Several earlier reviews for this hotel call it old-fashioned but I think it has had an update as my room was newly carpeted and had very modern, golden glass walls between the bathroom and bedroom. Another good point was that all light switches were stamped with their use so there was none of that having to flick on every switch to see what lit up. I didn't find any staff who spoke English but I don't know of any English hotels where the staff speak any of the versions of Chinese. We got by fine on sign language and the staff were very helpful. The Chinese breakfast buffet was good and generous. My one complaint was on those little things. There was a kettle but an extra charge if you made coffee (and there was no coffee), tea, toothpaste etc all cost extra. It was only pence but even budget hotels usually manage to provide such items as part of the service. The bed was a bit creaky. The very modern bathroom had old hard towels distinctly on the grey side of white and although the shower was very modern the floor was not very clean and extremely slippery without a non-slip mat. I don't think I would choose this hotel again.
