“Lovely apartment in good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

We have just returned from a week at the TaiYue Suites in Beijing. We took a two bedroomed apartment, with breakfast for three people and it cost a bit less than €650 which we consider to be excellent value. The apartment (2512) was spacious, had very comfortable beds, a good shower, big fridge and a kettle. As was mentioned in an earlier review there was no cutlery or cooking utensils but this was not something that we needed.The apartment was serviced every day and complimentary bottled water and tea bags provided. Internet(wired) was available and free in the apartment.Staff were very pleasant and many spoke English.Breakfast each morning was served in the hotel bar/restaurant. Plenty of choice in both Chinese and western food. We ate lunch and dinner here also occasionally during the week and found the quality to be very good, albeit at western prices. "Beer Mania", also in the same building had an incredible range of beers. Location was also good, easy walk to great shopping in Sanlitun, and 10 minutes to subway. We tended to use taxis which are really cheap with the airport run costing less than €10. Overall we had a very positive experience at the TaiYue Suites and would certainly stay there again if we return to Beijing.

Room Tip: While we waited to check into our suite they gave us a family room on floor 6. While it was fine for...

we were traveling with two yound kids and booked Tai Yue Suite. The room comes with two bedrooms, kitchen (refrig and microwave, stove), living room, dinning table and one bathroom. In general, the room function as we expected except for: there is no cooking utenciles in the kitchen so the stove becomes a decor and only have a shower in the bathroom which made giving bath to the kids difficult.
What we liked about this hotel: the front desk staff, most of them are very friendly and helpful. They always try to accommodate your request. The hotel is conveniently located in an area most embassies are located in beijing. There are bars, restraurants, shopping malls nearby. there are several restraurants downstairs and a night club on the second floor.
what we don't like about this hotel: we have 4 people staying in the hotel. The hotel only provide one set of hand towel and face towel. Even after I asked for it, the cleaning lady is still reluctant to give us more stating that she has 10 towels for 13 rooms. We have to beg loud to get extra from others. The room service for cleaning is not everyday. You have to ask for it and then they will come. The cleaning lady only do certain things. they never wipe the area around window- my kids got black hands after touching the window area. Overall, the hotel was not well kept. Although the cleaness of the hotel room needs some improvement, it is still livable.

Room Tip: We stayed at 25th floor- great skyline view

I was quite impressed with Tai Yue (aka Taiyue) Suites. Price (around $60) was quite reasonable for Beijing; room was huge; TV; internet; full size fridge; wash machine (no dryer) - Bathroom was fine with very nice shower; room was clean; bed comfortable. I was there 12 days so the washer was great. Plenty of local restaurants nearby; Taxis available in front of the hotel and metro station a pleasant 15 minute walk. The Village is a 7 minute walk and a great place to people watch. Sanlitun Bar Street is at the Village. It is the busiest nightlife street in Beijing. Rooms were quiet.
Cleanig staff kind and helpful; front desk staff spoke sufficient English and were helpful. I lived in China for 10 years; 7 in Beijing; This is a good location and price seems great. I have rebooked for 12 days in October and then again for 14 days in November.

I stayed several nights here while seaching for an apartment in Beijing. The hotel was very comfortable, clean and the staff attentive. The location is very convenient to the CBD and Sanlitun (Bar Street). The restaurant was good but touristy. A better deal is the little place across the street where the locals eat. They don't speak English and while the menu has pictures it's all in Mandarin. If I want pork I just bring my phrase book and point to the Chinese translations. Then the waiter points out all the pork dishes on the menu. You can get an excellent 3-4 dish meal with beer for less than 10 USD for two! Beer-Mania in the same complex as the hotel (street side) is a very pleasant place to sit outside while enjoying a Hoegaarden and a dish of peanuts. The Village (mall) just down the road caters is very ex-pat friendly, convenient but expensive. The Tree (behind 3.3 Mall) serves a nice four cheese pizza and great Belgian beers. I can eat there for around 120 RMB and still have half a pizza for breakfast the next day.

But the real surprise were the apartments available in Tower B next door (same complex). The property management office is in the basement and they don't speak English. But I still managed to rent a very nice furnished studio apartment at 4,500 RMB/month with a three month lease. They did want an additional month's rent for security. While they are not full service apartments it's easy enough to pick up linens, kitchenware, etc. at the markets nearby for a couple hundred USD. You have to have your utility card "charged" at the nearby Bank of China and I did subscribe to Internet service. It's a great location to see Beijing or even as a base for more extensive travels. Just returned from HK and every thing here is just as it was left.

Don't forget to register as a temporary resident with the PSB in Sanlitun- they do run sweeps through the apartment complex looking for illegals.

This is not a fancy hotel by any means. It's more like an apartment building which could use a brush-up. It's not filthy, but it's not spotlessly clean either. Breakfast, which is served in one of the three resaturants downstairs, is good, and there are computers with internet access in the lobby (for a fee).

The hotel is close to the Sanlitun bar area and a ten minute walk from Yashow Market. The subway is about 20 minutes away by foot. Being just a block away from the 3rd Ring Road makes this hotel easily accesible from the airport.

This is an OK place to spend a few days in Beijing, but don't expect anything extra, although the view from the upper floors is magnificent.

I stayed during the 2008 Olympics, I had a business suite which had a washing machine, microwave, stove and refridgerator. Room was okay but the bed was very firm and you only had 40 liters of hot water each day-so don't take a long shower if more than one person is in the room. Hotel reception speaks very little English-no help at all. The resturants at the hotel are average in quality and price-I recommend finding a resturant in the city. I do recommend the spa (ISPA) at the hotel. I had the 2.5hr Red Wine & Rose couples package which was very romantic (2400 yuan). The hotel is a short taxi (10 yuan)from the Silk Market, Beijing Opera and the Flying Acrobat Show.
