My partner and I stayed here in early January 2013, after we had just completed the Transiberian railway trip from Moscow. As soon as we arrived, the hotel was welcoming, the staff friendly and helpful, and tried very hard to meet our every request.
The room itself (my partner had booked the wedding suite) was beautiful, with beautiful, traditional touches at every turn. Water and fruit and different types of Chinese tea were provided. Cleaning was efficient and prompt, the turn-down service unintrusive, the internet access flawless. Breakfast was delightful, a good mix of local and more westernised food.
The staff helped us to book trips to Mutianyu Great Wall and (with my unwarranted initial reluctance!) a Kung Fu show which turned out to be entertaining. We found both to be excellent value. The location was convenient and in a trendy part of town. We certainly enjoyed this location a lot more than the location of the Fairmont, where we also stayed while in Beijing.
A great hotel - we certainly hope to be back soon.
