“Go somewhere else unless you want to be toasted!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

I stayed for 3 days on a business trip. What a horror. When I arrived I asked for a non smoking room (also mentioned in my reservation) did not get it.

The first night was a real struggle as the room was very hot 27°C, air conditioning not working and only a very small window that could be opened. It was hell.

Next day I asked them to fix my air conditioning before I left for my meetings. When I returned, nothing had changed, still bloody hot. When I complaint again, somebody finally came.

He pressed some buttons on the control and tells that it is fixed. I told him it was not, I had already pressed these buttons and still no cold air was flowing. Then he decided he does not speak English anymore and just left my room.

I went down to the front desk and asked for a solution. They first called their maintenance guy to check up. She looked at me and said: Sir its fixed the airco is working go away!!!! and she waived me away. I have never been treated so unfriendly as in this hotel.

I stayed for another 2 nights to be completely cooked and then finally left.

The hotel is suppose to be 4*, but it is not. The shower is nice, but the bed is poor, the furniture is poor. The carpet is old and run down, with a couple stains that have already been there for a while. Also the walls had some stains.

The internet is impossibly slow that it becomes unusable at night. So business people forget about this hotel.

Location is also poor. It is far away from anything nice and the neighborhood has nothing to offer. The easiest way to get around is take bus 8 (have 1 yuan ready) and drive towards Chongwenmen station (about 15 minutes). from there you can take the subway anywhere you want. On the way back take bus 8 and get off at Peixin Jie (which is close to where you got on). You can take the bus by walking to the main street, take a right and after 80 meter or so you see the bus stop.

If you walk out of the hotel towards the main street and you take a left you will find a nice and very good restaurant after about 200 meters.

That's if you stay, I would not recommend it, unfriendly staff, bloody hot rooms and no 4* treatment. Go somewhere else and never, never go in the mid of summer as you will be grilled like a Peking Duck.

Room Tip: Book another Hotel!!!!!

We stayed here for 3 nights at the start of our 3 week tour of China with China Links Travel. The rooms were clean, comfortable, spacious with a good shower. Staff English language skills were variable. The breakfast was good - lots of choice and reasonable coffee. The hotel is a 20 minute walk to the nearest subway station, and less than 10 minutes to a busy street with convenience stores, a huge Carrefour supermarket and 24 hour ATMs.

I had been to China several times on business, but this was the first hotel on a holiday with my wife. A good spacious room with free wired internet. There was a minor problem - the previous occupants had left the safe in a way which it could not be used or even close the wardrobe door. However, when reported to reception they sent someone to fix it within 3 mins!!. Location around 400 - 500 yds from metro but many shops nearby. The toaster in the breakfast room was only working on three of six locations so caused a delay for the group I was in. Would go back again

Stayed here in May2012 a week, then returned after a week touring. We were lucky to have our Chinese daughter-in-law to translate for us to help with booking in as very little English spoken. Our room was lovely and spacious, good shower, comfortable beds sure there were herbs in pillows for relaxation as we slept really well. the staff were pleasant always acknowledged us with a smile or wave, which is nice when you cant speak their language.
We loved the surrounding area, friendly wee cafe opposite blind and deaf massage rooms (would also recommend this, it was so so good, felt totally chilled afterwards) plenty to do and see it was a great holiday, after visiting Xian area we came back to Peixin Hotel, it felt like coming home it was so good! Thoroughly recommend this hotel, we were room only, and hope to return to Beijing and Peixin in 2013!

Room Tip: Ask for a higher and non smoking floor

The hotel itself is ok. Good room, clean, good breakfast. Not to mention the computer and internet system that is integrated to the TV. Located relatively close to the city, and especially close to The Temple of Heaven. The only setback is lack of English speaking stuff, but when we were there, no big trouble.

this is run and owned by the police force in the area. totally corrupt. check out the huge jade statue in the lobby shop. must weigh over a tonne. this has been sold and resold and resold over and over again for huge sums of money but has never left the hotel. a way to launder money. just check out all the police cars always their. used to keep their girlfriends and whatever .

but good hotel nonetheless.
