I am at the Golden Ocea. Though I try not to be a complainer, I know how important it is to inform other families travelling here. So here goes---as you know my unternet did not work in the 1st room. The bathroom is great and has a large shower and nice tub. It has a drinking water spicket--however mine does not work. My bathroom plug does not work--at least not for my straightener. I know I am using the right plug, because I had already checked it in the 1st room and it worked. So to straighten my hair I have go to the "foyer" mirror, comb a section of hair, go around the corner to tv wall, and use my straightener there, repeat about 10x......and the foyer light does not work, so I am doing this in dim light. My computer plug that worked in the 1st room, does not work here, but they brought me a plug strip that works. Soooo--if you come here and have any special plug needs, medical equipment, or things that are a must--check to make sure the appropriate plugs work before you unpack.
The safe is not attached to anything---so just walk away with it! The beds are hard as usual in Ch8na, but not painfully hard. The curtains look nice, but are dryrotted, I heard a little rip when I pulled them closed (don't tell anyone).
The breakfast is nice enough, but fewer American options than any place we've stayed (8 China hotels so far). There is toast, a few pastry, yogurt, about 7 fresh fruit---of course I cannot risk eating them, but they have had canned peaches. Lots of Chinese options --fried rice is the only one I personally will eat. There is an egg/omelet chef that cooks to order. Lukewarm milk and several juices to drink, and a few dry cereals to choose from.
Staff is trying to be very nice, but I've only found 1 girl that can really understand me. She had to be found when I was wanting a taxi to the Ancient Architectual Street.
Nothing worth putting up a fuss over (except the internet), I've stayed nicer places, I ve stayed worse places -----just though inquiring minds would want to know.
