The hotel exudes old world charm for those who like it, with modern comfort. The suites are well appointed with amenities that will pamper a tired mind in the hustle and bustle of Beijing. Its location is ideal for visiting TianAnMen and the Forbidden city, as well as the WangFuJing shopping area. The service staff are not particularly friendly, but are elegantly measured and polite. The only problem I encountered during my stay last winter was about the heating in the suite. It was too warm for comfort, and I could not find any temperature control. The service staff offerred me a fan which I declined as it would make much noise. I resorted to open the windows slightly to let a little of cold air in to moderate the heat. Overall, it is a very good hotel that I may return to.
