I've stayed here twice, due to having business nearby. There is not much reason for most visitors to Beijing to chose this hotel, as it is a bit pricey for what it is. The main plus is that it is about 10 minutes walk to 3 subway lines, including the one to the airport, so for someone traveling light and flying in and out of Beijing, it could be pretty convenient.
Unlike most chain hotels, this appears to be a remodeled older hotel. There is a restaurant inside (fish heads!) that appears to be an independent business.
Otherwise, the rooms are basic, but clean. I had a little trouble adjusting the shower temp, but no other serious problems and the room was pretty quiet for a busy location.
The room includes basic toiletries, bottled water, wired and wireless internet, fairly good lighting, disposable slippers (on the small side), and a decent number of outlets.
The front desk is always busy and not super helpful. I doubt they speak English.
Ask for the internet access on check-in, as you need to be given access (and the staff don't ask). Also, when you get to the room, go ahead and request more toilet paper, as the roll is really small.
There are cards for prostitutes under the door each day. Not ideal, though for me it is a little better than the nightly phone calls in many Chinese hotels.
There are cheaper chain hotels all over Beijing, and nicer places to stay in this price range or for just a little more, but this is a good lower cost value in the Dizhimen area.
