“Clean and Modern hotel”
Reviewed 6 July 2012

The hotel itself isn't facing the main road, and can be a little tricky to find. But this also means that the rooms are quiet. Check in was swift with very helpful and courteous staff. The room itself was very clean and well equipped. Although Wifi was only available in the lobby, LAN cables were offered for use in the room and was free of charge. Didn't get to try out the pool, but when we walked past at 9am, it was closed even though the information book states that it is open from 7am. The hotel was also conveniently located within walking distance to many malls and small restaurants.

Overall good.
The bed had a sag in the middle, it was not even.
Too much construction noise over the week end Saturday and Sunday. Difficult to sleep in on Saturday/Sunday morning when construction workers would start concrete drilling at 8.00am.

The price of the hotel is a joke, not sure if compared with Papua New Guinea or a place in the middle of the desert but a Novotel for 70 Euro’s a night is definitely a bargain. Not even bought via a discounter but strait from the Accor website. Make sure you have the address written in Chinese prior to your arrival otherwise no one will find it. Having the telephone number to call and hand over to the driver is finally the only answer. Located down town! Sort off considering the city is huge and has several down towns. The hotel by itself is what you expect even more. Brand new everything and is perfect regarding the hardware. Rooms are large and comfortable with all amenities and even more that one would expect. Having said the above one must be prepared to struggle a bit if you’re not a well-traveled multilingual person. No one speaks English or French. You have a choice between Mandarin and Cantonese for communication. Hotel was totally empty. Breakfast buffet is surreal; everything is there Chinese food, Japanese food, French or American style the choice is yours. Just that it’s a bit weird to heat alone in a restaurant for 200 people? Staff very helpful and smiling all the time however they basically don’t understand what you say or what you want. In a nut shell yes I would stay there again but will have a translator on hand if I need something from the hotel. I suggest Accor hires at least 3 staff on rotation for the concierge position to be able to facilitate communication with clients. I also hired a limousine with a driver from the hotel for a full day in order to go to my meetings all over the city. Paid 100 Euro’s for 9 hours and drove about 120 Km, no complains. Internet is free but certain sites are off limits due to China regulations.
