“Reasonable for nanping”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

Not the best, but the price is reasonable, and for this city, this is actually one of the best options for this price range.

The rooms are a bit smallish, and the building itself is starting to become a bit run-down.

Okay for short stays, though.

Stayed February 2014, traveled on business

If you end up in Nanping it is probably for business and not for an enjoyable holiday as there is not much to do or see in Nanping.
I ended up in Min Bei based on a colleagues recommendation. I booked a room in the top floor which are a bit more expensive but quiet. The room itself is OK, a comfortable bed, fridge/minibar, safe, a desktop computer with free internet use (no WiFi though), a plate of fresh fruit every evening. The bathroom had some nasty smell coming from the sink from time to time. The showercabin was leaking water into the bathroom (since the door of the cabin didnt close properly) and even in to the bedroom due to some improper isolation.
The breakfast is not really up to western standards. If you are fine with fried eggs and toast, great. Otherwise the food is very chinese and not what a western tongue would like to eat - let alone for breakfast.
This is the Chinese province, so it will be hard to find a really good Hotel by western standards. The Min Bei is OK for a short business stay, I have seen worse in other regions!

Even if you look for a better Hotel in Nanping, it is not easy to find any. This Hotel is new renovated 2 years ago. But now already a little run down. The room is small, but the bed is soft enough compared to the other Hotel standard in Nanping. The bad thing is the bath room! It is not possible to close the shower door anymore (I hade already several rooms - it all the same). The smell in the bath room is terrible because the sink in the bath room is not closed or wrong designed so this you need to cover with a wet towel or something else to close is and stop the smell. The breakfast is a little orientated to western standard, but not ver good. The coffe is terrible and most food is chinese standard. But anyhow it is so far not possible to get a higher standard in Nanping

Room Tip: All rooms are to the street side - so if you stay in a higher floor is more quiet, but only two elev...

If you like luxury and you can afford 310 yuan this is the best hotel you get in Nanping.

First of all its the only (pre) 4 star hotel here. I stayed in Yancheng(currently #1 and Yijia(#3)) but they are both more 2-3star quality hotels and the 50yuan pricedifference between Yancheng and Ming Bei is definitely worth it.

Rooms: I would say 23m2 for the twin bed standard rooms which is as big as Yanchengs. Yijia has the smallest rooms. Noticable was the minibar,tea set, complimentary bottles of water, the bathrobe and the nice bathroom. Everything feels new and i like the small details like the overcharge security of the powerplug for the laptop. There is no computer in the room.
The beds win hands down from the other hotels. Beds where excellent.First boxspring bed with another top layer, swedish sleeping comfort. The other hotels have hard matrasses which feels like sleeping on wood. Some people like that, i dont. I was on the eight floor, very quiet to sleep and no mosquitos.

Service: For the first time i noticed the service staff since they where so obviously ready to help in anything and polite. So very satisfied with that.

Other facilities:
The breakfast was good and included in roomprice. 38yuan otherwise pp. Kids below 120cm didnt needed to pay at first. After 5 days they said the kids need to pay half since the hotel management was seperated from the breakfast management. This was obviously not taking responsibility for what has been said but i let it go. The breakfast is great. Asian food mostly, fresh fruits and taste good. Noticable is that they also cook certain food for you if you want(free).

The free gym which is in a seperate building which is connecting to the hotel through a corridor (next to footmassage place) . It suprisingly has AC, and the best gym in Nanping doesnt even have AC at the moment. However the equipment really sucks like it came from from TV Shopping Channel. Big minus for the gym which the hotel also wont care much for.

Location: Ming Bei has a front parking place which makes it less crowded place to walk out from compared to the other hotels. Its walking distance to the other top hotels bu then again Nanping is not really that big of place.

The room was clean and well furnished, but AC didnt work - maybe it was not season for that.
Unfortunately, no light at the working desk, so it was impossible to do some paper work.
Breakfast was ok - chinese type and also toast, eggs, honey, fruit and jam.
Receptioneers were a little mixed up, need some advices to proceed with the invoice and check out.
Hotel was silent.
