I stayed at this hotel a few times but since there award for budget hotel standards have fallen badly, front desk staff are rude and laugh at westeners that cant speak chinese, one of the employees is taking kick-backs from a pimp(bad prostitution issue) this is not a family friendly hotel thanks to the fact the employees allow prostitution solicitation. excessive noise due to new train line being built(24/7building). good thing about hotel is it is across road from big-big department store PARKSONS, has ice skating ring,many luxury shops,lots of restuarants. hotel still has not updated entertainment(ie. tv is CRT not LED,)and only has chinese tv but remotes don't work properly, hot water is not hot, toilets are western but don't flush properly or are broken, in room safes are broken and you have to request working safes...BREAKFAST is a ripe-off 18rmb for guests but very poor food and little amount for 18rmb(just go across road to PARKSONS...overall I cant write everything wrong because I will have to ask for book signing fees(hahaha!!) my overall rating is low *-** stars.. hotel has really fallen in standards since my last stay and staff don't speak even basic English..
