This hotel used to have name Lexington. You still can find it on particular design elements. Although quality has been changed. Rooms are getting older. Towels look like being used for years. Breakfast service is so so, food is not replenished timely. Staff can speak English, but hard to even get taxi with them. Advantages is quite big rooms and bathroom, location of hotel is suitable for foreigners- a lot of places to spend time around.
Highlights: Staff is friendly and speak english Breakfast area located on top floor is big and wide, content is good, includes some western type food aswell as korean and chinese options, included with the room rate Location is ideal to hit some shopping Rooms are big Lowlights Although rooms are big like studio or suite type they feel old style and dark You can see the shower and bathroom from the bed through a window, nice thing that can be closed and avoid this if you dont want to have such view :) Carpet had stains Overall I would say is ok for short stay business or family trip, not the best hotel around
Lovely hotel in a good location. Staff are very helpful and some are fluent in English. The bedrooms are large, with WIFI and a desk as this hotel caters for people in the business community. The bathroom is typical of those in the North East and has a glass pane looking directly into the bathroom from the bedroom. Breakfast is included and is well worth it, with a choice of both Chinese and English cuisine. The staff are extremely friendly and were interested in our visit to Shenyang It offered extremely good value for money.
We stayed for 1 night in this hotel. The room was very large.. more like a suite than a normal hotel room. It was clean and had everything we needed. The staff were efficient and courteous. We didn't eat in the hotel so cannot comment on the food. Overall the hotel was a nice experience. The décor is a little dated but well maintained and clean so perfectly fine. We would stay here again.
I stayed in this place on 2 occasions last week for a conference organised by our company...as i live in Shenyang i did not actually sleep in the hotel, but had a chance to look at the rooms and the conference facility....well, rooms are indeed huge and well appointed. with mini fridge and a safe...as other said here: rooms are too hot and no way to turn it down even with windows open. No wifi in the hotel is a big miss and would not stay here becuase of the lack of it.Conference facilities are nice, but service staff slow and looking like they really do not want to be there....sleeping behind your desk is not a good sign....food was reasonable, but having 2 banquets you might assume that there is a bit more creativity in food choice.....the meatballs that were not eaten were found back in the soup the next day....and then: why use your maintenance staff ( you know, the guys who make repairs in their blue working outfit) to bring food into the banquet hall.....cannot afford enough decently clothed waiters?
Good location. Excellent value dinner buffet. Stupid heating system. Despite arriving at noon, switching off the floor heating immediately, opening the window to the subzero outdoor temperatures (and pollution) and turning on the fan, the room, which was nice and spacious, was still too hot to sleep comfortably in 12 hours later. Crazy business decision. Crazy in a city and country with such serious pollution and energy issues. Also no inroom wifi. Try and get a high floor looking away from the main road.
We stayed in Shenyang for 6 days and this hotel was close to our son's apartment. We had a junior suite, which was very large. A large living area consisted of a sofa and two chairs and of course the TV which was a flat screen. The living are also had a mini bar which was not included with the exception of the coffee/ tea. The bedroom was huge and also had a small office area, desk and chair. I did ask for wi-fi in the room and that request was accommodated. The bed was comfortable and there was a chair, TV, and safe in the bedroom. There is no privacy between the bedroom and living area; it is an open area. The safe can be cranky and is a bit cumbersome to use. You have to push a button behind the door, enter the code, then enter the code again. The safes need to be replaced and updated. There are shelves in the bedroom. I would have preferred a closet in the bedroom for convenience. The closet (small) was located just inside the entry door. The bathroom is very large, huge soaking tub ( bring your bubble bath) and the shower is wonderful. There is the usual amenities: blow dryer, mirror attached to the wall for make-up/ shaving purposes and sewing kit, bath gel, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush, toothpaste, etc. there are also two bottles of water for which use to brush your teeth. You are provided a pair of slippers every day. The hotel was quiet, very clean and restful. The breakfast buffet was very good and have they had so many wonderful choices. American style choices, Asian choices and even some European meat/ cheese choices. Of course, there are also made to order items. I wish the coffee would have been better and the juice was a wee bit watered down. You will not go hungry! Like another reviewer, I was dismayed that a soon as you enter the hotel lobby you are overcome with the overwhelming smell of smoke due to no restrictions anywhere with regard to smoking which is very common in China. I felt like I was visiting Las Vegas back in the day. The lobby is adjoined by a lounge which would have been nice place to relax,but the smoke was too much. The location is excellent, close to the subway (which we took to Imperial City) and is a few steps away from the mall, which has excellent choices for food and also has a great grocery store. The staff at the Lexington were very nice and accommodating and I appreciate all the hard work they did to make our stay pleasurable. I would return to the Lexington again on my next trip as the price and location were worth putting up with the incessant smoke. I will say that for all the smoking going on in the hotel, our room did not smell smokey, nor were we annoyed by smoke wafting into our room.
This is a very nice place to stay in. The room is huge!! Bed is huge and very good to sleep in. location is good, near to supermarkets and shopping mall. Toilet are very spacious too. The only thing is that it doesn't have wifi in the room. only cable connection. all in all 10/10.. good!!!
The hotel is very good, the rooms are big and the bed is comfortable. The breakfast has good options. The location is also good, near to supermarkets and shopping mall. The only problem is that there is no wireless in the rooms, only cable connection.
We used the Lexington for a workshop. Conference facilities are very good. Very friendly and helpful staff. The restaurant on the top floor was also good. We also used the travel service on the 6th floor to book some train tickets Over all a great hotel
