This is a very good hotel and excellent value for money. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and have all of the regular amenities you`d expect of a five star hotel, albeit, kept to the bare minimum. Case and point, there are only 2 coffee pouches for the French coffee press in the room, one regular, one decaf. The press takes twice the amount of water that one coffee pouch requires, and will only make one cup of coffee.
I was not disturbed by housekeeping throughout my stay. This I like alot. However, this is taken to the other extreme when no turn-down service was provided during my entire stay. Arriving back to my room each night to draw curtains and try and figure out how the complicted lighting system works. Easy solution, run across to the room card slot, remove card, and leap into bed fast, before everything turns off!!!
The restaurants are very nice indeed, and I enjoyed breakfast on the third floor level. The offerings are far superior to that of the sister property JW across the square. The bar in the lobby serves draft Stella artois at 101RMB inclusive of tax. That`s around US$16 for your 33cl pour!
