“Nice hotel. Good value for the money”
Reviewed November 12, 2011

Very helpful staff. Some tourist attractions within walking distance. E.g. Temple of Heaven and Tianqiao Acrobatic Theater. Also good public bus connections to other parts of the city. Within walking distance (25 min) of Tiananmen Square. Liked it.

The RJ Brown is a good stay for a few night. The rooms are moderate. The beds are pretty hard.
Breakfast is oke.
The hotel is in the south west of Beijing. Not the best location. But taxi's are cheap.
Temple of Heaven is on short distance.
Few restaurants in neighberhood. Ter eis a restaurant nextdoor with pizza's and internet.

Very friendly, clean, enough space for me and my 18 year old son, a perfect location to start for nearby walks. Always a lovely place to come back! And a nice roof veranda for drinking beer and looking over beijing.

To be perfectly honest I was a bit disappointed with our room. We were on the ground floor and the bathroom flooded as soon as the shower went on. It was also a bit smelly and had not been aired. However they were very full so I think we were stuck in the one of the last available rooms - other members of our tour group had much nicer rooms... so best advice is definitely worth staying just don't stay on the ground floor.

Owner very nice and spoke good English. Staff eager to please. Pizza place next door very convenient, also has internet access... 20 minute walk (max)Tianamen Square, Forbidden Palace, Acrobat Theatre. Supermarket round the corner. Not much nightlife if you are hoping to go out after all the sightseeing.

We booked this hotel after reading other reviews, and i must say it was better than we expected the hotle was close to the Temple of heaven. Good loction. the room was nice really comfy bed very clean and a good size ensuite shower room. the best thing about this hotel was the staff they were so nice and helpful. We were booked room only but still got breakfast which was basic but hey it was free. next door was a handy pizza bar..and a great foot rub. Also handy supermarket round the corner. We would def stay here again.

  • Liked — the staff were lovely
  • Disliked — shower wasnt always hot but hey stayed in less and saved water so all good

We loved this hotel, mainly because of its location. It is only a 20 minute walk to Tianan Men Square and is across from the Temple of Heaven. Close by there is a traditional department store, a grocery market and a wonderful park where you can see people fly their kites.

But the best thing about the location is that it is not in a tourist area and you can walk around and not see another westerner. Yet we always felt safe. The Chinese were friendly and keen to try out their limited English.

The hotel itself was very good. The room was very large, good breakfast (with real English tea) and there was a little cafe next door that served western food as well as Chinese. We will definitely stay here again.
