“Huge Chinese Hotel”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Staued here for 3 nights in january. Value for money with breakfast included. Good variety for breakfast,. Stayed in Tower B which needs a makeover as carpets are really old and dirty. Staff speal english but not too helpfull. Good location being walking distance to most attractions and near metro. Bathrooms also needs a facelift!!

Beijing overall was fantastic! This hotel is a 10 min walk from the train station and the square. Also very close to li quan. The staff cleaned the hotel every morning. The breakfast is pricey but well worth it! The resturant on the top floor has an amazing view but terrible food. Overall great price for location and service.

Stayed there for 2 nights. It is in an excellent location for travelers. The metro station is near at the corner of the hotel. The Tiananmen Square is very close to the hotel including the Forbidden City Palace. The interior of the hotel is very lucrative. The reception personnel are co-operative and good in English. I have seen many travelers from EU/North America there. It’s a friendly hotel. The rooms seems old, but have never felt of anything shortage. Breakfast and meals were good enough. You will get the best tour guides from the hotel. I took one day tour from them and was so pleased to have their services. I recommend this hotel with all the reasons to stay specially if you have definite plan to explore Beijing.

Room Tip: There were two tower buildings. I have stayed in tower A. It was very good and quieter.

This hotel is not new, but is aging gracefully. We were lucky to have been upgraded to a nice corner suite. Amenities, like every good hotel in China, are excellent. While the room was a bit too warm, we were able to open the window. The bathroom was very nice, including a separate glassed in shower and bidet. There was, however, a noxious sewer-like smell coming from the bathroom vent which was quite strange in such a lovely bathroom. We were not able to judge the expansive fitness and pool facilities, as these were all closed off the communist party meetings while we were there! Beds were not the softest, like most hotels in China.... but we were not uncomfortable.

Room Tip: There is apparently a newer tower, which may have newer rooms

Hotel is in a good location... within a short walk to Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City. Walk to Tiananmen square talks about 20-30 minutes depending on individuals.
Hotel is big and lobby is spacious. Checking was pretty fast. Rooms are so so - not very clean and interior fittings are old. Was given room at the east wing and presumed rooms on this wing will be catering to tourist groups and guests paying cheaper room rates. Restaurant food is average and costly. Spa is pretty nice and cosy, but charges higher than outside for a foot reflexology.
Will stay again if the rates are reasonable because of the good location!

It's a middle-aged hotel. But it's holding up pretty well. Not bright, new, and shiny. But not depressingly drab, old, and worn out, either.

Cons: I wish the air conditioning worked a bit better. Couldn't get the room quite as cool as I wanted it. And the fitness center is poor (a couple stationary bikes and treadmills, and that's about it. No free weights at all).

Pros: For about US $100/night we got a decent sized, and decently appointed room, in a decent location (within walking distance of Tiananmen Square, and less than 10 mins walk to a subway station). For fitness, they've got a fairly big swimming pool, which works well for swimming laps.

Also, there's some very nice Asian arts and crafts decorating the hotel. I enjoyed the Asian ambience it provides.

Overall: Wouldn't rate this as a must-stay. But I didn't find any reason to avoid it, either. Btw, I'm an English only speaker, and that was never an issue. Many of the staff speak English quite well.

This hotel has 2 buildings and we were checked in at the 2nd building(the building on the right when entering the main entrance). Rooms are quite big and the beds are comfortable. Breakfast buffet at the chinese restaurant at the lobby is superb. Location is so-so, near a lot of government offices and 10 minutes walk to tiananmen square. Overall, im satisfied with my stay
