“Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2012

In short - a good hotel

And now, in detail:
huge plus is the location of the hotel, metro is very close and the pedestrian street Wanfujin is in walking distance 10 minutes (slow pace)
The taxi driver did not know where the hotel is but the hotel staff explained everything and provided detailed information of how to get there.
Hotel room was not expensive and total bill didn't surprise us with any hidden charges or service tips, comfortable and possessing for a rest after different Beijing adventures.
Also, staff in the event of problems with the Internet has helped to quickly figure it out everything was fixed, we were satisfied.
By the way in the lobby there is a fridge with drinks, which you can buy for a normal price.

Now for the cons: the level of English among the employees shocked us, very weak, and the level of information about the area was limited by the phrase "you must call taxi", also there is a tourism agent in the lobby, who also can't speak very good. There were some problems with cleanliness in the bathroom and near the elevator, but in general after 2 nights in the train it wasn't a big problem.

In general, we would suggest this hotel to the travelers who are not planning to stay in this hotel for a long time, just for a few nights to discover Beijing.

The hotel are super close to the subway train station, on the way walking to the subway train station station has a cake shop which offer breakfast meal with a sandwish and a cup of coffee or tea with just RMB22.
The hotel also close to Wangfujing, which I personally think it was just selling expensive things here, I am here for a walk properly for 30 mins wallk but can't get any thing cheap here. It was plenty of renstaurent nearby the Wangfujing street with offer good price and great service and I think it worth to pay a visit especially restaurent WangFuLai.
The room we book was different from the picture view from the website. We actually booked a room with outer big window, but infect, the reception told the room were actually facing inner "created coridoor" (it was a coridoor lighten up with light and some fate bamboo tree which make you feel like small open air but infect it was a non ventilated with wide of 3-4ft width). So we request to change the room to outer facing room and now the room is with a 1ft by 2 ft lenght top hung window hanging at high level, about 1.8m above the floor. These room are consider as medium size for the hotel. The hotel room has an open cabinet (size 2ft d x 3ft w x 8ft h), a table (2ft d x 3ft w x 4ft h), 3 small side table (with one are actually slot in the small corner with a table lamp). Toilet are actually 4ft x 5ft (including W.C., wash basin and a shower area), the flashing were actually install underneath the wash basin, where I need to bend down to press the water flushing for W.C. THe shower area are just 2 ft by 3ft, so it is not convenient to big size people of any one with family here. The bed are reasonable hard, at leat better than many hotel that I had been stay in China. The floor carpet has pieces of apple and some obvious rubbish when we were first come into the hotel.
For those who are here for shopping, can go to shopping plaza near Beijing Zoo for cloth, bag, ladies wear (if take subway train to Beijing Zoo, all the plaza were just at opposite road of the Beijing Zoo) and go to BaiRong for shopping on the toy.

Room Tip: Could find a room near subway station line 2 or line to cut down the numbers of time for train trans...
