Hotels in this area is not cheap, some more in capital like Beijing. But the location is excellent. It is situated just beside the subway Dong Dan station (can catch trains on Line 1 and 5), less than 10 minutes walk to Wang Fu Jing street (either along main street or can walk through the mall with aircon), 15 minutes walk to Tiananmen (east station) and the square.
I rated this hotel 3/5 instead of 2/5 with one condition - I could speak Chinese. If you can't really speak Chinese, i think there might be issues at the reception. Yes there are 20 channels on the TV - but all in Chinese! And the position of TV is not in front of bed, so you gotta lie on the sides to watch. I was quite unhappy when i realise they did not sweep the floor during daily housekeeping. It was parquet flooring so I figured that it should be easier to clean as compared to carpet floor. The bathroom is clean but it is small - just enough to step in and close the sliding door. The cleaner tend to close the thingy at the sink so might end up with water retained at the sink after washing hands. Initially i thought it was drainage issue, but all you need to do is press down the metal thing in center of sink and you can use the sink like normal and water will flow down. Somebody slipped 2 cards of skimpily dressed women. There was a sign behind the door that says ignore such cards as it is a scam, so just throw it outside and they probably wont do it the next day.
Water temperature for shower was easy to adjust, so this part is ok to me. Bedroom size is decent, bed is not too soft nor hard. Clean kettle, cups and good quality coffee&tea.
The hotel staff doesn't seem to know much about the common tourist destinations (as they are of a chain hotel and not an entirely new business, i expected them to know more about getting around). I asked if they knew how to get to Mutianyu (one section of the Great Wall) by bus from Dongzhimen but they were clueless...
This hotel is only excellent for its location (and the local grocery shop on the way to hotel which i can get cheap drinks and snacks).
