Lai Lai Sheraton

The Lai Lai Sheraton was undergoing a major renovation and the left wing (with the atrium) is undergoing this renovation in the moment, while the right wing is followed later on. So the lobby is in the moment somewhat small and temporarily right hand side.

To reach the Executive Club and the Gym on the 17
floor, one had to go first to the 5 floor and went to the opposite side of the hotel and change elevators to reach the 17 floor.

The Gym is well equipped, not modern, but usable without problems. I used it in the evening, for an hour and it was not very crowed. The gym is open 6.00 am to 9.00 pm.

The pool was closed up to the morning of the 13
th April; I visited it Tuesday morning at 6.30 a.m., but the water was cold and I just had some lanes and returned to my room. The pool is open 6.00 a.m. to 8.00 p.m. (?).

Buffet Breakfast was served in the Executive Club every day in the time 7.00 am – 10.00 a.m..

I get a room to the front side on the SPG floor in the 15 floor, which was big; it seems to me, they upgrade me to a bigger room than booked. Although a little bit worn out, it was very comfortable; only the bed was hard. There was an internet connection, which I could not use because my equipment (Psion) does not fit. The fruit basket was refilled every day, but I only get complimentary water in the first two days.

In the moment, due to the renovation, one could not see satellite channels like CNN or DWTV and get only Chinese News Channels and an English Speaking Sport Channel, but one could hear the tone of CNN on the radio, which is little bit funny.

As I entered the room for the first time and looked outside, I saw the big illuminated Sheraton Sing just in front of my window. But it was turned off every day at 11 pm and the curtain was very dark, so this was not a problem.

I get a copy of the China Post – a Taiwanese English Newspaper – every morning at 6.45 a.m..

The bathroom with bath was normal, the amenities were refilled every day.

Nevertheless I enjoyed my stay in the Sheraton, as the hotel is located near the main station and only 50 meters to an MRT station (Shandao Temple Station).
