As an alleged five-star hotel, The bed linens and ropes are OK for comfort. The size of the room is also decent. They have BBC, French channels.
The breakfast is poor: small restaurant, lack of choices, too many people and the quality of food is far from anything five-star. I came back to my table with food only to find all other 3 chairs I wasn't using intact but the one I was sitting on just somehow vanished, gone. And the fork and knife and plates were still resting on the table. Haunting! I looked around and saw probably my chair being seated by a mid-age women in the alley, who was enjoying her food and chatting with her friends. The room was a smoking one. Hate smoky air. The View: window opens to the roofs of shabby building and the cramped city skyline in polluted smog. The design of the room is rather strange. The cleanliness could have been much improved on the carpet, the surface of the sofa, etc. to live up with the five star rating. The cheap pack of for-sale toiletries, bottled water of a new local brand, and box of Chinese tea should be removed to upgrade the taste. The TV is small, not high resolution, and cannot adjust in any direction, not to mention using your USB for your own movie. The tea bag and nestle instant coffee reminds me of a basic 3-star facility. Guests had better go through the full price list of every single item in the room, from bed head board to tea spoon. The completeness of the items you can or cannot see really frightens you to death of damaging the cheap setting. The location: the hotel hides itself in a crowded and dirty residential complex. Reaching there at night is a challenge of GPS. The check-in staff was a cold poker face. He set me aside waiting and dealt with some other guest behind me while being unclear of my booking, no explanation nor guilty feeling. Actually, on the twentieth something Floor, it shows it belongs to some service apartment company. Where am I? A real five star hotel or an average service apartment I find easily find at half the price on the Internet?
