We stayed here for one night on September 14, 2017.
This hotel was located in the ancient city streets of Fenghuang County. You can see in the photos how ancient-looking it really was.
As such, the hotel lobby was dim and looked old.
We were on the third floor in room 3335. It opened electronically with the room key. The room was a very good size, had two double beds, flat screen TV, two armchairs and a desk, hot water kettle, glass water jug. The stand-in shower had shower gel and shampoo from containers attached to the wall. There was no soap. There was only one roll of toilet paper which we ran out of but luckily still had an extra roll from the previous hotel to use.
The entire room felt very old and grimy. I didn’t trust the water kettle to drink hot water from.
There was wifi here but a very weak connection especially during the prime time of just before people sleep and in the morning when people woke up. I could barely even send an e-mail.
After dinner that night, we checked out the little store on the ground floor of the hotel. They had so many tourist-friendly items there for sale including toiletries, snacks, water, personal hygiene items and more.
The next day at 6 a.m., we checked out and ate breakfast at the same restaurant that we had had dinner at the night of checking in. There was also a noodle bar station here. This time, the noodles were rice noodles.
The buffet selection was limited and very similar to the hotel we were in before. There was fried rice, noodles, two types of congee, soup, corn, veggies, watermelon, mantos, cake, boiled eggs. In fact, boiled eggs were the only protein there. Everything was either carbs or veggies.
It was decent. I filled up on rice and congee mostly. 🙂
