Days Hotel & Suites Hillsun (Chongqing, China)

3 Case Rating


Location

Hotel is located about 5 min walk or a few minutes by car from Chongqing airport- it’s right opposite the hotel. The hotel is in a busy area, right next to hotel is a star bucks but also a large mall in which includes the likes of Walmart and Burger King plus many Chinese restaurants. About 5 minutes walk away is the stunning Bijan park , a lake with a traditional Chinese tower that you can go up, boats you can hire and a museum. A walk around takes about 40 minutes. Plenty of banks, shops and some massage places and pharmacies so location is fairly good if you want to avoid down town area. Which I am told is about 45 min – 1 hour drive away.

Room

The room on the 9th floor (only floor that is non-smoking) was of good size, very grand typical Chinese luxury decor such as gold fabric headboard and flower imprinted carpet. The room offered a large and very comfortable double bed, not a king but sufficient for a couple. Either side are bed side tables offering lamps that had a dimmer switch plus above ceiling lights for each side – good for reading. A classical clock is offered and telephone with pad.
Facing the bed is a wide screen TV that offers 60 channels of which looking at guide 8 are non- Chinese. However BBC did not work and discovery / HBO kept freezing, so basically don’t rely on TV if your not Chinese. Below the TV is a cabinet that offers the free mini bar – a few beers, soft drinks like 7up and Pepsi & water. In the corridor leading to room is another cabinet that offers beef jerky , potato chip, nuts and cards with a chargeable list, so whilst they promote a free mini bar, they are only referring to drinks. Above these snacks is a kettle with days hotel tea bags and Nescafé coffee sachets. Some digital luggage scales are also offered to the side.
The wardrobe is right by the door and includes sufficient amount of coat hangers, robes , ironing board and slippers. A decent sized laptop size safe is offered, plus a shoe polishing service.
Back in the main bedroom a glass top working desk is offered with a comfortable leather chair. International socket and LAN cable plus a lamp and phone. Decent space to work from.
The room also offers a small sofa and glass table with a plant. Very large windows offering good natural light but not double glazed so you can hear some of airport noise but not significantly.
The bathroom is of adequate size for one person offering both a bath tub (with TV at front – that didn’t work) shower cubicle. This has option of automatic venetian blinds to main room.
There is a Japanese wash let toilet – all well automated with a handy telephone next to it.
Full drawer of amenities plus mini bottle of body lotion, bath foam, shampoo & conditioner – days hotel branded. Overall clean with marble design.
Whilst the room is a clean, comfortable and functional product. The weakness I found is the digital AC. It’s hard to use, I found the room cold when on even when upping the temperature (which didn’t seem to work well) or hot when off (was here in September). The annoying thing is it is quite noisy that and the non double glazing will make some difficulty for light sleepers.

Facilities

The hotels offers free unsecure wifi hotel wide for multiple devices. VPN worked fine if say you need to use gmail or Facebook.
There is a business centre with a few computers that is staffed. The Windows computers didn’t work when I attempted to use them.
The hotel does
Leisure facilities include a gym , adequate equipment, a medium sized indoor pool that you must wear a shower cap- never used it so cannot comment on water.
There is also a night club called Mirage- but never visited it.
There is also a SPA but was closed when I was there due to Chinese holiday.
Pool table is offered near the leisure facilities.
Catering facilities include a buffet where breakfast is held. It’s ok in terms of selection but quality of food was disappointing.
There is also a piano bar that offers drink and food – both western & Chinese plus 24 hours room service. Used this twice, wood oven pizza tastes like the microwaveable kind you find in the west. Burger was ok but staff don’t speak much English so can be a challenge explaining that you don’t want say onions. Next door to hotel is Starbucks.
Parking is also offered on lower levels.

Staff

Staff are as usual in premium hotels main land China really don’t speak English very well. Only one could at reception. However they do make an effort overall and are not rude.

Overall the room was comfortable it just has a poor level of maintenance with TV’s plus AC was an issue. Also if your a light sleeper bring ear plugs.

The Verdict Is...

Premium Days hotel close to airport with comfortable bed but dysfunctional TVs & AC. Not completely sound proof.
