This hotel is exactly what is says on the tin. I stayed there for 8 days on a business trip.
It is rather unassuming from the outside (and beware as can be difficult to spot), but once inside it is nice enough.
It is probably not my best choice if I was a tourist in Beijing, although it is close to a subway station, so that is a plus as it is only a few minutes walk. There are also some shops and restaurants nearby, although they are mostly frequented by locals, so it depends how comfortable you are doing that sort of thing.
Rooms are standard (or maybe I was just in a very standard room). Bed is very comfortable and you get all the expected amenities such as TV, iron and basic toiletries. I really struggled with the size of the wardrobe, the safe was in the way, so I could only manage to hang about 3 items up before I ran out of room, not ideal on an 8 day business trip as I wanted to hang things up straight away to stop them getting creased. This is not a unique problem to my room, my colleague, who was in a different room on a different floor, suffered from the same issue.
Food is nice enough, and the staff is friendly.
Beware they are still charging for wifi though, in this day and age! And it is rather slow.
I would recommend this hotel for business travellers, but I would advise the management to sort the Internet out.
