We were there during a holiday so they were charging a whopping 1,600 rmb per night. By gouging their guests, it tells us all they try to get the most possible $ regardless of anything.
ok, so besides that, the rooms were nice with upscale furniture and fixtures. good views and enough outlets.
The downside in the room was that in the bathroom, there was a LOT of mold on the caulking in the back of the sink as well as all along the floor of the inside and outside of the shower. That is like going to a 5 star restaurant and finding a stinky, dirty bathroom with no paper towels!
The views around the Hotel were very nice and there are some short walking paths that are romantic as well.
Perhaps the biggest negative is the poor facilities. No outside pool - under construction. The indoor pool was a freezing 24 degrees C. That is pretty much impossible for most humans to withstand unless they want to become a Navy Seal! Or perhaps a Polar Bear! I didn't see any sauna, steam room or Jacuzzi as well.
The gym was equally disappointing. The equipment was very sparse and many of the machines didn't work or didn't function properly. Squeaking or otherwise. It's like they just bought some used equipment in an auction and threw it into a room.
Perhaps if I had been charged 400 or 500 per night, I'd accept these deficiencies a little easier, but when paying 1,600 rmb per night, one expects 5 star quality.
Lastly, the breakfast buffet was very nice. The variety was excellent and the food was not too greasy. 5 star all the way with breakfast! I have to give credit to that.
