Fodor's Review

Built in 1956, this concrete behemoth's Sino-Stalinist exterior hides a modern if drab interior. Pleasant service and clean, standard-size rooms make this hotel's main building a good value; the older east and west wings house shabbier but still acceptable rooms for half the price. Beds are hard. The hotel's Chinese restaurant, Zhong Hua Yuan, cooks up great local cuisine.
