No amenities, uncomfortable beds, little English spoken. There are non working refrigerators in the rooms - and they won'y replace them. Sinks are cracked, shower doors don't keep water out of bathroom. Safe in room did not work. Thermostat blasts heat only, regardless of setting.

I had no problems during my stay. Quick check in and quick check out. 200 RMB deposit needed. I stayed on the 32nd floor. Great views and very quiet. Big bed and good shower. Wifi so so. Cleaned each day. Basic facilities you'd expect in any hotel. Staff helpful. I was impressed and happy with my choice. Location. Jishan Road...

Rooms are quite nice and comfortable to stay for longer time, usually they offer washing machine to wash clothes but now it was not available for a no-reason. Nearby there is a metro station which makes the location quite nice.

RAYFONT Hotel consists of 4 toers, each with ~40 floors. It is an older hotel but clean and comfortable. Well suitable for business visitors who use the room for sleeping only. There are only 2 elevators in each building. As the hotel is usually very busy, one needs to be patient when checking in and out. I will definitely come...

spent 4 nights here. 1 adult business traveler. booked through ANA package deal with my flight from Japan. Arrival was no problem. Checkin was a hassle. It was about 6pm and there were about 10 people in line and only 2 clerks at the front desk. Neither of them spoke either a little English, and both had bad, impatient attitudes....

This hotel was a bit of a let down, the room had wall paper peeling off the walls, Being English speaking made it hard to check in as the person serving me knew as much English as I knew Chinese, I was fortunate enough to have a Chinese speaking person who was able to come and help the check in...

The hotel staff was helpful and responsive when I reported my refrigerator was not working. Safe also not working and Heat/Air had not yet been turned on for the winter (so no heat for the room). The room was reasonably clean and cleaning staff was good. Breakfast had mostly Chinese offerings (well...we WERE in China after all)...but there were pastries,...

Decent room and service. Great city view at night. Convenient location. Close to Sun Moon Light center for lots of great food choices as well as metro station. Booked last year and this year again. Hotel is getting old.
