We booked a week's stay at the Beijing "Perfect" Inn because it had awesome rates, and decent tripadvisor reviews. We didn't need a big fancy schmancy place with kiss a** service. Our main concern was clean and no bedbugs at a decent rate, and Beijing "Perfect" Inn seemed to be just that.
Check-in and check-out was painful since English wasn't their forte and Mandarin isn't mine. Then, there was the 3 flights up stairs (NO ELEVATOR) with our luggage. After a sweaty climb with all our bags, we ended up in a small (expected, so not a big deal) room filled with the smell of recently sprayed air freshner.
As we started unpacking and the air freshner wore off, we smelled some unpleasant odor. After some quick unpacking, we headed out for a quick late night snack. As we were walking down the street, we passed a manhole and got a whiff of the same unpleasant odor from our room. We noticed this everytime we passed a manhole . . .
When we returned to our room, we confirmed that the same unpleasant odor in our room matched the smell around manholes. Sewer smell! We immediately booked elsewhere . . .
Maybe I have a sensitive nose, but smell at your own risk is my warning!
