“A good comfortable hotel in a city that is changing before your eyes.”
Reviewed September 17, 2009

I stayed at this hotel for a few nights and found it very pleasant, the room was very comfortable and spotless, I even had my own chinese dressing gown and the view was interesting with the ten lanes of traffic and young lads stopping buses with red flags.

The breakfast was a mixture of eastern and western and was nice, the loby area contains a bar which was relaxing to sit in at the end of the day and is not expensive for a four star hotel. The staff were pleasant and the whole hotel was spotless really.

Regarding the location, the hotel is situated on one of the ring roads that circle Beijing, which is such a massive City, if you are on a tour this will not affect you, the nearest underground is a very long walk away but taxis are cheap and can take you to all the sites like the Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, Tianamen Square etc.

If you leave the hotel on foot and walk past the KFC parallel to the road for about fifteen minutes you will come to an area the contains a pocket of Beijings fast disappearing hutongs (which are like little houses in very narrow lanes) where not so long ago the whole of the city was populated with these dwellings, only here there is no guided tours for westerners.

I also came across an interesting market in the same area which was pretty big and there were all kinds of things on sale, again with the area around the hotel being so far out, this was purely for the locals and I got some currious looks here but not unpleasant. With the pace of change in Beijing I doubt that this kind of place will exist in this city for much longer.

I forgot to add that opposite the hotel on the other side of the ring road there is a nice restaurant, I can't remember the name but it is up a flight of stairs, you will have to walk to the crossing to get to it.

Stayed for three nights as part of a tour.

Had two room keys so it was handy if two of you needed to come back at different times or to leave one in the room so that the air con stayed on. Rooms were very warm even with air con (think some one moved rooms because of this). A thick duvet on the bed, as with most of the Chinese hotels we stayed at. Room not particularly big but clean. Kettle and tea/coffee sachets provided. Lighting quite dark, various spotlights, no main ceiling light. Slippers even replaced. Fun to watch the ten lanes of traffic or so if you’re on that side. Had a massage card put under the door!

Didn’t see many shops of interest, but there was a handy petrol station - turn right up the same side of the road - selling a few basics. The off-licence the other way seemed to want to rip tourists off - told us bottled water was about 4 times the usual going rate. Go to the petrol station instead, fixed prices and they sell beer! KFC right outside the hotel.

Breakfast room was very busy, food was nice - excellent banana bread/cake.

Can send postcards via the concierge by the front desk, although always dubious when you hand over the money and they say they’ll put the stamps on, most arrived but one didn’t.

Had a few goes at trying to change travellers’ cheques at reception as the person who dealt with the exchange was away from the desk on other business, but managed to do so in the end - but thought a £2 sterling charge on a £50 cheque a bit steep.

As a frequent traveller I was very pleasantly surprised by just how good the hotel is. The room was quiet, pleasant, well equipped and clean and the staff most friendly and helpful. In the UK I have spent many years having to stay in upper range hotels for work and finding a quiet room where one stood a chance of a good night's sleep was, in cities, very difficult. The 6.30 a.m. start for breakfast was spot on (unlike many UK hotels where they are never ready on time). I was the only foreigner who dined in the Chinese restaurant and the food and the service was just superb. Although not in the very centre of town it is only a short and very cheap taxi ride (considerably less than a bus fare for a comparable journey in the UK) took me to where I wanted to go. I would be pleased to stay there again.

I have stayed in this hotel a few times.

Pro: The rooms are very nice and modern. Staff is friendly. It's is quiet. The breakfast buffet is great. At below RMB 600 is. a steal.

Con: The location is a bit inconvenient and it's a long long walk to the subway station.

I will stay there again on my next rip!

  • Liked — Large rooms, quiet, great value
  • Disliked — Location is a little off, but no big deal.

Lovely hotel, great room, pleasant staff, free bottled water in room every day, but breakfast times were chaotic to say the least. Staff unable to cope at breakfast time on both days we stayed, They ran out of cutlery, plates, glasses, food on both mornings, staff were running around like headless chickens, lack of any managment seem to be the problem.

  • Liked — Great rooms and public areas,
  • Disliked — Chaotic, breakfasts
