“Very Decent, perfect for university visit”
Reviewed 31 January 2012

The hotel is very well situated next to the Peking university campus, the subway is a 15 min walk. The restaurants in the hotel and nearby are good, plenty of choice. For a tourist visit to Beijing the hotel is less suited, travel to the center and attractions can take 1 hour by public transport, taxis depend on the time of day between 30 min and 2 hours.
I would recommend this hotel if you nee dot be in this part of Bejing,
Make sure you have a room with a window outside not the indoor courtyard!

Room Tip: Get a room with a window ti the outside not the indoor courtyard!

I stayed at Xihua last summer for a summer programme at Beijing University. The hotel is very close to the university campus, but it's not close to the subway station. It takes about 15 minutes on foot to get there - not very convenient. Good however that there are a number of restaurants and a convenience store nearby, so at least you don't need to take a taxi to elsewhere for necessities at night.

My room had no windows (Economy Room, Type B). Ventilation can be a bit of an issue, especially when the air conditioner only worked from 10 am to 2 pm (!!) - very environmentally friendly but it's a pain on summer nights! The room was clear, however, and was generally satisfactory for a budget option. Recommended for those who need to go to Zhongguancun or BJ University frequently during their stay in BJ.

It was a complicated experience, the level of English in the hotel is very limited... only a few receptionists are able to have a conversation in English. Even simple tasks become a big effort and require a lot of time, from paying a drink to asking for a chinese address.
Another point that was disappointing was the breakfast, it has a very limited section of "continental" elements, the majority is chinese specialities.
The rooms are quite good and clean.
The location is only good if you want to go to the Peking Universtity or the Summer Palace, all the rest is very far away!

As my title suggest this is located exactly outside the gates of Peking University. If you want to see Tiananmen or other landmarks then it's probably not a good choice. It's in a regional sports training center so at night it's quiet. There are a variety of choices of restaurants in the hotel itself, but if you are tourist who want to explore Beijing then get out of it and you will find many better ones. One side trip you can take is to take a walk around the Weiminghu (Lake Anonymous) in Peking University, you will never forget it.
