This hotel is at the intersection of subway line 1 and line 5, Dandong station. The location is near several local banks. However, I found out that I cannot use my ATM card at these local banks, must be a national bank, such as Bank of China, or China Construction Bank. There is no national banks near this hotel. Although convenient for travelers because of the proximately to two subway lines, the surrounding is completely dead at night. I've been to many Chinese cities and stay in many hotels. This is the only one hotel that I can remember that has no restaurants, snack stands, convenient stores, or any eateries... nearby. Also, one of the subway lines ( I don't remember which) has a lot of steps ( 100 steps, I counted) to get to the ground level and both do not have escalators. Therefore, if you come here from the airport, do not attempt to take the subway, take a taxi. You can take the airport train to Donzhimen subway station (where the train terminates) and then take a taxi to this hotel. However, there is no escalator at Donzhimen; you have to struggle with the luggage.The room that we stayed in have no windows. Where the window should be is a wall behind a curtain. I've never been to a hotel with rooms that have no windows. But then, this is China, you have to expect the unexpected! The wall at the hallway that leads to the bathroom has a frosted glass; you can see the silhouette of the person sitting on the potty! Why did they have to put a glass there?! Otherwise, the room is spacious and comfortable. TV has English channels.
