Hard to describe this monstrously big hotel, which at first glance may seem comfortable and spacious given its large size rooms with big baths and lots of open space, but in reality it is a rundown establishment with little charm and not very welcoming. The breakfast, however, is surprisingly good, offering very rich and fresh selection of Asian as well... More

The Friendship Hotel is huge. In fact, it's a whole area full of huge buildings with what must be thousands of rooms, set in a garden of sorts. Even getting to breakfast required a five minute walk. With multiple restaurants, a pool and gym, gift shops, and all the services a traveller might need, it's predominently a business hotel. However,... More

I stayed 4 nights at this hotel to attend a conference. My room was spacious and comfortable. Everything was clean and ordered. Metro is within walking distance. However, talking to the staff was a nightmare. Most of them don't understand/speak good English. I tried to get some food at the restaurant but the waiters were not able to take my... More

travelled on business and was booked in Building 2, "disaster" needs attention as compared to building 1 which has some character and wifi in your room. building 2 lobby is average compared to building 1. Long walk to breakfast area and the hotel layout is a compound and you need to request a map to understand the layout. Breakfast is... More

I stayed 5 nights in this hotel. As I am from Nepal, I don't speak Chinese so, I was worried for the communication problem which I had earlier in kunming city hotel. But surprisingly most of the front desk staff can speak English so it was easy for me to communicate. The room was nice and big. The bathroom was... More

Stayed here for a work meeting in Beijing. This hotel was booked for me by the organisers, i would otherwise not choose to stay here. :-) I stayed on the executive floor which was 'nice', however rooms were tired looking, not dirty or anything but it just looked like i was back in the 1980s. Looks aside, everything was functional.... More

I do not recommend this hotel, the entire establishment needs a serious update in terms of service, food and the overall experience. I was lucky enough to be in the main building so the room was adequately updated but not great. The bed was comfortable and the room was spacious but bathroom needed an update. The service from the staff... More

We've been five days in the hotel. The rooms in the executive floor are very nice. Yet the service is not at the standards of a five star hotel. The Buffet in the morning is far away from the quality of 5 stars hotels we visited in the South of China. Room service also has its problems. Moreover make sure... More

This hotel was built in the 1950's for Soviet advisors in China, and some of this large complex still capture this grandiose history. Overall, the hotel is good but not great. The complementary breakfast and the banquet both were quite good. (We were attending a conference.) Note that the location is not optimal for most tourist attractions.
