Stayed here on the first leg of our trip through Beijing and it was ideal. The price was very good, we haf no problem getting a triple room as 2 of our 3 group were female not wanting to be in a room on our own. Room was perfect size for our needs, we were using it as a base just to sleep and shower in.
WiFi was always working when we tried it. Selection of drinks available in the bar was not extensive but good quality. We were in walking distance to forbidden city and Tiananmen square which was ideal. The staff kindly suggested a trip to the mutianyu section of the great wall as we were looking for the least 'touristy' part and kindly arranged a private guide and car.
Would definitely stay here again!!

The hotel is located at walking distances from places you want to see and subway is not far away. Rooms are ok. Our booking included breakfast, but we had to start a little discussion to get them. The staff is polite but not really friendly. Even if I keep in mind the rooms are cheap, I would not stay there more than a night.

Room Tip: Note that they have rooms without any windows, so better ask when booking.

the location quite far from subway wang fu jin, about 20 minutes walk there, i was damn tired of walking and no idea where is the location, finally found it, it was at the end of the road. better take a bus just cost you RMB 0.40 (using IC card, if by cash only RMB 1 only, beter take bus). the hostel owner should recomend by bus instead of telling near to subway. it was so convenience to take a bus in beijing.

the room is small. i took standard no window. the bed no quality at all, you can feel the hard spring. really a bad image to me, i cant sleep well for 2 nights. this is really dissapointed.

the bathroom consider clean and comfortable.

wifi, the second day i can wifi anymore. no idea what happen.

breakfast. you have to wait quite sometime - 10-15 minutes. i think the cooker have to improve it. but the taste is good, do have Uk, america, europe style of breakfast for you to choose. too bad beverage is not included.

The only good thing about this hotel is the location. Rooms are dirty, damp and in need of repair. WiFi& internet is very slow and often not working. Breakfast is poor, I actually went round the corner to Jade Hotel and had a full breakfast and that was better value.

Room Tip: Check your room before paying.

We stayed there in our first leg and the location is perfect. Right next to the Forbidden City. Rooms aren't that great though, pretty damp and not that clean either. Reception staff were quite helpful and even organised a mini bus trip to Mutianyu. Wifi wasn't working all the time. Didn't try the restaurant as they didn't offer anything Chinese. On the whole, it was a stay which would easily fade away from the memory.
