Tourist infos and propositions are not complet and the organised evening at Peking Opera did not be good
The location is perfect. The proce is very good. The building is very new, with modern interior and facilities.
The staff is not very friendly or efficient, English knowledge of the majotiry of people is below the minimum necessary for simple communication. The restaurant is overpriced and serves bad-quality food. The breakfast, however, was OK.
1. Better english at the reception. 2. At the check in the recptionist were talking to 3 guests at the same time, which delayed our check in. 3. We missed a refridgerator in the room.
