“Excellent Hotel at a great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

The hotel is well located with clean and good sized rooms. Staff were curteous. Stayed as a VIP and ordinary guest and enjoyed both experiences. The check in for VIP's is not clear and only after going to ground floor reception was advised I needed to go to the 12th floor. Split level suites with a spiral staircase are attractive but luggage becomes a problem for older travellers with heavy bags.

Location: Located 50 meteres from the Chongwenmen subway station (line 2 and 5). Line 2 will take you to south part of Tiananmen Square, Guloudajie (Bell Tower, Drum Tower, etc). Line 5 to Tiantan Park and Pearl Market. Bus 103 is a very nice line as it stops right in front of the hotel. With that bus you can get directly to the Wangfujing street (south and north part of the pedestrian areas) and the Jingshanpark (great views over the Forbidden City). Also close by the hotel is shopping centres and right beside the hotel is a bakery. About a 20 minutes walk to the Tiananmen Square.

Room: Stayes at the Executive floor which was a normal room compared to US standards. Adjustable AC in room. Comfortable bed, shower without any temperature problems and good water pressure. Good WiFi internet. Room were not facing streets. No noise problems. Included in the Executive rooms are 2 pices of laundry each day. Used it - worked great. You will get two bootles of water each day. You have a minibar (did'nt use it; except for cooling water). Floors 12 and 15 were Executive floors and non-smoking. Own checkin for the Executive floors. I ate all my breakfasts at the breakfast area/lounge at floor 12. You can also have breakfast at the 1st floor. Between 6 pm and 8 pm there is free drinks and something to eat at the 12th floor for the executive floors.

Conclusion: Great hotel for the cost. Location is excellent. Choose the Executive Rooms.

Room Tip: Rooms away from street. Executive floors.

This was our first hotel stop in China so were not sure what to expect. It was not like anyother Novotel that we've stayed at but for us it ticked all the boxes. Basically we were looking for a clean room, helpful staff, western and chinese food and good location. This hotel met that criteria - might not be everyone's choice but worked for us.

We ate in the Citrus restaurant for breakfast and dinner and found the choice of food to be both extensive and tasty -although the staff could be extremely efficient in removing dirty plates. An activity that many hotels fail to do

Being first time in Beijing , I was lucky to be booked in this superb Hotel .
It is situated in a most convenient place whereas , Chongenmen Metro station is adjacent (less than 50 m.away) , so practically all Beijing is reachable through the Metro .
The Hotel is superb for travelers living on the executive floors , with a nice private dining area , offering breakfast and snacks , whilst in early afternoon there is a complimenatry bar service.
Staff is highly efficient and very professionals indeed , making you really feel at home .
Rooms offer also everything a traveler might need for a short (even a longer) stay and thus I highly revcommend this hotel for potential travelers .
Of course all contemporary facilities are available .
I really enjoyed it and soon i will be there again .

Room Tip: Select to stay on the business part (i.e. Floors 12-15) .It is really worth the extra fee , but you...

It does not deserve the rating. Staff were helpful but not attentive. The rooms are in need of a makeover. Construction and cleaning were going on during the day so lots of tapping. The in balance spa was complimentary but we did not use it, it was out of order on the first night we visited and appeared dirty and smelled unclean. Carpets and furnishings were in need of a makeover and did not seem fitting to the novotels image. We didn't end up using it at all. The nightclub adjacent was seedy and noisy and certainly not fitting to a relaxation area such as spa. Happy hour on the premier floor was included for us nd we got a few dens and snacks before dinner each night but nothing to rave over.

Room Tip: No swimming pool either. Definitely upgrade to a bigger suite as they are little

Arrived late night, but check in was prompt. Our triple room was huge and breakfast was fantastic. I booked direct with the hotel instead of online because I couldn't book the triple online. The reception/operator were very helpful. Will stay again...
