Despite what others may say, our experience at Jinjiang was great and very much SMOKE FREE! I was skeptical about booking this hotel after reading one of the other reviews referring to this supposedly being a "smoker's haven," especially since my wife is very allergic to cigarette smoke. I looked for it. I sniffed for it. To my pleasant surprise, I couldn't find it!
Jinjiang was a great hotel located right by the Inner Mongolia University, one street over from the Victory Mall, and not very far from the Train Station.
Our Deluxe King room was very luxurious with a shower AND a separate tub! We had wifi from our room (not easily marked, though), which was nice given the computer they provided in the room was not working. The wifi didn't seem to be accessible in hotel lobby.
The bed could be described from a Western standpoint as a "firm but soft" mattress. The Chinese perspective would say this is a "very soft" mattress.
Look, this is China. There will be smoking, especially in public. There might even be a smoker or three in the massive, beautiful lobby of the hotel. It's part of the culture. If you can't except and move past the smoking, you'll be miserable the whole time you're in China.
