Barely two years old, the A-Live design Hotel is centrally located and a good alternative for travellers on a budget. The rooms are clean, and the décor is an interesting Chinese interpretation of a boutique hotel. A plus for those looking to party (or a bane for those not looking to)—the Windows Underground Club can be found in the same building.
Rates: From RMB299 for a room on special offer, to RMB1,999 for the A-Live Suite A
Draw factor: The low room rates and the Windows Underground Club
