“Overrated, Location goo, rest terrible”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

The reviews of this hotel is from the staff itself I think...
The location is perfect, only 10 minutes walk to the Forbidden City and Tianemen Square. In the middle of a shopping area with big shops but also little Chinese shops, lots of places to eat etc. and still quiet during the nights. Really in the hutong. There is wireless internet in the hotel. The courtyard is nice but not open, so you sit inside (good in the winter).
The room we had, had no windows, was very small and we almost had to sit on the toilet to shower!! The showerhead was just above the toiletseat.
The matrasses are made of wood, very hard!!!
They didn't clean our room in all the days we were there. The room had mould all over the walls up to 1 meter, the room smelled dampy and mouldy and the wallpaper was coming of the walls because of the mould and there was no window to open.
Some of the staff speaks English, some don't, which is quite a hassle. The staff isn't very friendly at all the time.
So, I think there are better hotels for this price in Beijing (no elevator!). They also rent rooms by the hour..........

OK, now w egot this hotel for just 28 euros on booking.com, we booked primarily for location which is just 5 minute walk from Tian anmen Square and the nearest metro station is even nearer.
The hotel is down a traditional chinese alley but just a 1 minute walk leads you onto the pedestrianised Qianmen Street.
There are lots of local shops and restaurants nearby but to be honest we steered clear of most as they double the cost of everything for foreigners against the chinese tourists who are also there.
The room was "compact" but reasonably clean and the shower "room" worked but was a little run down although all toiletries were replenished daily!
There were 2 staff who spoke good english and were willing to aid with anything from printing paperwork to writing adresses in chinese.
Ideal for a quick stop but for a longer stay pay more.

Room Tip: Pay more, go for the deluxe, like any hotel!!
