“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2013

Hotel is conveniently located near major attractions, shopping malls, markets and the subway. Communication with hotel staff can be a major problem because many do not speak good English. Had a bad experience with a concierge who could not speak English and gave very bad service. Rooms are very spacious but need updating. The smell of cigarette smoke is common in many rooms. My wife and I were given 2 single beds as were many other couples in our tour group, whereas singles were given king sized beds. Bar is of a very poor standard. Breakfast is average, coffee machine was constantly out of order. Poor exercise facilities. Overall the low point of a great time in Beijing.

I choose this hotel for a small business trip to Beijing.

Pros: The rooms are good in size and spacious, the locations good, adjacent to Subway, in reach with Mc Donalds, KFC and a local shopping complex as well. The staff was helpful , the breakfast was decent.

Cons: The room was slightly old, the bathroom was spacious, but slightly old in terms of accommodation.

Room Tip: Ask for newly furnished rooms if they have any.

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.
