The location is a little far from most of the scenic places and one has to take a taxi which cost about 70 rmb and about half an hour to most of these secenic places like the forbidden city etc. However it is about 10 minutes drive from the Olympic Village. it is located diretly opposite the world famous Quanjude Peking duck restuarant. There is also a super market directly opposite the hotel.
The staff of the hotel is good, friendly and attentive. Response to services requested is pretty fast. The room is of decent size although the layout for the newer wing is better than the older wing. the breakfast spread is so so, nothing to crow about in terms of quality.
The bed is pretty firm and the room is well kept and clean.Overall the hotel is value for money
