Tricky as to breakfast coupon issued to guest. Assuming that breakfast is included (as I did) and if you used the coupon, hotel will charge you 170 RMB (about US$25 each) rather than the US$12 indicated by Booking.com. Front desk staff (one named "Fofanny") was rude and uncooperative and matter only get resolved thanks to Front Office Manager, Mr. Lance Mou.
the staff speak english and are very helpfull. the rooms are always clean and the location is perfect.
spa is very expensive and is ten times what you get for the same service a few steps outside the hotel.
The Hotel is comfortable and clean. Very near the subway (Line 2) and easy to move around. The Counter Manager (Andrew) is very helpful in providing us with very clear instructions on how to move around the subway and to the places we wanted to go. The chambermaids were very thorough with their work and were curtious when they met us.
The Spa was perfect and well kept.Good flexibility in leaving room time. Good value for the Money.
Overall carpet in room very old and dirty.
