Stayed four nights in July. The breakfast was quite good with a nice variety. Always had someone available to help us plan and book things such as cab driver to Mutianyu, subway passes, and an acrobatic show. We were also given good itineraries on rainy days. Overall a very good value in Beijing.

After reading hotel reporst on Trip Advisor we chose Central Plaza and were delighted at the result, We were travelling independently and made all our arrangements on the internet. Holiday Inn faxed the Hotel name and address in chinese for the taxi driver at the airport and fro there on everythin went to plan. The Hotel provides good clean modern accommodation ,meals at the buffet restaurant were excellent abd the staff were all very helpful, there is a happy atmosphere throughout. Storm , already mentioned in other reports is superb, sorting out our transport to the great wall, Forbidden City and also arranging meals at local restaurants on 2 nights. We had the Peking Duck meal and on another night Mushroom Hotpot, Both reccomended. The Hotel is Excellent Value for money. it is located if anything it is a bit off city centre but this is not a big problem as a taxi is required to go to most places. We also Stayed at The Grand Hyatt in Central beijing, the was more Luxury but more expensive but offset by the fact that most sights were within walking distance. We`would have no hesitation at returning the Central Plaza

My wife and I have been to China four times and we decided to experience the Holiday Inn Central Plaza through Trip Advisor for a night before we went toTianjin.
The service at the front desks was excellent and the staff were very polite.
David took our luggage to our room and was very warm and helpful. I needed to change my SIM Card and he went with me to buy a Chinese one and this made things a lot easier for me.
The room was very clean and spacious and had all the amenities that you need in a hotel.
The only disappointing thing was that when we went for breakfast on the 4th of Oct the whole dining room was filled with young children. This was because of National Week and the hotel were kind enough to give the children breakfast. We had to wait for about half an hour before we could get in to have our breakfast and our time was limited as well. I think the hotel did a lovely gesture but there should have been reserved tables for the guests at the hotel.
Otherwise I would recommend this hotel to any of my friends back in Australia
Keep up the good work

We stayed at this hotel based on the prior comments. It was the first time we have travelled to China and we did it without a guide service. The staff was excellent. David helped us obtain train tickets and even walked us to the ticketing office. We might still be there without his help. The rooms were very clean and spacious. The bed were not as hard as other ones were. We had a standard room. We walked every morning and night around the neighborhood to experience the Chinese lifestyle. We even played ping-pong at the nearby park with the elderly locals. There are many little shops and nearby grocery stores. Across the street from the hotel is an unmarked restaraunt that has fantastic food. They do not speak English and we do not speak Chinese but they had pictures on the menu and it was awesome.

The location was very quiet and a little bit out of the way. If you wanted to see the main attractions of Beijing, you will need to obtain a taxi. There was almost always one at the taxi stand.

My wife and I have just returned from 3 nights at the HI Central Plaza, Beijing. We booked on the basis of past recommendations from Trip Advisor reports - the whole experience was first class. We contacted the concierge Storm Li before our visit and he arranged for us to be picked up in the port city of Xianging on arrival there on the Diamond Princess cruise ship. We were delighted to find that Storm came himself. He brought some other guests from Beijing who were embarking the ship that day. He took us for a morning tour of the port city, most enjoyable, and then on reserved seats on the Bullet train to Beijing, which at 330 kph took only 45 minutes to make the 200 kilometer journey, (I found out from other hotel guests it took over 3 hours by road.) The total cost of the tour and journey was only 700 yuan, which is less than 50% of what the transfers would have cost had we booked them with the cruise company.

The hotel itself is as good as everyone has said previously and Storm's services can only be described as outstanding. On our second day he personally took us to the Great Wall at Mutianyi, where there were no other tourists to be seen, and we had a delicious lunch at a farmhouse owned by some friends of Storm, followed by afternoon tea at another farmhouse. We can only describe that day as one of the best days of our lives.

We were somewhat apprehensive about going around Beijing by ourselves, but Storm organised everything so well that we never had a moment's concern. He supplied us with a cell phone for our stay which had his phone number in, so that if we ever had any problems we could phone him to sort things out. We never actually needed it, but what was amazingly reassuring was that Storm phoned us regularly, just to check that we were OK. He even arranged for a damaged suitcase to be repaired during our visit, and that only cost 50 yuan (£5 uk or about $7.50!!).

If Storm reads this review we'd like to give him a very public and massive thank you.

There are nice hotels and good hotels and then are some with the WoW factor and that is what we felt when we first stepped in the Hotel. It has excellent value for money and we actually tried hard to see way it was so incredibly reasonable. May be it was the location as it is a 10 minutes ride from the nearest subway station (CNY 10 by cab) and since it’s a new place it’s a little difficult to explain it to the Cab guys.

The check-in was precisely 2 mins flat or was 1 and a half minute!!

The lobby is huge and very nicely decorated has 3 very good restaurants (it was a big bonus as we didn’t have to step out for dinner and had a great time unwinding every evening) with excellent food , a good collection of wines and they seemed to be very popular with the locals too and rightly so. The ambience was great too - with only candle lights and the works.

Once in the room it was another delight with a very spacious room, great décor, a lot of bonus amenities and lovely lighting. The quality of the each and every thing was awesome and there was good space provided for the luggage etc. The water in the bath was always at perfect temperatures and it was very beautifully done up. They even had an antique looking weighing scale – which I decided not to step after the awesome meals at the restaurants.

They had a nice covered pool and a fitness center and salon but the massage at the salon (which you will need after the extensive walking in the city) is nothing to write home about.

The breakfast was the best spread that we had seen anywhere will all cuisines and all the frills and lovely fare to choose from – certainly a highpoint.

The staff is excellent, courteous, very helpful, very well groomed and well informed.

There is also curio stop in the hotel has a train ticket booking terminal which helped book onwards journey tickets and saved us a trip to the railway station. But language is an issue here.

Overall it is great luxury and excellent value for money.
