My boyfriend and I stayed at the Far East Hotel in Beijing for two nights as part of an organized tour. Unfortunately, we were rather disappointed with our experience there. On our first morning there, we woke up quite early only to find that there was no hot water with which to shower! On our second night there, we asked the front desk if they could call a cab for us, and the response from the front desk attendant was that cabs don't like going there. We were there in early April, and the temperature in Beijing was getting down to zero degrees at night. When my boyfriend called the front desk to ask if they could turn up the heat (it was freezing!), they said that they only have heat in the winter!
The downstairs cafe is ok. The staff were quite helpful there and they serve some Western food options.
All in all, I wouldn't stay at the Far East Hotel unless you're a really experienced traveler and are ok with something REALLY basic.
