“Nice comfort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

First off I have found that most beds at hotels in China are hard and this was not any different. The breakfast had a combination of Chinese and American style breakfast items. More on the side of local items to try. I just made a breakfast sandwich every morning, which worked out really good. There is a 7/11 store to get miscellaneous items (food, soda, alcohol, sweets, travel necessities, etc). Also nearby is a McDonald's, Post office and Subway. This hotel is near the attractions of the Forbidden City and Tian'anmen Square. The staff was courteous. Only some understood English, but I did not find this to be a huge hindrance. I was able to use my 2 prong mobile charger inside the room. As well has my 3 prong extension cord.The restaurant providing dinner inside the hotel was not impressive. It was hard to communicate with the staff here.

Room Tip: In October the hotel shuts off the A/C. So know that if you get hot you have the option of opening u...

We booked our China tour with Beijing Tours under their deluxe accommodations package Sunworld Hotel was offered. The hotel is in a good location to shopping. Here you find major stores especially your American brand stores that one is use to is all in walking distance. There is an ATM directly across the street that offers English translation. Be advised the staff even the front desk speak either no English or select words just to get by. Since I travel all over the world I don't expect everyone to speak English nor do I get mad it only makes me want to learn they native language even more. In regards to the rooms...yes the bathrooms are small and certain areas are overlooked in being clean. Then again I just did leave the Fairmont Makati in the Philippines so I am a little spoiled. Our tour packages included breakfast so in regards to price I couldn't tell you if it is worth it. There is a wide selection of fruits, pastries, omelette station, various juices as well as eastern and western choices.

Do not stay here! We had an incredibly frustrating time staying here as a family. The level of English of all staff was very poor - trying to order a cheese pizza from room service took 20 minutes, 3 or 4 staff and prompted me to hang up in the middle. Dinner food was very poor - a Chinese restaurant without soy sauce or fresh chilli?? Soup was just noodles and hot water - no flavour at all. Again, trying to get by when no restaurant staff spoke English was no fun. We have lived and travelled all over Asia as a family, are very flexible and tolerant, but this was just very poor service, very poorly trained staff, ....

I was disappointed at this hotel since I did not realized there were 2 SunWorld Hotels in Beijing. I wanted the one situated at Waifujing so as to be right in the tourist area, so upon learning that we were booked at this one, I was very upset. This hotel is a typical "Chinese Hotel" , very few speaks English, the lobby was very dark and in shambles, unkept and not at all presentable. The room size is okay but with very low ceiling and so little space between the bed and the TV cabinet, that you can't hardly pass.. The toilet was a bit small and not very clean, the floor tiles are slimy. I made a mistake of booking with breakfast, the breakfast is lousy, almost un edible. They can't even fry an egg without submerging them in too much oil. I paid for breakfast but ate only hard boiled eggs. I will never go back o this hotel again. They don't even have a pool!

Room Tip: Make sure you book the correct SunWorld Hotel in Waifujing!

A great hotel in a super location. Check in excellent, staff friendly and helpful, one English speaking staff always available. Room was spacious, immaculately clean and well maintained for the 4 nights we were there. Lovely crisp white sheets, fluffy white towels, bath mat, etc. toothbrushes bottled water, slippers, kettle all provided, large screen tv with CNN and HBO.
Location is superb, just around the e corner from the main shopping street in Beijing, behind the Sunworld Dynasty Hotel which I believe is managed by the same company. (Prices are very different though!) this was booked for us by a tour company and I was very impressed with the hotel, couldn't have picked better myself.

Room Tip: We were on floor11, never once waited for a lift, view over the rooftops of Beijing to the high rise...
