I had to stay here as the hotel I was originally booked into refused to accommodate me as I was not a Chinese national. They recommended this place as it was the closest to where my business associates would be staying (they are Chinese and therefore were welcome to stay at the originally booked hotel. ) The check in was painfully slow - it took over half an hour to check in by the time they had taken multiple photocopies of many pages of my passport, and managed to work our how to enter my Western name into their system. They were immensely grumpy and got into a war of words with my Chinese travelling associate. When I got to my room, it was motel style, overlooking a number of concrete highway flyovers making the room very noisy. No carpet on the floor and no toilet paper in the bathroom. The bed was very hard which is fine by me but may not suit all. No English language channels on the TV and no remote control, so it took a while to find that out! The bathroom door got stuck, and with no English speakers on the staff, I had to resort to using Google translate on my computer and showing the reception staff my computer screen! The door was promptly fixed. Thank goodness I was not stuck inside the bathroom. However, the toilet seat was broken and pinched my behind rather uncomfortably!! The shower wa strong and large, but the door didn't open properly without bashing against the wall, meaning contortions were necessary to get out. A high point was that the internet access was free and speedy! The only express thing about the Hanting Express! I wouldn't stay here again - I can't imagine it would be necessary. It's not an international hotel chain, which is fine - I can't imagine too many motels in North America or Europe speaking chinese so to expect anything othe than I got would have been unfair. But the experience was very grumpy, inefficient and uncomfortable. I guess it was better than staying on the street - marginally.
