Reviews from Real Guests:

廖: pretty perfect!

LIPIN: In order to see the lake view room of the musical fountain, the scenery outside the window is quite good, basically you can see the entire musical fountain area. However, due to some minor problems with the air conditioning, the hotel has been upgraded to a children's theme room. Although the fountain cannot be seen in the room, the children's theme room is indeed more suitable for families with children. The room layout and children's supplies are very considerate, and the children are very happy. The attitude and efficiency of the hotel to solve problems are very good. The cute pet paradise on the third floor is recommended, because it faces Meixi Lake outdoors, the scenery is good, it is clean and there is no peculiar smell, and children can feed small animals. Downstairs in the shopping mall, there is no need to queue up.

Suddenly there was an old man in white who claimed to be Shajialong, and came forward to salute and said: "The teacher is the founder of the mountain, and I have been waiting for him for a long time." Kai, Zongzhi cut the grass and thorns, opened up the land and opened the mountain, and named the mountain as "Daowu" and built the Taowu Temple.
