My wife, my daughter and I stayed at this hotel for 5 days in early April 2012. We were very lucky that we had the name of the hotel written in Chinese characters because many taxi drivers do not speak English.
The room was nice but I agree with other reviews that it is a bit rundown. Our room faced the street but we did not hear any traffic or other noise. The staff was very nice and very attentive. The manager asked us several times whether we were enjoying our stay.
We ordered room service a lot and found the service very quick and the food good. We took a cab to the Forbidden city but had difficulty finding a cab back to the hotel. We asked the concierge to organize a taxi ride to the Great Wall (it cost around $100). He was very friendly and he spoke some English. We organized other tours with him and even an airport transfer.
The Fat Duck restaurant was excellent. We had the tradiitonal Peking duck one night and it was amazing. We ate often at the concierge level. The mall is across the street from the hotel and they have many restaurants.
I went to the French cafe across the street and found it difficult to communicate with the staff. I asked for an espresso but I needed help from a fellow patron to translate. Who knew this would be so difficult?
The maid noticed that we used lots of bottles of water so we provided extra everyday for us. This was very appreciated. The staff was really great.
