“Nice enough hotel but location not the best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2010

This hotel was nice enough. Booked through wotif.com and it was a mystery hotel so the price was reasonable and we were upgraded to a nicer room because they had over booked. I would recommend keeping your booking print out to show the reception. (just to show you didn't use a travel agent and what sort of room you have booked, and to show you have paid, otherwise they might ask you to pay a service fee or change your room)
The shower was either boiling or cold but the room was nice and very spacious. The staff were helpful and nice.
We struggled to get to the hotel because the taxi drivers didn't know where the hotel was, so I would recommend printing out the name, address and phone number in Chinese.
We caught the airport shuttle bus to the Railway station (13 Yuan) and then got a taxi to the hotel. (16 Yuan)

The location isn't great but if you are happy to catch a public bus or taxi it wouldn't be too bad.

They also asked for a deposit of 500yuan

We stayed in this hotel for three nights and enjoyed our stay. We were in a large room with a free internet connection available directly on the TV. The hotel staff was very friendly although their english was a bit poor.

The hotel is located about 15 minutes drive from the city center. Except that it is not really conveniant, it's not a big deal since taxi fares are really low and it is usually easy to find one.

We would definitly return it that hotel.

I am writing this review at the Peixin - the computer in the room is an excellent bonus! I have just read the previous reviews and would like to comment that this is my 7th hotel in China and the beds are the same firm matress everywhere, so that is a non-issue. There only IS one English language TV channel - CCTV channel 9 - in China, so you can't blame the hotel for that! Yes, the hotel is a taxi ride from Tian'amin Square but the ride is 12 Yuan - les than $2 - and takes 10 minutes, which makes this hotel great value. The rooms are clean, my single has a king bed, and the room is quite spacious. The breakfast buffet is very good and great value for 20 yuan - served from 6:30 to 9:00. I had a problem with this computer and housekeeping was at my door within 5 minutes to solve the problem. The hotel is non-smoking which is a pleasant change from most hotels in China, and is listed as a "Green Hotel". I booked on-line and the price was a lot cheaper than the posted rack-rate at the hotel. I would definitely recommend the Peixin - great value for the money.

The hotel is very near Hongquiao market and some malls. The staff are quite friendly and helpful, though some may have difficulty in speaking English. You can exchange your dollars to yuan at the front desk. Before going out, ask the front desk clerk to write in chinese characters the place where you would like to go to. The room is big enough for two people. There are no good views though, one side faces a school area and some residential areas. Overall, i think the place is wonderful and i will definitely will stay there again when i go back to Beijing.

Hotel is nice. Rooms very clean. Front desk staff have limtied knowledge of English BUT they do their best. There is a small gift shop that sells trinkets and personal items should you need them. The hotel is convenient to Pearl Shoping Market. It is about a 10 minute walk. Streets perfectly safe to walk around. There are a few small stores around, a McDonalds just down the street. The morning breakfast buffet at hotel is good. The coffee needs work though. (so does most of China)
There is an atm machine in hotel. They also have a currency exchange at front desk. They take most currency at reasonable rates.
Beds are firm as in most chinese hotels. There are computers in rooms with free internet access. It can get frustrating using them as they have a Chinese keyboard and you need to type all IN CAPS in order for the English not to convert over to chinese. Still, sending a quick email home without costing anything was great. Limited english speaking television.

Pro's: Inexpensive

Con's; Poor location, far from most areas of interest -10-15 minute taxi ride to most major city center sites. Uncomfortably hard beds -like most Chinese state run hotels.
