Recent guest reviews
The design of the hotel is very traditional and impressive. Breakfast is wonderful. Location wise, the hotel is connected to the Pan Men Gate attraction and entrance for hotel guests is free. The canal cruise tour is about 100 metres away and eateries are all nearby. Great hotel atmosphere, quite and serene. However, the room had an unpleasant odour, emitted when the air-con was initially turned on. It lingered throughout the stay, especially at the toilet area. The maintenance of the room is also quite bad with one of tiles popping out from the wall of the bath tub. I should have asked for a change of room, but it was too much of a hassle.
The hotel has a design of an ancient fort that gives way to intricate courtyard gardens and accommodation and restaurants. A morning walk after breakfast will take you to a sprawling park will numerous tai chi practitioners. Sweeping roof lines and zigzag bridges surround the lake and can be viewed from the mountain pavilion
Stayed here for 2 nights. Best hotel I've stayed at in China. Big rooms, good breakfast and absolutely fabulous gardens to walk through - other people pay just to walk through these gardens, visit the old city walls that are in the gardens, the pagoda and the other attractions - all this is free for hotel guests.
The hotel looks a bit austere from the road and the room locations are rather maze like but not a bad place. Just to be different the hotel reception is located on the third floor and it was suggested we exit the hotel from there (via lifts) The rear gardens are attractive as is the ground floor dinning room. The breakfast buffet was good. The hotel is reasonably located just down the road from what appears to be a colourful city centre. The room was reasonable, once you found it.
2nd night stay on our tour, this hotel looked AMAZING from the street and lobby. We were so tired from early morning flights and ground transportation that we were very happy when we checked in. However, the rooms are worn out, furniture is scratched up, patio door could not latch or lock, shower door would not stay closed, and smoking is allowed inside the building, so that stink was all around. The buffet restaurant looked awesome, but was $50 CDN per person and turned out that 80% of the food was too foreign to be palatable. Beds were okay, they fixed the patio door IMMEDIATELY and the breakfast buffet was pretty good. Not recommended, at full price, whatsoever. Glad it was heavily discounted because of our tour.
We had a short stay as we arrived late and had to leave early. Breakfast was the best we had on our whole tour. Ground are very nice garden setting. There is some shops near by. The layout of the hotel is very confusing. Our room was in the dungeon. Furthest from anything. Needs a reno
Really beautiful looking hotel, but unfortunately the rooms are in need of a bit of attention. Staff were helpful and friendly and the hotel backs on to a park which is really convenient. Price is on the high side, but it is located walking distance to restaurants which was great
We stayed one night as part of a Nexus tour. The hotel is an old palace and the grounds are beautiful. As it is so large with a couple of wings it is easy to get confused. Our room was on the bottom floor and looked out onto a pottery storage area. Not ideal. The rooms on the opposite side of the corridor looked into a central courtyard that was lovely. The beds were a little hard but still comfortable. The best part of the stay was the buffet breakfast. Lots of fresh fruit and a western food selection as well as eastern food selection. Staff were very courteous. The area around the hotel had enough shops to be interesting.
Rooms are clean, comfortable beds, lots of hot water, quiet. A/C--heat works but it's one of the old systems where no matter where you put the thermostat you get heat in the winter from a pipe that's just one temperature. Provides entertainment rotating the dial if you enjoy that. There are tons of tourist groups. Dinner buffet must be nice as it is 295 yuan (almost 50 USD)--more expensive than anywhere I have been. You can eat across the street for 50 yuan and it's just fine at several restaurants over there. There are little gardens on this hotel property that abut a city park for a beautiful walk. Very lovely hotel.
Special thanks to the many delightful young staff members. Anissa added a touch of home speaking English and French. The Chinese team at the front desk is always full of smiles and helpfulness. Jack, Karen, Anna and others. I prefer a view of the garden and pagoda outside of to the hotel Breakfast is very good as a Chinese and Western combination. Looking out from breakfast into the hotel garden is relaxing and helpful to tune into the Chinese way of seeing life. Rooms do show wear, but the overall experience makes this small shortcoming go away.
