This hotel is on the corner of the main road that heads away from the train station called Chaoyang Lu. As I was both arriving and leaving Nanning via the train, it made sense to spend the night here plus I had seen the rooms on the hotels website. I had a very large room with a big double-bed, TV, cupboard, desk/drawers, a/c, ceiling fan, coat stand, table with 2 chairs and the use of an internet PC that was in my room. The internet was a bit slow but how often do you get a PC in your room. The bathroom was fairly OK but it had one of the smallest WC's I've ever seen which came to being a bit of fun when trying to use it! The hotel was fine but had long corridors of rooms that made it have a sort of former hospital feel about it. The staff at reception were friendly and helpful and my room was RMB120.
For the backpackers - to get the best competitive price and convenience, this is the place to base yourself. There are lots of hotels of different range for you to choose. If you have the time, you can shop around. The hotels here are accessible to the main railway station and to the intercity buses stops. Lots of restaurants too. During the low season, most hotels will put up signboards on the reduced prices of the rooms. Check the room first before confirming your booking.
See pictures attached on the hotels and also the night views of hotels being lit up.
The hotel is big - strategically located in the city centre. It is infact very convenient especially for backpackers as it is situated directly opposite the main railway station. In front of the hotel is the bus stop where lots of intercity buses will stop. Along the same row with the hotel are lots of eateries - mostly local food. The hotel is currently going through some expansion and renovation - as such you will see some steel structures and scaffoldings in front of the hotel.
There are many types of rooms - ranging from 90yuan to 200yuan during peak and 40yuan to 138yuan during low season. We went there during the low as such we got a good bargain on the room (no breakfast included) - standard room for 2paxs with AC and attached bath for 65yuan per night
Room is AC and is quite big and with clean sheets. Bathroom is also clean. Shower is of hot and cold water.
* We were allowed to check in early, as early as 7am
* During raining day, they will allow you to have their nice umbrella for use the whole day (all you need to do is deposit the room keys with them)
