“So peaceful at the River View”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

I enjoy staying at the River View Hotel: it is my preferred business hotel when staying in Beijing. It is conveniently located in the embassy area; is about a 10 minute walk to the Dongzhimen station/subway (where you can also catch the airport express bus) and is within walking distance of the Yashow market. The hotel itself is located on a side road, away from the din of traffic and honking drivers. The rooms are simple but clean (beds are on the hard side; I find them very comfortable) and the staff is courteous and friendly. Breakfast is typical - cereal, fresh fruit, baked goods, an egg station and a variety of Chinese dishes. There is a nice variety of shops, restaurants (including Pizza Hut) and grocery stores in the surrounding area and the river, which meanders through the area, provides a nice route for walking. Internet is available in the rooms, but no wi-fi.

Very good and cheaper hotel in the embassy area of Beijing
I suggest this hotel for business trip and also for holidays
Make booking in advance, because many time now is full, and you can find only big room where the price is more expensive than the standard room

This hotel is a very good deal for China/Beijing. Price is OK. room is clean and comfortable with enough space. unfortunatelly they don´t know the difference between a smoking room and a non smoking room. they think, when you don´t smoke in the room then its automatically a non smoking room,whatever the guest did befor. The people there are friendly and helpful ... for chinese standard ....

After five weeks in China I needed a clean, comfortable, reasonably priced hotel. This was it. Most of the staff spoke at least functional English. They only served a Chinese breakfast, but I was able to get an omlette, salad & toast. The restaurant had adequate lunch and dinner options - both Chinese and Western. The only thing lacking was that it was about a 20 minute walk to the subway. However, the bellmen were able to get me a taxi within a relatively short period of time. The staff was extremely freindly and helpful.
