I was booked at Beijing Yayuncun Hotel (Building A) while attending a conference at the China National Convention Center. Some things OK with the place, but overall I can't recommend it. Built as athlete housing for the Asian and Olympic Games, these "service apartments" are a poor substitute for a real hotel. Located about 10-minutes walk from the Bird's Nest Stadium, but a good 20-minute walk from the Convention Center (don't let people tell you it's 5 or 10 minutes.... it's not, unless you're an Olympic runner yourself!). Near to a McDonald's, KFC, large supermarket, and a few shops, but not close to anything else.
The "hotel" rooms are small and smelly, with no view from the backside rooms (so you choose between street noise or the view of another building). Rooms need paint and good scrubbing. Absolutely no photos or art work on the walls; hallways are sterile and boring. Rooms do have good TVs, with reasonable selection of channels including CNN, BBC, HBO and a few other English channels. Reasonable lighting in the rooms, and direct-cable internet provided free. Bed is comfortable if you light firm/hard mattress (I do); linens clean and comfortable. Small refrigerator in the room. Bathroom was small and smelly, with ancient fixtures, but with lots of hot water for good showers. Basic breakfast is included
Room is tolerable overall, but given another opportunity, I would certainly look for other alternatives, even if I have to pay considerably more.
