The hotel is basic but comfortable and clean. We realized that there were two buildings, I think the second and more recent one is the one with the restaurant, the rooms are probably nicer there (pictures shown on the hotel website). But ours (a family room with balcony, river view) was ok and big enough for the three of us not to feel cramped. Like in a lot of hotels and buildings in China, there was a bad smell in the bathroom but we easily got rid of it by putting a towel on the evacuation hole underneath the sink : problem solved ! The receptionist spoke good English and was very helpful, and the other people were also very nice. We rented bikes to tour in the countryside (10 RMB / day for the basic bikes, 30 for the best ones, which is very reasonnable)
We found the location very convenient, close to the river and West Street, but quiet enough.
