I stayed at this hotel for eight nights in total, We had a two bedroom apartment. The apartment was very spacious with two bathrooms. The Kitchen was fully equipped including a washing machine and dryer. The only thing it lacked was a tea towel / wash cloth. Room was made up spotlessly every day.
Staff at front desk spoke English and could help up with directions, booking a taxi etc Restaurant in the hotel does a very average breakfast - everything was cold. But the dinner was great with some really nice wines on offer. Starbucks is right outside the front door although coffee was so so.
Gym & Tranquility room (with massage chairs) were fab! Just be aware the spas (which were great) were in the female and male change rooms so if you are a couple you can't have a spa together which I found a little dissapointing.
Only negative points would be the Female spa didn't work for a couple of days we were there which spoilt it a little as thats one of the reasons we booked the hotel and as the hotel is relatively new taxi's had no idea where it was. The hotel has a great map thats points out where it is - remember to take this with you everyday!!!
Location isn't that great however they do have a comp shuttle bus that drops you near the silk road markets ( A MUST) and to get anywhere in Beijing you just need to jump in a taxi which only ever costs AU$3 -$5.
