People seem fussy. I travel in UK good hotels on business and bed and breakfast when I pay. I have stayed in Shangri La group hotels which are very good. obviously this is not in that class it is not a "Luxury Hotel" If you do not travel expecting 5star luxury for medium prices this hotel is quite OK staff...

We stayed at the Golden Elephant for 2 nights and booked online as we needed an early check in as we were arriving in the morning on the sleeper train from Shenzen. This was no problem and they let myself, my husband and our 2 year old check in at 8am. They even had a baby cot ready for us....

This was the best hotel we stayed at during a 3 week trip to China (but considering some of the places we stayed this is not saying much).

The cafe was empty the whole time we were there, giving it a desolate vibe. There...

Having previously read poor reports from this site we were not expecting much, however we were pleasantly suprised. We arrived late and left early but had chance to look and around and have a drink on the terrace in the hotel, very nice. Next to the river, it was lit up at night and was very pleasant. Rooms were very...

We spend 2 nights in this hotel coming from Yangshuo. We stay in a standard double room with tween beds for 310 RMB per nights. Breakfast is Russian Siberia likely, very sad and cheap.. Position is OK but try to find another hotel at that price

We stayed at the Golden Elephant Hotel for 2 nights on the way to and from Beijing. There are better 3 star hotels available in the area so unless you really are forced to stay here I would give it a wide berth. The whole hotel has a depressing, dark and run down atmosphere and the rooms are cramped and...
