ibis Beijing Sanyuan3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The room got poor internet connections but they have no way to improve. It is not good to take a walk near there since lots of big bridges are crossing. You can only take subway or taxi, otherwise only get a few shops and restaurants in 15 minutes walk. But very near to the airport so it is good for people who needs good access the airport.
Rooms are fine but there is continuous smell of non veg in reception, lift which leads to headache. My veg eating friend Had terrible time. For non veg eaters this should be fine. Hotel should also accept US dollars for payment.
The Ibis Sanyuan is just next to Sanyuanqiao which is great if you arrive from the airport. Overall, I thought that it was not fully worth the price I paid (54 Euros per night; breakfast not included). The front desk employees should be trained well - they were not helpful, or made me feel welcome.
Great choice for budget travel. We booked two rooms through Hotels.com and got fantastic prices for it. Easy to access from the Airport Express train and subway- around the corner from the station exit. A convince store is attached to the lobby. The rooms are small but great for short stays and if you are spending little time in the room. We stayed for two nights total, two weeks apart (the day we arrived and night before departure). We saw them replacing the mattresses on the second stay and our mattress was much nicer that night than the first one. Bathrooms have toilets (as opposed to "squatters") and stall-showers (no tub). Located very close to a Starbucks, a 7-Eleven, and a mall with Restaurants,
+ Rooms were cleaned well, and we got complimentary water bottles each day. Good location right next to an important subway station. Good size of the room, with large beds. - Staff seemed generally rude and uninterested in helping out. The breakfast was only Chinese food and was over-priced in my opinion for the small selection. The elevators and reception area was worn down and not very cozy/nice. Over all felt like a lower standard than the European Ibis hotels I've stayed at before. Would probably find a better hotel next time I vist Beijing. If you're used to the good service and nice atmosphere of European Ibis, I wouldn't recommend this hotel (however the price was fairly good).
Staff have little to no english. Constantly having to ask for tea, toilet paper, water which should be restocked. Two bottles of water for a room booked for three. No coffee supplied. Buffett breakfast for asians not westerns, very creasy food and service terrible. Only positive close to subway. I have stayed at a few ibis and this was disappointing.
This hotel is located right off the Airport Express and subway station. I took the Airport Express for 25RMB and about 20minutes. Very convenient. It is also next to a shopping mall where there are many restaurants and a food court. Good selection of Asian and Chinese food. The room is sparse and a bit worn out. On the days I stayed, Sep 23-24, Beijing hit 28C and humid with moderate pollution. Yet the hotel turned off the A/C and only allowed fan to be run. When inquired at the front desk, they asked me to open the small window. It really does not help the circulation. Besides, even though I am on the 11th floor, the noise from the constant car horns from the street is annoying to say the least. They do accept foreign credit cards, which is a plus for a budget hotel.
I had a single day between flights and so only stayed one night. As a pro the location was exactly what I wanted - very easy access to the Airport but also the City centre by metro. Ideal for a single day and night stopover where you want to get into town but also the airport without running the risk of being stuck in traffic. For the room I expected the normal Accor group standard - Ibis are almost identical everywhere. Here the room was OK - looked and felt like almost every other Ibis in the world (Including the bed and linen). No noise issues and was clean. Some English language TV. Free wifi with slow but OK speed. Had a good nights sleep - which is the most important thing. However there were a few issues I would not have expected from an Accor / Ibis hotel. Nothing really bad, but not as good as I expect from Accor in Europe. For example - don't expect a very rapid checkout - Unlike Europe (where you also pay on arrival) you cannot simply hand your key back when you leave. Instead you are made to form a slightly chaotic queue to formally check out at the two desks actually working. Also maintenance was not quite as good as the UK or France. In the morning found that the bathroom 'pod' leaked water into the bedroom - and into my bag which was on the floor the other side of the bathroom wall. Things go wrong every so often in any hotel but here, when you looked, the floor was clearly water damaged and the wall watermarked - so this had been going on for a while and so should have been fixed before a jet lagged traveler put their bag in the wrong place. Overall - despite a few grumbles I would stay again. The location is very good if you want someone between the airport and centre; the room certainly not bad and not expensive. Just don't expect exactly the same standards as Europe.
Stayed in hotel last May for 9 days. It would have been better if a western breakfast had been provided. The room was clean and bathroom was equally clean and very pleasant. The hanging space for our clothes was far too small, but we were able to get by. The reception staff did not speak English and used a mobile app to translate but this was not very unsuccessful. The hotel seemed to cater for Chinese men. The shop was useful. Also a minibar would have been nice. Overall, for the money it was good.
Traveling solo, stayed for one night before flying out the next day. Pros The room is clean (just don't look at the corridors, lobby furniture or carpet they are filthy. Mini mart on level 1. caution see cons . Tv does have a couple of English channels you just have to hunt for them. No Chanel guide is provided. Cons Rock hard bed which gave me back ache Clean but smelly bath room Rooms are not sound proofed so you are treated to traffic noise, noise of other guests and in my case the noise of the lift at all hours needless to say I did not sleep well. Wifi is slower than dial up no matter where you are in the building. It was actually worse in the lobby. All you can eat breakfast is Chinese, no continental breakfast, which no one bothered to tell me. If that's what you want save your money. Mini mart on level one does offer a selection of snacks, drinks and personal items. However I would avoid any meat products. Why? because when I checked in at 23:00 they were left on the floor to defrost. Food poisoning anyone?! Language barrier is an issue which I did not expect when staying in an ibis. Very disappointing as is the fact that the staff don't appear to have heard of customer service skills, no smile and rude. Ps to the staff. stop playing with your cellphone when you are supposed to be working and serving guests. Conclusion Ok for one night if you don't mind roughing it a little and probably not getting a good nights sleep. However there are Chinese hotels cheaper than ibis that provide what they are offering. If you're happy with what they are offering that is. I for one will not be staying here ever again.
