If you go to Yiwu for the Market and want nothing more, this is the place to be!

I come back every year! It is the most convenient place to stay if you wish to spend time at Futian Market. Nestled in District 2, it is walking distance from anywhere at Futian Market. (A little tip if you wish to get to District 5, you can get to it quicker by leaving the market to the South and walking outside across the main road - only takes 15-20mins compared to the hour if you walked inside the building)
Only draw back is there is not much to do or eat immediately near by; you would need to walk across the main road to the North to find any restaurants or convenience stores. There is a bus service which takes you into the shopping district but I failed to find out how to get back (not a big deal as a Taxi back was not too expensive).
Has all the right amenities you would want from a hotel for work - good wired internet in the room, brilliant work location, friendly staff, reasonably priced restaurants and a decent gym.
Things which can be improved upon: patchy wifi in rooms sometimes (but lobby and dinning areas worked fine), though the breakfast buffet was good, after the the 3rd or 4th day it got a bit boring having the same things! Would be nice to have more English speaking channels (only has CCTV-9, CNN and HBO).
Always a pleasant stay and a reasonable mid-range price. Can really get your head down and work and the proximity to the Market is brilliant! less
