Business hotel for the Chinese, not Westerners
Posted May 17, 2016 on Wotif
We picked this hotel for it's centrality to the CBD, thinking we could access things easily, but this is not a hotel for Westerners as the staff have no English and could not understand when we were asking for directions. Everything is in Chinese, and it took us two days to find the Tourist Information Centre and get a map in English. There are no tourist buses to do a city sights tour, and definitely not with an English guide, so it was very frustrating and disappointing not to be able to see much at all.
There is only a Chinese style breakfast offered in the restaurant next door, and no toilets in the foyer when you have checked out. The room was quite large, with a lovely big bathroom and good shower, but the mattress was terrible! It was like sleeping on wooden boards and we both woke up with backache.
