This hotel is absolutely crappy. No one speaks English, so it is impossible to communicate and the staff at the reception is surly and avoids eye contact. The room was dirty, the bathtub had a rim of brown dirt all along the border, the shower curtain had a filthy brown border. This is the only hotel throughout our visit in China and Hong Kong where we found condoms provided in the bathroom, leading me to believe that this hotel is used for other purposes than accommodating foreign visitors. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant because there was nothing else available in the vicinity of the hotel and the food was of a poor quality in addition to the challenge of communication since no one spoke a word of English. It was impossible to sleep because of the loud honking of the road traffic below all the time except perhaps between 12.30 and 04.30 am. The hotel has no currency exchange facilities either. Even though the UNESCO Heritage Sites of Longmen Grottoes and the Shaolin temple are marvellous, I would advise visitors to skip these marvels altogether if cleaner, hygienic and better accommodation in Luoyang is not available.
I believe TUI China does a great disservice both to its customers as well as to the great nation of China by checking their visitors into such a crappy hotel and conveying a terrible impression of the country to the visitors."
