Stayed here as a result if reading glowing reports from other trippers!
Booked over the phone and received email confirmation of my booking.
As I was coming in late from JinanXi on the train I had emailed the hotel back to see if they could arrange to have me picked up by a car rather than take a taxi ( first time in beijing)
They confirmed they would and the price was cheaper than a google search of similar services and not too much more than a taxi. Great start!
Sure enough the driver met me, he was a great driver, very patient with the rest of the beijing terrorist traffic! Didn't use the horn once! He spoke little English so it was a quiet trip.
Arrived and checked in, very friendly and pleasant.
This place is huge, so make sure the receptionist directs you to the right lift, there are 3 different ones that I found!
Went to room, wow, very nice...
Great attention to detail, clean, bed exception with comfortable pillow top,
Remote for the TV only had Chinese on it and try as I could I could only get bbc. No biggie.
It was around 2130 pm so went to the bar for a couple of drinks , no coronas but the Tsingtao was cold, thankfully.
The bar staff were a little distracted, she was either a trainee or he was infatuated with her!
I ordered some chicken wings and got brochettas. I then said not to bother with the wings and sure enough the wings turned up 10 minutes later.
I'm a regular traveler in china so I make sure the wait staff are fully understand my requests. Being an aussie they generally dont understand my english too well.
A little disappointed but hey at the end if the day a very small negative for a great nights sleep.
Went to the gym in the morning, no weight resistance machines but good facility just the same. Water bottles and towels on each machine.
Decided against breakfast and checked out, the free shuttle took me to terminal 3, great service every 15 minutes. Great seats for a shuttle, helpful driver.
Make sure you leave plenty of time at the airport as there are large crowds and delays seem to be the norm here. (Stuck in the plane in the runway for 1.5 hrs so far)
I digres, the langham expensive but them what 5 star airport is not?, it's very hip decor is cool and trendy, it's staff friendly, yep I would stay here again.
