I enjoyed my stay here. The bathroom and beds were very clean. Don't expect a lot, if you're traveling for the sake of seeing things and not for the sake of luxury, then this is the place for you. It has very good location to many shops, subway and within walking distance to a shopping district. Very close to many... More

was going to give this place 2-3 stars, but then the ordeal of checking out earned them only 1. Many of the rooms are windowless and the smell of smoke permeates the walls. The heat barely works, so it's cold at night. The tours in the lobby are overpriced (especially if you don't want compulsory shopping stops), so I'm glad... More

This is a review for a 7 day stay in October 2014. I thought the hotel was clean with comfortable bed/bedding. Bathroom was acceptable although I would have liked a western bathroom with a bathtub. It's about 5 minutes of walk to subway line #2 which is three stops away from the airport train. On the other hand, it's kind... More

I hate to say it,But though the location is really good, This place is really sketchy. The staff do a great job making this place have a bad vibe to it. I can testify that what other people have said is true. Another reviewer stated that he had been taken by a tea scam. The same thing happened to us,... More

you get what you pay for, this is a budget travellers hotel/ hostel so don't go expecting luxury! Our twin bedded room was clean, comfortable with an ensuite western bathroom. It was cleaned daily. We stayed for two weeks here in September ( with three nights away in Xian ). It is hard to find......... Three separate taxis all took... More

Overall, this was a good wee place to stay in. We spent a week here when we 1st arrived in China. To begin with, it wasn't easy to find so if you're unsure on how to get there, get the subway to Guloudajie station on line 2, take exit G which is also sign posted for line 8 transfer. When... More

The hotel was a bit tattered but the room was clean and adequate. The AC seemed to operate on the cool side but was manageable. I had been to Beijing before and did not have to depend on the staff for information which was probably a good thing as I did have a bit of a problem communicating with them.... More
