Arrived at this hotel by taxi (an experience in itself), we were instantly greeted with a drink and had our bags collected by the bellhop. Check in was a painless experience and we were offered a free upgrade due to the quietness of the hotel. The view isn't much to speak of, but the hotel room is very comfortable with a medium-firm bed and a choice of pillows. All the usual facilities such as tv, safe, desk, ironing board, toiletries etc are available in the room. Staff are very welcoming, though there is a slight edge of this being more of a business hotel. Staff replenish a free bottle of water and small treats every day, strangely the minibar was never stocked except for two very small, very expensive (40RMB) Evian bottles. Still a 24 hour store is a short walk away. The bathroom is large, with a powerful shower over a flat bath. All in all a comfortable if standard hotel experience. Location wise it is well placed for a 30 minute walk to the main shopping streets, night food market and Tiananmen Square and The Forbidden Palace (distances on the map are deceiving). Across the road is Da Dong Roast Dick Restaurant, reportedly some of the best peking duck in the city, while turn left out of the hotel and a few local style restaurants are available. We tried the Cantonese one and the dishes were ok. At night a food market is open, a 15-20 minute walk from the hotel but, as with restaurants, get in early as most shut at 10pm. Beijing North train station serves Badaling for a section of the Great Wall. A taxi took the best part of 45 mins to get there but a subway station is a short walk from the hotel, so try that instead.
