I stayed at this hotel for one night and picked it because of its proximity to the airport. If you phone the hotel they will pick you up from the airport. However it was clear once we arrived that things were not quite as nice as the website and brochure suggests.
Our path to our room took us under an archway dripping with water. There were buckets dotted around to catch the water but they weren't doing much good.
Despite asking for a double room when we arrived we found the room was a twin. We went back through the leaky archway to the reception and we were very rudely told that they had no double rooms and there was nothing they could do.
The beds in our room were uncomfortable, the decór was faded and the carpet was stained. We also discovered that there was no hot water. We called reception and they sent someone, who confirmed there was no hot water and said that we needed to change rooms.
We were told that we would be upgraded, but the room was identical to the last - a dirty twin room with no hot water and toiletries half opened.
After complaining to the people behind the desk we were told there was nothing they could do and after demanding a lower price to compensate they offered a better room. It was late at night and we had a flight early in the morning so we did not wish to switch again, especially since they weren't helping with our bags. They did however arrange a free bus to the airport at a time before they usually start shipping their residents. The restaurant was actually OK, although service was slow.
Apart from its proximity to the airport there's nothing good about its location. There's nothing to see in the local area.
I'd find another hotel if I ever had to spend a night in Beijing before a flight again. The staff were rude and the rooms were dirty and defective.
