First, the location is phenomenal. Directly down the road from the Tienanmen Square and one side of the building looks out toward the Forbidden City.
However, the hotel needs a renovation. The carpeting in my room was lumpy and was not attached to the floor. It also was not cut to the correct size and there were seams everywhere. Made me feel uncomfortable in the room.
Also, I found the breakfast buffet in red wall cafe to be far below average, when compared to other breakfasts I had at hotels in two other cities on the same trip. The food is not heated and cooled properly and also strange taste. They Red Wall Cafe also offers a buffet dinner, which is horribly overpriced and also questionable food quality.
To be honest I might not stay here again just because I did not enjoy the food aspect and I need a reliable food source when I travel for business.
The room cleaning staff was very friendly. The Concierge tried to be helpful but they really didn't offer much of anything in terms of service. Also, complete lack of information about historical, tourist, and cultural sights. Just research it on your own.
