Tips for you
The building and rooms show its age but cleanliness is not jeopardized. It may not be spotless but rooms and bathrooms are comfortable enough. Basic amenities in the room are available like TV, hairdryer, AC, toiletries and other hotel compendiums. There is no breakfast cafe and no room service. Nevertheless, decent bakeries and many convenience stores like 7-11 and Family Mart are just walking distance. Not to forget the Mc Donald's which is 5 min walk away and Starbucks at 8mins by foot. Local noodle shops open a bit late for someone who wakes up at 7am like me. I think the shops open at 10:30am. At mid-day, the area gets alive with the lined up noodle and dimsum shops. Push cart goodies are also around. Several Seafood Restos and Japanese Restos are within the vicinity. Ximendeng is just 10mins by car, the nearest bus station is just 5mins by foot and the ZhongShang train station is just 15min walk (which is not too long as you can window shop as you walk) The staff upgrades my rating for this hotel. They are very friendly. Even friendlier than Thai hospitality (as I describe it). They may not speak English well but the effort counts as much. I would like them to upgrade the rooms and modernize it a bit and a buffet breakfast will be great. Price and value though is amazing!
