The hotel is very easy to find, it is behind the Regency Hotel opposite the Starbucks. The metro is around the corner, less then 5 minute walk. The moment we arrived we were greeted by the reception staff and given ginger tea as a welcoming drink. Considering it was - 17 outside we really did appreciate the lovely gesture. I agree with other reviewers that the staff sometimes did not understand some basic questions. The rooms are a nice size and are equipped with everything you would need. They also had international sockets which was very useful. We felt we were centrally located because Wangfujing market was a 10 minute walk, Tianamen Square was a 30 minute walk and Forbidden palace was another 10 minute walk from Tianamen Square. There is a taxi rank outside the hotel so getting around was not a issue. We would recommend to use the metro because it was cheap a couple of rmb to any destination, fast and very clean.
