So if we are talking about ambiance and modern aesthestic, this hotel is not it. Now if you're in Beijing to do some sightseeing as in Forbidden Palace and all the other tourist spots, this is a pretty good hotel to stay in.
There's literally a subway station not even a block away from the hotel. The only bad thing is that it's the farthest hotel away from the subway station.
The housekeeper lady is so nice, she gave us multiple waters constantly and was just so nice. We kept bumping into her which was why lol. The front desk staff were quite helpful and even the security guards, I'm assuming, were quite ok. There is a gym and pool you can go but being there in December, we didn't not go. Also, there is a breakfast and dinner buffet but it was quite pricy. I'd stay there again if I need something comfortable and convenient in Beijing.
We stayed here for 4 nights. Our room was big and comfortable although it was located near the busy main road so it was a bit too noisy at times at night as I think there wasn't double glazing on windows. The room was a bit dated but still comfortable. The bathroom was quite big and had lots of marble and big shower. We didn't know this hotel had a pool. Wifi wasn't good but we found that in all hotels in China.
The staff here were good and some spoke very good English. The security staff were ok but a little over the top in checking us out.
The location of this hotel is fantastic, very close to Tiananmen Square, Forbidden city and a metro. Lots to see by just walking around from here.
Breakfast was pretty good but could of been better. We had the buffet dinner here one night and it was very expensive and not very good. The seafood was very bland and tasteless. The quality of the food wasn't great and the choices weren't great. Im not a fussy eater but this wasn't worth the money we paid. We had dinner the next night off the menu and once again the food wasn't great. The creamy chicken pasta dish had hardly any chicken in it and was loaded with a lot of cream. Staff were friendly but service quite slow.
If the food was better here for both breakfast and dinner I would of rated this hotel higher. Its shame because its a good hotel location wise.
This hotel has been an amazing experience with the gym, spa , pool and the look over some of the city. This hotel is located in the middle of Beijing where all things are located some walking distance or public transport close by.
The people are nice and helpful for what fits your needs
The staff, the room and the location were all excellent. I needed an adapter for my phone and a staff member brought up a power strip which was so appreciated because in an electronic world more than my phone needed to be charged. The check in process went seamless and as an English speaking staff greeted us. The pool is gorgeous and very big, the gym has all you need for a good workout. I would stay here again. Walking distance to the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. Steps from the train system. Easy to get to from the airport with one train transfer.
Everything is first class. Rooms are super nice and spotless. The pool is it's own tropical getaway. Super spectacular!! If you could pay to just visit the pool, it would be well worth it. Amazing fitness area. Lots of exercise equipment, free weights, and stretching room. Staff keeps the equipment clean, and stocked with towels and water. Very close to the metro. Staff is helpful, professional, and friendly.
