This is a very good hotel located in an upmarket part of Beijing (very close to embassy row and on top of a subway station). The rooms were good, beds were comfortable and the service was impeccable.
The only quibbles: the finish in the bathroom was cheap/nasty, the bathrooms were a little on the small side for two people, the breakfast staff were overwhelmed by the large numbers, the brewed coffee at breakfast was pretty horrible - they do have machine espresso, but not many of the staff were very good at operating the machine.
On the up side, the Mix Bar was fabulous - wonderful cocktails at a good price, excellent service behind and in front of the bar (special kudos to the bar manager who made sure the place worked so very well) and a great band! Stacey the lead singer had a beautiful voice and her band were very, very good. My only niggle on the bar was that it's also a cigar bar and the room was choked with smoke. There is a non-smoking area, but it's away from the bar and the band.
Great hotel, impeccable service. Recommended for business travellers.
Traveller tip: don't be afraid to use the subway - it's clean, efficient, announcements and signage are in Mandarin and English, and it's cheap as chips. Much faster than catching a cab in Beijing's terrible traffic too!
