Reviewed December 5, 2013

Very few staff - not even senior management - could understand my simplest questions or requests. The air conditioner only works on heating in winter but there are no instructions for the room controls making them appear to enable both heating and cooling. The pool is very nice and little used but the fitness room apparently is closed indefinitely - contrary to the hyped advertising.
Rooms have cable internet but no wifi which is only available in the restaurant and lobby,

I really enjoyed my stay in Vision hotel. and for sure i return there again and for sure i recommend it to my colleagues. i stayed two days in Bejing for business. when i travel for businees, i need very comfortable and clean place to stay cause my schedule is tight and this hotel indeed met my expectations. i do not know if it was just built or recently renovated that everything looked new and shiny clean. staff were very polite and knew good Egnlish. taxi was available at shortest time. i stayed in 18th floor and enjoyed the view. hotel is located in a quiet area and somehow away from traffic. now let me talk about room. considering the price, it was excellent. lots of mirrors which is my favorite! very comfortable bathroom with separte shower and bath. furniture were new and clean. air conditioner with heat systme on; i spent some of previous stays in freezing or cold temprature and was so happy there is air conditioner i can control the temp.
3rd time to Beijing and Haidian district, i can say this was the best 4star hotel i experienced

Room Tip: good for businees trips in Haidian District. if you like view and privacy, choose higher floors

This would have gotten a higher rating except for one problem - air conditioning, or the lack thereof. I visited in mid-October, and the outside temperatures were comfortably cool, but my room ranged between 25-26 degrees Celius my entire stay. When I inquired, they told me the air conditioning was off for the fall, and I should open a window. I did open the one window that one could, and it opened about 6-7 inches (pushing out diagonally), but that never cooled the room very much. All other aspects of the hotel are very good; spacious and clean rooms, decent English speaking when needed, good laundry service, wonderful breakfast buffet (both Western and Chinese style). Free wi-fi service is another plus. Perhaps in the summer, when the air conditioning is on, this would be a terrific hotel - and perhaps also okay in the winter with adequate heat. But it was very hard to sleep comfortably in the room at this temperature.

I stayed in that hotel for 10 nights so I think I got to know it quite well. For me it was very well located, as I had a conference at the Beihang University next door. The hotel is very nice and clean. My room was very big and comfortable. Bathroom was great! Spacious and quite luxurious really. The only problem that I had was that the AC didn't work very well so sometimes nights were just to hot. Wifi was also not working great but there was a high speed Internet cable in the room so it was ok. Most of the staff indeed did not speak English but they did their best to be helpful. The rate for this class of a hotel was very low and affordable and it included breakfast, which was very nice. you had your typical Chinese breakfast as well as western breakfast. Overall, I had a very pleasant stay in this hotel.

I have stayed in this hotel for two weeks for a business trip. My room is clean, well decorated and very spacious. The provisions in the room is adequate and generally handy. The only issue is that the network connection is via a internet cable, so you need to bring along your travel router to set up your private WiFi network. The breakfast is up to the standard with sufficient choices for my long stay. I haven't tried the gym and the swimming pool, but my colleagues reflected that they are also not bad.

This hotel locates between the 3rd and 4th ring of Beijing, close to the two famous universities, Peking University and Tsinghua University, as well as a number of popular tourist spots over the northwestern part of Beijing. The subway station is just 5 minutes walk from the hotel, so you can travel to most busy districts of the city within an hour. This is important as the traffic congestions in Beijing are very serious nowadays.

In short, this is a very good hotel for visiting Beijing, specially the universities nearby.

Room Tip: Bring along your travel router for WiFi connection.

Suggested by the Conference organizers due to the closeness to Beijing University, I really appreciated the luxury of the environment, the hotel facilities and the kindness of employment. English speaking at reception and free wifi connection in the whole building. Excellent!

This is a fine hotel that suffers from, yet is benefited by, its location. While perfectly suited to those on University business, this hotel, and this district, is FAR from most tourist attractions. The subway is nearby but count on at least a half-hour to anyplace of interest.

The restaurants are capable, the cleanliness is excellent, and the front desk/bell staff are earnest. English is spoken but not always fluently.

The room is large, comfortable, and clean. The hotel could, however, upgrade its WIFI so it reaches the room and is of modern bandwidth and speed.
