I do hope this is not "paradise' - our small room faced an internal courtyard and yes it did smell of smoke - it also seemed to have no access to fresh air. The room also had a clear glass cube as the bathroom, but did have a blind.
The breakfasts were ordinary with staff who really did not want to be there, who yawned and seemed 'bored' by non Asian tourists.
Lunch was an entirely different matter - lovely freshly cooked food an enormous display of the entire menu all set on a vast table that you walked around with a waiter at hand to explain (although the labels were in English) and to take your order and a good atmosphere with lots of people who just came to lunch there.
The business centre was staffed by nice helpful people. The location of this hotel was very handy.
The biggest gripe is the deposit at the desk, all China hotels seem to do this, no problem, but this one actually takes the money out of your account and then at the end of you stay buts it back and charges the full amount again thus making 3 transaction charges on our account - I tried to explain this but the woman at the counter could not understand - even when I showed her on the computer - she said that it was alright at there end so it must be our bank. So do not try to use a debit card at this hotel.
