Good hotel, poor staff

Hotel is in a great location, close to famous city sightseeing places. Rooms are clean. However, be ready to be not understood by the hotel staff. They all say that they speak "little english", but this statement is overrated since they hardly speak any English, which gets quite annoying. If you stay in the European or western brand hotel, you will get a better chance to communicate your needs.

Hotel needs some updates

This hotel seems dated and the beds are not very comfortable. There seems to be a much needed renovation starting next month so hope all will improve. Wireless internet connection is very poor and the pay version is only for wire, which won't do much for some of the newer devices that relies only on WIFI.

1ST TIME IN BEIJING

VERY PLEASANT, NOTHING OUTSTANDING BUT SOLID, NO SURPRISES. BREAKFAST BUFFET WAS EXCELLENT, AT DINNER AT OTHER RESTAURANTS IN WALKING DISTANCE. WIDE DIVERSITY IN GUEST FROM OTHER COUNTRIES. GREAT EXPERIENCE. I WAS THERE ON BUSINESS AND DID NOT HAVE TIME TO DO MUCH SITE SEEING.

Quick Business Trip

Clean, spacious, superb location. Set back from the street yields quiet environment, ideal after a long jet lagged journey. Proximity to # 2 subway line a strong positive for managing additional travel to and from the airport (airport express), central railway station and with one transfer the south railway station.

Worth Considering

After 19 hours of travel from Melbourne, I was really looking forward to a good night sleep. To my dismay, the bed was effectively a concrete slab with a sheet. While hard beds are commonplace in China, this one took the cake. I even pulled the sheet back to check if it was actually a mattress...it was. The bed aside, the hotel was fair enough, especially considering it was lower priced than many options. The room was spacious, the staff pretty adept with English and it was walking distance to Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City. They also were able to book train tickets, something my Shanghai hotel wasn't able to do. I would probably stay there again if I return to Beijing.

OK. Excellent location,

The location is very near a subway station, walking distance to Tiananmen Square, convenient to many things. This is a big, famous hotel showing its age. Rooms are worn, though functional and well-equipped. Staff speak excellent English and service is good. Restaurants in the hotel are passable, expensive, and not quite worth the expense. Extra charge for internet service. I'd stay again but would rather classify the hotel as 3-3.5 star.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Stay here for the convenient location. Having the subway nearby means that you can get around easily. Taxis may not want to take you here (or elsewhere in the central area of Beijing) because of the impossible traffic. 10 minutes on subway = 45 minutes in taxi!
