            right at the heart of the city, short walk to mall with great restaurants, nice bathroom

          • Single
            7.8

            Excellent location within walking distance of the Forbidden City and Tienanmen Square. Also good subway access. Room was comfortable and well presented and breakfast more than adequate.

            Staff had limited English and were not very helpful. As I was checking in another guest was leaving because she felt claustrophobic in a basement room. My room was fine but some of the cheaper rooms may be substandard.

            The Location

            The staff was very tense and aggressive. The room cleaning was barely done... Hair in the shower for the 6 nights of our stay, leak on the carpet, dirty and smelly... Would not stay there ever again! You can find cheaper and better in Beijing!

          • Couple
            5.0

            Within 15 minutes walk to Tian An Men square, Forbidden City, Wang Fu Jing & the subway.

            Taps & washing basin were rusty, aircon didn't work well & room was small even though it was sold as deluxe queen.

          • Couple
            7.8

            Location - 2 minutes walk to the central metro station, 5-10 minutes walk to the Tiannamen square and the Forbidden City, 5 minutes walk to the Wanfujin street. Staff was friendly and spoke good english. Rooms were good firnished and clean. We heard nothing when staying in the room, well noise-proof.

            The room even being Deluxe was small and not very much comfortable, The room faced the small alley - hutong where one car used to start the engine and get warmed in the mornings.

            Its location. I was on a business trip to Shanghai and I came to Beijing over the weekend, the hotel location was perfect for me, I walked to the forbidden city. Unfortunately I only spent one night there and most of the time I was out, so I can't give more details about my staying there. but in general, the hotel is nice, and the staff also. I definitely recommend it and will consider it in my next trip to Beijing.

            I think the room price should include breakfast

          • Single
            5.8

            Location is good. Rates are not too expensive.

            The room was designated a non-smoking room, but had ashtray and a strong smell of Chinese cigarettes.

          • Single
            8.8

            The staff was very helpful. I need to freeze my ice packs to cool down my medication. Since the fridge in the room was not cold enough, I went every day to the kitchen staff, who would put it in their freezer over night. Very friendly and flexible staff, who aimed to find a solution.

            There were constructions going on, which were quite noisy several times. But I am sure that will be over soon.

          • Group of friends
            5.4

            Rooms were clean, and had a great shower.

            Three friends and myself prebooked four nights two months in advance, and they charged us the full price for both rooms and all four nights as apposed to just a deposit. The rooms we had booked were described as having two single beds in them. Upon arrival we were told they had only one double bed in each room and if we wanted to upgrade it would cost us. They also tried to charge us for the mini bar wich not one of us opened the whole time.

          • Single
            5.8

            It is very close to the main tourist attractions such as the Forbidden City

            There is no sound-proofing of the walls or door, and so starting about 6:30am you can easily hear how your neighbors are waking and slamming their doors as they go to breakfast. Unless you are a very deep sleeper, be prepared to wake at about 6:30am.

          • Group of friends
            7.0

            Location is absolutely wonderful - right next to a park, very close to the Forbidden City and Wangfujing shopping street. Rooms are adequate, just make sure you book a deluxe room - the standard ones have really small windows and are awfully dark.

            The Front Office staff are not at all helpful. I don't know whether it is caused by cultural differences and language issues (most of them speak very little English), but they seem not to care at all about their guests... Overall, it is a good hotel for those who want to stay in a central location and do not have any special requirements. If a room + breakfast are all you need - it's a good place for you.

          • Single
            5.4

            I liked the location and the breakfast was very good

            I upgraded to the deluxe room - I did not have anything to compare it with but thought it was a bit jaded. I arrived in the early hours of the morning and the receptionist wasn't particularly welcoming or helpful - after a long journey it would have been nice to have had a friendly welcome

          • Couple
            6.6

            excellent location, 5min from metro and Tian An Men square

            worth staying here only because of location, otherwise poor quality - basement rooms have almost no light, telephone did not work, LAN cable connection was broken...

          • Couple
            8.2

            Great location, nice building and rooms.

            The trip to the great wall was more expensive than the same trip booked through other hotels in the area.

          • Family with children
            5.8

            The location is ideal, 5 mins to the Forbidden City, subway, and Wangfujing shopping & dinning area. The reception desk staff are very efficient, check-in and check-out is very fast. They also speak good English. The atm machine is most conveniently located in the lobby, it's quickest way to get my cash then finding an international bank when I ran out of money. Breakfast is very good, except if they can change the menu alternative days that would make it more interesting. We stayed there 5 days, so the daily breakfast became boring.

            We stayed in both the new and older or original block. The drainage system in the older block is a bit old. There was slow draining in the shower cubicle causing pool of water on our feet while showering. Also, sometimes the drain smells. The aircon also made noise. While we stayed in a smaller room in the newer block, the drain works well and the aircon was nice and quiet.
