We stayed in this hotel for a couple of days when we visited Beijing back in 2013. We are very happy with it because it is
- sets back from the street, so quiet
- friendly staff
- great location, walking distance to the subway
We definitely recommend it.

Very good location, not far from the Financial Street, but much lower price.

The decoration is old and room is really small, especially I just came from Hilton WFJ, LOL.

But sleep quality is good, and service is not bad.

After all, it is match the price and good for some IHG missions completion.

Room Tip: No view at all, so don't be struggle in choosing the room with the good view outside.

The location is convenient and the rooms are good. Although you may find signs of wear n tear in few rooms but that can be overlooked. The staff goes out of its way in helping you and are the nerve to this place. Couple of English speaking guys who really know customer service. The only down side is if you are a hard core vegetarian like me than you might find it bit tough to manage with the breakfast n food. Overall, a good and convenient place to stay.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013

Overall this hotel is a great value, and the staff was extremely helpful.

My first room had plumbing issues, and the heater was stuck on ultra-hot. Wasn't a great start to the stay, but the hotel staff was extremely helpful and moved me to a new room. Couldn't have asked for better treatment.

Hotel rooms are nice, plenty of space, and compared to other hotels I've stayed in Beijing on par the hotel class. Morning buffet is included, and was quite good.

The WIFI was frustrating at times as it could be pretty slow. Part of that was due to the China Firewall I'm sure, but I had more internet troubles in this hotel then others I'd stayed at before. If you need a fast internet for video conferences, etc you might want to look elsewhere. If you just need to check your email and do the basics it's more then adequate.

The metro is less than 5 minutes away. Taxi's are still cheap in Beijing so I'd recommend taking a Taxi to the hotel for the first time to get situated, then use the metro for travel during rush hour - but stick with Taxi all other times of the day. It's quicker, and extremely cheap. 90 RMB to the airport with no traffic.

Also be warned, not a single taxi driver knew where this hotel was at first glance. They all figured it out, but usually after calling someone on their phone or asking the doorman. Don't be shocked to be sitting in the taxi 2-5 minutes before you actually start moving. I would recommend printing out a larger map of the area. The hotel cards they give don't show enough to get a feel for where the hotel is.

Here's a tip on the heating/air conditioning. I stayed in November, and they only had heating. If your room is hot, do not turn down the temp or increase the fan speed. All that's going to do is pump in more hot air. If you want to cool down the room, turn everything off. Your room will then cool down quite quickly.

Overall, a great value and I would stay there again.

Just returned from this hotel. it is well located near the subway which was a doddle to use. The hotel itself has a nice loby area. We were on the club floor in a good sized room, it was very comforbale, no issues with the room at all. Club floor also gave us access to the club lounge where we enjoyed a few beers and snacks after sightseeing all day. We also had free internet access. The food in the restaurant was good as well, we had the chicken curry. My only criticism is that it took until the third night before we were offered the food menu, and there were spirits bottles available in the lounge when I believe they should have been there every night. If they are not there, remember to ask!

I stayed here for 3 nights and was very fortunate to be upgraded to a state room. The facilities were great, and breakfast in the cafe was busy but reasonable choices available. It's biggest advantage was that it was 5 minutes walk from the subway so was very easy to get around. My only real complaints were the smoke smell in the room and the inability to cool the room (only heat), but I didn't specifically ask for non-smoking and the cooling issue is one I have had in most hotels across the world.

The concierge didn't speak english very well at all (well it is China after all!), but they were very good to arrange my train tickets for onward travel.
