The front of the hotel is beautiful... but that's where it ends. We had a group of 9 and 5 rooms. As soon as you walk on there is a strong smell covering up something... that something was quickly identified as mold. All 5 rooms were molded and they had burnt incense and put sachets over the AC vents to hide the smells. The sachets were molded as well. There were also what could have been bed bugs in the beds. We chose not to stay there based on the conditions. It was very gross.
Do not be fooled by the photos. They will give you a horrible room if you do not pay more. This is an old hotel and is as grand as it looks in the photos. The lobby needs work as the seating area has old couches that you can literally sink into. This hotel is old and you have to make sure that you see the room before you check in, or you will get a bad room. Stains on the walls, a horrible green counter color with a box TV from 1998, the bath room was moldy and the hallway alone smelled like old food. We were moved to a better room after making a complaint. The location is nice. There is a great soup place if you make a left on the side street and another left on the main road. It's not far and is ran by a lovely lady who will correct you if you try to put the wrong things in the soup. LOL. Decent stay. The staff was friendly and professional. They were very accommodating and understanding of our requirements as guests. Pay more for a better room to avoid confusion, look at the room before you check in.
A home away from home. With Tourico Vacations I was finally able to go on a vacation at luxurious hotel "The Travelers Inn Huaqiao" in heart of Beijing, China. This hotel allows visitors to enjoy their stay due to the fact that it is located near the famous Wangfujing Street, Llama Temple and the always exciting Sanltun nightlife area. Guestrooms are tastefully furnished (self-contained) and daily maintained. The hotel always up-to-date with the most basic amenities, including internet access; an open gym and spa. This hotel's restaurants offer both Western and Chinese cuisine, including a breakfast buffet to help guests to start off the day well. A lobby bar is also open to serve any beverage while guests relax.
We stayed here for a week from 16/10/2016 to 23/10/2016. Cheap hotel, and no frills. Not the cleanest hotel, and I'm fairly sure that all the bites on my arm and my partner's arm was from bed bugs. We had fun trying to guess how the housecleaning worked - they don't seem to change your mugs at all whilst there, and we were lucky when they re-stocked our toilet roll. Breakfast wasn't great, but at least it's provided. It was what we were expecting, basic and cheap. It was close to our friends who live in Beijing, which was important for us, and on a fabulous Hutong. Location wise, we couldn't fault the hotel.
Truly an awful hotel. Filthy, with dirty walls and wet carpet in the room. Rooms are "cleaned" with no vacuum or cleaning solution, just a wet rag. My room had a used tea cup with someone else's tea still in it. When I asked for a new one, the maid took it to my bathroom sink and rinsed it out and handed it back to me. I brought my own sheets- the ones on the bed were full of holes.
We stayed there for 3 nights. Location wise is nice. 10 mins walk to the sightseeing location Yonghe Temple. Many restaurants nearby in the old Hutong . The room is small but simple. The toiletry, TV ( we didn't watch TV though), tea, coffee are all there. The hotel doesn't have fridge in the room so no minibar.
I stayed here for 5 nights, and while I was expecting the worse, it really wasn't all that bad. Sure, the toilet light was dim, the kettle kinda dirty, the beds hard as rocks, and a weirdly placed sink (outside of the bathroom, mind you), but it was all honestly not the worst. The beds were clean, the toilet working, and there was a barely-working AC. Honestly, the breakfast may be the worst of the entire experience, but can be easily dodged as there are numerous other local restaurants serving breakfast outside the hotel. Other than that, the room was also run down, the tap rusty, the bathroom with mold growing in it, and wasn't the best experience but still livable.
Since the hotel is located on old "Hutong", we don't have to shut down sleep by car horn. They offer either single room and double room but there is no bath tub in single room. A few stuff speak English and not so far from metro station. There a lot of small restaurants around the hotel and almost restaurants are not so expensive. However, I don't recommend just left one in front of the hotel. They brought me the dishes I never ordered and the bill was very expensive. Besides, I saw many parties claimed them about expensive bills. Anyway, the hotel is so nice against the price and you can enjoy Hutong life here.
Many restaurants and bars nearby. Good beds and soft pillows. Good wifi. Quiete location. Tables and chairs outside. Far from metro (20 minutes), not that clean and in need of fresh paint. Very little english spoken and no english tv. Breakfast is not that interesting. Hot water is not reliable and very often there is none.
After staying here we both had red dots on our body. When we got home this did not stop. We had to sanitize our apartment and the company told us that we had gotten bed bugs. I do not recommend anyone to stay here
