This hotel is also called the Gold Kangba hotel. It is located not in Kangding, but about 30 miles downriver in a dirty town called Guza. Verifiably, the hotel does not possess a vacuum cleaner. The carpets in our rooms were filthy and covered with burn marks from the many cigarette butts that previous guests stepped on to extinguish. The staff attempted to use a street broom to clean up. The bathroom was beyond description, and the toilet wiggled because it was held down by silicone instead of bolts. Although advertised as coming with a shower and hot water, what they don't tell you is that they turn the water off early in the morning, way before the time when a vacationer would get out of bed. If one complains loud enough, they will bring you two bowls filled with water, maybe two gallons in total and explain to you in sign language that this should be sufficient to freshen up. The promised internet works only for chinese web sites (dot cn), and the speed is slower than it used to be with a 9600baud modem having a bad day.
On the upside: they do have an elevator, and the food in the restaurant on the 2nd floor is quite good
