We stayed there for a short vacation in Qingming festival.
On arrival we where offered an upgrade to Horizon Club room which we took as our booking through Ctrip excluded breakfast. The Horizon rate included breakfast at the club lounge and main restaurant and also drinks and canapes in the evening. The club has a limited breakfast compared to the main restaurant however you can order bacon and eggs etc.
Our river view room was very nice and although the view is not spectacular it was pleasant. The staff are excellent and very attentive many are english speaking. We ate at the U Bar and the Chinese restaurant , food was good and priced well considering its a hotel.
The hotel is on the other side of the river from the town, so you need to take a taxi or walk. The walk is approx 20 minutes and you can see some sites on the way.
We had the hotel organise the river cruise and trip to rice terraces , think you pay a little more by doing this , however the tour guide and company were very good.
The gym is pretty well appointed also.
