The hotel has a very 1980's feel to it. The room looks as if it was refurbished in the original style. The bed is typical China-hard, but it was clean and everything worked.
The staff were pleasant and helpful and spoke some English.
The hotel seems to be a place where local conferences/conventions are held, and there were quite a few non-city people attending (you could tell by the way they stood in front of the no-smoking signs while they smoked!
The location is excellent, just outside the Old City Wall which was visible through the lovely trees in the courtyard. The Subway entrance is just a five minute walk from the door
