This is my 2nd stay at the hotel. It's not a repeat stay by choice as my father was insistent that we stay here.
First stay back in 2011 was terrible. Part of the reason was due to the fact that my son was extremely sick then. Furthermore, the towels there absolutely did not absorb any water whatsoever. It was a cold March then, and being wet and cold after the shower was really not pleasant. We were also staying in the smallest and darkest room category.
Fast forward to March 2014. I'd rate our stay now as pretty much trouble free. Certainly my expectations had been lowered. I even brought our own towels. The cigarette smell still permeated the hotel, but hey lights, hot water, air conditioning, free wifi all worked! We were also in a much bigger room... And it makes such a difference because we had more lights. Brighter rooms felt a lot less depressing.
Not my favorite hotel by a long mile. But I know we will be returning again in the future when my father takes us back to Meizhou (we are overseas Chinese whose ancestors were originally from Meizhou). As long as we get the bigger room and bring our own towels, I know it will be a tolerable stay.
