“Location is ok, the hotel is not”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

We booked two deluxe rooms and were deeply disappointed with this hotel.

The carpet in the rooms was FILTHY, the shower stall very dirty and full of mould, and even the glass in the bathroom had the prior guests' toothpaste still in it. It was terrible.

The bedding was ok. The towels were very old, and torn along the edges.

The internet was ok, slow but worked most of the time. The tv was terrible. No channel was clear, all were blurry.

The window was so dirty you could hardly see outside.

The location should be good, with an IGA Superstore downstairs, plus a two coffee shops, and a Mannings, but it's so busy in the parking lot that taxis won't come in and if you have someone trying to pick you up, it's a terrible experience.

There is a pedestrian shopping mall just behind the hotel, so that was good.

The service wasn't good. The checkin counter girls were not friendly at all.

The breakfast was like something in Cuba....all basic dried out starches and nothing fresh at all, not even fruit. They had noodles, bread, and buns. None fresh. They had butter and jam one day, but not the next. The dishes were not clean in the restaurant.

We have stayed in Zhanjiang at similar priced hotels and will not return to Zhongtailai. It was too dirty. I prefer basic but clean, dirty is not ok regardless of price.

This hotel isn't bad. its clean, newish and better than you would expect for a standard room. The standard room is quite spacious and can comfortably fit 5 people (note: we actually jibbed the system coz we paid for 2 beds but slept 5 people). The beds are big enough to just fit 2 adults.

Service is ok with limited english. Its mainly catered to locals who come down to zhanjiang to visit family. One of the best things about this hotel is it doesn't smell like cigarettes from people smoking next door, coming through the air vents.

The rooms include buffet breakfast. The food isn't great so don't expect great quality or variety.

The hotel is centrally located, near major shopping centres & an IGA right next door. There are street food stalls around the hotel or if you can't be bothered venturing outside, then you can go to IGA for cooked food. There is also a Wal-Mart down the road which is pretty good too. Or you can go to KFC which is also available downstairs
