We stayed for 2 nights in what was booked as a standard room, but we thought it was a pretty high 'standard' - more like deluxe or better. the hotel is on the huge man-made Jin Ming Lake & our room & balcony overlooked this and the hotel's swimming pools. A picture window separated the bedoom & bathroom, which had a big bath, separate shower area and a separate loo. A cute pot-pourie doll was hanging on the bathrobes. Free daily paper (Mandarin version on our first night), turndown service & tomorrow's weather forecast - all delivered with a friendly smile but no English, which was limited throughout the hotel.
The restaurant overlooks the lake and swimming pools and private areas are available in the warmer seasons. There was plenty of choice at the buffet breakfast and even though the emphasis was on Chinese dishes we found plenty to please us. The lobby bar only seemed to serve cakes and coffee, and light meals/snacks and wine were scarce in the restaurant, but this may have been due to our lack of communication skills. It was certainly not because of the wonderful, friendly service of the staff who really wanted to please the only Westerners in the hotel. We were very happy with this classy hotel.

... a tracksuit, as most do at that hour of the morning (before 9am, streets are filled with people out on their daily walk, tai chi/kung fu/line dancing session), and carrying a radio in his pocket which was screeching out some lively Chinese tune. He was moving down the street with a lively walk – kind of a ‘bop’ in his step, his arms all floppy. He said something to Darren in Chinese. Darren laughed awkwardly and shrugged but the old guy persisted. Darren took ...
... of China once again. I certainly got that in Kaifeng!
It started soon after arriving actually. My train got in just after 6am and as I exited the train station and started walking the streets in the darkness before dawn in search of my hotel, I found myself amongst crowds of students pedalling, walking and running to work. It's a slightly disconcerting to realise that without these students, the streets would be almost deserted. Chinese students study a ...
Today was my first day to go to Henan. The plane took off at about 12:40. It was a good experience for me, at first I thought it would be quite painful for my ears although it was the second time I took the plane. It was a good trip for me. After we get off the plane, we headed to another city in Henan, Kaifeng. We had gone to a square, which was copy from the model of Sung dynasty, it was a big ...
... of China soon succumbed to constant flooding from the nearby Huang He(River) and invaders from the north. However, Kaifeng still preserves much of this ancient glory in many of its sites and the tiny, birck alleys that weave in and out of modern contruction projects. A dusty dirt road that stings the eyes AND nostrils will often lead right into a black top, six lane intersection with a ...
... and say hello to you on the picturesque mountainside, wanting pictures, conversations, friendship. The tourists' friendliness combined with the vertical mountain exploring finally leaves you exhausted, tired and hurting. Cramped bus rides in reverse full of more smiles, awkward sitting positions and Chinese tourists. Gratitude washes over you as you finally shut the door to your apartment and collapse on your bed. For the first time, Kaifeng feels ...
