We stayed at the China World Hotel for 5 days for work. The hotel is located in the middle of the downtown and is close to the silk market, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City.
The public areas of the hotel are grandly designed in a Chinese style so they do make you feel like you are in China rather than being in any city in the world. We only used the lobby bar and breakfast while we were at the hotel but service was quick and efficient though as other reviewers have mentioned it can be a bit hit or miss in terms of the english speaking ability of the staff however everyone was friendly and helpful and if a problem was encountered they would quickly find someone else to help interpret our requests.
We were in the standard room which was quite small but well appointed. The beds were comfortable and the rooms well insulated so you didn't hear noise from any of the surrounding rooms. Whilst the main area of the room was quite small the bathroom itself was spacious with a bath and roomy shower.
We have stayed at Shangri-La properties in Hong Kong and Thailand before and this was similar to those properties and was adequate for our expectations of a city hotel.
