Recent guest reviews
To be fair, the entire trip was a bit of a bust so I might be biased by the general unpleasantness of my whole experience. Let's start with location, taxis do NOT drive that way, so make sure you print out the map and have the address written out in Chinese as well as English. It took me two hours of walking around to find it. However, once you find it, you're in walking distance of the subway, and quite a few enjoyable sites. Next, atmosphere and room cleanliness. It was a bit dingy and run down, especially the carpet. I'd definitely recommend they pull up that carpet and go to a shoes off policy or something in the future. The floor was so stained and grimy, I didn't want to touch that carpet with my stocking-ed feet! Staff... the staff was...okay. I commend them on their English. However, I couldn't rely on them to help me with booking tours or outings as they clearly have a deal with certain expensive groups. For example, they told me the only way I could see the Great Wall was if I went on a specific 700 Yuan tour. But after I booked it I found another traveler who had found one for 100 Yuan but had to bribe the staff to call and reserve the spot for him. ALSO, I prepaid for my stay online, but they didn't have a record of it. They kept insisting I pay again, if I hadn't been stubborn and had my receipt with me, I'd have paid for everything twice!
I was attacked by a 6 inch centipede in the middle of the night! I woke up to this nasty thing biting me all over!! I was a horrifying experience! DO NOT STAY HERE!
