This hotel could best be described as an average, and clean western owned hotel. It is in a decent area - close walk to Tienamin for the early morning flag raising (not to be missed) but overall is far from the entertainment and restaurant district (Sanlitun)
The hotel has a policy of severely overbooking and then fighting with you over giving you access to higher end rooms - instead wanting your associates to sleep together... Not on.
The hotel is clean, has a good fitness facility which is well stocked with old but functional equipment. The pool is delightful but contrary to the pictures is underground/in the basement.
Breakfast in the restaurant is fantastic.
Beds are okay.
Bathrooms could use some TLC and renos. The quantity of smoking which has occurred in the hotel is obvious. Getting a taxi in this district is a nightmare.
