"'All Fur Coat and No Knickers' as my old nan says"
Yes it looked the part but didn't live up to it. Sorry this wasn't a pleasant stay, maybe one step too far for this English visitor. Carpets were heavily stained and it didn't look as if the room had been prepared properly the floor had hair and bits on it and remained dirty throughout our stay and there was black mould around the bath, couldn't get wifi unless you had a laptop, took two changes to get a working safe and it was often very noisy at night. A fellow traveler had to change rooms part way through the stay because the door lock became faulty. If you wanted Chinese food for breakfast or a fried or hard boiled egg every day you were fine. The toaster and coffee machine often didn't work. Little or no English spoken by staff.

"English a problem, food marginal, checkout was..."
While the hotel is clean and the people are nice, English for them is a problem. Therefore comunication is a bit limited at times requiring you to be transferred to several people when trying to set a wake up call time with the desk. The Western food selection is also limited with the quality being a bit disappointing. But what really dissapointed me was when I went to checkout. I asked the front desk to let me pay for the food and laudry services separately with cash (my companies policy) and they said sure, but we will have charge you an extra day's stay for the 10 minute to do this... That really put a damper on it, so next time I will give the Shangra La Hotel a try first.
