CTS (HK) Grand Metropark Hotel Beijing4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Newly refurbished office building converted to a hotel on the third ring is pretty but missing some practical points. I read all its reviews before booking and the only thing accurate were the pictures. Staff tried very hard but missed out on finer things like serving your food with napkins, helping you with your luggage at the front door, general greetings. The room was well furnished - usual amenities, fluffy towels, safe, bedroom slippers and bath robes. However if you were a tall person the rain shower head would be way too low and watch out for the shower curtains that just can't get past its railing fixtures to completely enclose the wet area. Some of the staff did speak English so that was good and the hotel has many cafes etc for various business meetings or lunches. The occupancy must have been at an all time low as the dinner buffet was abandoned with little attention. Cooks were absent from the grill station and the Peking duck corner. My biggest peeve is that the hotel is not at all close to the station Sanyanqiao. I dragged luggage for quite a distance and with no escalators and helpful slopes in sight you're lugging your bags up and down stairs and into tunnels to cross the third ring road highway which is very very wide. Coming into the compound the Signages for the hotel were poor and all in all I walked about 25 mins from express train exit to hotel entrance - and I'm a fast walker! I chose to stay in Sanyanqiao area because the airport express stopped there, its access to Haidian qu where my clients were and access to line10 which also takes you downtown. The 3rd ring is also comparatively less congested. Yes comfort was high, but convenience was low. I was half hour delayed for my meetings which did not bode well. I doubt I will stay there again on another biz trip, maybe on a holiday!
South part of Beijing and close to underground. Lots of places to eat nearby. Bed comfortable but pillows not good. Breakfast good wth both western and Chinese cuisine. Coffee too strong for my taste.
Very clean and decent atmosphere. Staff did their best to be friendly and helpful, I felt, but unfortunately came across as a bit sullen. The room was fine, although the bathroom door would not shut/difficult to open, it seemed as though there was a bump in the floor. Bed was very comfortable and needed after tiring days!
Good rooms & nice ambience. Very firm beds. Good for those who don't like soft mattresses. The communication is a problem as most of them don't know English. Tasty & sumptuous breakfast. A very friendly staff but for the language.
We were lucky to get a clean room with fresh air on the 10th floor. A very big room and and make me feels the hotel is newly open for business. The room got all our basic needs for a night stay, they provide 2 pairs of "non-slip" slippers, my first encounter in our travel. We are infrequent travellers. The aircon works well but we prefer the fresh air outside and open the window, just a gap is sufficient for fresh air. We were lucky to get fresh air in Beijing on April 20, 2017!!! We were early for breakfast and were please to be allowed to sit at the restaurant looking at them dutifully present the duly cooked food. Most hotels do not allow us and cause a rush/crowd when they open the restaurant. I find the breakfast spread sufficient. Further down the road, walking distance away, there is a big shopping mall, Wanda good for shopping local goods.
This was our first hotel as part of a tour. A little far out- on the 3rd ring but wasn't really a problem as we were bussed everywhere. Close to the subway and a short walk to a mall for restaurants & shopping. The rooms were nice and clean and the buffet breakfast was good. Staff ok, limited English.
Beautiful Hotel, very grand. As we were on a guided tour with SNA & Travel Asia, this was the first of our accommodation. The room was nice, tripped on the carpet a few times as it hadn't been laid properly. If you like a pretty firm bed, this is the hotel for you. The food was nice, our breakfast was included. Dinner was a little expensive, approx. $60AUD for a buffet, not anything close by to eat at. There is a shopping mall approx. 10 minute walk from the hotel, it has a supermarket where you can buy bread, cheese, fruit, alcohol etc. Communication was really bad. we stayed here for 5 nights and on at least 4 occasions our room card wouldn't work in the lift or our room, was extremely hard to convey our problem to the front desk staff. Its still new, so hopefully things will improve.
Usually I love to stay somewhere that feels local and traditional. When I am in holiday even more so. For those who don't travel regularly to China it's important to realise the difference between a hotel aimed at international business travellers and those aimed at and most attractive to Chinese business travellers. This is the latter I am informed by Chinese colleagues. We found the hotel to feel unclean and all three of our bedrooms smelt far from fresh. In fact two of them we asked to change because the smell of stale smoke was so unpleasant. The food was okay but not what I would expect. And when there was an issue I couldn't find anyone who had good enough English to help. I wouldn't recommend this to international visitors. There are much nicer options nearby.
The hotel is in a very good location Guang an Wai Men. Sometimes it can be challenging for some taxi drivers . The cross-section with same name lies somewhere there . But the receptionist was able to give direction. Rooms are clean and service quite good. Like all the hotels in BJ now they are no smoking ... It can be pretty crowded in the Lobby during the rush hour since the hotel building also shares the lobby and other amenities with a office building. The TO-GO coffee shop is not 24 hours but have good coffee. Getting the taxi from the hotel can be challenging since the hotel was not able to provide the service of calling the TAXI during the RUSH HOUR. Overall it was a good stay since the room is cleaner ... .much better than the SCI-TECH where I stayed the previous time for somewhat the same price.
Central location near guang an ci wen wai within 5 mins. Along to the direction there is a bus stop can take number 5 to forbidden city alight at guang an men xi stop about 30 mins. Remember prepare to alight before one stop. Prepare mean please squeeze to the bus door to alight the station that u wan to alight if not you will get scolded by the driver if u request the driver to alight u off. Because there is very very crowded and all are senior citizen. The hotel staffs friendly as well as to the housekeeping staffs. But as controlled by China government, they centralized the aircond usage which mean they will off the air cond after 7pm for go green purposes.
