“Most horrible hotel ever tried in China despite the high price!”
Reviewed August 22, 2011

This was the most horrible hotel (for the price, suite at 175$!!!) I have ever stayed in in Asia...
-Do not take foreign credit card (no bank close by to get cash)
-Nobody, even boss, speaks or wants to try speaking English even a little to sort out problems
-"Restaurant" only open for breakfast with the false name of "Western Restaurant"
-Porter/bellboy not at the door to help with luggage
-Despite the service advertised, wifi didn't work with code provided
-Hard bed (but then again, that's normal for China)
-Despite the price of the suite (175$!!), carpet with stains EVERYWHERE and not having been hoovered for a while
-Various holes in walls and ceilings
-Huge stain on bed headboard
-Terrible smell in bathroom
-Ceiling of bathroom missing whole panels
-No curtain around the bathtub-shower and no floor mat so bathroom unusable after any shower
-No bath products
-No minibar/fridge (should be there for this kind of price)
-No food close-by

Room Tip: Even the 175$ suite was terrible
