I work in Nanjing 1 or 2 times a year and accommodation is paid for by work arrangements. The price is reasonable considering I'm there for 2 to 3 weeks at a time. The problems is that I probably get the worst rooms because I'm a captured client and the better rooms are made available for tourists and the usual Chinese weekenders that love the place. For me 3 out of 4 times the air con does not work and management claim it's turned off in Winter. This is policy for Chinese Hotels but shouldn't be the case for international standard hotels. Clearly this hotel is not international and that's one reason I'm allowed to stay there paid by Chinese funds.
The hotel is impressive in its grandeur but it is old. I wouldn't hold that against them and the price is appropriate for its age. The website is WAY out of date. There hasn't been an Italian restaurant in the building for at least 4 years (despite the signs in one elevator and the web page saying it's on the top floor). So some signs haven't changed in 4 years and neither has the menu changed (breakfast nor dinner). If you get a room with a non-functioning air con, expect humid air with the slight smell of burnt bearings (from the fans in the central system) to permeate your room. If you're lucky you might get a room with a window that opens, otherwise just suck it up for your stay. Staff are friendly and will help where they can. Guys at the front door are usually really good. Rooms are old and showing the wear. It's true the showers are in need of renovation and many are moldy.
