A nice stayPosted Aug 19, 2013 on Hotels.com
We stayed at the Eastern Pearl Hotel for two nights during a weekend in Nanjing, and thought it was a very nice hotel. When we first arrived the front desk initially could not locate our reservation (it was very helpful to have the confirmation email from hotels.com on my tablet, since it included the information in Chinese). They were very kind about everything, though, which was a nice departure from some other experiences in China in which people sometimes got upset with us for things like that. The man at the desk made a number of phonecalls and was able to locate our reservation, and after only about 10-15 minutes we were on the way up to the room. Everything was clean and looked nice, and the air conditioning worked well (that was important in August!) I agree with other reviewers that the construction noise was unfortunate, but it wasn't so bad that it affected our stay much at all. If I'm in Nanjing again I will definitely consider staying here, depending on where I need to be in the city.

Renovations completed - then maybe OK?Posted Aug 15, 2013 on Hotels.com
Only an overnight stay. Location is OK. Room had everything I needed. The hotel is currently undergoing renovations, so room I thought I was getting was not available. Once renovations completed, happy to recommend. Do not take the hotel taxi. Better to walk onto the street and flag taxi. Pay quarter of the price. No transfers to airport or train station. Overall, money for value was not there. Have stayed similar hotels for half the price and breakfast was included. Would I stay there again? Probably not.

Close to McDonaldPosted May 17, 2013
Pros: Service Maids are polite and hard-working
Cons: Taxi driver can not find the entrance. Gate keeper seems unhelipful to let the taxi with client back to hotel
Quite far away from the subway station. Next year. a new subway line would provide a new station around the corner.

Good locationPosted May 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
Good location though it is not very near to the MRT station. Hailing a cab is a problem in Nanjing. The check in and check out process was very fast and the counter staff was very efficient and friendly. The concierge also was very friendly and explained in details abt the places of interest in Nanjing.

people were very friendly and helpful, but the room we stayed was kind of old and worn.

A good find in a great cityPosted Apr 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
The Eastern Pearl hotel is in a great location. Within minutes you are at eateries (western and Chinese) and are close to the subway stations. The staff were extremely kind and helpful. The only downside is that the new subway line is being constructed beside the hotel and work starts early (of course, not the fault of the hotel). I will be staying here again should I go back to Nanjing.

Internet access slowPosted Apr 4, 2013
Main issue: internet is slow. Am expecting 10MB internet for similar business hotels. Minor issue: shower place too small and there is some kind of smell in the room.

Good OptionPosted Apr 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
I had a pleasant 1-night stay at the Eastern Pearl. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk to either subway line and very close to the 1912 district and the Imperial Palace. The location is fairly central. Staff's level of English was almost non-existent, but otherwise they were courteous and prompt. The room was a good size and comfortable. There was one stain on the table, other than that it clean and and in very good condition. The wifi was decent, not great. Overall, this is a good option for the price .
