Hotel is listed as having free broadband access. In reality non-existent. Used a nearby "Italian" cafe which produced amazing food and free broadband. Hotel is rather tired and tried to hike price which had been reserved through Expedia.

This hotel was ok. Heavy on tours but at $300RMB whos complaining. Only problem is that they do not turn on AC until 8pm and it was really, really hot.

I recently stayed at this hotel with my wife as part of a short tour of China arranged by China Connection Tours, a company who I can heartily recommend for their efficient and friendly service which made you feel like a person not just a number. The hotel was in a very good location next to the Li river and...

This was a medium class hotel that was okay and in a good location. The rooms were clean and provided good views over the river. Speaking to other guests, they felt their rooms were a little substandard however the one we had I guess must have been recently refurbished as had new sanitary ware. Cheap and good quality meals in...
