“Good Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

We stayed here for three nights.We were in a group of 14 & had 7 rooms.Hotel is close to excellent shopping areas.Business centre has only one computer. Reception staff not much help in using this computer. Our room was on 4th.floor a Superior Room. It was large & modern. Bathroom was modern & large enough.Room was clean except for a little mould build-up at shower door entrance. We enjoyed our stay, in a quiet room and loved the location. I was not feeling well & dizzy when a taxi driver charged me the equivalent of US$60 in Chinese currency for a US$4 trip. Our friends in another room had a US$30 taxi overcharge. I strongly recommend getting the taxi ordered by the Novotel porters to avoid this problem (we hailed ours on the street). Another of our friends had a birthday during our stay & despite nobody mentioning this to the hotel staff, a very efficient reception staff-member must have noticed the DOB on his passport & the hotel delivered a small cake to his room. He was very touched by this gesture. I recommend this hotel.

Location is pretty good as one train stop from Tiananmen Square and about a 15 min walk from wangfujing st which is the main shopping area. The rooms were big. I believe we had a superior room. I'm not fussy where I stay as long as its convenient, clean and safe and this was all three. Pretty well priced too. Breakfast was also alright. Definitely had worse. Always had fresh fruit, toast, croissants, bacon and omelettes. Great restaurant 2 mins walk away called Green Tea restaurant.

The hotel is good with good english speaking staff. The location is good right opposite the metro station and becomes easy to commute. There is plenty of shopping areas nearby with Wangfujing street about 15 minutes walk.
The regular rooms are very small and packed with no windows and the superior rooms are similarly sized with window.

Room Tip: I would recommend everyone to go for superior room as the standard rooms does not have windows.

Actually, me & my family with kids stayed in this hotel in June 2011 (not Oct 212).
Location was good with the metro just below this hotel.
Hotel room was nice & staff was friendly.
We'll go back to the same hotel again in future.

Stay for 8 nights during a business trip.
The hotel was located right at the center of the capital with walkable distance to the Tienanmen Square. The subway was only 10 seconds from the lobby.
My stay was upgraded to the executive floor which the room had 2 floors, the main advantage was to access the executive lounge which separate you from the majority of customers for breakfast area (though with relatively fewer choices when compare to that at the lobby which is also accessible, much quieter at the lounge) and quick check-in and check-out service.
Catching taxi in Beijing was quite troublesome while the staff were very helpful in trying to get you one.
Overall good value for money

Wasn't too sure about this hotel as we arrived at 11.30am from a long flight from London and weren't allowed to check in to the room until 2pm. After that, everything was great, however. Especially liked that an early riser breakfast was available from 4am (could have a lot of items although some were cold) as we had a flight to catch to Tokyo. Normal breakfast starts at 6am and is sumptuous with Chinese, English and Continental food on offer plus a variety of bread, fruits and cakes. TV had several English channels. Room was large. Wifi was available in room although a little slow. Room had coffee and tea making facilities. Location-wise, it's great being about half way between temple of heaven, tiananmen and wangfujing (Beijing's main shopping district). There are 2 department stores in the block opposite. The department store on the left side of the street has a great range of restaurants. Outside the hotel is Chongwenmen metro, which starts at 5am and is on the line to Dongzhimen, where you can pick up the airport express. It's also only about 5 stops from yanganli where the silk market is. I last visited Beijing in 2008, since when several metro lines have been built, with number of metro lines due to double again by 2020.

Room Tip: 2 of the 5 floors are non-smoking
