We stayed at the Traders Upper East Hotel for six nights in February.
Location: very good. The area around the hotel is very quiet, it's not in the hustle and bustle of downtown Beijing. Quite the opposite. There are a good number of embassies in the areas which makes it pretty safe. There are also a number of nice cafes and restaurants within walking distance. A major attraction, about 20 minutes walk away, is the Art District. An absolute must.
Service: excellent, from the second we arrived at the hotel. The taxi driver had totally over-charged us so a person from the reception came out and helped us get part of our money back. Throughout the stay the personnel was extremely helpful and took their time answering all our questions. They were truly nice people there to help us.
Room: Good size. We had twin beds with some extra space around it. A small tv which we barely used. The shower was very enjoyable too with a good amount of pressure. View from the room was nothing to rave about but that's fine, we didn't really spend much time at the hotel. The bed was comfortable even though the mattress was pretty hard.
If you're looking to spend a couple of days in Beijing I'd recommend staying there. It's within driving distance from all the major attractions but at the same time you can enjoy a quiet walk right outside the hotel.
Bonus: no smoking anywhere in the hotel (as far as I could tell). That can't be said about other hotels in China.
