The Castle (Yíbăo jiüdiàn) Review
Sharing the same historic gardens as the German Governer's Residence, this lovely boutique hotel belies its mock-Bavarian exterior with artsy (sometimes over-designed) guest rooms. All boast huge beds, flat-screen TVs, and pretty views over the Old City. The service is unfailingly friendly; ask the reception staff for a walking map of the local area or discounted tickets to the neaarby sights. A well-equipped children's play area keeps the little ones distracted. Confusingly, it's also called the Clearsea Arts Hotel.
