We chose to stay at tower 1 as many of the comments have been recommending. We arrived close to midnight, front office is very rude along whole process of checkin. Fine. When we get into the room, size is okay but the room is so worn out, stinks and scratches everywhere. Towel in bathroom looks like they are just being...

We had four nights at the Rayfont and it was a very busy Hotel, the subway was about 200 metres away and was a cheap and easy way to get around this very busy city, we were on the 32nd floor and had no trouble with getting a lift. We used the metro system for getting around all the stations...

This hotel is just a transit hotel for the airport. Room was clean, but that is all I can say about it. Sink was cracked, tiles in shower broken, air conditioning useless. Reception staff could speak little or no English, could not exchange currency only via a machine. Concierge very unhelpful in trying to book tours or even provide information...

Nice Hotel but rooms extremely small. Location is convenient. Metro station at 3 minutes walking. Quite convenient! Staff was not able to speak english. Was told that checkout was at 10 am! No restaurants near by!

No amenities, uncomfortable beds, little English spoken. There are non working refrigerators in the rooms - and they won'y replace them. Sinks are cracked, shower doors don't keep water out of bathroom. Safe in room did not work. Thermostat blasts heat only, regardless of setting.

The room you can see in the images is the room we got after check in. This didn't happen only to was. There where 3 other rooms like this, in our group, with condoms on the floor, a huge mess. We changed the room. Only the bed sheets seemed changed. In the bathroom there was hair in the sink, marks...

I had no problems during my stay. Quick check in and quick check out. 200 RMB deposit needed. I stayed on the 32nd floor. Great views and very quiet. Big bed and good shower. Wifi so so. Cleaned each day. Basic facilities you'd expect in any hotel. Staff helpful. I was impressed and happy with my choice. Location. Jishan Road...

Rooms are quite nice and comfortable to stay for longer time, usually they offer washing machine to wash clothes but now it was not available for a no-reason. Nearby there is a metro station which makes the location quite nice.
