The hotel isn't particularly cheap or expensive for Beijing, but for a cultural trip, you don't get a better location. It's litterally 2min from the Forbidden City, meaning, you do the rarely done walk around the moat at night every night. All convenience can be found around the hotel.
Staff is ok, not great, but ok. The bar is rather good, staff is helping, particularly when there's nobody around, you can have a pool game, asking for your music to be played while putting whatever you want on TV.
Rooms are the basics of the basics. You're not getting a cosy hostel or luxury hotel here, rooms are clean enough but not top grade, more of a backpacking thing than a couply thing.
Would still return.More
Very Good 4/5
