“Big contrast between rooms and service in the main building”
Reviewed October 17, 2013 via mobile

We've been five days in the hotel. The rooms in the executive floor are very nice. Yet the service is not at the standards of a five star hotel. The Buffet in the morning is far away from the quality of 5 stars hotels we visited in the South of China. Room service also has its problems. Moreover make sure to be in the main building, since we heard of creepy stories from the other buildings. Technology is not a strength of the hotel. Wi Fi is absent and TV only has Chinese channels and BBC. Use of computers is NOT free of charge even for executives.

Stayed October 2013

This hotel was built in the 1950's for Soviet advisors in China, and some of this large complex still capture this grandiose history. Overall, the hotel is good but not great. The complementary breakfast and the banquet both were quite good. (We were attending a conference.) Note that the location is not optimal for most tourist attractions.

Great hotel. Clean & tidy & very western (bathroom etc). Amazing house keeping service. Very clean & modern, plus the comfy bed is a bonus. Will stay here again on buisness. Great supermarket with on 5mins walk plus very local & yum restrants. Would stay here again. Nice Bfast buffet as well.

Not super close to the centre of the city but there is a subway very close buy.

The trip from Beijing airport to this hotel took me approximately 1 hour and cost around RMB100. Very clean, spacious and beautifully decorated room! Definitely a good stay here as this hotel is just 100m walk away from the BJMTR which is the subway of Beijing. Not a cheap hotel and you get what you paid for.
