“Pricey but good location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

We stayed here after walking the streets lost for an hour or so and all the places more to our budget wouldn't let us stay because we were tourists. We got 2 single rooms for 700 rmb for one night so like usual, make sure you haggle your price or book online. This was more than we planned to pay for the night and claimed we didn't have any money left for the crazy deposit she was asking for since it would have left us dry until geting to an atm so she let us off. One receptionist could speak english which was handy. The room was nice but the floor was a bit dirty. The bathroom + shower were really good after that day of travels. About a 10 min walk to tiananmen square where you can also walk to the forbidden city.

This is a typical chinese hotel.

At the reception people don't speak english.

The rooms are very dirty.
You get every day clean towels, but that's it. No vacuming or cleaning.

You get chinese hot breakfast and if you are lucky there is some toast and jelly.

The location however is close to tiananmen square and the forbidden city and close to the subway.
This would be the only reason to choose for this hotel.

We arrived in Beijing looking forward to a cold wintery vacation. It turns out that not only the weather was cold so was the hotel staff and the hotel food. The only things that were hot that first morning were the beverages and our temper. Moreover, the wait staff had no intention of re-filling the food when the food at the buffet table runs out. And they promptly remove all the food at 9am even when there are still diners in the dining room. They did not even have the courtesy of asking the diners if they needed anything else before removing the food at the buffet table.

Housekeeping was no better. We took three rooms stayed for four nights. Our rooms were never swept nor vaccuumed during the course of our stay. Needless to say, the bathroom floor was really messy by the fifth day. The only thing that was noticeably done by housekeeping was the bed being re-made and new towels were provided.

The rooms in general are poorly lit including the bathroom. Some of the bulbs were even missing. The facelift being done on the building was not a bother unless you were in your hotel room between 8am to 5pm. Like most tourists, we were awake by that time and returned late in the evening. Their doors have no peepholes nor chain locks. So when someone knocks on the door or rings the bell, you have to open the door first to see who it is. But because there are no chain locks, it felt so unsafe every time to open the door when someone knocks. We had resorted to shouting to announce to family members to open the doors for us.

  • Liked — It was near the subway station and opposite the most famous peking duck restaurant in the city.
  • Disliked — All the hotel staff do not grasp the concept of customer service.
  • Tips/Secrets — The subway station Hepingmen is right around the corner. With the cold weather, it is easier to get to other tourist attractions and shopping destinations using the subways while avoiding the bitter cold winds.
