“Great hotel!!”
Reviewed 9 October 2012 via mobile

Stayed four night here in 2011! The room we had was great, big and clean! There is not shop and restaurant near to the hotel, but I guess u can either eat in hotel or take the metro out which is next to the hotel!! Enjoyed my stay!
Try not to book sir ticket in hotel, as the price they offer is at least 20-30% higher than the online price! Do the booking yourself through airline maybe?

The rooms are spacious but the furnishings are very dated. The carpet was dirty and the bed was hard (but a hard bed is typical for local Chinese-owned hotels). A slight tint of cigarette smoke odor was present. The hallway carpets were old and dirty as well. Great location, however, and a short walk to Wangfujing Avenue.

Location of this hotel is nice, it's in main street of Beiing with walking distance to pedastrian's street with many shops and atractions. Staff is friendly and helpfull. Breakfast is fine, reach and tasty. Rooms are clean and big. Price is reasonable.

Reviewed 20 September 2011

This hotel is at the intersection of subway line 1 and line 5, Dandong station. The location is near several local banks. However, I found out that I cannot use my ATM card at these local banks, must be a national bank, such as Bank of China, or China Construction Bank. There is no national banks near this hotel. Although convenient for travelers because of the proximately to two subway lines, the surrounding is completely dead at night. I've been to many Chinese cities and stay in many hotels. This is the only one hotel that I can remember that has no restaurants, snack stands, convenient stores, or any eateries... nearby. Also, one of the subway lines ( I don't remember which) has a lot of steps ( 100 steps, I counted) to get to the ground level and both do not have escalators. Therefore, if you come here from the airport, do not attempt to take the subway, take a taxi. You can take the airport train to Donzhimen subway station (where the train terminates) and then take a taxi to this hotel. However, there is no escalator at Donzhimen; you have to struggle with the luggage.The room that we stayed in have no windows. Where the window should be is a wall behind a curtain. I've never been to a hotel with rooms that have no windows. But then, this is China, you have to expect the unexpected! The wall at the hallway that leads to the bathroom has a frosted glass; you can see the silhouette of the person sitting on the potty! Why did they have to put a glass there?! Otherwise, the room is spacious and comfortable. TV has English channels.

Room Tip: A room with window cost more. A basic room has no window.

This was a good place to stay, and I would stay again. The location was good (although traffic in this central area was a real pain, there is a subway station right next to the hotel).

Other strong points:

-- Large, comfortable room.
-- Staff that was helpful and cooperative. (Obviously, English is not their first language, but they were well trained to understand basic requests and to comply in a friendly way.)
-- Good, smoothly working (for China) internet.
-- Pretty good breakfast buffet, with a wide choice of foods.
-- Reasonable price.

Main weak point: lighting. The bedside lighting was insufficient for reading (a 25 w incandescent lamp -- which could be dimmed further if you wanted!). And in the bathroom, the lights for shaving, or applying makeup, were too dim. Guess this place should be considered as BYOB -- bring your own bulb!
