We spent a week in this hotel and a lot of things could be better. The rooms are well furnished, but very neglected. Certainly it would be necessary to focus on cleanliness. Breakfast was average, every morning the same thing, the same bread, tea could be due of better quality according to the destination. Also be attached greater importance to... More

Found this hotel to be well maintained , clean, great food and very friendly staff. Its location was well within the centre of most aftractions and easy reach of the ring roads. But you must remember that the shear size and population of Beijing means there will always be traffic. Like most hotels in China the beds are a bit... More

I tend to agree with previous reviews about this hotel. We were not with a tour group and it was very difficult to communicate with staff. Even ordering a meal in the main restaurant was interesting. We had to rely entirely on pictures. Disappointing only to have wifi in lobby and water for shower was only lukewarm throughout our three... More

We stayed 3 days in this hotel while on an organized tour with On The Go Tours, that I can recommended 100%... They were excellent. The reception was not able to speak English well, but it was no problem at all for us, as your tour guide did all the communication. This may be a problem if you do not... More

Stayed here whilst on an organised tour of Beijing, so no idea what the value was like. Also stayed in the place next door (to the left) which is clearly the same hotel for locals whereas Rainbow is for tourists. Hotel amenities were okay if a little dated. However, we were there in May with temperatures above 30 degrees and... More

I stayed here after a charity trek on the Great Wall. It was a very comfy experience after some of the other places we stayed. Very handy for some of the main sights. We had our end of trek celebration meal here - it was very good.

I stayed here for 5 nights leading a school party of teenagers. The two staff rooms were considerably nicer than the children's rooms on lower floors. Air con smelt badly of stale smoke. Teachers had Wifi router plugged in so Internet was excellent but, again, our students experienced a slow and intermittent service. Beds were hard and unforgiving with flat... More

We stayed 3 nights whilst on tour. The hotel is not near the metro and is at least an hour's walk to main shopping area. The area is very sleezy - sex shop down the street. The hotel room smelt like something had died in it and the toilet set was loose. In addition to this no shower curtain so... More

Really nice hotel, rooms spacious and clean. 10 minute walk to the Temple of Heaven park. Downside was location as it was a 25-30 minute walk to the subway station, there is a bus stop nearby if you know where the buses go. Wifi only worked in the lobby.

Reception really slow and not helpful or friendly. Early stay due to an escorted tour through On The Go Tours (which I wouldn't recommend either). We were therefore in this hotel for 5 nights. I would have spent more money and gone to a decent hotel otherwise. Very little air conditioning--they turned it off during the day and during the... More
