I cannot complain about the hotel itself. The standard is good. Staff is friendly but :
The location is not central. And this came for me at a price! My business was in central Beijing and I had to take taxis everywhere I would go. Taxis are cheap but traffic is really bad so after working and going to meetings, and spending an average of 1 hour in the taxi I had no energy left to go back to the center.
The hotel is located in the middle of several motorway style roads (see pictures), so you have to get your breakfasts and diners in the hotel. And it is really expensive. The buffet breakfast is 24 British pounds, the diner buffet is 53 pounds in the weekend ( only coke, water or sprite as softs are free).
So think carefully when you book it. There are more central hotels with cheaper food options.
