“Great Hotel”
Reviewed January 11, 2012

We really liked this hotel. It is a pretty easy walk from the Temple of Heaven (5-10 min) Tienamen Square (20 min) and the Forbidden City. The breakfasts were good, if sometimes a little crowded. The front desk staff were wonderful, and very helpful. I would agree with some other posts, however, that taxi drivers had trouble finding it. I would reccomend printing out a google map in Chinese and bringing it with you.

We stayed here for 4 nights and the stay was simply awesome.. We enjoyed the hospitality, cleanliness of the room, free wireless internet, free breakfast which included both Continental and Chinese style breakfast. Language is usually a major problem in Beijing for non-Chinese speaking tourists, but the guys at the reception make it easy for you. The cafe on the 2nd floor had good choices for quick snack. The location was perfect, walkable distance to the Temple of Heaven. Easy to get a taxi.. Overall, no regrets staying here..

the staff were very helpful, room given was clean and very spacious with great view of temple. Breakfast was filling however it was the same fare day in day out - they have to change the variety and make the food more palatable

Excellent value for money tourist hotel with friendly and service minded staff. Reception desk helped us hire taxi for Great Wall and reserved tickets for Capital Museum using their personal ID - very helpful and smart, young English speaking staff. Free wireless in rooms and cafeteria style restaurant. In-hotel convenience store and ATM. Got free tea/coffee vouchers for all 4 people at check-in. Breakfast is free - Asian and Western style, nothing fancy, but good strong coffee. 15 min walk from subway, but many taxis in area. Fantastic Peking Duck restaurant nearby. Rooms clean and good housekeeping, glass bathroom wall illuminates entire room if bathroom light turned on. One of our rooms smelled of smoke. Excellent experience, love this hotel! Can't go wrong at this price.

It is a very comfortable place to stay. We had heard that taxi drivers cannot fine it easily, but our taxi driver did not have any problem. The rooms are clean, beds are comfortable. Breakfast was ok. The staff is friendly and was quite responsive whenever we asked for assistance.

We checked in to the hotel as arranged by the travel agent. The hotel does live up to its internationally known brand name - Holiday Inn. Express denotes a lower scale accommodation. However, we did not feel any significant difference with the standard Holiday Inn.

The hotel is located near Temple of Heaven but it is quite inconvenient unless you are willing to take taxis to your destinations. The nearest subway - Taoranting Station is about 20 minutes away on foot. If you do reach the station, then you can reach many destinations in Beijing by cheap rail. Unlike many previous comments by others on the difficulty to get taxis to and from the hotel, I found it very easy to get one. Just stand by the main Nanwei Road side and wave to taxis passing by (Plenty of them). If they are empty, they will stop by. Tell him the destination and confirm that he is willing to use meter. Then get in and you are on your way to your destinations. My trip from Beijing airport to the hotel costed around RMB130 due to heavy traffic upon arrival. Trip to Happy Valley costed RMB38. You can also get the cab to send you to Taoranting station for RM10 (Minimum charge as you get on the cab).

There are set lunch and dinner available at the first floor restaurant costing RMB35 each with rice, meat, soup and fruits. Breakfast is very simple with western and oriental choice. There are some free internet terminals available at the restaurant for guests. However, guests enjoy free internet in the room via wifi or wired broadband. That's a plus point for the hotel apart from its cleanliness and very helpful and cheerful staff. However, they do not help to call for taxis.

There is a convenient store next to the hotel and you can get almost everything basic there except fresh fruits. There are ample food shops near the hotel. No worries about food!

There is a slot-machine laundry on level 3 for the guests.

Overall, it is a good choice if you do not mind about location.

Room Tip: Try to ask for rooms near the lifts. Some rooms are too far off with more than 4 turns to reach.

The hotel itself is nice, clean and comfortable once there. I didn't have time for the breakfast as I had an early train to catch. The beds are a lot more comfortable than most Chinese beds and I live in China so I've slept on many hard beds in hotels. These beds are great! The tv is great but channel selection is to be execpted in a country like China. The location to the Temple of Heaven and TianAnMen is great as is the South Railway Station. (Very Close). The only downside is that taxi's can be difficult to get, although not impossible. The location is not well known by taxi's so have a mobile phone handy so you can call the hotel or at least have the phone # for the hotel handy so the taxi driver can call them for directly. However, when my driver called, he spoke Mandarin but the front desk worker spoke a local dialect he didn't understand. There is not hotel shuttle which was disappointing. But over all, I'll probably use this hotel again, especially if I plan to travel in and out of the South Railway Station. As for proximity to Metro station, it's not close. You have to take a taxi which will cost you about 11 RMB so not too bad.
