“Affordable, clean and right by the airport”
Reviewed July 29, 2010

When yet another China Southern flight was badly delayed, we missed our connection to Shangri La, and we had to either decide to sleep at the airport or at Best.
We made the right choice.
Pros : The hotel is a few hundred meters from the airport and is easily reachable by the overpass connecting the departure hall and the hotel, just follow the signs. Rate was really good, something around 70€ I think. Room was VERY clean and it could match a 4* hotel by European standards.
Cons : At the reception they have like 6 computers but it still took 20 minutes to check out. Remember to keep you deposit receipt because they will need to match your copy with theirs, it all looked very bureaucratic. We tried to have dinner there around 8:30 pm, and all dining options were either closed or being closed. We ended up at KFC at the airport.
I would recommend it for a short stay by the airport.

You know you are the Best when.....
1. You can see the Hotel from the airport. All bright and lit up like a beacon in the night. All you have to do is look up and find the sign and then walk to the sign. Take caution when crossing streets though. These Chinese people have a need for speed and absolutely no need for any sort of traffic safety guidelines.
2. The word "Best" is written in English in giant blazing letters on the side of the hotel. So there's no guessin of where you are gonna end up - major plus when you have just navigated your way through a Chinese torture maze of an airport and you are are really tired and jet lagging and a lot of people are staring at you wondering what you are doing in their city.
3. It is also a major plus when you go to the front desk to check in and you don't know any chinese at all - except one pointless phrase about a bird and flower market, and somehow 10 minutes later you have a key in your hand and are headed to your room. Sign language is good, and when in doubt, just hand the nice ladies your passport. Apparently in China the Passport acts as a magic pass for just about anything. So basically if you are in a situation with a chinese person who speaks no english at all, and you and said Chinese person have spent the last five minutes doing all the usual sign language moves and have tried to communicate in broken utterances of eachothers language -all you need do is to whip out your passport, and suddenly all is clear as a bell, the Chinese person magically understands exactly what you are trying to say, do, or where you want to go. Amazing.
4. The Best definately is outfitted with the finest that hotels can offer. Wide halls, smooth elevators, spacious bathrooms..... Things to note however are the firmness of the beds. Apparently most Chinese people enjoy sleeping on one inch thick pads with a layer of hard concrete undernerneath. So these beds however thick and soft-looking are not to be flopped on. Flopping will result in a bone jarring incident that is more shocking than painful. So be carefull. I recomend a good hand test first. Just press down on the thing before you bounce, that is my reccomendation. Also know that air conditioning must be manually turned on. Even if you set the degrees to what you want - which mind you is in celsius, and spend the night sweatily waiting for it to kick on - it wont. The unit will not opperate until you manually switch it on.
5. The only bad thing about The Best is the possibility that they may send you to the wrong room. Chinese dudes give really mean looks if you wake them up at midnight trying to key into their rooms. The best thing to do in this situation is to hand the faulty key to someone else in your travel group and let them take care of it while you wait and hang out with your friends. Also - there is no free wireless - that's for all you business foks out there.
