“Not bad for the price and location, but could be better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

We took 3 rooms at this hotel with my friends, which is found easily by the taxi (or 7 mins from the nearest metro station).
Rooms are ok and quite clean, not very big but can easily accomodate 2 people.
The bathroom is clean, however the shower is not separed which means water can slash on the floor of the whole bathroom is you do not take care !
Also, some rooms are on the street side, and you have to know that public work is allowed in the evening, I had to bear the jackhammer until 2-3am !!

Overall the hotel is worth its price, but I think you could find something slightly better.

Room Tip: Not on the street side !

Although its a cheap hotel its not worthy.
No ones speaks English, the breakfast its outside of the hotel and the rooms are terrible.
The hotel is dirty and messy.
You'll save a lot of time staying out of this hotel

We are currently trying to get out of our reservation with this hotel. The room size we booked, apparently doesn't exist at the hotel. That would be manageable except for the fact that there are so many other things that are wrong!

When we first entered the room, only one light switched worked - a dim entryway light. My husband, who fortunately speaks some Chinese, went down to get help. The person who came up to help had to screw in the lightbulbs because that was the only way to get the lights working! Since the switches don't work, the lightbulbs were unscrewed to turn them off. Yes, it's true.

Internet is nonexistent. The ethernet cord is broken and it feels like I have traveled back 20 years in time with the speed. Of course, it doesn't help that I just arrived from Seoul, a modern city with awesome internet speeds.

Let me state that I have stayed in many countries around the world, so I am used to less than ideal conditions. This hotel ranks at the bottom. Not even its close proximity can save it from my review. Instead, pay a little more and book across the street at the Sunworld Hotel. That is what I am trying to do right now.

Do. Not. Book. This. Hotel. If you do, I truly hope you have a better experience than I.

Room Tip: Please consider the Sunworld Hotel. It is directly across the street and has wifi. That's actu...

Excellent staff, the rooms are clean and a great location to be, as it is very near Wanfujing market. There is a macdonalds literally a minute walk from the hotel and a KFC near by (5mins). Or on your way to Wanfujing market there is a mall where there is a Pizza Hut. I was familiar with these western restaurants because I had never been to china before and was abit concerned about adapting to real Chinese food as the travel doctor said there is an 80% chance you will get diorhea whilst being there simply because of the different. so I eased into very slowly introducing medium size doses and was fine. Last thing you want is to be inside your hotel with a bad stomach when you could be visiting the Great Wall, forbidden palace etc.

You can take the Airport Express (25CNY) to Dongzhimen and from there, avoiding the taxi touts, take a metered taxi to the hotel for about 15CNY. It's about three minutes walk from Wangfujing and opposite the bigger Sunworld Hotel, whose free WiFi is within range of street-facing windows. Or you get an ethernet connection.

The little convenience store next door is a gem, and will give you the functions of a restaurant at a fraction of the cost. Cold drinks, beers, take away hot food of your choice, fruit, biscuits, it's all there. My favourites are triangular rice sandwiches with a core of e.g. tuna, called in Japan onigiri. Thus you can serve your own breakfast in your room, there being no inclusive breakfast at this hotel.

I enjoyed being close to the night market, and Wanfujing shopping area. Transportation was easy from near the hotel. Cheap food available close by. The rooms were simple and beds were hard, but if you are looking for a clean, safe, reasonably priced hotel where you will be treated well, I recommend this hotel. The wifi was very spotty as it seemed to be in a lot of Beijing. They did have an ethernet plug that worked in our room.
Cons: English was barely spoken (except for a lady on the day shift who is fluent) . Pros: All the staff try very hard to assist you.
It was a very nice place to visit.

Room Tip: Check for Wi-Fi availability

The hotel was clean. I arrives after midnight and the staff were happy to welcome me at that time. The hotel is located near some of the larger upmarket chain hotels. However in comparison to one other hotel I stayed at in Beijing this one is not in a great location for tourists. Plenty of places to eat nearby. Staff spoke very little English.
