The location in the absolute centre of the Old Town of Quanzhou is excellent. Adjacent/very close to Baiyuan Pool park (百源清池), Confucius Temple (府文庙) with puppet theatre next door (府文庙夫子泉茶馆), Tumen Street (涂门街) with its lively Guandi-temple (通淮关岳庙) and less lively but ancient mosque (清淨寺), Houcheng historical lane (后城街; don't miss the teahouse located in a beautiful old courtyard at No 122: 古厝茶坊), Zhongshan Rd (中山路) arcaded shopping street, Chengtian temple (承天寺), and of course old West Street (Xi Jie; 西街) with the huge Kaiyuan temple (开元寺) and Twin Pagodas.
Good value for money even if the rooms are getting somewhat old. But you also get what you expect - a good ol' standard room layout with standard amenities. No fancy glass wall toilets here! Clean and adequately maintained rooms, and efficient service. No luxury however.
Since the overwhelming majority of foreigners visiting QZ are actually Overseas Chinese, it helps if you speak a little Chinese in the hotel and around town.
Pay a few yuan extra to stay in a room on the top floors. Slightly better quality and much better views.
So-so breakfast but ok. Excellent restaurant if you want to arrange a huge party, less so if you are alone or just a couple of people.More
