Advertised as a 5 star it's not really European 5 star. Firstly there is no bar. It has signposts to a bar but don't be mislead it doesn't exist. That's said you can get a drink in the atrium which is very pleasant. Rooms all smelt of smoke despite no smoking policy but that's probably fairly common still. The air purifiers did the trick after a week. Room was fine, large with decent bathroom and comfy bed. Quite adequate for a business trip and ok for the cost. It's no plaza though.
When you arrive you will be impressed. Shiny marble everywhere. More plants than most garden centres. An atrium with glass lifts gliding quietly up and down. A little Chinese lady constantly sweeping unseen dust from the floors. A comfortable seating area and entire row of check in clerks who all look busy! Make the most of that feeling because almost every other aspect of the hotel could be improved. At the check-in not one of the clerks could speak English. Not a big deal, but if you are going make your hotel view-able and bookable on English speaking websites... The check-in was relatively easy as we were able to point at various pages we had printed about our booking. The room was acceptable, not perfect, but satisfactory. By our third day I was beginning to notice dirty bits behind the door that were clearly never cleaned. The bathroom was nice, but never felt completely clean. The water in the sink was never hot, but not cold enough to complain. The bathroom was ventilated but not quite enough to make it smell fresh. The beds were fine, but not sumptuous. There is an upmarket restaurant attached to the hotel. Very expensive but looked very nice - although I am not sure if Sea Cucumbers are edible. There is also a bar - but I did not see anyone in it the whole time we were there. The buffet restaurant had a good selection of Chinese food for breakfast, but very little in the way of Western cuisine. Lots of staff that do not appear to do much. Food, drinks and crockery would often run out during breakfast, but went unnoticed by the staff. I am fairly laid back about this sort of thing - and very English when it comes to complaining! But even I was forced to say something when the only thing available for coffee was a soup bowl. :) If you have not been to China before then food may be an issue. Restaurant menus are full of dishes that you will not recognise even with a translation! If I had been travelling alone I would have been braver, but my children are not so adventurous. Fortunately, there is a McDonalds, a KFC and a Pizza Hut all within easy walking distance. Interestingly they all had additional items on their menus to appeal to local tastes. The lack of understanding of English in Beijing initially surprised me - even at the Forbidden City we only found one person that spoke some English - but it is quite clear that domestic tourism will always be far greater than tourists from around globe. On this holiday we also visited Hong Kong, Macau and Guangzhou (Southern China) where a much larger number of people spoke English. On our second day we discovered a member of the reception staff that spoke some English. Combined with the translator on my phone this made a huge difference to us. We were able to get some help and advice - even if it was just to find out where the McDonalds was! This website (and others) make a big fuss about the fact that the hotel has a pool. It was one of the reasons we booked this hotel. Well, actually it doesn't. There is a pool and gym on site, but it is not owned by the hotel. If you want to swim it will cost you around £10 GBP per person, per swim. As a family, we often take advantage of hotels pools, with a short swim in the morning and a leisurely one in the late afternoon. The pool itself is not very big (and again it did not feel 100% clean), the water is freezing and you WILL get shouted at for not wearing a swimming hat! £10 may not sound a lot - but when you consider that a taxi ride to the hotel from the other side of Beijing in the rush hour cost less than £10. Needless to say we only swam once! Overall, I liked the hotel, but felt they needed some guidance on how to run a hotel and what customers expect. I have rated it Average which is possibly a bit harsh, but I do not believe it deserves the next rating up which is very good. This could be a really nice hotel, with a bit more effort and some attention to detail.
It's overall comfortable but certainly not a five star hotel. The standard room we got was pretty big but had a meldew smell. Breakfast is okay at best. While there are plenty of Chinese food options (not a lot western options), the taste and quality of the food aren't that great at all.
Jingyi Hotel is nicely fitted out, and I haven't had any of the service problems that others report. However, you really should adjust your expectations if you expect "luxury Chinese hotel" to be impeccable opulence; it isn't. The atrium lobby, elevators, and hallways are very nice and convey a fairly luxurious impression, and I had a lovely, spacious room on the back of the hotel with a picture-window bathroom viewing into the bedroom (with electrically lowerable shades). At the same time, the desktop veneer was badly chipped and badly repaired, the pretty stone and glass-framed shower stall had a moldy drain gutter, and I never quite get used to the need at the finest hotels to be careful about getting any non-potable shower and faucet water into my mouth.
We'd booked this initially for a further 6 nights but cancelled. We requested an early booking in following an early morning arrival after an 18 hour journey,On arrival at 3.30am we were told that our rooms weren't available until 6.30am which meant that we had to wait in the lobby for three hours with all our luggage and two children, they eventually brought us some water. Cancelled the remaining dates on principle. Nice rooms, a bit dated, not used to foreign tourists.
I stayed Delux suite room for 4 nights with my mom. First impression is HUGE! There're big confortable queen size bed,2 bathrooms, shower room, and living room with comfortable bed. Nice hotel to relax well! Closest Subway station is 10mins walk from the hotel, there's small convenience store, supermarket and restaurants around! I recommend this place. Though, hotel itself is quite old, air condition is dusty, but acceptable. The front let us wait like 10mins for both check in and out. Less efficiency it seems, but their attitude were okay. To sum up, nice hotel to explore Beijing!
we were booked this Hotel as a package & from the moment we arrived we were disappointed , no one at check in spoke English & it was tricky to say the least. It didn't get any better, as we found one lady who spoke English but she really wasn't interested in helping us. They had no tourist information we could take , so basically we were left to our own devices in a foreign country where hardly anyone speaks English at all & we had no Chinese other than hello & thank you. It was also miles away from anywhere, so as previously mentioned unless you need to be in this area , then don't stay at this hotel.
I'd rate this hotel 3.5 star hotel. It looks a lot like Embassy Suites from inside. Interior looks bit old, and clean. Staff are polite and helpful, they speak limited English, so you will have to keep your question basic and short, not too long. Breakfast has many varieties, for lunch and dinner, order from menu, chef there cook decent food. Location is convenient, right on north part of third loop, not far from center of city, very close to major universities.
I'm sure is easier to claim the five stars then making a good service worth it, but this is far far form five stars! Is a nice try but please don't let yourself misled this is a low 3 star. Carpets dirty, no restaurant open during lunch time 14.15 all closed. Room is acceptable in look and design but clean or well organized I don't think so... Staff helpful but no English ... I could go on but I stop here and let up to others as well to have a saying, for sure I wouldn't like to come back here.
It is a hotel that seems nicer than it is. It is clearly trying to be a luxury hotel and whilst the rooms are spacious and well-equipped upon closer inspection they don't quite live up to expectations. The carpet and bathroom aren't properly clean, there are chips and chunks out of the bedhead and the room is generally not maintained to the standards of the type of hotel they are trying to be. The staff speak little English and communicating is difficult. In the room, there are many items you'd expect in a luxury hotel (bathrobes, pillow menu, so on) but due to the poor English skills some of these things, like ordering a pillow for example, are near impossible. To their credit, they seemed to have addressed a couple of the previous reviews with respect to the hard beds, as they now have memory foam mattresses which are very comfortable.
