For my first time in Beijing my Chinese colleagues suggested the Qilu. I checked it out on line and found a number of the comments to be very accurate. The hotel staff has limited English, but for most travelers with a little charades and lack of major problems it should be fine. The closest subway is Ping Anli and it is walkable if you don't have a huge amount of luggage, As with many of the sidewalks in Beijing, they are always changing and there are lots of obstructions, changes in elevation, and entertainment along the way. Breakfast is average Chinese.. I always gauge a hotel in China by the quality of the breakfast sausage, the Qilu ranks pretty average. The hotel is across the street from Behai Park, which is a good short cut, and more interesting to take to get to the Forbidden City, and Tienanmen Square area. I walked over on two occasions, both taking me about an hour... It is 15RMB to get into the park and while in November it was a sunny cool day, I can see the park being more interesting in the summer. The other area is just to the east, a lake with a number of coffee houses, Starbucks on the corner, bars... lots of night life here and to the north east. The Hutongs in the area are also very interesting. No WIfi just wired internet access.
