This is a terrific hotel in a great location and fantastic value. The rooms are well-appointed, though aging a quickly, probably due to the environment and humidity. It's right at the junction of two subway lines, which is a fantastic convenience, while also being within easy walking distance of the Olympic Park. There's a decent selection of restaurants nearby, a shopping center, an upscale tea house, and a wonderful Cultural Park. The breakfast has something for everyone, with a beautiful patio overlooking the Cultural Park -- often the most serene and relaxing moment of the day! However, it was quite difficult to locate the hotel -- it is located down the driveway of the China Town Shopping Center, and there is no sign on Minzuyuan Road, so our taxi driver was very confused (compounding the difficulty of not speaking Chinese). The other problem is that many of the staff barely speak English, though this is probably the case at most hotels. This was one of the quietest hotels I've been in, though that depends a lot on the other guests, but I was amazed at how quiet the rooms are. There were almost no children.
