Occupying the former Chinese YMCA building (1931) just south of People’s Square, this member of the Metropolo chain is one of the city’s better midrange hotels. The brown-and-cream rooms offer a reassuring degree of style, and are large and comparable in standard to pricier business hotels. Staff are professional and online discounts can slash room rates by 20%.
The building resembles Běijīng's Southeast Corner Watchtower, with a traditional hammerbeam ceiling. Its lobby has lavish art deco features.
