“Hard bed. Cigarette odor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2010

The location of the hotel is idea; within a healthy walking distance to many attractions and yet in a quite and safe location. However, the rooms have strong cigarette odor, even "non-smoking" rooms. As with many dated hotels in China, there are no dedicated smoking rooms. When you ask for a non-smoking room, they do a "smoking free treatment", which amounts to no more than removing the ashtray and spray some air freshener. The cigarette odor was still on the furniture, carpet, etc and very strong. We changed 2 rooms until giving up as the staff told us that's how it was. The beds were hard as with most older hotel in China. It was fine by me, but for Westerners such as my wife, it was very uncomfortable. Hopefully, they will have updated the hotel and modernized the management before our next trip to Beijing, b/c we like the location.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2010

The Dongjiao Mingxiang met my basic requirements of clean sheets, clean towels and hot water. The room was fairly contemporary and the breakfast excellent with a variety of western and Chinese dishes; however, the internet was only free in the lobby. The location was decent - it was only about a 15-minute walk to Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, and Wangfujing Street and Night Market.
