“Extremely Happy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2010

The hotel / Apartment was booked by my sister-in-law.

Not knowing the exact conditions of the place, we expected the worst (mostly due to the price we were paying for and in Beijing, no less?!, Our apartment cost about RMB600 per night), we were pleasantly, I mean very pleasantly surprise at what we got!

As we were travelling in a group of 6 adults and a young toddler, we got the apartment with 3 rooms (2 rooms with queen size bed, and a master room with a King Sized bed), it was nice and clean! and all of the usual amenities of a four star hotel was there, not to mentioned fully equipped kitchen, living room, dining area, washing machine, large flat screen TV with 60+ channels (though there're not many programmes to watch), bathroom with bathtubs, fully aircon, balconies, "wooden" flooring, nice and friendly staffs, etc etc... They even sent a service straight away when we inquired about using the washing machine as we didn't get it to work at first...

Hair dryer and electrical socket adapter is available from the check in counter, just need to place a deposit of RMB100 each, fully refundable upon returning during check out.

There's even a gym, sauna, etc etc... big supermarket opposite the road, convenient 7 eleven at the small shopping centre beside the hotel, plenty of eating places, shopping mall... convenient transportation - taxis, bus stops, subway stations all nearby...

No complaints! Very affordable and good value!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2007

We booked a three bedroom room for $92/nite, each room came with a queen size bed. Also included was a kitchen with frig and microwave, and a washer dryer. There was also a dining area and living room, where we could sit down at night and go over all the booty collected in a days shopping. While the rooms were very spartan and lacked color, the room was very clean. The location is great and I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone, except Leon Helmsley, who would probably prefer the Astoria.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2006

I traveled to Beijing in June 2006 with 6 friends and we needed an inexpensive hotel that would hold our large group. The Century Towers Beijing hotel was PERFECT. We made a reservation through www.sinohotel.com, which I was nervous about at first, not being familiar with them. The customer service reps were fantastic, responding to all my spastic e-mails quickly and with great care.

When we arrived at the Hotel, we breezed through check-in and were given the same price quoted on SinoHotel.com so there were no $$ issues. We stayed in a 3-bedroom apartment-style space (the "large" version offered on the website), with 2 full bathrooms (American Standard fixtures) a full kitchen, and a dining room. It even included a washer/dryer in the unit, though we didn't have any need to use it.

The apartment was very clean, air-conditioned, and spacious, even with the 7 of us, we had plenty of room to relax! The hotel is across the street from a HUGE supermarket, so we ended up cooking most breakfasts in the room, saving even more money! We kept lots of cold bottled water in the fridge to take with us on our adventures in the hot, dry summer weather of Beijing. The room included a large flat-screen TV in the living room with cable, and a few English-language channels like the BBC (and the Simpsons!)

Other really nice aspects of the hotel include a work-out room in the basement with treadmills, stationary bikes, a rowing machine, ballet bar, free weights, and weight machines. The hotel restaurant is very small but serves good food. The wait staff (and most of China) speak very little English, so learn basic Chinese phrases and expec to smile and point a lot :)

We are traveling to Shanghai in the Summer of 2007 and if Century Towers has a location there, we would absolutely stay again! I think the price is much cheaper at this hotel because it's a Chinese hotel, not a foreign chain. We paid about $85 USD/night for this large 3 bedroom apartment-style room. Between the 7 of us, the price was certainly right!

  • Liked — Cleanliness and Price
  • Disliked — ?? Can't think of a bad thing.
  • Tips/Secrets — Beijing is a fascinating place to visit!
