I use Trip Advisor as a travel bible, I had high expectations for this place.
The staff was so lovely. I can't say enough kind things.
The rooms were dark, the heating was a tad off. As my friends and I were jetlagged, we had no problem going straight to bed.
As it was cold, having an open plan was not ideal. I can see this hotel being more enjoyable in the summer months.
The worst part of the hotel was the location. We couldn't get clear directions. We were encouraged not to take taxi's as they would not be able to find their way back? For this reason, we stayed local the 1st night (recommendation from hotel) and the 2nd night we were so tired we decided to eat at the hotel. Unfortunately, the chef was on vacation so there was nothing to eat but awful pizza or pasta bolognese. This was a shame as there was a full menu when we decided not to venture out.
If I made my way back to Beijing, I would stay elsewhere.
