I stayed there for many times since 2007. I think it is a fairly good hotel in BDA. It is especially convenient for business travel. The breakfast was good and the room is OK. Its restaurant was a little expensive but has really good food.
Our family of 4 spent 4 nights at this hotel. Upon check in, it was clear that the service would be poor when we could not communicate in English and the staff was less than hospitable. Each of the 4 nights were very uncomfortable when trying to sleep. In the middle of the night, we would get up very warm, noticing that the a/c went from 25 degrees c to 30 degrees c. We tried to adjust the thermostat and complained to the hotel staff with no success. The beds were extra, extra firm. The carpet was very dirty. Daily breakfast buffet was included. The wait and kitchen staff were not friendly or helpful. Most of the food tasted like it was leftover from the day prior...dry and rubbery. The lobby was nice.
The reception staff could be friendlier and speak more English. This is a great choice in the BDA. Rooms are large, clean and comfortable. Breakfast is included and it is quite good. My only complain wa the Wifi. It is just bad and keeps dropping. Otherwise very recommended.
We stayed at this hotel for 7 nights during a tour last week we were very unhappy with the service and room supplied as a double room was booked and we were given 2 singles this was rectified quickly although not for many on our tour. The water was cold for showers and it took days to try and sort out the problem mainly due to language issues when the engineer finally arrived he more or less indicated the water was ok and left quickly, the water finally improved 4 days later when a conference booked into hotel the same as the breakfast it was very basic for the first 4 days. we were unable to use the pool unless we had a swimming certificate and a swimming cap it was really strange and also disappointing. This hotel is not 5 star although the lobby area is very nice, the bowling alley was not in operation and the little shop had next to nothing in it and it is along way to any shops as hotel is in an isolated part of the city, we could not recommend this hotel due to our experience there,
Very pleasant luxury hotel far away from anywhere touristy. There is nothing to see, so you better have a reason to come here. The hotel itself is quite good, although a few things are not great. Internet speed was ridiculously slow during peak hours and the gym is a sad affair. Staff is friendly and helpful, food is very good, rooms are splendid.
First of all, this hotel is located in the Business Development Area of Beijing, about 45 minutes from the city without traffic in the industrial area, so it is a business hotel, not a tourist hotel. There is absolutely nothing in the area other than factories. That said, this is a local hotel with very high Western standards, which makes it an ideal business hotel at a bargain. I would classify it as a Western 4-star hotel. The staff is excellent and they all speak English, the rooms are modern and clean, there are 3 restaurants with excellent food and the inclusive breakfast buffet is quite good. Wifi is included. The price is a fraction of what you pay in places like the Hilton, and the quality is equal or superior.
A family with a small child, we stayed here for several weeks after our arrival to Beijing. Well, this is no five star hotel even though they have a plaque in the lobby that says so. Just like a lot of things in China, Jinjiang Fyuan is a fake five star hotel. They are sooo not up to the international 5-star level. THE POSITIVES *** clean. They come to clean the room twice a day unless you turn them away. Cleaning staff are constantly sweeping the marble floors in the lobby, and cleaning other public areas. *** the pool is nice, large and good for lap swimming. No kids under 18 though. Do not expect compliance with the Western standards in the showers and changing rooms also :) THE NEGATIVES *** smoking, smoking, more smoking. People smoke in the lobby right under the "NO SMOKING" sign. Guests smoke on the non-smoking floors which are clearly designated as non-smoking. Visitors smoke in the bar area where smoking is allowed, but the bar area is adjacent to the non-smoking breakfast area without any wall or a room divider, so you can figure out the rest. And the management does absolutely NOTHING to enforce their own partial no-smoking policies. Welcome to China. *** ignorance of the "Do not disturb" sign on the door. Sometimes they ignored the sign to either ask to clean the room in the afternoon, or for room service. I think that adherence to the "Do not disturb" sign is the most basic rule that hotels have to respect. This hotel still needs to learn this. ** the breakfast is bland with almost no variety of dishes. *** the hotel's adjacent convention center business is designed so that whenever there is a convention going on, the convention's visitors literally take over the hotel. There are crowded welcome booths with lines of people in the hotel lobby, visitors smoke in the lobby in throngs, all parking spots are occupied, the hotel's restaurants are booked. In another words, the management's preference for the convention business over the hospitality business becomes very obvious. If you are here for a 2-3 days business trip to the Beijing Econ. Development Area, you may not even notice this, but for someone who stays longer this becomes a hassle. A good example would be some kind of a job fair they hosted in 2013. Oh my. The lines of potential job seekers waiting to get in stretched from the convention center door, around the parking lot, and into the street, well over a few hundred meters. They had to direct people's traffic as well as the vehicle traffic to get in and out of the parking lot. I guess everyone needs a job in China, eh. If I were to stay in Beijing again, I would choose a different, 100% non-smoking hotel with Western management, wherever it may be.
Stayed for one and one night only as rooms were hot. They stop serving food by nine that we arrived from hotel at 9:15pm. Bed was hard. Breakfast was so average. Had to make my own gin and tonic. Only stay here if you really must.
It is an enormous hotel with adjoining Olympic size swimming pool situated in the South-East part of the city. There is an large staff at your service and they really try to help when requested. The rooms are large and with an luxurious en-suite bathroom. The furniture is beautiful and the lightning system is a complicated affair which can be confusing. The lights can be somewhat cold and glaring as it is all dispensed by low-energy lamps having a sepulchral color. The free WiFi was not working well, frequently disconnecting. Access to the pool is free, but is obviously for professional athletes or sportsman wanting to take laps. Breakfast is a real pleasure with the buffet and on order cooking varied and delicious. Parking is not an issue as lots of space are available. In winter, the hotel is well heated, what is not always the case in 5 stars hotels in China.
This hotel is very bright and nicely decorated throughout. I enjoyed my 3 night stay in Beijing. However, there are a few areas of improvement. The staff do not speak English adequately to communicate with guests, which is an issue considering this hotel is 4 stars and located in a business district. Secondly, the rooms do not have wifi and are only equipped with a plug in cable for internet connection, which is definitely outdated in the age of smart phones & tablets! The room we stayed in was a double twin room, which was quite large and well maintained. There is a complimentary gym and pool. The gym is very small and the weight room only has about 4 machines and is a bit claustrophobic with no windows, but overall is adequate for a few nights stay. The breakfast buffet was quite a pleasant surprise, with an extensive selection of both hot & cold dishes. I believe they served at least 3 different soups every morning, and some interesting dishes such as steamed pumpkin, seaweed salad, and stuff I've never seen at other hotels. Not that I've ever been to China before! I was here with a tour group so I'm not sure how good the location of this hotel is, but I do hear it is a bit far off from main attractions. Overall good value!
