I would say that the reviews for this hotel are spot-on. This is a strong four-star hotel when you consider the value, location and sleep quality. I have numerous short trips planned for Beijing and will always consider this hotel first.

The hotel is easy to get to. Simply take the airport train from Beijing airport until you get to Dongzhimen Station. The hotel is walking distance. I see numerous opinions relative to the walk to the train station. I show the walk to be eight tenths of a mile or 1.3 kilometers. The walk is pleasant, and you will pass numerous shops, bars and eateries along the way. The train station is next to Giza Mall and I would highly recommend one of the eateries therein.

The hotel is in a working-class neighborhood near a convenience store, numerous restaurants and a few bars. The hotel surprised me. The lobby was five-star quality and I liked the back-yard’s waterfall, seating area and colorful lite bicycles. The check-in was quick, and the staff was professional. The workers in the hotel were friendly and courteous, the hotel was clean, and the only thing I longed for was an ice machine, but, truth to tell, this is abnormal in Beijing.

I thought the rooms were exactly the size of a standard room that you would find in the United States. There are no views to speak of, but the windows opened, mosquito nets are attached. You are provided a hit water kettle, tea, coffee, nice quality towel and a comfortable bed.

The internet deserves its own paragraph, albeit a brief one. The internet leaves a lot to be desired. The speed is intermittent between average and slow. I would highly recommend a VPN and lots of patience.

The only complaint has nothing to do with the hotel, it has to do with hotel guests. Many smoke in the hallway or at the end of each floor in a smoking area without first closing the door as asked. There is nothing you can do about it, but it is disappointing that folks would not follow the rules in this really nice hotel.

I thought breakfast was especially nice. The eating area was airy, the staff very welcoming and breakfast was more like brunch in that many breakfast and lunch choices are provided.

For a short business trip, the hotel is certainly good enough. But it's also very clearly a budget hotel- not the best breakfast buffet and a fitness center with three machines only.

That said, it's clean and the staff are very good. The location is great with some very good spots to eat and drink within easy walking distance.

1st, even though it;s call Holiday Inn Express Dongzhimen, don't be fooled that it's close to the Dongzhimen metro. It's a good 20 to 25 min walk from Dongzhimen metro. So if you take the airport express and alight at Dongzhimen station with plenty of luggage, take a meter taxi which won't cost you more than 13 RMB. It's actually closer to Dongsi shi tiao metro , about 15min walk.

Rooms are clean with all the basic amenities which you will find in a business hotel. Beds are comfortable. however, we were given a room facing the streets, which can be quite noisy due to the honking of the vehicles in the mornings.

Breakfast is the usual stuff. Not bad and good to fill the stomach.

Not a lot of food options around the area but there is a 24hr McDonalds about 10min walk towards Dong si shi tiao metro.

Sanlitun shopping and pubs is about 15min walk away. Other pubs around the stadium is about 10 to 15 min walk away.

The biggest con is it's a bit of a walk to the metro. It's also quite costly for the size of the room by china standards. This is Beijing, things seems more expensive compared to other cities in china.

Room Tip: Ask from rooms away from the street.

The hotel was clean, comfortable, and updated. The location was convenient to restaurants and shops. It was about a 15 minute walk to the Metro. The area was safe. We were very pleased with the accommodations and would consider staying here again if in Beijing.

Having now stayed here on two occasions, I think it is a good place and value for money. It is only a short rickshaw drive from the Airport Express station in Dongzhimen, which makes it a good location. Good breakfast also.
