We stayed here as a part of the package on our Smartours trip to China. We were very happy with our stay. The hotl was centrally located (if there can truly be a center to the vast city of Beijing). We were close to a subway station and in the same complex of buildings as the New World Mall. We aren't really shoppers, but the gigantc supermarket on the basement level was amazing and wonderful...full of unidentifiable dried things, local candies, fish, meats and produce - and the Chinese equivalent of a deli bar. It was a feast for the eyes and tummy.
The room was fine but the temperature control a little iffy. The bedding was all natural fiber and comfy - a real plus in my book. Water pressure in the bathroom very good, but drainage in the tub a little slow. I think it caused a problem in another room with overflow. There was a gym on one of the upper levels. The equipment was new but sparse. That didn't matter muc as it wasn't much used. Again, room was a little hot and no thermostat.
We knew by visiting the website that the hotel offered free bikes for the guests to use. We really enjoyed cycing aound the city (even in the rain. We'd brought our foul weather gear.) If you go, definitely give it a go. There ae fenced bike lanes. As for navigating the intersections and Beijing traffic, just follow the crowd. I was a highlight of the trip for us!
