“Great value, great rooms”
Reviewed February 18, 2011

The hotel is a bit far from touristic spots, but it's Beijing! Taxi fare is quite cheap. For the price of a good european hostel you can stay at a 5-star, authentic chinese hotel. The rooms are new and huge. The bed is perfect. But the bathroom is the best part: great shower, tube and towels. Really, I thought it would cost two or three times more. Breakfast buffet includes both American and Chinese options - and most of the Chinese options are great. You may find it difficult to communicate with some employees (waiters, maintanance), cause many of them can't speak English. But the people on the desk speak English quite well and are avaliable to help.

I stayed here in mar 2010- it was used as a conference centre during the Beijing Olympics.
Very nice hotel with all modern amenities- dining restaurant, huge lobby, free wifi (think there is also wired laptop internet access in the rooms but you may need to carry your USB adapters) Location is nice- on a broad boulevard a little away from the touristy things but one can walk to the Olympic park or even to the Olympic swimming pool (the cube) if you feel like. Some convenience stores and dining options are available in the vicinity- about 100 metres away to the right of the hotel main entrance.
The hotel employees were helpful and speak English well.
The room was quite large- nice beds, separate large desk for writing, internet access. Bathrooms were very luxurious- a huge tub and a separate shower.

Finding the hotel from the airport was probably the biggest problem. We wasted from 20 - 30 minutes trying to get a cab driver that knew where the hotel was or even heard of it. My wife is Chinese, so there was no language barrier on this issue. The hotel itself was very nice inside. The room was clean. I was impressed with the touch screens for turning on the lights. Very modern and classy room. Well worth the approx $100 U.S. price we paid for one night. Nice "westerner" style hotel. We also ate breakfast downstairs. Lots of choices for the buffet breakfast. Breakfast wasn't free. I paid after eating, but then when paying my final bill, I was charged again. Thankfully I had a receipt to prove I had already paid for the breakfast. The matter was resolved. The hotel does seem out of the way as I had previously read. But, I would stay there again. A week later we stayed at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Our room at the Gehua New Century Hotel was way nicer than the MGM Grand!

Sparkling new hotel with excellent rooms, huge bathrooms with tubs. Great buffet breakfast and comfortable lounge area. But it's way too far from anything. My third trip to Beijing, and I'd still stay at a place like the Novotel near Wangfujing. You want to go downstairs and walk around an interesting neighborhood and not have to take a taxi to get anywhere. Since it was built for journalists during the Olympics I'd expected a great pool and fitness center. None.

This hotel was built as the media lodging for the 2008 Olympics. Luxurious, roomy, very modern accommodations with a wrap around desk fitted with internet access, huge marble bathroom with glass shower and large soaking tub, high tech amenities, beautiful appointments, mirrored bar, large flat screen television on wall, chaise lounge and wonderful duvets. It is within walking distance of the Olympic venue. The only minor inconvenience was the lack of air conditioning due to the fact that the government will not allow air until May 1. Breakfast was included and was superb - either Western or Chinese. Service was also excellent.

This is a Chinese-owned hotel, very clean and conveniently located, They serve a choice of Chinese or Western breakfast. I enjoyed my stay there. They didn't frown upon staying there out of wedlock,- apparently a lot of Chinese hotels do ! The hotel stay was arranged for me/us by a wonderful date I met through a dating service.
