Awesome high end hotel in convenient place next to train. Only negative is that I’ve stayed here twice now and the showers in both rooms have been hot and cold. Quite annoying.

My room radiator wasn’t really warm, but my parents’ room was alright. No complaints about other things. Location was great, just a walk away from Nanjing East station and the shopping belt.

Overrated. Now the property is old. Location is good. Travel tours dump their tourists to this hotel!! A sign the hotel is no longer 4 star caliber... let alone 5 stars. Chinese b*tches that work the front desk have bad attitude
