“Not as usual”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

I love to stay at Starwood Chain Hotels, as worldwide frequent traveller I stayed in many hotels of this Group.
I like very much the Aloft Concept because it is fresh and smart idea, different then the "boring" standard hotels.

But when I stay in this hotel I do not found the same "Aloft quality" as other hotels of this brand.

So my personal feedback it is not not so positive. It is not well clean and smart as the usual.
It looks "too chinese" in terms of overall, decoration and style.

Dear guest, thank you for staying with us and giving us feedback! Aloft Beijing remains the core value of Aloft brand -- "Sassy, Savvy, Space", but adapt a little to Chinese market in order to better serve the marjority of guests who are Chinese. Looking forward to seeing you!

Wanted to try my first aloft hotel, but was a bit disappointed. I am a Starwood gold member but had to wait for quite sometime as there was a large group checking in the same time. Situation was quite chaotic, something not expected. Anyhow may it's not a type of environment I would enjoy. Rooms were a bit funky but rather small.

Don't recommend Aloft Beijjng to frequent Starwood travelers. Checked in today and regret booking this hotel. I had a great experience this year at Bangkok Aloft so thought I would try this one as my appointments are in the Haidian area. Hotel lobby is dark and cold. No good available when I arrived at 2pm. No room service and the restaurant was closed until 530pm. Don't let the updated decor fool you, this hotel is a throw back to 1984 China. Avoid this hotel

I was supposed to stay there for 9 days but I only stayed there for 1 night, not because of the services were not good but because of the location.
for tourists, it may seem a bit far from anywhere, there were only 1 big shopping mall there but it was so quiet which don't feel like to go shopping or watch movie or eat.
for business wise, it seems very good, quiet and decent.
I don't know about the room service since only stayed for 1 night.
the room was quiet stuffy even they have the air-con, they don't have the ventilator in the bathroom, and the shower room is only covered half and water comes out easily.
Dined at Nook hotpot buffet was quite nice.

Thank you for staying at Aloft Beijing, Haidian! Sorry about the location causing unconvenience for you as a tourist. However, the hotel is close to Summer Palace and the Beijing zoo which take only around 15 min, and it takes 20 min to the Olympic Center for visiting the Bird's Nest, etc. Looking forward to seeing you next time when you are Beijing for business!

My family and I (all adults, wife and parents) just returned from our two week trip to China. Our first hotel in the country was 3 nights at the Aloft Beijing Haidian. This was our first introduction to the Aloft brand and would definitely be open to staying at another one in the future. The hotel appeared to be newer (we were later told the hotel was built in 2008). I didn't feel the location was a hinderance since we were picked up each day by our guide/driver and everything in Beijing seems to take at least one half an hour to get to with the traffic.

TIP: There is a great local "farmer's market" just one block from the hotel and we ate breakfast and got our fruit here each day. Also, there is a large mall about 3 blocks down the road if you feel like doing any shopping.

Stayed two nights in this modern hotel with the signature Aloft set-up. Reception spoke English and check-in was smooth. Our twin room was pretty spacious with two queen sized beds, a coffee maker, large dressing area and an iron plus ironing board which came in real handy when travelling. Only complaint was that wifi was only available at the lobby.

As to the location of the hotel - from Changchunqiao subway (second last station of Line 10), go past the huge GR shopping mall to reach the hotel. The hotel reception and website will tell you that it is 10 minutes walk to the Changchunqiao subway but we took more like 20 minutes. By taxi, ask him to take you to Yuanda Road, "Xi Lai Teng" (Four Points by Sheraton) as Aloft is just behind it. Our taxi have to call the reception to locate the hotel and the fare was CNY58 from Tian an men.

The location is in the outlying residential area and our daily subway commute took about 1 hour and a change to reach the Forbidden City. As it was a bit far to the other tourist spots, while waiting for our late night flight, we spent some time at the GR mall where there are many restaurants and a cineplex.

Everything is great about this hotel. The room is like a very small apartment and paper l appointed. The wifi was free and fast. It was accessible from the lobby and also from my room with only one bar but able to connect.

The problem is checking in took almost 25minutes for a couple of rooms! So slow.

The staff were helpful and some spoke english. Sometimes we had communication problems, especially at the WXYZ bar.

The pool was very cold and not quite clean enough. Someone had dropped a bunch of pap fliers into the water that were floating and disintegrated. I cleaned the pool for them.

Overall, still pretty good.
