“Horrible experience - Please read”
Reviewed June 21, 2009

I am not a picky traveller. The lack of cold water is not an issue, nor is the non English-speaking staff. But I urge readers to avoid these sticky sheets.

This is not a hotel, but rather a place where one goes to meet women (floor 3), purchase their services, and bring them upstairs for a few hours. We booked a 3 bedroom "suite" only to discover the hotel stocks complimentary lubricants on the bedside nightstand. There were ants crawling in a path along the wall behind the headboards, with some ants crawling in the sheets. Staff speaks ZERO English and the area can be rough at night.

BAsically same as previous reviewer said...good for overnight stay. Location is good on large commercial Zhongshan Lu. Near the pagodas and river ride. (10-15 min walk or so).

Got a triple room for 288 RMB which was very large and decently quality for the price I felt. Much better than my hotel in Yanghsuo (Riverview.) Bed extremely hard but sheets/blanket appeared clean. Bathroom was large and relatively clean, though dark. Shower was missing door.

Booked a tour from the hotel, private minivan and english guide for 150 RMB. (doesn't incl any entrance fees.) which is an awesome deal. Started from 9am and didn't end until around 7.

Breakfast was quite bad, but 15 RMB it was edible.

Stayed November 2008

Recommended by Jasmine from Magnolia Hotel in Yangshuo. This served perfectly as a stopover hotel. The airport pickup didn't quite materialize, but we organised a taxi without any trouble (80yuan fixed) and this cost was reimbursed upon check-in.

The triple room was HUGE, although sparsely furnished. It had a double and a single bed. Staff were friendly, an extra blanket was provided instantly when asked.
