location

Posted Nov 17, 2016
Pros: budget pricing
Cons: need some renovation, especially toilet area
Location: near to hotel a lot of stores, selling food/fruits, etc
not near the train station nor bus station, need to take a taxi to reach the hotel, approx RMB 15 for signseeing at Tianmenshan, was not very convenience but next to hotel, there are few shops of food stores, convenience to have breakfast lunch and dinner

Clean and comfortable

Posted May 14, 2015
This hotel was excellent for the price. The room was clean, spacious, well-lit, and very comfortable. Staff spoke very little English, but were always very pleasant and did their best to communicate with you. There is not much nearby that is not entirely in Chinese, but it is only a short taxi ride from the train/bus station and airport, so transportation within the city is very affordable. It is about 40-50 minutes from the National Park (take a taxi to the bus station, and then a bus to the park... WAY cheaper!) Significantly cheaper alternative to the pricier hotels located near the park, or the 5-star hotels.

Hotel room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. Air outside the hotel was very bad from vehicles and burning wood.

Great hotel for the price

Posted May 20, 2014
Pros: The price
Cons: English of staff or my Chines.
Location: It's about a 10 to 15 minute walk to a bus stop that takes you out to Zhangjiajie Ntl park (from Avatar), Quick cab ride to cable car for Heavens Gate
The hotel was good for the price. We had clean room and bathroom. The hotel staff did not speak English very well, but enough to get checked in and help to find the cable car to the Tianmen mountain for Heavens Gate. They had a series of cards with English/Chinese sentences to help with check in. Very good deal for the price.

Great Value

Posted Oct 15, 2013 on Hotels
The hotel was nice, particularly considering the price. There was nothing special about the surrounding area, but the hotel was a cheap taxi ride to the attractions and the train station. Our only complaint was the crazy loud traffic horns (even by China standards), but there is not really anything that the hotel can do about this.

Visit to the Avatar inspired mountains

There are plenty of hotels to make a big dent in your wallet, most are located near the East gate to the park I'd already stayed in 2 JJI's on this trip and was expecting a similar experience. This hotel was located on a main street near the city centre, dont blink its a small city Its not near any of the bright lights, and is a gentle 30 mins walk from the nearest western fast food

BADDDDD STAFF

Posted Jun 21, 2013 on Hotels
Only thing i can say is that the staff is awful. For people looking to stay for 2 or 3 nights, the hotel is price convenient. Take bus No.6 (it will bring you to the bus station to go to the national park and also bring you to the cable car for Tianmen Mountain). The room is pretty clean so go for it but do not expect help.

Pretty decent hotel overall, but far from the park

Make sure you get directions and address IN CHINESE before you get a taxi to this hotel!! Hotel is nice, rooms are really clean and nice and bright, and shower is separate from bathroom area which is not as common for China (bonus!) Reception can't speak much english at all, so just make sure to look up directions and attractions ahead of time, or using reception area wifi. Negatives: wifi NOT in room, only in reception area. One of the days it completely dropped out and they said there was nothing they could do about it (makes it hard to look up directions and maps, etc, if they don't speak english and you have no wifi!) Shower water was sometimes cold-ish. If you plan to go to Zhangjiajie National Park, its much more convenient to stay up at Wulingyuan or the upper part of Zhangjiajie , otherwise you need to take a 10-20 RMB taxi from this hotel to the bus station, then a 12 RMB bus to the park.

OK Hotel

Posted Mar 28, 2013
Very little english spoken, but the girls at reception used their I phones with google translate to answer my questions. Same with restaurant staff very helpful working out some dinner for me. My room was recently renovated and was quite spacious . Bathroom was not touched, and was a liitle worn, No Wifi only in foyer, rooms had cable, but I couldn't get it to work. Hotel has some small supermarket type shops nearby. Main shops were 15-2o min walk or 6-10 RMB tax ($1-2)
