Stayed here as a family as part of our China tour. The best part of this hotel is the location (5 mins walk from 2 different tube lines and only 2 stops from Forbidden City, 10 mins walk from 2 major shopping centres). There are a number of excellent French managers with the remaining staff having variant levels of English (but all better than my Chinese). Service was excellent when asked for. Breakfast is excellent.
Negatives were the slightly tired rooms and not having interconnecting or adjacent rooms as requested (being in Beijing with 2 blond daughters is surreal as there are so many photos taken that is like been followed by the paparattzi).
Overall, I'd recommend it as a base for a trip for a Beijing visit.More
