“Need some serious renovation”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Though it is comfy hotel, it really needs renovation to make itself more likable. My overall experience was great and staff was really courteous when it comes to resolving the issues. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. They need to change the tv to a flat screen. No wireless internet though only wired. The hotel is right next to Hard Rock Cafe and to a 24hr Chinese restaurant. There is a Starbucks across the hotel in a building. If you are traveling on a budget & at the same time need a 4 star experience, this hotel won't disappoint you.

Room Tip: Ask them to get you the room close to elevators. Otherwise you have to walk a lot....

Worn and dirty - think the hotel might have good bones, but the skin is sure showing its age. LOTS of smoking rooms and some areas of the building really smell (smoke, stale water...)

Good value for a points stay, but you get what you pay for. For a business stay - you don't get what you pay for - it was expensive for the quality of the property.

Room Tip: Make sure you insist not only for a non-smoking room if you do not smoke, but a non-smoking floor...

Many reviewers look for cheap China accomadation but pay a little more. Stayed at the Club FloorSheration Great Wall Hotel early October for business. Yes the hotel is a little Old but we attended the Coal Show nearby and were very happy Da

After reading all the bad reviews prior to my trip, I was quite nervous before getting to the hotel. I stayed 3 nights at this hotel as part of my guided tour package. My hotel room turned out to be very clean and didn't have any bad smell that the other reviewers mentioned. My room was also very spacious and the hotel staff that I talked to were all very polite. The hotel is a 3 min taxi ride from Sanlitun which is a nice area for dinner.

On a recent trip to China, I booked this hotel room for three nights as our home base while in Beijing using Starwood points. The hotel was comfortable with nice beds and free bottled water, which was great as I was recommend not to drink the water. While the room was very nice, there were some interesting stains on the hallway carpet and you could hear the night entertainment even 7 floors up, so was very glad we did not have a room by the elevator. Also, we could not control the temperature in the room as the A/C was off, so had to open our window to the lovely Beijing night air with its smog and traffic horns. While there was nothing wrong with the room, I am not sure I would have paid the price for it, if I didn't have points.

Room Tip: Stay away from the elevator - can hear the nightly entertainment even 7 floors up.

It is at best a 2 star hotel. Thought the lobby of the hotel is great, the rooms seems to have come from a movie filmed in the 80´s. Just as a short example the TV was the old models, the carpet was warned off, the bathroom was stained.
Overall, it was not bad, but since they charge you as a 5 start hotel, and is old, decrepit, outdated, dirty thought good size.
Conveniently located

This is an older hotel, but is really a neat place to visit. I only stayed one night however I was impressed with the staff. Everyone was very helpful and courteous. The breakfast buffet was very good. It is close to the subway system which makes it fairly easy to get around in Beijing. I would stay here again.
