Hotel is not clean and noisy. Room is small. The only good is the price. I would rather pay a little more to stay is a better hotel.
Shakespeare’s Hamlet says that nothing’s either good or bad but thinking makes it so. To me, bad news that others might think good is that I received a telephone call offering a massage every night I stayed here, but I think the rest of what I’ll say about this place fits values quite common. The bad news is that the walls are so thin that you can hear anger in the hallways and romance in the next room, and that the mattress padding is so thin that you can feel the springs, all while you’re trying to sleep. The good news is that you can take a warm private shower and that housekeeping will make up your room every day. At the price, in China or India, you won’t get much better. And you can walk from your room to the Forbidden City. Free maps are behind the front desk. HITRT
The location is fine - if you can read a map or are comfortable asking for directions then there are a lot of places you can walk to - you can also walk to the subway stop if you don't want to walk a lot or use the bus. The room is okay for sleeping in, but if you have work to do and need a desk there might not be enough room for working. I would go back there if I'm in Beijing - it's a good enough place especially if you just need a place to sleep and are not spending your days in the hotel.
Our first night we were given a room that smells like a sewer, really bad.They weren't able to change rooms , second night was a little better. Will NEVER stay there again.
We request the nonsmoking room, but our room #2306 smelled like a smoking room. There was an astray inside our room. The room was very cold. We booked our room for 11 days, our bed sheets and pillow cases were not changed at all. The TV was old and certain channels were not cleared. The towels were old and dirty. When taking a shower, the water was either very cold or very hot. We did not have enough toilet tissue. However, the location was good. The front desk receptionists were very helpful and the price was good.
Been our first time in Asia and Beijing we were a little nerves and even thou staff hardly speaks any English they are very friendly and helpful, all you need is to be a little patient, you have all that you need Internet, TV, AA etc .... Now as this is has a great downtown... LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!! plus VALUE!! So I will be back :))))
my room had an internet access and other basic amenities with about additional $ 3 payment. if you plan to travel in Beijing a lot, not staying a lot of time at hotel, this place could be the one for you.
Overall, it's very good value for your money. Room was clean and with basic amenities, except there was no internet connection. Location is not bad. Metro is like a 10-15 minutes walk. Customer service was good. The staff were friendly to keep my luggage till late evening for my airport departure.
really nice of course the staff dont speeak english!! but i manage to find other tourist who speak chineese , to make it appen to me!! They been very kind and respectful and always willing to help even it they dont spwak english!!
