I ended up not staying in this hotel after having paid for 2 nights. The place was dirty - mould and stains on the carpet, and a whiff of bad smell in the room. I was offered an upgrade to the best rooms - God bless the staff - but it didn't change my mind because the condition of the place is not up to five-star standard. It's below 3 star. Apart from the filth, the rooms and the lobby are poorly appointed, cheesy and gaudy and full of noisy people. The location is good because the hotel is in right next to the Confucius Temple area with all the shops and next to the Qin-Huai river.
