We have stayed in four hotels in China and this was the best maintained. Staff was very friendly too. We did not find the location so bad actually. Different from other reviews we found it very close to the Temple of Heavens and not far from the Forbidden city (considering it is Beijing). Also we liked that the hotel was in a residential are with people dancing outside in the evening so we really saw how people live there. Not far away is the Carrefour supermarket.
We loved the restaurant on the corner, next to Mr. Lee. If you face Mr. Lee it is the one just on the right or the second on the right. It has not so many seats downstairs, but a lot upstairs. They serve delicious, fantastic "Fondue chinoise". You have a hot plate in your table and you can order whatever you like to cook in your soup. Staff was enourmously friendly. Maybe the restaurant is called "Phoenix Legend", but we are not sure as the card we took is all in Chinese and only these two words are in English.
The only thing we missed was a business center as we dont carry a laptop with us.
