“Better than some reviews make out”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Stayed for a few nights on a work trip to Beijing, and approached this with some trepidation given other reviews. Basically its fine - more like a 2/3 star in the UK, but the rooms were modern-ish, firm beds, good air con, reasonable bathrooms. The whole place stinks of cigarette smoke, but then so does much of Beijing. Wifi is free in the lobby and just about functional there. Never got it to work in rooms, possibly better if you've a wired connection, but don't expect too much.

The hotel has a restaurant on the 23rd floor whcih is just about OK food-wise and has a view of the Birds Nest stadium and even rotates some nights. Not much English spoken, but you can get a beer, just about, with a bit of pointing. Lobby bar is hopeless, so go outside, turn left 100m and go in to Mikes bar which is in the car park. Much better, if a windowless dungeon.

The Gym doesn't exist any more, but there is a park of sorts over the road if you fancy braving the smog.

Reviewed 9 November 2013

I stayed in this hotel for two nights as part of a business trip. The traditional hard mattress was very uncomfortable and resulted in me lying awake most of the first evening I stayed there. The facilities are basic and the hotel is in need of some redecoration in the rooms.

Breakfast is served on the 23rd floor which has a great circular view of the surrounding areas of Beijing and it's possible to see the Birds Nest Stadium in the distance on a clear day. We stayed there as it was located close to the exhibition centre at the Olympic Park and it is close enough to the centre to mean that it's only a short taxi ride away.

For me the bed was the main problem and we moved to another hotel for the final night of our stay. If not for this then the hotel, whilst basic, would have been serviceable for a short stay. They provide free wired internet in the bedroom which worked without issue.

Room Tip: Not a good choice unless you can sleep on a very hard mattress

This hotel is close to the metro station which makes it easy to move around. The rooms and service are good also the breakfast on the top is impressive. The reception is friendly and helpful. Nice place to stay.

This hotel is called international but it’s not very adapted to foreigners and I have been to better hotels and more foreign-friendly ones in Beijing. The room was just average, the people didn’t speak English at the reception or at the bar, the common areas were smelly and noisy and the neighborhood very average. The bar at the top has a nice view and I had a nice drink of chrysanthemum tea practically all alone, not many people. In the room , there was a small desk, the bed was OK, the bathroom small and old… They had you paying for some of the amenities!! The small shop at the bottom floor had only old and uninteresting items. I think you can find better deals in Beijing, closer to the center.
