I found the staff at the Hotel were fairly helpful and even with limited English, they tried very hard. The rooms were clean and overall fine, they just had some small unique qualities. Such as a bathroom door that is also the shower door. Many of the rooms look into a common courtyard and therefor if you want a view of the city you have have to try and request one. Also some rooms had windows that do not open at all. In these rooms the temperature can get really warm, especially when the building has turned off the A/C because the summer is over.

I was a bit anxious about booking this hotel, as a few reviews rated it poorly. I can only assume they had a dodgy pint, or something, as I think it is everything it sets out to be.
The staff are very friendly, and really try to help. The spoken English is limited to a few staff members, but I strongly believe it's my problem, not theirs!
The rooms are clean; the maids do a great job very thoroughly; they even retrieved my old toothbrush that I threw away and left it on the side for me!! (I threw it away again, and they left it that time...) There is tea and coffee making facility, and shower gel of a good quality provided, as well as new toothbrushes, combs, soap etc. Towels have been changed every day, despite my green efforts at hanging them back up; they also change the duvet cover every couple of nights.
The hotel has free wireless internet access in all rooms as well as the lobby, and it is good enough to support Apple's Facetime calling, so I think that is a real bonus. The room itself is fine; some have reported their room being bordering on 'tired' and I can see their point, but it hasn't worried me, especially. Will need updating in the next couple of years I guess.
My only criticism would be that the breakfast choices are pretty limited, but generous in quantity and what IS available is perfectly acceptable quality.
I am attending the ICS annual conference at the CNCC. In an ideal world, I would pay the £190 per night and stay at the Intercontinental...but at £35 per night this is great value. It is about 20-30 minutes walk up through Olympic Park to CNCC, but the subway is 3 minutes walk, and is better than London's tube, and CHEAP!! (Try 20p for any journey!! I bought the travel card to swipe in like London's Oyster card, rather than buy a ticket each time. That costs £2 refundable deposit, and then 20p per journey of any length). You can easily get the subway to the centre of town, to see the sights, and to get the Airport Express. That said, a taxi from the airport cost £38 with 4 suitcases and 2 adults, so I thought that was better than struggling.

Room tip: I had a room facing the atrium and its fine. Someone else had a room facing the park, and were disturbed by workmen digging.

Istayed a couple of nights in this hotel in april 2012. compared with other hotels of the holiday inn express chain in beijing it is slightly cheaper. the rooms are actually more spacious than in the other hotels, but somehow i had an youth hostel impression as the furnitures in the room seemed to be put in the room as they had no other place to put them. the location is only good if you're in beijing with a car and know where you want to go. the setting at the hotel is rather strange but once you're in it is more or less a reliable budget stay as expected from this hotel chain.

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.

Room tip: Look for the ornate gateway to the shopping center at the given address and go down that driveway (there's a gate station, but they let people through).

I have just returned from a 7 night stay here whilst attending a conference at the CNCC between 17th-21st Sept. The hotel offered special rates associated with the conference (breakfast included) so I cannot comment on the value for money as this was no doubt a special deal. You did have the option of paying more for a 'room with a view' which I did not opt for. The room facing the inner court do suffer from an 'echo effect' as the middle of the hotel is a hollow shaft (see photos on this site). Upon arrival there was some confusion due to new staff and poor english. They tried to make me leave a 1000 RMB deposit for possible laundry charges, whereas a colleague checking in next to me wasn't asked for any such deposit. As this would have used up what I had just converted at the airport they then tried to drop it to 700RMB. I wasn't impressed so flatly refused to leave any deposit as I had already paid for the room with my credit card months beforehand. Apart from this the stay was satisfactory. The breakfast buffet was adequate (both western and Asian choices) with a nice outside area to eat it. The room was clean with a great shower cubicle. Free water and coffee in the room (although no fridge). I should warn buisness travellers that you shouldn't expect a fast connection to download files at speed once there as the server does become overloaded at times but you can e-mail, etc. (High-speed china is not High-speed Europe). Easy access to the metro line and for getting around Beijing.

Room tip: Maybe pay for a room facing the city if you have the budget
