More like 3 1/2 stars but not 4.
Arriving at the hotel I had a problem with the taxi driver. There is a guy with an earpiece who calls for help. There is no one to greet you or help with luggage.
I had to wait until someone with the from desk arrived. Since there are quite a few stairs to walk up the hotel should always have someone on hand to help with luggage. Not an earpiece guy to call and wait for someone.
After checking in I asked for the concierge. They seemed confused. I said I was interested in a river tour. They handed me a brochure in Chinese. Enough said about that.
The area was not what I expected, The river walk is mostly boring Chinese restaurants with no menus with photos. It seemed half of the store fronts were boarded up. The nearby restaurants that had menus with photos were 2 star at best. All low end places. The hotel restaurant's ala carte menu was also pretty boring. If you want to go out to eat for dinner you could be stuck in traffic for a long time. So better not to go back to the hotel. Now I know why this hotel was such a good deal. Location sucked. Luckily with daytime traffic a decent place to visit is only about 20 minutes away. Lunch at Paradise walk only cost 23 RMB in the low cost taxis. The nearest MTR is about an 8 minute drive.
The room is the best part about the hotel. Decent size, comfortable bed and pillows. Clean. International channels on TV. Nice bathroom.
Employees were always cheerful and friendly.
When checking out at 5:30 AM there are plenty of taxis. Terminal 3 was only 25 minutes and 50 RMB. [Less]
