Kunlun Business Hotel
DO NOT GO HERE!!! Find somewhere else, I beg of you. The address is #793, Dushan Street, Wencheng District, Nanyang, and it sucks pretty badly. 3*** hotel in the middle of Nanyang, so location and price wise, it was a good deal. However, the place was so filthy many refused to eat there. Even the bus driver and tour guide chose to eat at a nearby outdoor restaurant instead, and they were up for eating just about anything. Sheets were filthy. Rooms were disgusting. No hot water. Drunks and screaming children running about. Just not a good place :(
