We stayed for 1 night of our 9 day China tour - and overall it is a decent hotel. The lobby is spacious and modern, which probably heightened my expectations for the rooms, which disappointed.
The room that I got was a double standard bed, which was rather small and dark. Spatial measurements may differ subjectively, but it was small as in there was just enough space to allow you to walk the circumference of the room. TV reception was blurry with no international channels. Bathroom was small as well, and the biggest fault of all, and my husband agrees, that the bathing water (thankfully with heater) had a 'rusty' smell to it. I did feel clean after my shower, but there was that 'rusty' (almost like the insides of a pipe) smell that lingered, not a great feeling to have after a long and tiring day exploring the valleys.
Breakfast was basic but probably not to Western tastes - personally so long as I have my porridge, fresh fruits and tea I am satisfied.
Service wise - the only time we spoke with staff (and we do converse in Mandarin, so no advice for English only speakers) was to enquire on nearby massage places, and the receptionist was curt and apparently not in the mood to help much.
Overall, a decent hotel that feels like 3 stars, but probably not suitable for international travelers. I did spot Intercontinental and Sheraton properties while in Jiuzhai - maybe consider those.
