Not central but good location for me as I needed to be reasonably close to the airport but also in the city. New and stylish with very helpful and friendly Englsih-speaking staff (some still learning the ropes but thats OK). I got an upgrade to a corner room at check-in. You get taken to your room so they can show you how to work all the gadgets (light controls, hidden electric socket locations, extendable TV support arm, internet/AV cables, automatic blinds, minibar, aircon etc.). Corner room is large with nice decor and massive bathroom containing huge tub, walk-in shower, toilet, sink and nice Elemis toiletries. Storage cupboard in the hallway with safe, iron/ironing board, clothes hanging space and robes/slippers. Large, clean and comfortable bed, with bedside light control panel for the room lights (including mood lighting) which also controls the blinds for the floor-to-ceiling windows. Lots of electric sockets - you don't need to bring your electric adaptor as there are a variety of different socket types to choose from and there are also USB ports to directly charge your devices (so clever!). Minibar has free water and also nice ground coffee/cafetiere for your use (although no milk/creamer). There is also a desk with desklamp with more sockets/USB ports to use. The room also contains a very good sounding iPod dock (Phillips I think) complete with the latest iPod Touch (not fixed so you can take it off the dock and walk around with it) containing a nice selection of jazz and soul music. Wifi is free throughout the hotel so you can use the IPod Touch to search the internet if you need to. View from my Corner room was towards Indigo shopping mall and out of Beijing to the east (not such a great view). Overall, very clean, modern, nice extra touches, comfortable, quiet, reasobaly priced, good service, highly recommended. I didn't have breakfast as I left early so can't comment on that.
