I just had a three night stay in this hotel whilst I was in Beijing on business. The location is good, being close to many embassies and shopping markets, and reasonable close to Dongzhimen metro station and airport express link.
The hotel itself was very good with well fitted out comfortable rooms. There is also free wifi and breakfast, although the breakfast was more orientated to Chinese guests than Westerners (there was no muesli or cereals of any kind). The staff were also friendly and helpful.
I would have given the hotel top score, but I have marked them down because of their airport shuttle bus. The wording on their website is "You can be at Holiday Inn Express Beijing Dongzhimen in minutes from Beijing Capital International Airport. Simply look out for the shuttle bus on airport", which indicates that there is a bus from the airport to the hotel. This isn't the case - the bus only runs for two hours each day to the airport express station, which isn't ideal if you have lots of baggage. I also emailed the hotel twice in advance to ask them where to go in the airport to get the bus, but didn't receive any reply to either email.
