This is an old establishment, perhaps have been around for more than 30 years.
This is a late posting from stay during August, 2018.
Booked the hotel via Ctrip, I was on a short visit and booked the least expensive category. While the ground level reception desk probably did not change for the longest time, the guest floor and rooms was very well refurbished, and a very smart way of maximize the limited space in the rooms. Everything was working well in the room, and there's even some complimentary soft drinks in the minibar in the room.
I would love to come back to this hotel, especially its well positioned location right next to the subway station (Nanjing Fuxing station, 南京复兴,) and there's even a direct entrance that bring you to the bakery shop entrance on the ground floor.
Service staff was courteous and this hotel is truly value for money. The beef noodle soup at the hotel's coffee shop was very good as well. While there are many shopping and eateries of the hotel, the coffee shop is very popular amongst locals too, so as their Dim Sum lunch at their Chinese restaurant.
Will come back for sure.
Brother Hotel does not lack of eateries because of its location. In my opinion, it is better than staying near Taipei main station or Xi men ding area which can be too crowded and noisy. A small scale night market is within walking distant (Liaoning night market). The room is provided with daily newspaper and free soft drinks, mineral water. Hairdryer and basic toiletries are also provided. There should be a sign to tell customer that the coffee cups are kept at the cabinet above the kettle. I have a hard time looking for it. There is VOD channels in the room and no DIY laundry services. Iron is provided upon request. Sound of train passing by can be heard and can be quite annoying at night. Although the bed and pillows are comfortable, the bed tends to roll! There should be something to lock the rollers below the bed to prevent it from rolling. Check in and out was fast and simple. The housekeeping team is good.
Hotel is centrally-located in close proximity to major subway stations for connections throughout the city. This is an older hotel, but well-maintained with expected amenities including room safe. A number of restaurants on-site including an excellent Chinese restaurant serving Cantonese-style dim sum dishes!
When I arrived, I was amazed at how incredibly crowded the lobby was. There is a bakery, and then there were people waiting to check in, people waiting sitting down, and people waiting standing up.
Check in was prompt and the room I had was comfortable. The aircon was noisy even in eco mode.
The amenities are pretty standard. This is a tourist class hotel.
The major plus is that it is situated at two subway lines.
This is a somewhat older property but make no mistake it’s well maintained.
The location is fantastic- steps away from Nanjing Fuxing MRT. Also just a couple of stops away to Raohe st night market.....Several street vendors in the alleys around especially in the morning. In the evenings right next to the alley by Watson’s there is a pork bun vendor- do not miss!!! There is also a bakery in the lobby-was very popular with the locals. The lobby restaurant is open late till 3 am too .....
I had the standard room, quite small-the view sucked but given the convenient location, how well maintained it is and of course the price-this is an excellent choice.
