Average quality hotel with a decent sized room (compared to Hong Kong average!) and OK cleanliness. The restaurant staff couldn't speak English and seemed baffled by my sign language when pointing to the menu pictures when we asked for dinner on our first night. But they were young and inexperienced and seemed frightened of foreigners, so I didn't blame them. But a truly international standard 4* hotel would not have had these problems. We couldn't find many restaurants nearby though and the hotel's map of the area was unreadable and misleading. Still, on our second night the restaurant next door proved good once you'd navigated the hawkers on the door who wanted you to see their "art exhibition" upstairs - just say no firmly - and make your way through to the rear of the building for excellent and cheap food. Breakfast was busy and noisy but there was plenty of Chinese and Western food on offer so no complaints. Don't pay extra for an 'American' breakfast - nobody checks how much you eat. All in all OK but I bet there are better places to stay in Beijing. We booked this through China Highlights.
