“Good for the Price”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

As someone who has stayed at some very scary hotels, this hotel was pretty good. The walls weren't sparkling, but the beds, floors, bathrooms, etc. were nice and clean. The service was pretty good, some spoke English and some did not.

The rooms were small, but good enough. The only thing I would recommend is that the person you stay with is someone you're very close to. The bathroom was a glass room, so you can look across the room while showering (The vital bits can't be seen, though).

It's about a 15 minute walk to the subway (Shilipu on the brown line), and while the walk is fairly direct, it can be a bit long in the heat. The area is very lively at night with street foods and such, and there is a KFC and Pizza hut nearby, as well as Maan Coffee which serves amazing waffles and coffee. The hotel is right next to a pharmacy, and there are multiple shops for buying snacks and drinks.

This is far from a five star hotel, but for the cost it was quite good.

Stayed here two days on a recent trip to China. Foreigner friendly hotel. Safe, clean, great English speaking staff. Only issue was finding the hotel, which I also read here before going so I came prepared. I had a map on my cell, the translated address and asked a few cabbies before choosing one that seemed to know where to go. Make sure they know where this is or they WILL take you to another hotel (or more) and expect you to pay the full fare. Close to the night market & other markets...not much else.

We stayed in Cinderella hotel for three nights during the Chinese New Year Holidays. The price was very reasonable at 100 yuan per night for a twin room. The staff were friendly and helpful, particularly when we made an effort to speak some Chinese with them, and they upgraded one of our rooms to a double room for free when they found out that two of us were a couple.

The rooms were basic and not very clean, though the bedsheets were fine and the hotel was very well-heated during the freezing Beijing winter. There is no bar or anything, and only a basic kitchenette, but there is a good convenience store just down the road and a 24-hour pharmacy next door.

In terms of location, this place could be a bit tricky to find, though we had no real problems. We just called the reception and handed the phone to the cab driver. It's not exactly central here, but Beijing's public transport is good, and the hotel is actually just a short cab ride from Sanlitun, the bustling expat-filled bar area, which also has lots of great restaurants. The receptionist called a cab for us when we were checking out, which arrived within 5 minutes.

All in all, we had little reason to complain. This is a low-budget hotel for sure, but it more than fit the bill for what we needed.

Our room didn't have a window which was really not cool and the location was too far from anything. Not a good place to stay even though it is a cheaper option it takes so much time to go to a fro from here.

On their website the hotel seemed to be nice and cheap, and have some good comments. So we booked 3 days in advence the twin room for 2 nights. As we arrived to Beijing, the troubles already started. I guess it's called Cinderella hotel because you have to work very hard to find it. The directions aren't clear and after a long frustrating search we had to take a taxi in order to find it. Eventually we arrived at 13:30 and wanted to check in, we have been told than the room is not clean and will be ready in 1 hour (we ordered 3 days in advance!). It wasn't the end. Turns out that our room, as opposed to the websites photos, does not have a window, and after explaining a window is a basic thing, they "offered" us a different room with a window but the price is double. The website does not say anything regarding windows. Because of late arrival we had to stay one night and cancel the next one, of course we have been charged for cancellation fees(!!!) Although we stayes in the hotel for 1 night. The website says the have a 24 hours cancellation policy. We didnt even plan to cancel, they practicly forced us with their greedy attitude.
To conclude, the hotel could have earned 5 nights from happy costumers, but instead they decided it was more important to earn another 40 rmb and get angry costumers and bad reviews. To asian's businss school consideration.
