Stayed here on the way through Beijing to the airport. Just across the road from the main station, and thence an easy ride on the metro and airport express (though avoid the rush hours). The only problem I had, despite the hotel being in full view, was finding the entrance! So if you wish to avoid a full circuit, stand... More

The room is not soundproof. We could hear the door of the hallway closing loudly. Our view was an aeration pipe! The hotel room could be cleaner, found hair on the bathroom floor... Breakfast is poor, I had to ask for more cheese every time, which was always looking so bad. They don't speak a word of English in the... More

I took my parents to Beijing and we stayed here. We were planning to take a train from Shanghai to Beijing (which would have been great considering the Beijing Railway Station is right across the street) BUT we ended up flying in to the Capital Airport. Everything is within easy reach of this hotel via taxi, walking or the Metro... More

A moderate Breakfast. 10th floor rooms (Executive rooms) are the best. There are many free amenities on this floor's room, like happy hour. Rooms are not spacious, but not too small. Staff does not know English (In China nobody knows English!!!). The hotel is so near to the metro station and near to City Center. WiFi is free but the... More

Stayed here for for nights in May. The hotel is in a good location for geting out and about on your own. It's opposite the Beijing Railway Station and there are plenty of shops and restaurants a few minutes walk. It took about 20 minutes to walk to Silk Street indoor market and was only a short tube ride away... More

Our first room was dark, no view and not very clean. They found a room with a city view but very hot as the a/c didn't work well. Found a huge cockroach in a drawer! Wifi terrible everywhere. Tried the business centre but it's expensive, the staff rude and inefficient. We had to sit in the lobby as they missed... More

Went there for business. The rooms are nice and clean.. but all this go to the waste bin when you interact with the personnel, we found this awful treatment: - You will be charged the plastic bag for laundry (which I always use free). - You could not sit in the lobby if you are not ordering something (tea, coffee,...

Its location and facilities is very convinced. But internet connection is so poor at rooms. The perfect location for WiFi is lobby. I confused by giving deposit + 5% service + something else in advance. The staff are kind. I satisfied by trying souvenir shop.

The main advantage of this hotel - location. It was quite faster to get from airport to railway station (city center) The room was not big but clean. It was enough to sleep between flights. But I really was upset to find dead cockroach in bathroom. I know there are a lot of cockroaches in China, but PLEASE not in... More
