Great Location for visiting the heart of Beijing

The staff was very helpful and accommodating. My wife and I spent 3 weeks in China. We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and they have some of the best English speaking staff members. The rooms are very nice and the hotel is in a great location for visiting the big tourist attractions. My only negative comment is how expensive the food in the lobby bar is. I expected it to be a bit pricey compared to the restaurants we visited in the city but the price difference was ridiculous. Other then that a great place to stay while visiting the heart of Beijing.

Book this Hotel

We stayed here for 9 nights , and we wern't dissapointed in the slightest, the Hotel is Massive, with shops and escalators inside, two big towers and 4/5 resteraunts. If you can try and get a room in the A Tower and as high up as possible 9th floor at least and you get great views over Tianaman Square, which is about 10 mins walk from the Hotel. most of the main attractions are within walking distance, but be warned if you go in summer the heat is sometimes quite unbearable with temps in excess of 38 degrees, and even at night 28 degress, it's like a wall of heat that hits you as you walk out iof the air conditioned shops and hotels. A final word of caution, be prepared for the taxi drivers tjhat dont speeak any English and some cannot read even chinese, (it's not like a london cabbie knowing where every hotel is) some really struggle, however Taxi's are very very cheap a 1hr journey from the Airport to this Hotel costs about £12. In summery I would definatly stay here again

How do I say it

Everything should always be in context. As I am typing this the reconstruction noises on the floor above are keeping my wife awake from her afternoon nap. (we were not told this was happening). The 15th floor Capital Happy hour does not happen, except in the back corner of the 1st floor. The Italian restaurant is closed for renovations. The air-conditioning is not working and stays the same no matter what I do with the controls. If you ask me to recommend this I can not. The people are very nice and no one can say they do not try to please

Great Stay!

Overall this hotel was a great place to stay. The staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable of the area. My wife and I wanted to go to the Great Wall by ourselves and the staff knew just how to get there. When we first checked in there was a bit of a mix up as they gave us the wrong room, that was already occupied! Oops! But they quickly realized there mistake and even threw in a free fruit basket to make up for the confusion. The location is also amazing as it's only a 10 minute walk from Tienanmen Square and the Forbidden Palace. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to visit Beijing.
