No AC in the room and no possibility to get it working Breakfast is below average and not aligned to what some customers said Room is too dark (lights no powerful enough) Bathroom is too small and look like dirty or too old, not a pleasure to get in.
Definitely recommend Penta. They let us check in early, had good facilities within the common areas of the hotel and the room we were in was ideal. The only downfall was the aircon was not cool enough so the room heated up during the evening! Well worth the money. Only a couple of seconds from food, mall and the subway.
Very well located at the heart of the city. Many food options available nearby. The room is neat and tidy. However, aircon can be a little noisy affecting the quality of rest. There was a need for room switch informed by the crew. However, this wasn't conveyed earlier resulting in a rush to pack up the luggage to facilitate the switch. We were informed the switch was to allow regular maintenance. If this was the case, I'm sure they can inform us of the switch much earlier to reduce the inconvenience.
We stayed at the hotel from April 15 to April 17. Here are the pros: Very close to subway (1 block). 2-3 stops to Tiananmen square, Wangfujing and Temple of Heaven. Restaurants, shopping center and local stores around the hotel. Kids had fun with the pool table. Breakfast was alright. Free basic wifi (Good to check mail). Cons: air conditioner was not on, front desk mentioned to us that ac is not turned on until summer. They were able to open the windows which made us comfortable during our stay. Not sure what it will feel like when the weather starts getting warmer. Our rooms were dated and could use an update. Getting to the hotel via taxi from the bullet train was a nightmare. None of the taxi drivers spoke a word of English. I try showing them the name and address but they couldn't read it. We had a party of 8 in 2 separated cabs. My wife was smart enough to call the hotel and have them speak to the driver. I on the hand though I was smart and tried to show the driver the hotel on the waze app. He dropped us off no where near the hotel. We ended up getting another cab. I gave in and called my wife which she was able to translate the hotel to driver. After 20 min later and 20 rmb more, we made it. I am probably not the first to get lost. Ironically during checkin, I saw in the front desk a card with the name and address with a map in Chinese and English. Not sure why they don't post it on their website. I attached it to my review hopefully it will help others.
We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights whilst in Beijing. The hotel is close to a subway station which was very handy. It also adjoins a shopping centre which has some nice restaurants. The hotel appears to be in a good location, within walking distance to a few attractions however the city map we were given didn't appear to be very accurate and hard to read. The air conditioning in the room didn't work as others have mentioned and also the bathroom had a really bad smell. For the price paid this was a good value hotel.
I choose the title because the overall facilities of the hotel are really good and modern. However, the toilets seems to be a bus station public toilet. Charging wifi for watch video of other features is a bit strange if you compare with the hotel other competitors that don't have the same policy in China.
The location is good. It is at the crossover point of line 2 and line 5. And it is near a big department store. There is a pool table in the lobby. But something in the room seems like old. 這個飯店地點很好，方便！早餐也還可以，房間稱不上豪華舒適，還算可以，走過走廊可以聽到房門裡的聲音，但隔壁不吵所以不知道隔音效果如何，整體而言還可以推薦！大廳裡的bar感覺不錯。
We stayed here 2 night. The location was convenient for our tours and close to restaurants and markets. The daily breakfast was excellent. Our first night, we checked into our hotel room and it smelled of a chain smoker. We could barely breath for it was supposed to be non-smoking. We complained to guest relations and they immediately gave us another room. It was spacious. There was an ATM right across the street. The only negative I can say is the "free" internet was incredibly slow. It was barely usable.
A good hotel with a superb location. Located right above a shopping mall which opens til 10pm. Walkable distance to Many tourist spots. Lovely and helpful staff. No hotels could beat the price and the cleanliness and location that penta Beijing offers!
This hotel is in a great location. The rooms a nice. It has free Wi-Fi, very important. the free breakfast in the morning is delicious. There is a noddle place in the hotel right as you come through the front door which is cheap and delicious. There is a huge mall right around the corner from the hotel. Mc D's, Kentucky Fried Chicken if you miss your American food. A block away from the train. Loved it!
