Traveling from Korea we notice many Americans and other "laowai" from different countries use this hotel,main reason because it is a unexpensive place to stay a few nights. While in beijing me and my friends stayed here 14 nights. We liked the location but not anymore than the location. The staff did not speak korean ,obviously, but did speak decent English. We were greeted by Ethel,or her chinese name, 翟珊, was helpful first but during our check out she made our time very difficult, saying we made phone calls to Korea and our deposit is now their money because of the phone calls, they told us 497 RMB of phone calls to Korea. We paid extra 50 rmb after the manager,or so they call him a manager, talked to us nervously.we did not make the phone calls! They know it and we know it,this is why they were very nervous. The Ethel girl previously mentioned was brought up in a conversation I had with another hotel guest, they told me this girl overcharged them and lied to them. They also told me, judging by her looks and her obsession with cartoons(the hotel guest had conversation with her) she was as dishonest as her manager among other bad things. She was also very incompetent in helping with anything, like her manager, and also this same girl Ethel, asking this rather strange, asked me if i have a girlfriend. Why would she want to know that? The hotel desk clerk? Why? I am yet to find out and I did not reply her strange question.
The hotel does have free wifi almost in all places, but with frequent interruption of your service.
Overall, myself and 2 friends agree... Good location...but that is all. If you can deal with strange clerks like the Ethel girl and dishonesty. I won't come back.
