We found this hotel after looking at many hotels on Trip Advisor funny enough. The hotel is very centrally situated in Beijing and has a nice reception area. The staff speak very little english as we were told, but everything was booked by our travel agent and after paying a deposit fee, which is refunded when you leave, we went up to our room on the 7th floor. Not a bad room. The room was clean and we had requested a non-smoking room which it was. This hotel is close to everything in the center of Beijing and has a seven 11 supermarket directly across the road from the hotel. You could buy all sorts of nice goodies from there and prices were not too bad. Also down the street a bit going right from the hotel is a lovely bakery with all sorts of cakes , bread and tasty goodies. A bit further on is a McDonald's which is open late and the prices are very good. The hotel has a breakfast in the morning which is also good, but as we were told beforehand, the guy that makes the eggs is one person and you have to wait in line, but it's not too bad if you are not in a rush. We found the spread to be fine. The hotel is almost around the corner from the famous Wangfujing street, which has upmarket shops and you must walk further on up the street until you come to the famous night market. A must see! We actually went downtown during the day and what an experience. All these stalls offering scorpions on a stick and numerous other ghastly goodies, with some others having nice goodies, worth going to see!! This hotel is close to The Forbidden City, Tiananman Square, and other attractions within walking distance. There is also a big underground supermarket over the road from the hotel where you can buy most anything. Also the MRT is close by, so give that a go just to see what there underground trains are like. Overall this hotel suited us as to the location and we enjoyed our stay. The other Trip Advisors were right, it is a nice hotel and served our purpose very much. I would stay there again if i went back to Beijing and i would recommend it to anyone, but don't expect too much. Treat it as an adventure.
