Orange Hotel (Dashiba)

Hotel in Nanjing

In a great riverside location within walking distance to the Fūzǐ Temple area, this branch of the very popular chain has modern rooms, with good bedding and lighting and every gizmo and gadget your computer, tablet or mobile phone might ever need. It’s worth paying a few more bucks for the rooms with river-facing balconies. Other pluses include complimentary fruit and free use of the hotel’s bikes.

The disadvantage is that the hotel can get busy, due to its very central location. There are several branches in town, including another handy branch right next to the old gate of Donghuamen in the east of town.
