Airport Hotel: "Airport Hotel" Top 5 Page for this destination Zhangjiajie Hotel Tip by mke1963

Zhangjiajie Hotels: 8 reviews and 12 photos

The Airport Hotel is not at the airport, but downtown. The name comes from the fact that it is owned by the Civil Aviation Authority. Hmmm. Good thing it's not owned by the Municipal Sewage Plant then, eh?

This 4 star hotel (actually this is an unofficial rating) is very modern, but is already showing its age, with fittings and furnishings taking on that grubby, finger-smeared, chipped, warped, scuffed look that Chinese 4 star hotels do so well and so quickly.

The rooms are small - very small - and have bizarre numbering, where every room ends in 8, making it difficult to find your room in the dark corridors.

Unique Qualities: The Western restaurant is no more, and despite the view over the litter-strewn banks of the Li river, the hotel prefers to use the pokey downstairs restaurant for the Chinese restaurant. There is no menu here; they just cater for the coachloads of people on the way to and from the mountains (so plenty of high-heeled shoes and loafers... de rigeur mountaineering gear for today's coachloads).
