The hotel is conveniently located in the financial area of Beijing. Not too far from the forbidden city ad literally close to Joy City Mall; Pacific Mall and Galeries Lafayette Beijing. That said it makes a good destination for shopping lovers too. The room was quite large but nevertheless it shows it is a pretty old building and strongly believe... More

I once gave up Minzu to try this hotel but found it was just so so. Not enough warm could be felt during the stay. Staff not many. Rooms are just ok but below my high expectation. I booked five nights but the next morning I checked out and moved back to my familiar Minzu Hotel.

Very nice hotel, good surrounding (especially for shopping). Close to metro stations, with good connections to the whole Beijing area. Also close to the several points of interest. A reasonable price for the services provided.

Avoid this hotel if you can. I did not actually overnight in the hotel as my wife and I took one look at the room, tried to get another and then asked for our money back. Problems were multiple. The check was ok (no english) but the room was large but had several issues. The lessor was that it was... More

We spent 6 nights at this Hotel. Excellent location for easy accessibility to downtown attractions. The attached mall and surrounding shopping centres give plenty of options for meals and shopping. However, be prepared to pay top price as many of these retail outlets are high end. Most deals are found across the street in the lower end malls. We stayed... More

I've just come back from my 1st Beijing trip last week. Upon a Beijing friend's recommendation, we booked a twin room at Joy city through Expedia.com, searched thru Tripadvisor. Rate was value for money, but don't be misled by the Expedia price quote. The hidden extra charges & tax aren't mentioned until it's too late. Anyway, I hope everyone benefits... More

This hotel is in a very nice location to navigate around Beijing and there is plenty to do close to the hotel. Also the price is great for what you get and the rooms were comfortable and clean. The only issue was the air conditioner didn't work very well so it was a bit warm in the room. Stayed here... More

We have no choice as we already round the town & search for the hotel for around 2 hours after check out from Novotel Peace.... More

The location of the hotel is excellent, although the taxi driver struggled to find the entrance. Although I did not expect a 5* international chain hotel, my hopes were high. Once settled, we noticed that the bathroom was dirty (dust and hair all over), the refrigerator did not work (we were told that it works, although the temperature was 15... More
