“Terrible and over-rated”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

Other than the convenience of inside the medical science campus of Peking University, this motel is not worth staying! The room is small and dim. The "mattress" is like a box spring with no cushion. My wife and I had terrible back pain sleeping on it over-night. When complaining about it, they only offer an extra blanket to put over the bed. The bathroom has half of the sliding door missing. Even if you are extra careful of not letting water splashing out of the shower, water leaks out of the shower from underneath the sliding door because poor sealing of the frame of the sliding door. Moreover, the room has the smell of sewage all the time, probably because of improper installation of the drain pipes. Last but not the least, people smoke inside the elevator and other non-smoking areas of the motel I would not recommend anyone staying in this motel even for just one night. There is a much better hotel with cheaper price just outside the west gate of the campus.

Room Tip: Find a hotel right outside the medical campus of Peking University.

If you are working at Peking University Medical Science Campus or the Third Hospital, the location of this hotel just cannot be beat. It is also very secure with the campus chained up overnight (however, this can pose a problem with a very early or late arrival to the hotel with luggage). Usually, you would need to walk to the main campus gate to get a taxi. The facilities themselves are pretty average. Everything is clean, the a/c works, etc. Think somewhat nicer dorm room. There is a hairdryer and a refrigerator. The water and packaged washcloth kit are not complimentary. The bed is very hard as are most Chinese hotel beds. There is an Ethernet connection in the room, but no wireless. There is wireless in the hotel lobby and breakfast room. The breakfast is Chinese with lots of steamed dough, soup, rice, noodles, and some boiled eggs. There is toast and some small pastries as well as tea and coffee. The staff are pleasant, but speak very little English. There was a problem with my bill and I eventually had to ask one of my Chinese colleagues to assist as neither I nor the staff could understand each other. Overall, it was very adequate for my needs, but I wouldn't choose to stay there if I didn't have business to conduct on campus.

I stayed here 2 nights with my husband who had a conference at a nearby university. The room was extremely disappointing. The lobby looks nice, but as many Chinese hotels, the lobby looks nice and do not mirror the room, necessarily. On arrival they were still cleaning the room. The room was very small with an extremely stained carpet. The bathroom was super tiny and extremely moldy. The wooden details were rotten and even broken at some places, which made me think off roaches. However, we did not see one single bug during our stay. The air con worked all fine.

A few persons among the staff spoke some few words in English. Their service attitude was OK, not bad, but not good either. It was my impression they were not willing to serve foreigners.

We had breakfast for 30 yuan one morning at the hotel: plenty of food, but the quality was not good enough for the price. There are many nearby eateries you can visit instead.

The hotel is situated in the north west part of Beijing, so do not stay here for sightseeing. It is close to the Summer Palace, though. It takes about one hour to go to central Beijing by cab, for about 100 yuan. There is a nearby metro station that you can use, just 400 meters south of the hotel.

All in all, I can not recommend this hotel: It was scruffy and the room was not nice at all. The bed was rock hard, but the bed linen clean and fresh.

Also, realize that you get what you pay for: One night for 2 persons was about 150 yuan...

The Master Inn sells itself as international business hotel - yet few members of staff speak any English, making it hard to understand this description.
The hotel rooms are small and basic, and unfortunately my room was not at all clean on arrival. The hotel staff were very understanding and moved me to another room - this was not much better, but was then cleaned for me.
In terms of location, the hotel is to the northwest of the city, which was quite handy for my purposes, but not so good if you wish to spend a lot of time in the city centre. The hotel is tucked off the main road, with a not very well light approach for returning late at night (you have to walk from the main road) and it did not seem possible for the hotel to call me a taxi. This was not too much of a problem as it was almost always possible to flag one near by, however when you are checking out with luggage, you do not expect to have to trundle 100m or so a road to find transport.
