This historic hotel is very clean and beautiful. Within a few minutes walk, one has easy access to three different subway lines as well as a major bus hub. In addition, the hotel is centrally located so that all the main tourist attractions are just a short subway ride or average walk away.
The service is excellent. Upon arrival we found our room's TV to be out of order. After spending a few minutes trying to fix it, the front desk arranged for us to be put in a different, larger room for the same price as the smaller room we had booked. The hotel staff at the front door are also extremely helpful in giving directions to area attractions.
There is a significant difference between the standard room and the room one level up. The standard room is very beautifully decorated; but it is small, has no bathtub and the counter space is limited. The next level of rooms is by far superior. This type of room we is spacious, modern and has a large bathroom with ample counter space with a glass enclosure featuring a bathtub, a normal shower head and a rain forest shower head. Both levels of rooms feature a large, flat-screen TV with free internet access (a wireless keyboard and mouse is provided).
The included buffet breakfast was also satisfying with a good and plentiful mix of western and Chinese choices.
The one downside was that the bed for two people was smaller than one would expect, and so some may find that uncomfortable. However, the mattress and pillows were very soft and comfortable - a rarity in China.
