This is a Trusted Review. Why?
The location was fantastic, however they wouldn't recognize the deposit we paid. I would suggest you don't pay any deposit. Staff were unhelpful and unfriendly. Would have been the worst place we stayed in China except for the location.
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
We chose this hotel off recommended hotel agency websites. We were 'led' to believe the rooms were the pictures on all websites and that breakfast was included. We paid $238 Yuan per night.
Once we arrived to check in the staff were unorganised, stuffy up the paperwork several times, gave us a room key and weren't as friendly as most. ENglish was average.
We got to our room and opened the door. The most foul water smell filled the room from the bathroom (as if toilet was blocked or shower). The room was tiny and nothing like the room we picked online.
I went down to ask for another, to be shown 5 more rooms of all the same similarities. We were disgusted in the rooms lack of quality. We asked for a refund to find somewhere else to stay for the 4 nights. The man rang his supervisor and said we could have the 'business' room upgrade.
This was almost as bad but it smelt better then the rest.
We DON'T recommend this hotel to anyone. We have been informed that breakfast is NOT included and that it was a website error. When i decided to check, it was twice stated on our confirmation slip. Also when searched the Shijian Inn on other websites, Breakfast is also included on all other websites.
We are extremely upset and highly annoyed at the false pictures, organisation, smell of toilets, 'breakfast inclusion' but the location is the only best bit about it!
