Is someone having a joke? How can they offer such amazingly cool rooms and such a lovely boutique hotel in such a stunning position at this level of pricing? It is undoubtedly the best hotel value in Beijing. We were amazed on seeing the rooms on offer. True it was New Year and the demand for rooms was low but still it was something of a bargain.
Things started a bit badly - we complained because the water in our room was slow flowing and the hot took such a long time to come through. However we were immediately moved to a better room which meant a free upgrade. We had our own small garden and a much larger room all for about £60. Though breakfast was not included.
The rooms are superb, extremely stylish and well fitted out, light and airy.
One small grump - each room had only one bedside lamp.
Suites have their own pc with broadband.
The hotel reception space is attractive and spacious with a small library area.
We didnt try the restaurant but it certainly looked good from what we could see. The Business Centre was up to date and efficient.
Most staff spoke some English and the doormen were always friendly and on hand.
