I have stayed in Orange Hotel Suzhou before and I was impressed with the location and the place itself. When I arrived in Beijing, my company reserved a room for me good for 21 days. The design of the room is almost the same as other Orange Hotels. The place was very easy to find when you get out of the Jinsong Station you will see a McDonald's and then you only need to walk straight ahead and find another McDonald's. Breakfast was free/provided and it was the same all day (hard boiled egg, banana and sandwich, porridge/rice-soup). Food is easy to find in the area. A lot of restaurants and a lot of stores in the area. Service was very good. Some of the staff can speak English. The staff was very helpful. In almost anything that I need specially in transferring my boxes they were able to help with a smile!
Internet/Wifi was also good.
Thank you very much Orange Hotel Staff!!!
This was my first experience in China. I was not impressed. The room was ok, but the bed was hard. It was a very basic hotel. The air conditioning sweated in my room a lot, but they wouldn't do anything about it. The constant prostitute cards left on my door was very worrisome. Also, to get to the hotel you have to go down a stinky alley road and go up the elevator. Not the ,it's welcoming site or first impression. Also, the wifi was very spotty in the rooms.
I am staying in this hotel because my company has put me here to transition into my job here in Beijing. First of all, the hotel is quite hard to find. My taxi diver tried to get me to exit the car before being sure that this was my destination.
The check-in was fast and there was a deposit necessary of 100RMB. I had heard that there were some cute little amenities at this hotel, so I was looking forward to staying here. The Rubics cube was there, but it was filthy. There, on my desk, was a card introducing me to "Lucy", my fish during my stay. Unfortunately Lucy must have checked out with the last guests as she has yet to show up in my bowl. I even left the card out to get her serviced, but it has yet to happen as unfortunately they speak very little English at the front desk (but what do you expect, it's China),
The hallways are very drab and I imagine the carpet was quite becoming 30 years ago. The hallways are also hot and humid.
My bathroom has a strange smell coming from the shower and there are exposed wires in the shower.
After a week of staying here I placed the card on my sheets to have them replaced. Sure enough, the same sheets were on my bed when I returned.
The bed, however, is quite comfortable. But the room, sadly, is not clean. Behind my side table is a pair of the last guest's underwear.
So... draw your own conclusions. This review is nothing, if not honest.
Read the reviews and baffled by the complaints! Taxi driver from Beijing airport took me straight there (recognised McDonalds underneath). Foyer hard to find (at the back) but once there, service great. Wi-fi worked immediately but firewall a bit suspect. Jinsong station maybe 5 minutes away, not a long walk. However cross the road in front of the hotel, turn right and take 52 bus (regular service) straight to Wanfujing tourist area for 1RMB, maybe 5 stops.
Also large supermarket underneath and you can buy anything as well as McDonalds.
Only problem I had was a room facing main road.. noisy and if you open window smell of restaurants below. Asked for a rear facing room, immediately granted, fabulous large room (usual hard Chinese bed) not a good look but spacious and quiet.
When leaving walked outside and porter called me a taxi back to the airport, the wait maybe 2 minutes! So pay a fortune in tourist area or save a fortune at this hotel. For me, no problems!
It’s a decent, clean, relatively roomy hotel with a comfortable bed and a nice shower. It’s not perfect but they are trying. The only very annoying thing is that wifi doesn’t always work in the room (and the stairwell's pretty scary). Staff are relatively helpful. There are a couple of restaurants around the block, a supermarket downstairs, and a McDonald’s. It’s about a 10-minute walk to Line 10’s JingSong station.
