Good hotel in a great location
Posted Oct 26, 2015
Located close to the city landmark JieFangBei and walking distance to chaotianmen where the Yangze river and Jialing river merge, this residence hotel is a great option in ChongQing, and I was glad I chose it over another hotel chain.
The mattress, pillows are comfortable. Room is clean and you can walk in socks. It has a small kitchen with all necessities for cooking (however I never tried, who would cook if you have abundant restaurants and street food around) and a washer. Very centrally located, walking distance to all downtown attractions. Very friendly and helpful staff. Good wifi coverage throughout. Getting around is pretty easy too, including to the airport, as it's 3 minutes walk to the light rail station of line 1 and 6.
Things to improve:
1. The breakfast has both western and Chinese food, the selection is ok but it's way too plain and of low quality, which I think it's a shame that the hotel is in the city where SiChuan food is originated.
2. I happened to be in Chongqing when the heat wave hit in mid October. It was 30c degrees during the day. For some strange reason the air conditioning was only operating during the day but was turned off at mid night by the mysterious "engineering group" and the room temperature would soar to 25c, very uncomfortable. I complained almost daily, and finally on my last night the air con was working all night.
Overall, this is a very good price performance hotel and it's highly recommended.
