Hotel is very basic, but clean and well maintained, reasonable priced with internet. Great for exploring the city, close to railway station and main Post office with some food stores and restaurants nearby, around 20-30 minutes walk to the Forbidden City and around 20 minutes to a huge modern shopping center. Hotel has a restaurant downstairs - tried only broccoli with some wacky sauce but it was fantastic! lot's of other restaurants close by or some distance from the hotel. Traveling by cab is great fun - I loved it!, very inexpensive, drivers don't speak any English so ask in a hotel to write down your destination/s on a piece of paper, never seen cars like that in my life, driver keeps talking to you in Chinese but who cares, basically it's a big mess but like I said before I loved it. Beijing is very safe for foreign visitors - severe punishments for robbing/assaulting any foreign tourist. Staff in a hotel very helpful, English no problem, rooms cleaned daily, decent bathroom. Overall great stay, comfy beds, had a good night sleep. Would recommend this hotel to anybody interested more in sightseeing and exploring the city rather then staying in a luxury 5* hotel and paying top dollar for it. Chose this hotel because of close proximity to the Forbidden City and value.
