The hotel is brand new, opened Feb. 2014. My room was spacious, with both bathtub and shower.
Beautiful area of different type of swimming pools. Had a dolphin pool too, except contained no dolphins, just giant turtles. According to staff, dolphins will arrive before July 1, 2014. Fitness facility was barely ok, with running and bike machines, but not enough weight machines.
Front desk and 50% of staff speak adequate English Nothing is near hotel, so you must eat in hotel's restaurants, which are expensive for China. Breakfast buffet, which was tasty, cost 159 yuan. (6.2 yuan = US$1.)
Taxi from Lotus Bridge immigration should cost 18 yuan. Drivers try to get you to pay lots more. Need hotel's Chinese characters for drivers to understand.
This hotel is a hidden treasure, much cheaper than comparable hotels in the area. Lobby lounge has good range of beers / spirits, western food. Other asian restaurants in house all well priced. Nice roof top bar on the 9th floor. Rooms are comfortable but typical Chinese rock hard bed. good size bathrooms but a little mould in the shower. Opposite is Starbucks and a food court, hard to find its on the right over the road on the corner basement level.
5 minute trip to bar street, outdoor BBQ street and don't forget Coneelys Irish bar, friendly Irish host cheap food and a wide assortment of beers / wines . 10 minutes to ferry, Macao border crossing and train / bus stations
Nice rooms that are clean and well maintained staff are very friendly and English is not a problem.
Buffet breakfast is OK however when a buffet item runs out it is not replenished so be early, coffee is good . Not a lot of entertainment or restaurants nearby be prepared to travel about 5 - 10 minutes in a taxi
Close to a great Irish bar Coneelys good value full of ex pats however food is a little below par
Bar street is just a close
This hotel is the best one in Zhuhai for English speaking people. The staff are professional and exceptionally helpful; they follow up all requests immediately. The Chinese/Western buffet breakfast is top quality and a great way to start the day. Standard room size is over-generous. Most budget hotels in Zhuhai do not have any English speakers, words or menus. Even if this hotel's rates are more than your budget - go the extra $s - it i9s worth it.
*For these trips, trip savings is at least equal to the cost of the flight or hotel if booked separately. Note: For trips including flights, you will be charged by the airline for the flight, but your savings on the trip will equal the cost of the flight.
