“Decent Place for Business”
Reviewed April 17, 2008

This hotel is very centrally located for business travellers, very near to the Kerry Center and adjacent to the China World complex. It is also walking distance to the Pearl Market/Silk Street shopping area.

The rooms are comfortable and a decent size. They could be bigger, but I'm not going to complain about that. Several restaurants on site and you can walk through the China World Mall to the China World Hotel and eat at their restaurants as well. The buffet restaurant on site is OK--fine for breakfast. They have quite a nice selection of eggs, pancakes, sausage, bacon, cereals, etc.

Staff are very friendly and acommodating. They all go out of their way to say good day and greet you when you enter the hotel.

Exercise facilities are fine, but not outstanding. Several treadmills, some bikes and a full set of Cybex machines for weight work-outs. There is a full sauna as well. I believe the hotel has a spa/massage service, but I did not take advantage of it.

Overall, for the rates, I don't think you can do much better in Beijing.

My client in Beijing recomended the hotel and I am glad they did. The room was what you would expect for a nice hotel and had a very nice bathroom. They had a good selection of international channels available in English, French, Spanish, German and of course Chinese.

They have two resturants and one bar in the hotel but there are two other hotels within walking distance that are owned by the same company and allow you to sign meals to your room.

The staff was incredibly friendly and were always available.

The hotel is located near the SouthEast part of town which makes it convenient to get to the Business Development Area (BDA) and also close to the city center for access to the forbidden city and Tienamen Square. There is always a line of available taxis right outside the entrance at all hours.

Me and girlfriend went to Beijing, mainly to travel and see those magificant histroical monumnets in Beijing.
Hotel is well manager by Shangri La group, so you do expect good manner staff, good rooms. The location is good good.
just 5 mins walk to a SOHO properties, great place to spend time in.
Nothing to compare about, unless you are looking a hotel with more style and taste.

  • Liked — location and good servign staff

This hotel is in a great location, right in the middle of business district, above a great shopping mall, with a subway station that allow me to travel all over the city. Taxi is very cheap also. There is a shuttle bus from the airport although it may take some patience to know which airport bus to take and where to get off. The chinese name of the hotel sounds like "Quao-mao" . Saying that to the bus or taxi driver will help you get to the hotel easier.

The staff is super friendly, and very attentive. I always feel very welcome in this hotel. The ratio of hotel staff to customer is amzaingly high. If you enjoy being pampered, this is the place to consider.

The room size is adequate, and the room are always clean.

There are some thoughts to share here though.
(1) The gym (free) is located in China World Hotel nearby. You would have to walk to the shopping mall to get to the gym. It can be kind of inconvenient for some. The gym is WOW nice, so it is worth the walk, I think,
(2) The hotel may want to consider upgrading to flat-screen TV.
(3) The bathroom floor is very slippery when wet. So be very careful, Hotel should really consider replacing them in any upcoming remodel efforts.
(4) There is construction nearby at this time, and can be noisy during some days. If you need to sleep during the day time, you may want to book another hotel at this time.

Other the minor items above, this is a great hotel. I definitely would stay here in the future because of the great location and super service.

Excellent service, staff seemed very eager to please.
Varied choice of both continental & asian breakfast.
Wasn't too impressed by 'the Oriental' restuarant.
We tried a full body massage which was nice.
Only drawback was the construction site across the road.

Traders is a comfortable and well-located hotel for business travelers. Beijing hotel prices continue to increase, but Traders remains a good value, especially compared to its sister hotels in the same area (Kerry Centre and China World) which are posh but at a price. Traders' rooms are small but adequate, the hotel staff are pleasant and helpful, and the location in the World Trade Center makes it easy to shop (also within walking distance of the silk market) or take public transportation if you're daring enough. It is also a short ride to the main train station. I stay at Traders most times I pass through Beijing.

  • Liked — Great value for the area

I spent 2 nights at this hotel on my wa to other locations in China. This is a fantastic Hotel, the staff are friendly at room are nice and clean. Just a little advise for new travellers to Beijing - English is not amazingly popular here. On arrival I showed a taxi driver the address of my hotel, but as it was written in english he didnt have a clue. I had to phone the hotel from my mobile and then pass over the phone to the driver so he would know where to go. The rest of the trip wasn't too bad as I met up with an old uni friend who done all the translating for me :-)

Other then the language barrier outside the hotel its a great place to stay.
