Came into Beijing for business, the Prime hotel was booked for convenience to project site only. This hotel is a little long in the tooth to be called Prime. The location is fine. The room was passable, with 70s black marble baths and fixtures. At first glance I thought it was dirty but after some thought, maybe that was the intent. Theres a handpainted mural behind the headboard which had some interesting preschool graffiti added to it. This kid had the whole mural to himself and went to town, Sort of makes you wonder if housekeeping ever looks up from making the beds...Breakfast buffet was not good, lots of variety but not good. One morning I chose some fruit to start and evidently they chose to cut onions earlier that morning with the same knife. Pretty gross. Lots of reheated chinese food with lots of things you'd find at a bad salad bar. Later I learned that breakfast becomes the lunch buffet so why not leave the veggies and dressings out for a few hours to warm up? Baked goods were devoid of taste but had lots of texture, reminded me that sawdust was the main ingrediant.
Overall, I think this hotel could be way better, the staff is not bilingual and doesnt try either. Tried the hotel restaurant on my last day where a complementary fruit platter arrived garnished with a huge mosquito.
When I thanked the waitress and declined, she moved the plate to the next table. 5 * I think not.
