“Friendly staff, but not very useful when...”
Reviewed June 16, 2010

Friendly staff, but not very useful when they don't speak English. On the website they claim to have an English speaking receptionist... Nope. No one spoke English, which made even checking in and out very difficult.

Filthy floors. Stains on the carpet. They provide slippers: USE THEM!

We used the laundry services, but was not pleased with the results, given the high price.

Great location, and there's a starbucks nearby for breakfast.

Reviewed December 25, 2008

I was a little hesitant not going with a major hotel chain in Beijing, but experiencing something new was part of the experience.

I'm glad I did! Haven't see many reviews of this hotel & I am surprised that there isn't more info on this hotel. It's ideally located close to the subway (cab are super cheap, took the subway once for experience) and shopping areas. Staff is as helpful as any other but their English is limited. Breakfast every morning that isn't advertised (it's such a big bonus to wake up and go grab food in your own hotel! That too for FREE!)

Mind you this is no fancy, 5 star hotel. But definitely has the makings of a nice boutique hotel. We got a great deal for about $85 a night! Well worth the price taking into account the location. Other comparable hotels in the area were definitely more expensive.
