We stayed in the Q-Stay at the end of December. The hotel is ideally located just a couple of minutes walk from Ximen underground train station where there are many large shops and eating places. The hotel is small with just two rooms on each floor. Our room, though one of their larger rooms, lacked storage space or places to store clothes. Surprisingly the bathroom was large - however, it was not heated so could be cold in the early December mornings - we just left the door open and it heated up quickly enough for us to have a shower comfortably. Each room has a PC that doubles as a TV.
There is a little cafe or pantry just off reception where guests can have tea, coffee, fruit juices, pastries, biscuits - if a little more peckish, the staff will gladly make you instant noodles and serve them in a bowl.
There are many 'local type' eating places near the hotel and these can be a gem - do try some of them for breakfast noodles! There are also many restaurants and convenience stores.
Perhaps the strongest aspect of this small hotel is its staff - they are very friendly and particularly helpful (especially Jen). This and its location are its strongest points. However, this is a basic hotel, so if you are looking for a little extra comfort, it would not be suitable.
