“Wonderful Hotel in Great Location”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

We stayed here as part of a tour so unknown what the cost of rooms are. The room was lovely and modern. The king size bed was larger than ever seen - firm mattress but perfect for me. TV choices had HBO and English channels. Breakfast buffet also had Western options. Great location within the old city walls - within walking distance to some shopping and the bell tower. Large bathroom with upgrade amenities. Only improvement could be having WiFi in the bedroom - only available in lobby area.

Room Tip: Best view are rooms that face the front.

I think this is a good choice to be in the Old City, which adds a lot of charm as it is surrounded by ancient walls which are lit up at night. The hotel is a bit older European style. However the rooms were lovely -the bed very firm, and a good western and Chinese breakfast and dinner buffet. Having some western options to eat becomes a good thing after days of traditional Chinese meals. Considering the options available, this is good. There are several malls and Bell Towers in walking distance. It is a university town, so lots of young people on the streets at night. The A/C was not working great.

Room Tip: king beds are huge- mattresses very firm

Stayed in this hotel for two nights in April. Great location. Nice rooms, with large bathroom. Lovely bar area, with happy hour from 5 pm to 7 pm. Breakfast very good and staff helpful. Would recommend.

Our second China hotel and a bit of a disappointment. The room was ok if a little 'tired' with no drawer space and too few hangers. Wifi in the hotel was rather 'hit and miss' even in reception. Breakfast was something of a scrum with too few tables, items running out and hot food only warm. Biggest surprise was to find a Spanish Tapas menu in the restaurant.

Room Tip: Have any rooms been updated recently?

Stayed at this excellent hotel in April as part of a tour of China, nice rooms, not large, but with the biggest bed I have ever seen must have been 7 foot wide! Lovely bathroom with separate shower and good quality toiletries. Staff on reception very helpful and laundry service was good and fast. The buffet breakfast was fair as with most hotels in China the hot food is never really hot. The location inside the old city walls is central and convieneint. The bar is comfortable and there is good WiFi in reception.

We stayed here 3 nights in 2 rooms for our family of 6. They put in a extra bed ( extra fee) in each room for us so it was a little crowded but manageable.
Nice bathrooms. We got upgraded to the 12th floor not sure how the room was different from other floors but we did have a large bathroom with a big tub and separate shower. Nice toiletries by L'Occitane.
No wifi in the rooms! Only in the lobby which is a bit annoying in this day and age. Tv was good and included HBO and several English channels.
Our rate didn't include breakfast because it seemed expensive to have it included. We did end up eating at the buffet one morning and it was good but was expensive especially for kids who don't eat a lot (120 rmb) There are a couple of street food stands outside nearby that you can get a cheap breakfast from (5 rmb) or we bought pastries and fruit, yogurt the night before and would eat that in the morning.
The hotel has a great location just a few minutes away from bell and drum towers and malls and pedestrian street with eateries. (Close to a Starbucks and dunkin donuts if you need a coffee and a donut)
Obviously a popular choice for tour groups. We saw several here.
One complaint that was mostly due to miscommunication, we had the concierge arrange tickets for us for the Tang Dynasty dumpling dinner and show. He got a van to drive us there (50rmb) and everything was fine but he didn't get it to come back to pick us up so we were left waiting and trying to find a taxi - impossible. We ended up getting a cycle/pedi cab home which was ok but just wish we had known earlier. I thought he said he would be waiting afterwards but apparently not. Just a failure in communication. Not many good English speakers at the hotel.

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a tour of China. Hotel is inside the old city walls, approx 10 minute walk to the Bell Tower. Hotel had a big lobby which was lovely. Also had a bar, shop & restaurant. Free WiFi is available in the lobby and bar. Our room wason the 5th floor and looked out over the front. It wasn't noisy for us but may be noisy for light sleepers. The room was well equipped and was very comfortable. Bathroom was really nice with L'OCCITANE toiletries. The hotel had a buffet restaurant which was approx 160 RMB. Food was really good with a wide variety and some food cooked to order. Good selection of foods available for breakfast but it was very busy. Staff in the hotel were friendly and helpful
