We (family of 5) stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in July 2013.
The staff were friendly and helpful, and the reception staff spoke moderate English (certainly enough to help us with any queries). We'd booked a trip to the Great Wall as part of our tour, and when the driver called to arrange a collection time, they asked him to delay by 15 minutes so that we would have time for breakfast before we left.
The rooms were clean and the toilets/showers of a good standard. Breakfast, whilst modest, was ample and made a good start to the day.
The hotel (down a side road) is ideally situated for the Tiananmen/Forbidden City (20 min walk) and close to the metro (5 min walk).
I would certainly stay there again.
The only negative is that laundry was rather expensive. I don't know whether this is the hotel's mark-up or whether this service is just expensive in Beijing. We actually found our clothes hanging out to dry in a local side street (about 1 minute walk). Maybe worth taking the clothes direct to the "laundrette" yourself.
