“Dirty, in desperate need of repair, hard bed”
Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

There are several sections as big as your hand missing from the bathroom floor tile. Our room had cobwebs hanging in the corners and dust bunnies under the bed. The mattress felt like a piece of plywood wrapped in a sheet. There is peeling paint everywhere, peeling wallpaper and crumbling drywall. The rooms look NOTHING like those pictured on the hotel website. We asked for a different room, but the second room was only SLIGHTLY better maintained than the first.

Stayed October 2013, traveled as a couple

We had a 'no window' room on the basement (room 010) and although it had some attractive featurs (round bed, funky bathtub, red tiling) it failed one basic tick box: the bathroom stunk!! Badly!! And it could so with a thorough clean. The location is very good and maybe if you get the rooms with windows, they are more pleasant.

Stayed in this hotel for 6 nights in June.. Personally, my partner and I found the hotel great. The location is fantastic, in between forbidden city, Tienanmen square and the modern shopping centers and eateries. Room was very clean! Basic and not very large but a comfortable place to rest your head at night and great English channels on the TV! Tangyue is an ideal hotel if your intention is to spend your time in Beijing sightseeing and enjoying the culture as you are definitely in the heart of the city with this hotel! If you prefer a bit of luxury and plan to spend lot of time at your hotel then i'd suggest looking at something different.

I had booked this place before noticing a lot of the bad reviews and was a bit worried. Especially when my taxi driver had no idea where the place was and even called with the number provided which apparently didn't work.

Thanks to some of the photos posted, I was able to recognize it and checked in. It's certainly quirky, but not at all horrible like other guests have posted. My room was clean, the a/c worked, the bathroom was actually really cool with bright red tile and a neat bathtub. Again, everything was clean.

I thought that for the price and considering it's proximity to some of the major Beijing tourist attractions, shopping, and restaurants, it was beyond adequate. I mean, if you pay 40 USD or 35 Euro for a hotel in other parts of the world, what are you expecting?

Staff speak limited English, but enough to us to understand each other, and with many of the signs in Chinese, it's evident to me that they are not catering to foreigners. If you are looking for that experience, this is probably not the place for you.

I did sense that someone must have been smoking in a room next time to mine one of the nights I stayed there and you could certainly hear some noises, but it wasn't a late night crowd and it wasn't horrible either.

I thought that the décor was super interesting and I felt safe there and with the location. The size of the room was also more than adequate and had lots of neat areas to put to your luggage out of the way. Plasma screen tv, electric tea kettle with tea, and free wifi rounded out the place. Again, if you are looking for something that caterers Western tourists, this is likely not the place for you, but not because the rooms aren't okay. They are. I stayed in room 107, fyi, which is on the main floor when you walk in.

The lobby also arranges tours and can sell you cameras.

Though we all paid the same for our rooms we had 3 completely different sized rooms. Rooms stank of smoke, shower had mould, wallpaper was peeling, exposed pipes in the walls. Staff could not speak or understand basic English which made it very difficult & cumbersome to pay. No Internet available while we were there!! Felt very unsafe as a woman.

My husband and I stayed there for 4 nights on our trip to Beijing. Worst four nights of our entire trip. Our hotel room was decent siyed, but very dirty. The first day we got there I took a shower and noticed a used toothpick in the shower room. The water from the shower also went throught the wall separating the toilet and shower, so every time someone took a shower the toilet floor got wet as well. The floors are some sort of cardboard faux-wood finish panels, and they also got wet and didn't dry properly during the entire time we were there. Our room has a glass panel window so there was sunlight coming through early in the morning (the hotel has a curtain, but it's very flimsy and doesn't help much). The absolute WORST thing though was the incompetence of the reception ladies. They INSISTED that we would have NO problem getting a taxi outside the hotel to take us to the train station (we also learned that they told several people they could arrange a taxi to come get them). Lo and behold, the day of our departure it was impossible to get a taxi! I asked the lady that spoke English (only one of them does), to call a cab for us and she said that was not possible since she didn't have a phone number for them. It took us 20 more minutes of trying to hail a cab until we asked them to hail one for us. They (very) reluctantly helped us and gave up after 5 minutes. When I informed them that we didn't arrange for other transportation since she ASSURED us a taxi was easy to get she suggested we go by metro or bus (yeah right, with 5 suitcases). HORRIBLE, horrible service. Disgusting bathrooms, paper thin walls (lots of shouting at night by the staff), and VERY mean recpetionists. DO NOT STAY HERE. It really put a damper on our otherwise excellent Beijing trip.

Was a bit worried about this hotel after reading some of the reviews.
It's a bit tired and small but it's clean and so close to everything.
It's a short walk to Forbidden City, Tianamen Square, Metro stations and a bunch of great food.
Really couldn't beat it for the price for it's location.
The staff were able to book us a car for the day to go to the wall at a reasonable price and the driver was very good.
Free wifi is also useful when trying to plan the day's activities.

Room Tip: Upstairs seems a little better.
