minutes for a bus and then it took another45 minutes to the hotel. The New Century Hotel looks rather grand with a huge open lobby, the staff has very limited english skills which do not help with check in.The hotel kept the restaurant open for us as it was around 10pm that we arrived. We had room 1322 which was large enough with two 3/4 beds. No top sheet on the beds just a doona cover, bed was as hard as a rock!!! this is not uncommon in China. Bottled water is a must in China as you cannot drink the tap water safely. Hotels usually supply two free bottles daily but, in this hotels' case the fridge did not work so we had the water at room temp. We had a shuttle bus pick us up the following morning at 5.30am the ensure we were on time for our flight, as we were very early breakfast was unavailable but the hotel did a package for us to take. It consisted of fried bread and spread, a boiled egg, two small tomatoes and a tub of youghurt but no spoon.But it was something at least.
