Grand hotel is located on a 5-10 minutes walk from forbidden city and 4-5 minutes walk from the famous Wangfujang street. So the location is really convenient. Hotel decor is elegant and the rooms are spacious. The room rates are on the high side and the same is true for the breakfast. However, the breakfast is good with tons of variety. There is a money exchange and a tour desk in the main lobby, however I checked with them and their rates were very high and you can get the same tours at much lower price from other agents. Generally, our stay at the hotel was good. The hotel staff is nice and willing to help you. The staff in the breakfast room were really nice. The staff at the front desk were nice too however some of them need training in smiling. The beds were comfortable as well and not as hard as in other hotels.
We encountered two problems in the hotel and one of them might influence weather you want to stay in this hotel or not, This hotel has shut down their airconditioner for the spring. For the locals it might not be a problem but the people who go from cold climates really feel the heat at night. For couple of days we could not sleep properly and had to get the windows opened and even that did not help too much.
The other problem was that the shower drain was plugged and the whole shower pan flooded with water. We called the staff and they probably cleaned it but next day same thing happened.
I would recomend staying in this hotel provided the air conditioning is working and you get a reasonable rate.
