A very stylish hotel under Swire. A thumbs-up to the room. Every detail is perfect. Electric curtain, dimmer, iPod... The bed was comfortable, and the room was silent. 30mins from the capital airport to the hotel.
Tried the breakfast buffet. Wide selection of food including Chinese and Western.
Staff was nice and attentive. They were well-groomed and dressed smart causal uniform, which I like it. Full of energy.

I attended a morning tea held in the Xian room, the staff were brilliant and professional. The food and beverages provided were great value and the selection was unrestricted. I highly recommend this venue for your events

Hotel just recently opened. Rooms are well designed and very comftorable. Location is not very convient, just take a taxi to where you need to go. Hotel staff seem to be still figuring out how to run the hotel, but very friendly.

Minimalistic and Modern business hotel. High quality beds, functional room and bathroom, tea and coffee and water provided for free.
Great restaurant with a small but excellent menu to very fair prices, wonderful breakfast buffet with all you can think of. Busy bar with life music, welcoming and trendy.
Easy going hotel with a good service. Child and teenager friendly!

A friend persuaded me to try out this new hotel, and I did not regret it for one minute.

This is the second Beijing property by the Swire Group (the other one being the Opposite House, which has made its mark for style and luxury). The East Beijing is like the little brother for those of us who aren't bankers on big expense accounts ;-)

Considering the fact that this hotel has only just been opened, the service is amazingly smooth and works well. Check-in was quick, and the room was nice, clean and functional. Sleep comfort was excellent. I went to the gym a few times, and that left a very modern and stylish impression, too. I went to both the Western as well as the Japanese restaurant and found both of them to be very nice and of great quality. All in all I will surely go back - but let's see where the rates settle in once the "opening special rates" disappear.

Other reviewers have noted that the hotel is "out of the way" - but if (like in my case) business requires you to be around the north-eastern part of the city, this is not a problem at all. And for after the office 798 (an impressive art district) is close by, and the hotel is integrated with a fancy shopping mall, it seems (I did not check out the mall yet).

The hotel deserves a clear recommendation, as it proves to me that the concept of growth at any price (Marriott!) is doomed, and that groups that grow slower yet are more focused on service quality can get it right in China.

PS: the hotel uses a very casual and laid-back uniform concept that can - at first - easily be confused with someone's own dress. This is all good and well, since it fits with the concept of the relaxed environment the hotel tries to provide its guests. The only point is that you must be aware of this. In my case, I arrived in a cab and thought that a passer-by was trying to "help" unload my suitcase. I then noticed it was actually staff, but on your first arrival this may cause confusion.

The hotel is newly opened and really stylish. There're not many travelers in the hotel, so it doesn't look crowded. You don't have to wait more than 10 seconds for elevator, which is good. I got free breakfast. It was very good. The juice I had was obviously the same as that they have in the cupcake place at Sanlitun Village North. I wish they had more dim-sum, yet I have nothing to complain. The room is relatively spacious, and I really like the lighting settings in the room. They can have higher-quality shower gel and shampoo though.

Everyone at the hotel was nice and trying to be professional. They have different names for "front desk" and "concierge". The staff was wearing hoodies and Converse shoes. However, people wear suits for a reason. My guest came to the hotel and said to me that he felt the hotel must have been a mess judged by the outfits of its staff members.

Generally speaking, East Beijing is worth the money. Given that it's just opened for less than 6 months, it still has a lot to improve, especially the details that hotels like Andaz are doing well (I assume they're competitors in terms of edginess).

Room Tip: Do NOT choose Garden View room, because there's no garden yet on that side of the hotel. Listen...

I be been to the restaurant of this hotel today and was happily surprised by the brunch. Much less expensive that other brunch And really good value. Very friendly staff and children had special menu and place to play or watch TV. Tables are big enough to be with friends. The location is not very central but it's worth testing it !
