I stayed here with a band that was playing Spring Scream early April, as it's the closest hotel to the festival grounds - so can't really complain about the location. The hotel has a pool (no smoking, eating, drinking, breathing or having fun - and swim cap mandatory) which is closed between 12h-14h, not great for us as this was right between getting up and going to the festival when we had time for a dip.
The service is sub-par, not a language issue as I speak mandarin. The reception took a while to acknowledge us at check-in, didn't point out which direction our room was in, generally looking exasperated when we had any questions to ask and for check out called at exactly 12h to ask us to vacate the room (we were closing the last bags and were down shortly after). The internet speed reminded me of a good old 14.4k modem.... (as in loading an email took time) and to say the breakfast buffet was anything but a disappointment would be a lie - again, not a cultural/taste thing, I've been in Asia 20yrs and lost the craving for western food a while back.
We paid a pretty steep rate (it is a long weekend and there was a festival on - so high demand), however I really didn't feel it was good value outside our being close to the festival.More
