We stayed 2 nights. Our stay was pleasant, but used only for sleeping there - arriving 10pm and leaving by 10am next morning. Read on some review sites (Chinese) that people had to pay for hot water - this was NOT our case and hot water was available. 5th floor room facing the road in front of the hotel is not an issue. Decor so so - do not expect miracles, but room generally clean. Only downside was the lack of a door between the bedroom and bathroom.
Very good hotel apartments on main street in front of shoes market, not very far frm metro 10 minutes walk .
Spacious clean rooms with good ameneties but need to add utensils to use in cuisine and a wadhing machine.
They have problems with their expedia account so don't book them through expedua to save the troubles checking in.
nice and clean , please expect room to be small and tiny -- tiny toilet & bathroom---room strictly suitable for small Asian sizes ---only enough space for cabin luggage --however location is near to wholesale main street 5 min walk---security is good --u need room card to access your floor ---wifi is free ---although the outer building looks old --decor inside room is new ----breakfast across the street --dumpling, chicken frog porridge all very cheap & nice
Whilst I will always stay here for the location, being right in the heart of the jewellery wholesale area, I would not recommend it for any other reason. I asked for a fridge in my room which never arrived. The wifi internet is only in the lobby and was a poor connection. You could not buy even a lemonade or snack in the hotel. There was no restaurant, however, you could order take away which was delivered to your room. There was always an english speaking person at reception. They had limited English but we could communicate ok.
The beds are typical Chinese style, being like a block of wood with a one inch piece of foam. They are horrid to try and sleep on. The third time I requested another doona I received it. I then folded this in half to give me some degree of softness to the bed. Bed comfort, I think this is the most important factor in choosing your hotel. My most comfortable and best nights sleep was in the plane coming home!
The street food is available all around with a good restaurant just down the road, a 2 minute walk.
As I said in the title, if you are shopping for Jade, silver or beads, then this is the hotel can not be overlooked for location.
