I was on a trip with my wife and kids to Beijing which was organised by the school. The plan was for full immersion in Chinese for the week with the kids going to local schools and activities with the parents in the afternoon.
What I did not bank on was an unpleasant hotel stay. Even though we were on a non-smoking floor, the room stank of cigarettes and people were happily walking by smoking, even in front of staff who said nothing.
The beds were hard as rocks but I am told that is the Beijing way. I normally don't go for massages but I had to have two on this trip!
The bathroom was smelly and moldy and the rooms were not properly cleaned up in the mornings after we left.
The door closed very fast, so fast in fact that my 6 year old son got his hand caught in the door!
The food was average at best and I tried it all being fairly adventurous with food (don't ask me to eat the deep fried scorpions though!). Though I am not a big fan of baked beans, you know you're in China when they're soya beans!
The service was OK once you got their attention. The building itself is very dated and really needs a facelift.
On the plus side the location is good and they gave free internet access even thought it was slow.
Overall I enjoyed my stay in Beijing and will probably go back again. The next time though, I will organise the trip myself, especially the hotel!
