I am surprise that this hotel gets a 4-star rating here, other travellers probably have different tolerance of cleanliness than I do. Compared to a western standard, I’d rate the cleanliness of this hotel to be below average. The room had a strong moldy and cigarette smell, no amount of air conditioning and airing can get rid of it! It was suffocating. The bathroom was seriously in need of revamp: between the tiles and in the corners and edges were all moldy. Could someone please scrub the tiles and clean the mold off? For the first time I was glad that I was short-sighted, for this allowed me to not see the mold clearly during shower or else I might simply jump out and decide to skip shower altogether. I’d add that hot shower is available only from 5 pm to 9 am.
The plus side is that the hotel is very nicely situation. Very close to the town center, just right across is the entrance to the pedestrian zone. Around the corners were restaurants and shops, very convenient.
Despite the superb location, if I ever return to Jinggang Shan, I would definitely still try to find another hotel which is much cleaner and smell better.More
