We stayed at the Liaoning International Hotel during our 5 days tour of Imperial Beijing in March 2012.
We were pre-checked at this hotel by our tour agency, so obtained our keys and proceeded to our room immediately without the usual hassle of registering at the front desk. The hotel lobby and surrounding is pleasant and corridors to our room foyer well lighted up. Our room is excellent with all the usual amenities of an international hotel - toiletries and complimentary tea/coffee/bottled water (I was informed before our departure to Beijing, that this local hotel is rated 5-stars according to hotel rating standards in China, so did not expect the grandeur of an international hotel). I was tickled pink in noticing that the hotel include a large box of condoms for sale to hotel guest which was prominently displayed at the bedside table. Also, you may want to draw the blinds in the bathroom, which has a glass partition wall facing the bed and TV... I guess some hotel guess enjoy watching TV while having a soak in the bath tub.
Breakfast is served at the coffee shop on the ground level... service starts at 6:30am and includes self-served buffet Chinese and Western meals. However, eggs are fried only one style...i.e. the Chinese chef's choice... the cooks don't understand what is "sunny side up" or "over easy" for that matter... so I could not imagine anyone requesting for "scrambled eggs". Another thing to note, expect a stranger, two or three if you are unlucky (referring to local Chinese hotel guests staying at the hotel to plonked in any minute at your table while you are enjoying your breakfast... none of these local hotel guests bother to ask whether they can share your table!... just pretend these are invisible guest about in the coffee shop.
Conclusion, we had an enjoyable stay at the Liaoning International Hotel despite the queer local cultural behaviors
