You can get better value,Outdated, avoid SPA
Posted Apr 11, 2012
This Hotel is located next to the Big Wild Goose Pagoda, a lovely park, and a big shopping area(it costs about 15Y (in 2012) to get to the city centre - approx 10km).The hotel hall and garden are beautiful. The receptionists and bus boys were able to speak English even if with some difficulties. The restaurant is ok, although nothing special. Nobody in the restaurant could speak English, so much that they couldnt understand Sprite or Coca Cola. The room itself was a nice size, with a nice LCD TV, 2 Channels in English both News only. The decor of the room is very outdated besides the TV, I am assuming the last time that they changed furniture/carpets/courtains was the 80s. The bathroom was also quite outdated but clean and with complimentary toiletry. The BIG LET DOWN was the SPA services which was one of the reasons why I booked this hotel. When I went for a massage, they werent able to speak English and understand what service i wanted even if I pointed at their price board. Besides this I was taken into a bedroom, and I felt quite uncomfortable as it looked more like a place for gentlemen let's say. There were 3 ladies there, one of which was very rude, as she was talking Mandarin and laughing while I was undressing. The massage was with no oils and again it was done on a normal bed, it felt very strange and not nice. For the price I paid I expected more, above all If comparing it to the hotel that I was staying in Beijing which cost me the same and was modern and central.
