Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

All the gripes I normally have about hotels were all in place here; its unusual for a place to totally share your philosophy ; great check in manager who really cared about your every need, nothing too much trouble.

Initially I was a little disappointed that there was no outside terrace and the large one I found on the 5th floor was for the exclusive use of a couple of rooms. I also didn't know to the last day that some rooms had balconies; if I had known... a missed opportunity for a very well designed hotel

The whole place has a cool vibe with young guys doing the concierge and front of house functions
Was odd to see one of the 'Experience Managers' was an English Guy ; made it feel even more at home in a slightly modern colonial sort of way!

Love the village cafe for breakfast
And the Duck restaurant for Dinner on my last night

The rooms were serviced very well with copious extras
They had quite complicated lighting and was very disorientated on my first morning, when Jet lagged ; i thought lights had come on from under the blinds; it was the sun !

Its very good value if you compare internationally with other cities

Stayed: September 2017, travelled solo

This is the best hotel to stay in while in Beijing. It's in a great area. The hotel is unique but very clean and accommodating, and the restaurants are fantastic. So is the service. I will always stay there in the future.

This is a beautiful hotel that makes you feel comfortable and at ease during your stay. I recommend it vividly. It would be nice if personnel would speak more English, but they compensate their lack of command in the language with their courtesy and good disposition.

Amazing hotel in a fun location with a plethora of bars and restaurants. Really helpful staff, delicious in-house breakfast and dim sum and a free mini bar! Overall a very relaxing and special experience. Highly recommend.

Location is perfect, rooms are pure form with white walls and wood plus glass elements (plus crude, wooden floors). I have never slept as well in a hotel as I always do here, regardless of the room I get.

Room Tip: Best rooms are on higher floors and facing the mall (not the street).
