Stayed here for 3 nights at the start of our 3 week tour to China.
We were greeted on arrival by English speaking staff which helped make the checking in process easy. Our room was on the ground floor and was bright and clean and modern. There was a mini fridge stocked with water, pop and a couple of beers! This was completely free of charge and was filled daily! Newspapers were left outside our room each morning and small cakes and a daily weather report left each evening. Breakfast was lovely with a good selection of hot and cold food and drinks. The roof top bar had beautiful views of the forbidden city, although we did find the drinks here very expensive compared to the city bars and cafes.
The hotel is really well situated if you want to be close to lots of local attractions, whilst away from the immediate hustle and bustle of the city. It's position gives you an insight into the real Beijing. It felt safe enough to venture out and eat in the small family run eating houses! The food was delicious and cost as little as 75p per person!! The city centre shops are only a ten minute walk away. Here you will find the usual collection of high street stores such as Zara, Nike & Gap!! All the stores are open until 10pm. There are also a couple of traditional night markets selling food including the dreaded bugs!!!
All in all we loved Beijing and TheEmperor Hotel is an excellent base from which to explore the city!
