Stuck here for a couple of days to attend a large group business meeting. A very GRAND hotel out of nowhere so it's perfect for the purpose...
The service was pretty good but the food was VERY bad -- however, I suspect it was due to cost-down of the meeting I attended but not entirely hotel's fault; the breakfast buffet as pretty on the other hand.
The room was old and and maintained well; however, the public area are not all that great. For example, the hall way to the swimming pool area had no AC (probably to save $$) and the spa area was dried and dirty (probably lacking of guest).
Interesting place; it was built to be grand but unfortunately with China economic soft-landing, the hotel probably won't last long...
The hotel is a resort located in a hot spring area with very grand looking from outside and inside. First class decoration with very fine decoration make you feel you are walking into a 6 stars hotel. Swimming pool and spa, out door activities are all available.
My previous visits (3 times) cost me about RMB 700-800 per night but my recent visit just cost RMB 400.
Occupancy rate is going down and the hotel has to reduce the room rate and to reduce a number of staff to maintain its operation, it is sad to see such a nice place not able to fill with guests. Having all these problem, the hotel is able to keep the room clean with a reasonable good breakfast and good service provided.
Stayed one night in an almost completely empty massive hotel. It looks like a palace from a distance but up close it's got a creepy deel to is. Airconditioning does not work, so it's 25 degrees in the room all the time. Wifi works ok. Requested a non smoking room, they confirmed and gave me a smoking room... since the lobby is an almost 5min walk from the room it was quite a hassle. I would say ok for one night, but not more. Not sure this is up to Hyatt standards though.
