I am currently staying here for a conference. The Parkyard is located in an industrial/commercial zone but there's a good-sized shopping mall next door with a variety of restaurants. It is a smaller hotel but well run, stylish, clean, with comfortable rooms and an excellent pool and fitness center. The hotel also provides a lot of nice thoughtful touches, such as fresh fruit in your room, a free e-book library with over 4,000,000 volumes, and a DVD player in the room.
However, the best reason to book this hotel is the free wired and wireless internet. The Parkyard's internet VPN's to a server in Taiwan, which means that it is not only blazingly fast, but also circumvents the "Great Firewall of China." You'll be able to access Facebook, Youtube, and other sites that are normally restricted in this country.
