Ok, this is rated number one on trip advisor. I disagree. it is a good hotel, yes. But number 1 NO way.
friendly staff,, great door men and bell hops. good pre trip communication via internet. good restaurants nearby.
but, some of the bad things. small rooms, not a great location, you have an 40 minute hike to forbidden city., they would not let 2 people stay in a single room. cold food for breakfast.. I had a leaky sink in bathroom, drained on the floor, the refrigerator did not work first night, spoiling food.
I maybe would stay here again and I might recommend this place also. but it is not number 1. I can not believe this rating. too many nicer hotels in Beijing than to rate this number 1. No parking available. taxi has a hard time finding this place. Not to close to subway line.
