Our Asia trip started in Beijing, and we landed at 6am. We were really tired when we arrived to the hotel around 7.30 am. We knew that they had a policy for check in around 2 pm so we asked them to put our bags in the baggage room when we went out for some breakfast. I asked when we could check in, just because of our early arrival and very little sleep, we wanted our room asap. Then she said that the room will be done around 9 am. We were so happy that they let us check in that early! Great service!
The room was cute, and clean! As many others wrote, we also had a fish and Rubik’s cube. Bathroom was nice with a big shower cabin. We had a flat screen TV, but only with Chinese channels. The only thing I missed in the room was a wardrobe, somewhere to put the big bag. Also, the bed was very hard. Though, during the rest of our trip, I understood that’s how it is around China and Japan.
Staff’s English is not good at all. It was only one girl that spoke a little bit of English. Or else I had to get the Chinese sign, or a picture of what I wanted, then they could kind of help me. But they were very helpful and tried their best!
It’s also close to the Beijing Zoo, as well as other tourist attractions. It takes around 10 min to walk to the closest subway station. Then it was kind of easy to get to Forbidden City etc.
The restaurant in front of the hotel is really good! We enjoyed it, though we didn’t totally knew what we were eating (no English speaking staff).
