Saw the hotel from Changan Avenue but there was actually no direct path from the main road. We spent 30 mins looking for driving directions and I checked in at around 3am, but even at this hour the front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful! Hotel room itself is bigger than business hotels but bathroom is too funky to my liking. Narrow corridors. Didn't dine in the hotel so not sure about the room there. Overall a comfortable place to stay.

I just stayed at this hotel for several days on a recent trip to China. In short this really is an excellent hotel. I have stayed at other hotels and paid more than four times the price and not received such good value and service. The Crystal Orange is fantastic. If you have any business at the Global Trade Center in Beijing – its right next door. Do not book yourself into the Sheraton, its good but not better for the money. The rooms in the Crystal Orange are boutique style and all the money spent on the hotel has been spent on guest enjoyment. Whoever invested knew what they were doing. I see from other posts that people were unhappy with the breakfast. Let me tell you there is a 24 hours KFC right over the road. Like many Chinese you can go there for breakfast if you really feel you are not happy with the Crystal Orange Breakfast. Actually I thought the breakfast was OK. All the staff speak English, and there is always someone on duty who has very strong English. Many young and rich Chinese stay at this hotel. The only issue is that it’s not that big, and the website is not dual language. But let me tell you this new, fresh and extremely high quality hotel right by Beijing’s Global Trade Center will not disappoint. Great rooms, imaginatively and thoughtfully decorated, with a motivated and knowledgeable English speaking staff- all for the price of a so so hotel? Come on you’d be crazy to stay anywhere else!!

Room Tip: Floors 2 and 3 are smoking the other 5 floors are not.

Just came back from an excellent stay at the Crystal Orange Hotel Jianguomen. Prior to arriving in Beijing I had spent ages looking for a good quality, reasonably priced and city centre located hotel for a 3 night stay. There being so many hotels in Beijing, there were a lot of hotels to go through and consider, in the end it was the Crystal Orange that fit all the criteria and it certainly didn't disappoint. The hotel was booked on Ctrip.com at RMB518 per night for a standard room.

The hotel is located just off Jianguomen Outer Street, a large and busy main road through Beijing. The nearest subway station is Yonganli, from the airport I had taken the airport express train to Dongzhimen and then transferred on to the subway which required one change before arriving at Yonganli. Once there it was about a 15 min walk to the hotel. Make sure you find out the exact location of the hotel and plan your route as it is not so easy to find. The hotel is located on a small residential back street off the main road. The hotel is within walking distance to the Guo Mao CBD district and embassy district, there are many eateries, convenience stores etc. nearby and also a supermarket about a 5 min walk away.

Inside the hotel, the lobby is very modern and very cool. The front desk staff work off laptops and check-in was easy, staff know good enough English. There is one lift for the hotel, I was on the 7th floor, I think there were 11 floors. Never found it a problem and never had to wait long for the lift to arrive.

Once enter the room music starts playing. They have a selection of tunes from the Hotel Costes compilation of lounge music which is stored on an SD card plugged into the multi-media music player and starts up once you put your card key in the slot. The room is lovely and has everything you could need. Firstly the decor is modern and looks great, the size is fine, not big but not small either and is decked out with the latest gadgets and features. As mentioned before there is a multimedia music player which allows you to dock your iPhone/iPod, plays CDs and MP3s on an SD card. On the wall is a 42" LG LCD TV, provided is an HDMI cable which you can hook up to your laptop etc. to use the TV as a monitor. VGA cables, RGB cables etc. are available upon request. By the desk are 2 international plug sockets, an ethernet cable for internet, HDMI and VGA plugs for hooking up with the TV. Internet usage in room is free via wifi or ethernet cable.
The lighting is controlled with a touch panel with a number of preset lighting programmes depending on your mood/requirement. The touch panel can be a bit unresponsive but you have to press it in the right way. The panel is lit in blue when lights are off. The air conditioning is also controlled using a touch panel, didn't really figure out how to work it but the default setting is fine.

The bathroom is nice and big, it has a big glass wall to the room but has blinds if you need the privacy. The bathroom features a bath tub, walk in shower and toilet. The basin is outside of the bathroom. The bathroom amenities are good and comes with all the usual things, the toothbrush set comes with a good quality toothbrush, not your usual disposable ones. Shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and lotion is provided. A hair dryer is provided in one of the storage compartments under the basin.

Other room features include a safe, a minibar/fridge, a Rubik’s cube (which if you solve you get a free coffee) and a little fish bowl which comes with a little introduction letter. A small chocolate is placed on each pillow each day.

Breakfast is in the restaurant located on the ground floor by the lobby. It is done on an order basis rather than buffet like most hotels. Having realised this, rather than having the breakfast in the restaurant I requested it to be taken to my room as room service. I had it as room service for the other days of my stay. The selection is basic but good and will fill you up for the morning ahead. You choose from a section of congee - sweet or savoury, bread - croissant, toast, ham sandwich or tuna sandwich, eggs - fried, scrambled, omelette with smoked salmon and drink - tea, coffee, juice etc. The breakfast also comes with a 2 bacon rashers, fruit selection, a salad and a yoghurt. The breakfast is priced at RMB45.

So to conclude I had a wonderful stay at the Crystal Orange Jianguomen Beijing, and would definitely stay here again next time I am in Beijing. Would also love to try out the Crystal Orange hotels in other cities.

I generally stay at Hotel G but could not get in on this trip. Was recommended this hotel by friend. Room is nice and comfortable. Main negative was 1) trying to figure out air con, which did not matter that much as it is a cool spring day; and 2) the breakfast which is bad and not worth rmb45 price - go grab breakfast off of street surrounding hotel. It is also difficult to find, so make sure you have hotel number so front desk and explain to taxi driver how to get here. Location is great and would consider staying here again if meetings are in this part of town.

We were there for a 4 night stay.
It is centrally located and close to GuoMao offices, CBD.
However it is on a small street off JingGuoMenDaJie. Very unlikely to get an empty taxi without walking about 500 m to JingGuoMenDaJie.

The rooms are nice (we stay in the cheapest room- the only vacant non-smoking room we can book).
Bed mattress is good, the changed linen were new on 1 of the nights. Wifi signal inside the room is excellent.

A downside is that we only received a late checkout grace period of 2 hrs to 2pm (we have purchased a VIP membership for this benefit). The front desk said the computer system do not allow flexibility of an additional 30 min we would like before leaving for our flight.

One downside for this stay, the other 1/2 of the building was being converted by another company for a separate hotel. The construction (hammering and drilling)noise started just past 8 am.
