I am writing this review from my room in the hotel. Like many others here I ended up stranded in Beijing overnight and this is the hotel that the airline sent us all to. If you are considering this for a vacation stay, I would say find something more convenient unless your business includes something near here, of which there is nothing.
I asked a woman at the front desk where there was a mall nearby. She said "Ah, nothing near." This is true. The ride from the airport took about 20 minutes, and judging by the distance from here to the next point of interest, it would take you a good 40 minutes by taxi to get to anything of interest, other than the airport.
The hotel itself is nice enough. Those who describe it as "dirty" are exagerrating. The hard to clean spots (like the window sill nooks and crannies, and the shower door rails) are pretty dingy, but beyond that, everything is acceptably clean. So other than the fact that you will probably never choose this hotel, but rather end up here by the airline's choice, it is a nice enough place to stay. The TV does have one English language channel. I think all the rooms are smoking rooms.
I had the complimentary breakfast and I think it was fine. It was pretty standard hotel buffet quality food, much of which I didn't recognize. The "orange juice", though, appears to be Tang, and it is served hot.
Most of the staff seems to speak passable English, and after a couple of back-and-forths, you should be able to find what you want. Which, if it includes anything outside the hotel, is nothing.
This hotel's sole reason for existence seems to be to warehouse stranded travelers for the night. There really is literally no other reason to be in this place. The one thing of interest you can do at this hotel is take the shuttle back to the airport.
