I think some of you, my friend here has experienced five star hotels, but have you used, or even heard "Five-Star Toilet"??? I just used once when I had a trip to Mount Huang a week ago. After a hard climbing, when I prepared to leave, I went to a toilet to solve my personal problem , and I suddenly found a metal sign, it wrote "Five star toilet" on it with five stars below. It's a pity I didn't take a photo. But after I came back home I searched internet, I found not only one stared toilet in China. The attached picture is an example, only the licence-issuing authority is different from the sign of Mount Huang. But, should the money be spend on "Five Star Toilet"s when lots of people are still destitute in the country?

I know five-star toilet from Chinese News on TV. And I don't think that it is a fun thing. Because many toilet's enviroment is not good in China,but government doesn't spend budget to improve it. On the contrary,they refer to build a so expensive toilet. And I wonder that you went to five-star toilet once,how much is it?

I have went to the Fragrant Hills in Beijing many years ago,and the toilet on the top of the mountain gave me great impressive,it's so clean and comfortable,but I have forgotten whether there was a Five-star on it.Being a toilet,clean is the most important.It's saddening to see our country spending so much money on face project and luxury engineerings.To maintain every toilet clean and comfortable especially in the rural country is more important than building the so called Five-star ones.

I know some people stay in five star hotels. I haven't ever heard of a five star toilet. I found a lovely baby diaper change room in Lithuania. I was amazed and I would say it was five star. In the developing countries in Asia I saw some terrible looking toilets. It is a shame for the country to spend money making a five star toilet in a country where many of the people are very poor. It was funny to see the worst toilet ever in Los Angeles when I was traveling in the USA. That wouldn't even be a one star toilet.

qianyu6 I have been in one five star hotel but never saw a five' star toilet. I am here in the US and in some service stations I have see 10 minus toilets, thats my own name, that were so gross I was half standing to do my business, I am a woman, but they were filthy. I agree China could do without expensive toilets when some people are still poor. Just so the toilet is really clean it does not have to be five star. One star thats clean would sure do if for me.
