This hotel is probably one of my favs in Beijing if not China. If you are into art, minimalist design, and chic vibe then this is worth considering. Location is great right in the heart of Sanlitun next to the Village which if full of some of the city's best F&B trendy scene. Down the street are the embassies. If you plan to hang out in Sanlitun a lot then this is the one hotel you should consider especially considering how hard it is to get taxis in the city. The service is very top notch as it is run by Swire group which is known for good service and quality.

- pricier than your typical hotel, but not too bad compared to the 5 stars
- my room was quiet but I heard some rooms facing the street can be noisy
- no good loyalty program. if you get a discounted rate then no points at all
Overall great for single travelers or young couples as this is a very hipster type of hotel. It will enhance your experience as it has an Asian zen spin to its design so you feel like you are living in Beijing style. Also great for business travelers if the location fits your biz or you want don't want to go too far away from your hotel with good F&B options.
