Good place to stay

The hotel is really close to the subway, just a few steps away. The bed is a bit hard. The coffee is excellent.

Wish I stayed longer

I chose this hotel due to its location to Beijing Train Station. When I arrived I was able to check in quickly and get to my room with no hassles. The room was clean and neat. My only complaint was that the AC did not seem to work right since I prefer a cooler room at night. Right outside the hotel is the entrance to the Line 2 subway system, which for about .33 cents gets you around the city with a minimum of effort. There is a large shopping center nearby with numerous places to eat for any kind of cuisine desired. In all, I would stay at this hotel again if able.

A very good location

A nice, clean hotel with English speaking staff located about a15 minute walk from Tiananmen Square. Chongwenmen line 2 metro station is outside the entrance. This line connects with the airport express train making it easy to access from the airport. Also the airport express bus terminates close to the hotel. The rooms have minibar though very expensive and lots of complimentary toiletries. There is a restaurant and shop on site. Rooms are comfortable and wifi is available as are computers in the reception area. International direct dialing is available from room telephones for a very reasonable charge. The hotel can also arrange any sightseeing tours if required.

Check in upleasant

I couldn't believe how rude the front desk agent was. I had issues checking in. The agent was extremely rude and pretty much dismissed me and had moved on to the next guest without resolving mine. I never did get to check into my room - no help! I saw my friend's room and found it bit outdated, but clean. However, due to the location, this is the best bet as the price is great. Don't expect smiles or customer service. Totally a no frills hotel.

Good for a cheap clean stay near subway and attractions

Im a visiting student from the USA on a budget and this hotel was perfect. Clean, good helpful staff, close to forbidden city and temple of heaven as well as subway that can get you anywhere else. Exceeded expectations. Bed was hard but has been everywhere I've been in china so far.

Shed some light on the situation

Overall, I liked this hotel a lot. The location is perfect, It is located 20m away from a metro station and 20 minute walk from the main shopping street. They let us check in early as our flight arrived 6hrs before check-in time. The only major problem that we (the wife) had with this hotel was that our room had no window and we (the wife) were left perplexed by this. The cleaning staff were extremely helpful. I had ripped a 10RMB note and the shops would not accept it. Our helpful cleaner sellotaped it back together. THANKS!!!

Good Hotel, Perfect Location

Better-than-average for Novotel brand. The subway station for two lines (#2 and #5) literally right outside the front door. Two huge shopping malls one block away, and only about 20 minute walk (or one stop) to T-Square. Two stops to Hongqiao Pearl Market. Several restaurants inside the hotel. Staff was friendly and helpful Full-service concierge plus separate transportation desk.

Great value

Great location, near many main tourist attractions and convenient location next to subway. Good service, English speaking staff, and good value for price paid. Tour agencies that the concierge partners with are overly expensive but that's probably not entirely within the hotel's control.

Taxi drivers in Beijing are well-known for trying to rip off tourists. If you take the subway, which is conveniently located next to the hotel, you avoid all of that.

A solid hotel that I'd use again

It can be difficult to find a good hotel when traveling in China. Local budget hotels, while extremely cheap, will usually have issues with plumbing and service. High to mid end chains can be inconsistent and/or pricey. After my stay, I'd say that the Novotel sits safely in between the two extremes. The price is very affordable, and the quality and cleanliness are on point. The Novotel is a safe bet for business travel or vacationers who don't want to sacrifice comfort for cost. It's not going to blow your mind, but if you need to spend a week in Beijing like I did, it will do you right without costing a billion dollars. The location is perhaps the only weak spot. There is a subway line right outside the door which is great. However, there is little of interest within walking distance. Though, it is near some shopping malls if that's your thing. Aside from that, for tourists, it's about a 20 RMB ($3) cab fare to Nanlouguxiang and even closer to Tian'an Men.

Don't be afraid of the subway right next the hotel. Cabs are cheap, but the never ending traffic in Beijing can be a downer.
