The strange smell coming out of the bathrooms eclipsed whatever else that might have been decent or acceptable about the hotel
Hotel and rooms are nice clean, in comparison to some other hotels in China and in comparison to some hotels in the same price category elsewhere. Employees are kind and try to give information requested. A lot of information is in three languages (Chinese, English and as well French). Enough good selection of different tea/coffee for self preparing in the room. Free bottled water in the room. In hotel shop along with post-cards on demand available as well the stamps. Against the deposit, you can borrow an umbrella.
No clear information, which are no-smoking rooms. One of our three rooms had on arrival a cigarette smell of previous guest, the smell however disappeared after several hours of ventilation. In hotel restaurants a selection of western foods, but poor selection of ethnic and other Chinese dishes (my previous hotel in Beijing had several restaurants, one of them with Chinese-Moslem dishes); poor selection of food for vegetarians, no detail information about the constituents of dishes (in regard to vegetarians or to people over-sensitive to eggs or tomatoes).
location hotel very good
beds were very hard walls between rooms very thin
I was put in the older wing of the hotel, which was a little noisy and given a room right next to the lift.
location, efficient staff and facilities
Breakfast overpriced as was the bar
