The Ramada welcomes you with the exact same smell as the Shangri-la hotel chain but that is where the similarity ends. We stayed in the Commercial suite and the rooms were big and clean but very poorly laid out, for example, the light switch for the bathroom is in the hall, fine when you enter the room but not when you are in the bedroom and need to walk through the dark bathroom to get to the switch.
on the first night there was no "hot" water, it was tepid but not hot. A man came turned on the taps and eventually it heated up a touch, only after depositing what looked like have the cities dirt in the bottom of the sink. Also the electric went out for a couple of minutes.
The breakfast is ok at best, I did not mind it was basic continental and basic Chinese but nothing special.
On our free day we wanted massages but they do not offer this service anymore even though advertised. the fitness room is a room with a couple of treadmills and a few free weight there were no staff around and the light switches were nowhere to be found. We went to the Sofitel down the road and had massages there and instantly wished we had stayed there.
The Large TV had HBO, discovery etc but the picture quality was not very good and really would have expected better.
