Pros: This Chinese-family-owned hotel is small and I found them extremely friendly (as was everyone in this tiny village); they welcomed me into their family, in fact - and I shared various meals (in addition to the included breakfast) with them during the week of my stay. The couple also took me in their family car on a couple of outings to sights which make this Jinshizhen village a very convenient spot from which to enjoy a change from Chinese-city life. The bed was a big double and good an firm, the room air conditioning was new, and although I was the only guest during most of my visit, the small number of rooms on the hotel "floor" of the building mean sharing a bathroom shouldn't be much of an inconvenience. When considering the modest nature of this Chinese-style bathroom (good hot water if a slow shower flow), one should remember the very economical price of the place this close to the visitor Mecca that is Shaoshan - a 70 Renminbi Yuan taxi ride away - and the beautiful memorial park to the recently rising star of Liu Shaoqi, once Mao's successor-to-be who "fell out of favour"; both were born within forty minute drive of Jinshizhen) The views all round the building are beautiful indeed, and walks and long cycle rides (the hotel owner found me a good one to rent for the stay) around the local area give a delightful and informative view of country life - where people still have time to stop and talk. One of the many and improving translation applications are necessary - and a perfectly acceptable way to communicate nowadays - if you don't speak Chinese. Be prepared to pose for self-portrait photographs with people curious at your arrival in their undisturbed world.
Cons: It is important to communicate effectively - via our screens - prices and payments made for additional services with the hotel/family, just to avoid uncertainties when it comes time to settle bills (remembering, I hope, that having found the hotel assiduous in its offerings, it is the non-Chinese-speaking visitor who should take any extra trouble to clear up misunderstandings - one minor one in my case).
