Then a long wait in freezing cold Wuwei station, saved by a lovely old lady who filled up several water bottles with boiling water and gave them to me as a big hottie- much needed on some very chilly metal seats. Then my train to Beijing at 3:45, which was a standing ticket for well on 16 hours. There was a patch on the floor about the size of my feet and directly in the corridor. I slept in an upright foetal position ...

Pat asked for the time to be earlier because, "Sam and I like to get there early in case there is any problem and we can relax and read instead of being rushed."

How has this hotel rated in the past?
This place is alright I guess. I've stayed here twice now only because the company I work for, Teach and Travel China (TTC) paid for it. I would not stay here if I had to pay for it.
