I was in Beijing for a couple of nights on business and the hotel is ideally located for the new business district. If you have to get across to the west of the city it can easily take an hour to go 10k if in the rush hour.
The rooms are spacious and traditional in feel. In a couple of years they might be considered a bit tired but at the moment they have character.
The key attributes for a successful hotel are done very well:-
• comfortable bed
• lovely shower
• great restaurants
The last attribute is quick wifi. Whilst this is acceptable, the local environment for surfing makes everything very slow.
Overall, lovely hotel and certainly the best that I've stayed in on the 4 country Asia trip that I've just finished.
