Reviewed 29 September 2012

Excellent location right beside the Beijing Bookstore and the Wangfujing pedestrian only street. It is also steps from the Oriental Plaza, a huge indoor shopping mall with large food fair inside. A 10 minute walk to Tiananmen Square, Mao's Mausoleum, Chinese Museum of History and the Forbidden City. Also steps away from the Wangfujing Metro Station. The hotel requires a 300 Yuan deposit upon check in but refunded on check out if one does not make use of the drinks in the room. My room has a window but it is deceiving as it actually looks out onto the central courtyard housing a restaurant and not outside the hotel.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms face the courtyard restaurant and not the street. These rooms are probably quiete...

The rooms are clean and looks quite nice. The service is good. Most of the staff can speak English. The location is good as well. It is pretty close to some shopping areas as well as the train station.
This is a hotel that lives up to its 4-star standard, unlike some others who claim to be a 4-star hotel but does up to par.

50 yds from the best shopping street in Beijing - Wangfujing Street. Hotel is beautifully clean, the staff are wonderful and incredibly helpful, right from the Front Officer Manager to the dining room waitress. Our room was on the street side, but the street noise certainly didnt bother us.. we actually opened the window and had our own entertainment watching the taxi's, cars, buses & cyclist vendors in the street below. The beds were a little hard, but then again, it did my back the world of good!

Room Tip: TIP To get to the hotel with the english language poor taxi drivers,.. just tell them Wangfujing Str...

Very nice, modern facility when we visited. Delicious, extensive breakfast buffet daily to accommodate Asian, American, or any international traveler's expectations. Would definitely stay there again. Became a HUGE fan of the steamed milk they offered each morning to go in coffee. Nicely located near stores and restaurants.

Hotel is well situated but I can't say anything good about others...
The concierge attitude towards us was terrible. The concierge was rude to us when we asked him were did the taxi go (we called a taxi and was late by around 15 mins).
The gym is closed and there was no notice on their website that it is closed.
No control over smoking or non smoking floor. We chose a non-smoking floor and there were still people smoking and we can smell it in the whole floor.
Taxi is very difficult to get at that location. You can see taxi drivers waiting around but they will ask for a high price for a trip and won't even put their meter. I asked one of the taxi driver outside the hotel to go to a place not too far, around 10-15 mins drive, he said 120RMB....I can go to the airport almost TWICE with that price.
This hotel is blacklisted for me. Very disappointed.

Like most other reviews, this hotel's value comes from its location and relatively reasonable price. Located within walking distance (15-20 minutes) of Tian'anmen Square and the Forbidden City and right next to Wangfujing Street, it's really hard to beat the location. The breakfast buffet was also quite good. My room -- on the executive 11th floor -- was good enough. Overall, it's a perfectly decent place to stay but nothing to rave about.

This hotel is in a great location. The food was good. The service was good. The beds were horrible! They did not have mattresses. Maybe this is how they do it in China - I'm not sure?
