Everything about this hotel is out of step with modern Beijing. Almost no staff speak more than a few words of English. Check-in consists of the obligatory copying of your passport and shoving a room key in your hand -- no explanation of breakfast arrangements, no presentation of the room features, no offer to help with your bags. Good luck... More

I have stayed in this hotel for 3 nights because I attended a conference organized in this hotel. I have never experienced such a hostile services in my life. If you don't speak English and have any choice, avoid this hotel by all means. Nobody speaks English there, at the reception, restaurant or anywhere. Rooms are very basic and carpets... More

My Chinese hosts chose this state-run hotel and conference venue for me. It is called the International Bamboo and Rattan Tower after the name of the inter-governmental organization, the International Network for Bamboo and Rattan (INBAR), which is hosted by the Chinese Government. There are few such organizations entrusted to China, so the state does tend to throw money at... More

If you dont speak Chinese, dont stay here. The staff is totally rude and unhelpful. Upon checking out, they expected to charge me for 1 cheap glass they said I broke (which I didnt). A galls that costs 10 cents at the most! When I asked for a taxi, they simply said "no available" and ignored me. I had to... More

been there with my office staff for 5 nights. rooms are ok, breakfast not too bad for laowai. The main concern is that every night at 2 AM peolple come back from KTV with xiaojie and make huge noise in corridors (everybody knows Chinese high educational standards).

This hotel is poor from every angle. As Europeans arriving here on a business trip and not knowing more than a few Chinese words there was no one who spoke English and no one who could help us explain to any member of staff the simplest of our requests~like a duplicate room key or asking for a photocopy. The rooms... More

The beds feel like there is only a box spring on the frame. Comfortable ONLY if you like sleeping on a board. The thermostat did not work in many of our groups rooms and we had to open the window to avoid a stuffy room. Also, be warned there is no cab service until 0700 in the morning. If you... More
