“Thrills, no frills”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

Perfect location, 10 minutes walk from Sanlitun bars, 3 minutes from best duck restaurant in town, clean, simple, modern. Nice rooms, great matrasses and soft sheets, big screen, free wifi and VERY reasonable prices. What else can anyone want ? Oh... maybe a spa ? or a 24/24 concierge ? room service ? If that's you're after, go elswhere and pay double. Or more.

1. The only thing I like about this place is that the housekeeping staff are pretty good but thats just it.
2. You can catch the bus to Sanlitun and back (only 3 stations) - Bus 110,120 and 623


What everyone fail to mention is how thin those walls are (except Beverly916), I can hear the floor below us placing coins on the desk, someone clearing his throat (perks!), etc etc... the list goes on
In reality Chinese do speak really loud, so you can imagine at 12 midnight when you are dozing off, all that you can hear is some guy's entire conversation shouting into the phone.
Though the local food is not bad and well priced, most plates are chipped and the soup bowl has stain around it.
There is a coffee machine but you can never get them to make you fresh coffee or espresso in the morning. (it's ok if customer has to pay for it, just inform them the price).
Breakfast is bare minimal but sufficient though I wish with it's bare minimal spread at least the quality should be there but, no chance there was well. The fruit always appears as if it as been left overnight and not all slots work for the toaster.
The butter is an entire bowl where you scoop from (yes, very canteen/tuckshop style).
Lastly, ladies, do bring your own shower amenities. Shampoo/ conditioner and all unless you want to use the same gel for hair/body which they provide in a squeeze bottle.
will I stay there again? Very unlikely.

Room Tip: some rooms faces an office building where everyone can look into your room. So ask for one that does...

Brought a group from Shanghai to stay here for the weekend. Staff were helpful and accommodating and rooms were comfortable. Would definitely bring more of my clients here. The free wifi makes this place productive and relaxing. It's also just around the corner from Sanlitun so it's very convenient for taking meetings, enjoying a nice dinner or going out and exploring Beijing's nightlife scene.

Loved this small modern and very clean hotel.

Pros:
- Rooms/decor are very modern and sleek. B
- Great price.
- Large bathrooms.
- Breakfast included has a decent selection of food.
- Large comfortable bed.
- VERY clean!

Cons:
- Paper thin doors/walls. You can hear when anyone coughs, closes their door or talks.
- It's difficult to find a staff member that speaks English well.

Overall I liked the hotel quite a bit except for the thin doors and walls.

The hotel is located closeby the airport express station, easy access to deplomatic zone and Sanlitun entertainment area.
Clean, functional and friendly staff in the hotel, I mean, it is not like the 5 star hotel to have swiming pool or Gym whatever, but the facility and functionality is definately worth the price of paid.

Room Tip: The business room over 60sqms, almost equal to a business suite.

Traffic in Beijing is horrendous so a hotel close to the Airport expressway and yet in town, next to Tayuan diplomartic Compound and second and third ring roadd is a treat. The Tangram is a perfect business hotel: rooms are equiped with all needed amenities (wifi, large screen TV. etc), quiet, comfortable and very reasonabily priced. No gym or spa, but a decent bar, good breakfast and an easy place to catch a cab, not an easy thing in Beijing these days.
