... which was next to the park with trees and grass, so we all collapsed under a tree and chilled – whilst trying to avoid the ants! I don’t think any of us were bitten though… after a bit we went to find a drink, and then got a taxi back to the apartment for a sleep. That evening we went to Jane’s Bar for a drink, whilst the football was on. It was such an English day – apart from the fact that it was about 35°C ...

How has this hotel rated in the past?
being in a tour group meant arriving after dark and with no time to explore surrounding area.. seems to be rather isolated, a vehicle would be required ..there is a small shopping centre adjacent to the hotel with small dept store ,KFC etc
The lobby, bar and buffet restaurant are well appointed. Bedroom/ bathroom spacious , luxurious.. soft beds & pillows heavenly
The breakfast buffet was very good with a large selection of both Chinese and Western dishes.
The night lights of surrounding area excellant but do go out at 9pm.
Throughly enjoyed this hotel.
