This hotel is OK. But for the price, it was the best we could find. Our first night we arrived at 8pm and even with a prior booking.com booking they said they only had one room available and needed to clean it. We couldn't get into our room until 9pm. That room had a round bed that was too small for my husband and I. We left the city for three days on the Great Wall. When we came back we were checked in right at 2pm, which was great, but the room had mold on the walls. There were no other rooms available, but they told us we could switch in the morning. We did switch in the morning into a very nice room on the first floor with a window, no mold, and and good internet (wired) in the room. The third night is a charm here, I guess.
Good location about two minutes from the night markets and a 15 minute walk to Tian' Anmen Square or the Forbidden City. Also just a five minute walk to Wanfujing shopping area/ pedestrian street. Would have liked if it was a bit closer to a subway stop, but other than that happy with the location.
