Situated in the back of a residential area, this hotel is ideal for those who want an ordinary Beijinger touch. I booked a deluxe queen room, modern decor but not trendy or chic, it's on the first floor and opposite my window was the hotel staff's locker room!! The curtains had to be closed all day!
The bed was on a raised platform which was kinda weird, and the central heating in the room couldn't be turned off. Room temperature was too high that made me felt uncomfortable. The courtyard was lovely and relaxing. Location is good, not hard to find, 10min walk to subway station.
NO FREE breakfast, you pay 10 yuan at the front desk and get a brown-bagged mix of banana, packaged milk, packaged congee, etc. Nutritious, light, but not tasty.
Considering the relatively low room price, it's a good hotel. But if you are not on a budget, don't choose this one. I should have checked out room photos before i go.
