A guest review:
The hotel was pretty clean. It was economical . we got two rooms for seven days one double and one single for about $600.oo USD. 'I thought the beds were hard, my son who lives in South China, said they were not. The location was not so great looks wise, but we never had any trouble. I would not have picked this hotel based on outward looks and location. Kind of out of the way. However taxi rides were cheap if a little hair-raising.

A diner's review:
I had dinner here a couple of weeks ago with friends and absolutely loved the food. I didn't much like the atmosphere, maybe better for lunch. It's hard to find, on the second floor of an office/apartment building, so too quiet at night. Not many customers, so the whole place was very hushed and more like a church than a restaurant. It would be a great place to have a quiet meal by yourself, with a book.
