If you want a hotel that is 5 minutes from the airport for your last night then this is a great hotel. Good food in the morning, all day in fact, and a shuttle bus that goes to both terminals.
If you have to go into the city, as I did to get my work permit, it isn't too bad. You get the shuttle bus to the airport, walk a short distance to the Maglev rail and hurtle the 30 km to the city in 7 minutes at a max speed of 431kph! You are then on the green (2) metro line which is at the time of writing 4 RMB to anywhere.
But getting back is a different issue. The Maglav's last train is at 21:00. Not a problem you think as number 2 line goes all the way to the airport. You have to get off and change at Gulung station and then you find out that the #2 line to the airport closes at 16:00! So it's out, push your way past the mass of people trying to sell you Chinese IPods and get a taxi for 100 RMB.
I wouldn't advise using the sauna or festering hot pool, which is cold and has a layer of green water on the bottom of the pool.More
