“Good location”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

May 2013 - Stayed here on a 10 day tour. Good location for all the sites. Quick friendly check-in. Nice room - comfy bed. Immaculately clean inside - nice large airy public areas. Good food and very good service. We went and explored on our own including going into a local restaurant on our own. The locals were amazed - no other westerners. They were so nice and helpful but they didn't speak English we didn't speak Chinese. Menu was Chinese. We eventually ordered a fantastic fish dish, chicken and noodles by using hand signals for fish swimming etc. I think the locals thought we were the Cabaret! A great experience we will never forget. I loved Beijing and had no complaints whatsoever about this hotel, it was excellent.

Recently, I stayed twice in this hotel with a group of my friends at our time in Beijing. Both times, the service we had and cleanliness of the hotel was fine. A friendly and helpful reception and rich breakfast were also our other benefits.Nicely furnished and confortable rooms satisfied us during our time in Beijing.

We stayed at this hotel recently as part of a 9 day group tour. The hotel seemed modern and had a nice buffet but was a little expensive at £20 a head for dinner (theres a nice local Chinese restaurant across the road where 4 people can eat and drink for £15 total - we did this).

There was a lot of renovation happening at the time we were there so certain the coffee shop was not in use. The spa/massage area could do with modernising. But all in all it felt a safe place to stay.

There were a lot of westeners in the hotel mainly due to the fact that many china travel groups use it as a hotel stop for Beijing. The location of the hotel is convenient distance from the major sights you may see on a group tour however we didn't feel like going for a walk outside because there was nothing that either appealed to us or we understood. Even in Beijing as a westener you stand out like a sore thumb and people will want a photo with you.

We were happy that this hotel was part of our group tour.

Great Hotel, it was my first time staying in a Holiday Inn outside the U.S, and I was expecting some reliable but regular / low end accommodations... I was absolutely wrong, it is good looking, nice furnished, and service was great.

We stayed here for 3 nights on our tour of China. Beijing was our first stop. Compared to the other hotels we stayed at in China, this one was the least impressive BUT Beijing is also relatively very expensive. So, for the money, it was reasonable value.

The rooms were clean and adequate. The breakfast had good variety and good service (out of all the hotels we stayed at in China, this hotel had the best breakfast for both Western and Asian food).

Watch out for atrocious tourist prices at the hotel restaurant and lounge. Better to go up the street a few blocks to a restaurant called Youth (Youth's) - English friendly menu with pictures, place packed with local families, and very reasonable prices. The food was EXCELLENT. 11 of us shared several dishes and had beer and it worked out to about $5 Canadian per person.

Watch out for stores in the area that will set prices higher just for you - look for stores with posted prices.

Dear Wendy N,

Greeting from Holiday Inn Central Plaza Beijing!

Thanks for staying with us during your tour in China. It is our great pleasure and honor to offer services to you and hope to leave a good impression on you. We are delighted to know that our room and breakfast made you satisfied.

Nearby the hotel, there are many restaurants offering Chinese dishes, like the mentioned Youth Restaurant and ShuXiang RenJia which is just on the steps opposite the hotel. Moreover, it is just ten mins walk from the hotel to the Niujie street where you can taste the most authentic halal food such as the famous instant-boiled mutton. In addition, just ten mins walk in the southern hotel, there is a Merry Mart supermarket where you can get all kinds of goods you need with posted prices.

Thanks for your stay with us again and hope that we could have another opportunity to welcoming you back next time.

Sincerely yours,

I can't praise the staff enough, definitely one of the best group of staff I have encountered in any hotel. From the moment you enter, they've been great. Perhaps due to the location which was not very tourist friendly that made the place relatively quiet (and quaint), the atmosphere was relaxing. It was also situated near the west railway station for those who want to take the high speed trains to other cities.

We paid a little extra for breakfast everyday, and I can't emphasise how great it was to have a good breakfast to start each day of our free and easy tour. International buffet breakfast was delicious, and the staff have been extremely friendly. Location wise, it may be a little far from most tourist attractions, but the taxis in beijing is rather affordable and is a great tool to travel from the hotel to an attractions cluster and back. The gym seems newly renovated and has all you require for a good workout. The pool staff has been very friendly, and the water is maintained at a constant 28degree celsius great for a swim. Overall, a very rejuvenating hotel.

Room Tip: High floors have better views, but choose a floor that is 12 and below if you are an internet junkie...
