“Decent quality on a budget, well located.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

I stayed here one night on business. The hotel is a little dated and worn, but it was certainly all clean enough. It would be a decent hotel if you are trying to see Beijing on a tight budget. It's a fabulous location, literally a 5 minute walk to Tianamen Square, The Forbidden City and also The National Museum.

There's no pool or spa area and also no gym, but that's probably reflected in the price which I thought was very good given it's location. Breakfast was fine (nothing more) and there's enough available to stop you going hungry. If you're not keen on the local breakfast fayre, there's McDonalds and Burger King nearby. The hotel is also pretty well located for shops.

There's a rooftop terrace bar with views to Tianamen Square but I didn't use in the evening as I was out for dinner and drinks.

Overall, I'd say it was good rather than very good, but average might have been a bit harsh. But certainly ok if you are on a budget and don't want to spend £125 per night. Cost for this place was around £70 per night.

I could not reccommend this hotel more! Absolutely great location, less than a 5 minute walk from Wanfujing and its subway. About a 15 min walk to the Forbidden City/Tiananmen square. Great value for money, the room was a very pleasant surpise for what I paid and was cleaned daily. What stood out most was the outstanding customer service- anything you asked was answered helpfully. I made the mistake of leaving my phone in the reception's toilet (not in my room) and even though it was the hotel's public toilet, when I called in a panic from the airport they knew immediately that it was mine as they knew my room number. The had called the last person on my phone list for information. Such great and lovely staff- they posted it to me in Shanghai on express delivery. A massive thank you to manager Joshua and Hellen who helped me very much with travel arrangments and advice. Will definitely be staying here if i'm in Beijing again. Reccommended to all!!

Room Tip: Try for a window room as mine was quite dark, but this wasn't a major setback.

Good hotel in an excellent location. Close to square, forbidden city, malls, parks etc. Very clean, but too hot- air con was not working properly. Would recommend staying here if sightseeing is a priority

Within walking distance from Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, this hotel had everything. The room was big and comfortable, and they upgraded us for no reason at all. How nice! We could also walk to the subway and to the biggest foreigner shopping street in Beijing. Pearl Market was just a cheap taxi ride away. The front desk people were friendly and there is a travel agency in the hotel that can arrange all your tours. The wifi was fast for Chinese standards. Everyone was very nice. One warning: BEWARE! Do not use the taxi drivers outside the hotel. They WILL rip you off, charging 5 to 10 times the meter rate for the same trip. Ask the desk to get a taxi for you and demand that your driver uses the meter.

Room Tip: If you care about view, pay more for an outside room. We had an interior room with a view of a decor...

The great advantages of this hotel are its location next to Tian An Men square and the forbidden city, and he hotel staff who are very service-minded, fluent in English and cheerful. Thanks in particular to Helen!! Great travel agent in the hotel too - excellent for booking excursions, getting timetable and location info or booking train tickets etc.

The rooms are fine. It was nice to have a water kettle with a good selection of tea available, big shower (if a bit aged), TV with one Western program. Rooms are generally quiet.

We did not have breakfast in the hotel as we wanted to skip the continental buffet and have Chinese style breakfast across the road (baozi and soup) so we cannot comment on this option.

Our two stays at Tianan Rega date back a year but are both still remembered very positively. We will return.

Close to Forbidden City and Tian'an Men Square. Front office did not speak English very well. Charged us for full amount up front. Nice rooms; we got upgraded to a suite. Housekeeping responded promptly to requests. Free WiFi in rooms and lobby. Nice breakfast variety for 80RMB. Two bottles of water provided daily. Tour office available on site. Good hot water and heat. Comfortable beds. All in all a good moderately priced hotel.

Stayed here a total of 7 nites. 2 stays. Can't complain . Nice breakfast , close to walking street. We used a guide to show us around. Very good and not expensive and very nice. Lily. A few minor complaints about hotel, not worth mentioning. We stay here again. Do not go to supermarket west of hotel across street right of drugstore. It is just a small hole. They over charge 3x on there stuff. Dumb tourist I guess. All in all a very good spot.
