I decided to stay a night at Best Western Premier Fortune after having trouble at Hilton Garden that day. Despite an immediate booking closer to the mid-night, this hotel kindly accommodated me while a receptionist worked on finding my last-minute reservation patiently. She spoke excellent English to check me in and later called me to confirm my booking. Really thankful that part.
The room I stated was tiny but it was very clean and comfy enough to stay just a night and even longer days if you wish so. Bathroom amenities were fully available from comb to toothbrush as well as shampoo and conditioner. It is also very clean.
As I always hate smoking smell in room, finding a fully non-smoking room in China yields some difficulty. I just had had a problem of smoking smell in international Hilton Garden Inn Fuzhou, and I was afraid of getting the same issue at this property. However, this property nicely offered a non-smoking room. That was very helpful.
Breakfast venue is located on the upper floor. Selections were quite diverse so foreign travelers would not have any trouble having breakfast there. Food quality was not bad at all.
Location-wise, it is mixed. As I hailed a cab to the hotel, I arrived in another Best Western hotel about 10 min walk away. So I had to walk to get to this property by foot in the middle of the night. However, the hotel was located within residential buildings. It turned out a bit difficult to find it.
Once I found the hotel, it turned out everything convenient from next morning. Most international fast-food restaurants were located on the Main Street ahead and some tourist attractions were also within walking distance, say about 30min to Chinese traditional alleys, Sun Fang Qi Xing, where a beautiful Starbucks store is settled down.
Overall, this property is highly recommended for foreign tourists both in business and fun. Just be sure to tell a taxi driver which Best Western you are staying.
