“Pleasantly Suprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

After a failed booking at another hotel, we were offered a room at this one. We were immediately impressed by the grand lobby - based on earlier reviews, they must have finished the renovations sometime before we got there. We stayed two nights in a comfortable and quiet room that showed signs of having been renovated. We chose to eat our first dinner at a wonderful Japanese restaurant in the shopping mall across the street. The second dinner was at one of the inside restaurants - good but very over-priced in our opinion. The breakfast buffet was really good, with a large selection of foods but lacking variety from one day to the next.

On the second morning, we decided to make use of the pool which is located in the gym in the conference area next to the hotel. Now, that was a treat! Upon entry, ladies and gents were separately and quietly ushered into well-furnished changing rooms, supplied with towels, gowns and bathing caps, before being led to the large pool. Afterwards, we were led to showers where soaps, shampoos, combs, moisturisers, etc. were available for use; even our feet were toweled dry for us! This is a must if you visit this hotel.

We walked to the subway, not too far away, to get around Beijing. Tianmen Square and the Forbidden City were within 2 stops away. Getting to the airport was also relatively simple, with 2 transfers, the last being the airport fast train.

Good: Close to Wangfujing, Chaoyang, SOHO, executive floor served excellent coffee on request and good wifi.
Bad: Breakfast was tolerable, but evening tea snacks were terrible, like leftovers from various restaurants put together to deliver a 'mysterious chef's creation'. Shower area invariably got clogged - drains seem to not have been cleaned in years!
Ugly: Sleazy massage cards slipped under the door at night advertising sexy masseuses dressed in pink lingerie...on an executive floor? At least the lady executives could have been spared this?

Room Tip: When in China, always ensure you have a room with a view. Most rooms on the executive floor though h...

We moved here after spending 2 nights in a back packers paradise. Finally a clean washroom and a soft clean, comfortable bed.

The breakfast was WOW!. Never been to a place with soooo.... much variety.... Chinese & western.

The metro station is about 300 mtrs away. There is a big mall right accross the road with a lot of variety for food. There is a shuttle bus for from the hotel to the Airport.

The restaurants inside the hotel are expensive and the food is just ordinary.

Will definetly stay there next time I am in Beijing.

Room Tip: Watch out they will try to give you a crappy room if you booked over the internet and then try to se...

The rooms are very big, but a bit old dated. Breakfast was nice, got a large choice with some Chinese local dishes and dim sum. The mrt station is a bit far, and you will likely need taxi all the time, through its very close to the tiananmen sq. recommended!!

I stayed at this hotel as a very short stay business traveler and thus have nothing to say about the hotel's amenities or tourist options in the area. However, the hotel does offer easy access to public transportation and the Beijing Railway station (there are several in the city), and standard access to the airport. On a related note, it is not far from Tiananmen and the Forbidden City. My room was quite nice, though the bathroom could have been smaller while providing a bigger living space. The Sky Cafe, where breakfast and late-night buffet are served, has ample and abundant food options, but these options are a little motley and despite the variety, can be boring after a few days because they are the same options. Service was solid, though not always friendly or quick. If you have an important or pressing important, reserve or arrange a taxi in advance. Taxis seem to be very hard to get at this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing Jianguomen。Higher is better.

This is a very large, 5 star hotel which was undergoing some renovations when we stayed here in August. We stayed here twice during a tour of China, at the start and end of the trip. Our first room was spacious and with everything you would expect from a 5 star hotel. The second room we stayed in was not up to standard and seemed a little shabby.
There seemed to be far more staff than was needed and any we spoke with were helpful and polite. The top floor has a revolving restaurant and bar, and this is worth visiting for the impressive views.
The breakfast was plentiful and varied, with Western and Asian cuisine. The prices for drinks at the bar were exorbitant and this put us off staying long.
There are shopping centres and restaurants nearby - head though the underpass. Beijing is perfectly safe to walk around at night. The hotel has shops, restaurants and a gym - none of which we made use of.
This hotel was fine for the purpose of our holiday, certainly no real complaints.

Located in a prime position, with plenty of resaurants and shops directly opposite. The foyer was undergoing renovations but the hotel was well kept with clean rooms and bathroom.The restaurants were excellent if a little pricey.
