Stayed here in July during a summer vacation visit to Beijing.
The hotel is very near the Forbidden city so it is VERY CROWDED in this part of town. Oversized busses, gaggleing tour groups and arguing families up to my armpits!
The hotel was an easy walk from Wangfujing subway station but Tiananmen East would have been just as close. The sign isn't obvious but I found it soon enough. A taxi would have know it was there I guess.
Checkin was the usual inefficient routine... got your passport... answer a question from someone else... answer the phone... talk to another person... pick up my passport... put it down... go back to the earlier customer waiting to check out... chaotic! For the price, I have to say I was a bit disappointed with my room... it was a 'basement' room, which meant windows up at the ceiling level, but I guess I should be grateful for even that. There is a restaurant but why eat there when there are plenty of better options nearby and their staff seemed more welcoming anyway.
Nothing really bad, but I guess I was just hoping for more. The room was clean enough... renovated in living memory. I guess the buildings themselves were relatively new for this ancient part of town. Bottled water was supplied as was tea and instant coffee sachets. Towels and bed lined a bit shabby and the room a bit damp in a hot an steamy Beijing Summer. Bed is the usual hard board type quite typical for China.
Overall, it was a room with a roof and four walls but little more. Perhaps the chain owners need to visit these properties more frequently.
