The room was a good size with a large LCD TV, clean, big toilet, everything works. Food and spa services available 24hrs. Internet was included which is good. If you are going to visit SARFT, I highly recommend this hotel, its just next day. Its still an excellent value if you like the neighbourhood. I would recommend it!
There was only one staff checking our group in at 5pm on the Sunday, causing a long delay. Many of the front desk staff also did not speak English, so its not yet international standard. TV choice was limited, would be nice to have more international channels. If you pay for breakfast, its very expensive 78RMB which is too much for the food, which is only average.
The toilet was blocked every day for 4 days before we were given a new room. Plumbers arrived promptly to try to fix it, but the problem was in the main downpipe, not the in room services.
The hotel rooms are coming up for a makeover. Carpets are shabby and the bathrooms need renovation. It is still a reasonable hotel.
The hotel was of a good international standard, around 3 stars. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and most staffs had good english.
