Recent guest reviews
Had an 8th floor twin room with large bathroom including walk in shower with semi transparent wall. Breakfast was the most western of the trip, however there was still a mixture of choices. It was a good location as a base for two nights for sight seeing in Beijing at the end of a group visit (6 days walking the Great Wall of China). In October the heating was on (this is not always the case).
Staying here several nights while on business I found the rooms to be fine. Service at the front desk was efficient. The on site restaurant was fine in the morning but at night it was mostly empty and the service varying between surly and sloppy. Menu options were pretty limited with no help if your mandarin wasn’t up to par. Getting to the hotel was tough for taxis due to its odd location off an ally. Walking through that at night to local restaurants was a bit sketchy. It isn’t very pricey but I suspect there may be better options in the area. If not, it is just ok for foreigners.
This is a nice hotel. The breakfast was quite chinese, and bit different from european menu.However, this should not be a surprise or a problem. This is china after all. :) Terrace is nice with the lake and all. Rooms are cleaned as promised and all is ok. There is a mall nearby (just next building) with about 10 restaurants, 5 sports stores (adidas, anta, li-ning) numerous shoe shops, a large supermarket, smartphoneshop, teastore etc. Food was nice at restaurants and few had english menu available. There is also macdonalds.
From 8/4 to 8/8 I have stayed there for four nights. It is close to subway station Beituchen which run line 8 and 10. There is a shopping mall nearby which under renovation, but a grocery supermarket in second floor is still running and you can get almost every thing you need. The room is clean and quiet and breakfast buffet has a lot of choices. The staff there is friendly and helpful.
The hotel is located close to the Olympic Park, which is a pleasant place to walk in the evening as many activities can be seen like dancers in the street or group exercise classes. The subway is also close. Rooms are large and functional. We had no problems with anything. The breakfast was good, taken in the gardens by a pretty lake.
The rooms were clean and the hotel is right next to a Subway line. Otherwise, it's an older, somewhat odd building. We took the subway train from the airport to the subway station and had a hard time finding the entrance to the hotel from the station - there is not a lot of signage in the area to point you in the right direction. There is a giant mall next to the hotel with some good restaurants, especially a dumpling restaurant we liked a lot. The breakfasts at the hotel were okay. Staff was friendly but not super knowledgeable about tourism or restaurants nearby. We struggled with the language barrier a bit as not many of the staff spoke English. But they did try, and they were very friendly.
Have stayed here three times. The rooms are large and clean and the staff is friendly. The location is right on the number 10 subway and the olympic park is walking distance. There is a restaurant on the first floor however, I have not tried it. There are typically breakfast vendors outside.
The hotel rooms are very good and well equipped. Difficult to communicate as most hotel staff knows only chinese language. The food served in the breakfast is mostly chinese with no varities from other cuisines. The currency exchanging machine is out of service.
Hotel are 5 -7 mins from Subway and 15 mins walk to Olympic Stadium. Room are clean and staff are friendly as well. Beside hotel have one mall that food street and the food are worth try out with reasonable price.Overall satisfied with the stayed.
This is far far to Chinese style to be a good hotel for Westerners. Especially is the breakfast terrible. Room are great. I really do not know why Holiday inn do not want these hotels have a more international image.
