Reception staff were very nice and efficient. We get to the room.. here is where it all goes wrong. Room was filthy. A black pubic hair was found on one of the twin beds. More long black hairs found on one of the chairs under the desk. The room had been heavily scented to disguise cigarette smoke. My wife called downstairs to complain about this and the fact we booked a double room and not a twin. Nothing was done to change that. Whilst we prepared to go to bed we noticed that the smoke was getting worse and appeared to be coming from the ventilation from the bathroom.. My wife called down to reception again to complain and eventually we recieved a call from the manager..he offered kindly to change rooms. We moved to a room that had no smoke issues but still had the same dirty look and feel and had the added problem of noise from the main road. Another pubic hair found on the light fitting next to the bed... The bed linen was clean but a mascara stain was found on one of the pillow cases.. Overall i would not recommend this hotel in a million years however the staff became more helpful as the evening progressed. We thank them for their help but thats all that was good.
The hotel was comfortable with good air conditioning - important as it was pretty warm when we arrived. It is a good location although traffic like anywhere in Beijing is pretty bad. Breakfast is excellent, a good variety of food, well topped up buffet. It gets busy, and tables are hard to come by, depending on when the tours are going out but if you go early it is excellent. The local area is good and very safe, plenty restaurants and a few good bakeries. We had street food from a local vendor which was great. There is a Mcdonalds 5 min walk away if needed. Also a park around 15mins away. The metro is close though we didn't use it.
Breakfast was ok, nice freshly made omelette and good selection of local and international food.the first morning we ate in a different place, although the reception pointed us to the closed restaurant. Bedroom clean. Obviously there were guests who did not adhere to the non smoking rules but we smelt smoke every day, . We stayed 4 nights. Lobby staff speak little or no English, asked for a knife to cut an orange even with sign language the first girl said no then she said yes. The second looked on and also said no. Finally as I approached the bar the bar attendant opened the drawer and gave me the knife. On the day or departure we tried to check out saying we had nothing to pay. Betty the receptionist was very rude and when we explained that we needed our key back to pick up the hand luggage she threw the key at us. Housekeeping staff on the corridor were friendly
Stayed here for 3 nights a couple of weeks ago. By western standards its a mid range hotel in need of a good clean. Our room consisted of 2 beds, both rock hard but this is how the chinese like their beds and as they are the ones this hotel is catering to its to be expected.complimentary 2 bottles of water were left every day and a mini bar fridge in room. If you want room service you must go down to reception first to pay. Room had a bath with shower overhead. Had liquid dispensers for soaps but empty, obviously preferred you to use i one bar of soap or small gel tube.Hairdryer in room worked. Only CNN on loop was all you could get on tv, the rest is Chinese but not here to watch tv. Found breakfast an okay mix of chinese and western fare. Fresh fruit, juices, youghurt cereals, boiled eggs etc was fine for start of your day.We found the seat covers and carpets to be in desperate need of a good clean or throw out. Hotel had in house souvenir shop, very expensive, massages available. Staff spoken little to none in english so relied on a guide. Across the road there are numerous shops to buy extra water, dont buy large flagons , thet look like water but have high alcohol content. Some western items ie. Icecreams etc can be bought. Hotel is home of Peking Opera which had a great feedback but we were unable to go so only word of mouth. Walking distance to nearby theatre, show fantastic for acrobatics,gymnastics etc, book a vip seat unless you want to have a chinese neighbour constantly talking or spitting on the floor ( its the chinese way) The actual hotel is wheelchair friendly but nothing outside is.In a relatively good area and central.

Mid range hotel with mid range standards breakfast satisfactory reception satisfactory baggage storage satisfactory bed satisfactory bathroom significantly shabby. Unclean particularly around bath and shower area mildew fills the grout area on the tiles and bath will not drain obviously clogged with human refuse. Needs a good thorough scrub. Very disappointing. Detracts from the hotel's good points.
when you site see all day in the horrendous heat this rooms was quiet, clean and comfortable to come back too. when I called down to say my blow dryer didn't work they sent in a replacement immediately. friendly service and kind people.
Recently spent 4 nights at the hotel. Standard reception with staff understanding our needs. Not modern as western standards but certainly rooms were comfortable and clean. Complimentary water supplied. It was easy to book trips via the concierge and maps are for sale. Breakfast catered for all tastes. Hotel is home to the Peking opera Within a short walk to the metro system and the right side of town for West Beijing Station. Make plenty of allowance for traffic. Would go back
I booked a 3-star hotel through a travel agency specifically for the Great Wall Marathon. This was their pick which suited me fine. Check-in was not too difficult for me since I only had to show my marathon documents. However, I did notice not too many employees spoke English much. The lobby had an ATM and money exchange machine. My friend and I used both and they worked fine. The place is a little dated but the room was clean and comfortable. Cleaning staff came in every morning to tidy up and replace anything needed. There is a small theater for anyone interested in Peking Opera and a restaurant with plenty of food choices, Chinese and other. Within a short walking distance there is a metro station. Perhaps it's a good idea to acquire a map before visiting as I didn't see any maps for sale anywhere really, and Beijing is quite big. There are shops and many places to eat if you walk and are the exploring type. Overall, this place was good. One can't be too picky if not booking at the JW Marriot. Besides, I'm sure it is a lot better than the Super 8 Motel I saw around the corner.
This hotel probably has better years behind it. It seems to be well supported by Tour Groups, but even then, finding someone who can understand and speak English was difficult...and nobody rushes to welcome or help you. The room was OK, but hairs in the sink and old soap stains in the soap dish in the bathroom a bit off- putting. The room showed signs of wear and tear and was just basic in every way. Breakfast was very limited unless you were local...a very basic selection of non Chinese food items, and only round tables seating eight to ten people available. Any chance of a quiet corner table for two non existent. Reasonably located within walking distance of major central attractions.
Passing by Beijing 3 nights in Jianguo hotel quite appreciated. Hotel in the city center with a metro very close ans close too to Tienamen place adding possibility f touristic view even with short free timeing. Many restaurant close by in the street around, a lot of shopping and shopping mall. A surprise when coming from western country, staff never ask or even accept tips even if always very agreable and helpful. Makes it easier for people not sure of what and to who to give tips🙂
