    Restaurant: staff were exemplary. Hard working and kind. Alice and Ollie splendid. Room: 19th floor. Spacious, comfortable and clean.

    Gone: the lovely, comfy, quiet, carpeted lobby lounge and bar with snacks. Being replaced with an Art shop! Consequently, lobby is noisy and barren. Gone: the warm welcome on arrival. Two staff outside didn't move when the trunk with luggage opened. Instead said sternly and loudly "Pay, pay"! Gone: friendly check-in. The girl didn't even look up from the computer and just said "Passport!" I said "Hello?" and again "Passport! Passport!". Her desk covered in paper debris. Gone: well maintained Fitness Centre. 12 ceiling lights broken, including both in sauna. Shower fittings rusty, broken door handles, cracked tiles and terrible smell. Gone: in restaurant, pure juice replaced with cheap cordial; real yoghurt replaced by synthetic yoghurt dispenser. Gone: 2 of the 5 elevators out of action for long term renovation, during the high season??? Long waits... Gone: the nice Business Centre!! Gone: the hotel ATM machine!! Gone: hotel bar. Horrendously noisy jackhammering! Apparently there are new owners. They're definitely NOT improving what was a well managed, welcoming hotel.

    The staff was always here for me. Some of them speak english very well. They did help me get a taxi, and also when I checked in my card didn't pass, they were very patient and tried multiple times. I really liked the cleaning lady, she did gave me water bottles every morning and tea. The location is very convenient. There is a carrefour in front of the hostel and some shopping mall nearby.

    The breakfast was not that international. It tly chinese. But I think that is because they were a lot of chinese in the hostel. The quality-price ratio is not that good, it's a bit pricy for what you get. The japanese/chinese restaurant were closed. I did have to go out to get dinner. The hostel offers dinner but since the breakfast was not good, I didn't want to try it. Overall the hostel is quite old, you can get a modern hostel for the same price. But I will come back, because the staff is caring.

    The hotel is well located! Some staff can speak English.

    The swimming pool was really cold during our stay. We couldn't swim (16 degrees).

    location, facilities, cleanliness, value for money all good. Housekeeping staff was very courteous and good. Front desk girls struggled to help with English translation. Sales Manager Ms.Helen Wu was very helpful and appreciated.

    No front office staff could manage even little bit of English. Breakfast was overpriced; not worth 80 yuan at all.

    Staff was very nice and helpful. Location was good with many cafes and restaurants nearby. I'm glad I booked Family room, big and spacious enough for a family with 2 kids.

    We requested non-smoking room, but we ended up in a smoking floor and the smell of it was unpleasant. Sadly staff's English skills were very limited.
