The hotel is located in a building also containing offices of various NGO and governmental associations and meeting rooms. Many of its visitors are there for conferences or exchange programs, including many students. It is a good choice if that is your purpose in visiting, not a particularly good choice for the average tourist. Both rooms in which we stayed were much larger than average, though somewhat awkwardly arranged.(In one, you could not see the TV from the bed. In the other there was only a bench, and no chair, by the desk.The furnishings were dated (when did you last see a CRT TV in a hotel room?) but clean and well-maintained. The baths had deep tubs, good showers and plenty of hot water. The hotel is two very long blocks from the nearest subway station. There are many restaurants and small shops around and a Wumart - large department store with a very large grocery store - near the subway stop. There was generally someone at the concierge desk with adequate to good English, though the front desk people rarely spoke any. The wifi was free, but very slow, adequate for email, but not much else.

My host at Beijing Normal University booked a few nights accommodation for my academic visit. The room was enormous (I think he booked a larger room type), easily twice the size of the last hotel room I stayed at in Hong Kong.

Furnishings are rather old but well maintained. The bathroom is large with full sized bathtub, shower and very comprehensive range of toiletries (including toothbrush, toothpaste, shaving kit etc.). Bathrobes, slippers, iron, in room safe... Everything is well stocked.

Breakfast has a good range of mostly chinese food, although there is an eggs station and some toast and muffins. Coffee machine but no English breakfast tea.

Location is most convenient for any university activities. Not as convenient for metro access but easy to get taxis (beware traffic though).

My only major complaint is the bed. Like all chinese beds, it was rock hard and I was full of aches and pains when sleeping and upon waking. A hot shower was essential to get moving... This is pervasive across all hotels in China. Local hotels have much harder beds while international chains would have softer beds to cater to foreign tourists.

I stayed a week in Jingshi Hotel invited by Beijing Normal University.

I agree with other reviews that it is a perfect place if your activities are mostly centered at the University, and reasonably well-communicated by subway to the center (about 40 min).
Jishuitan subway stop is about 1 km from the hotel along a noisy street, so the bus card will
be useful here (0.40 each trip, 2 bus stops to Jishuitan).
Near the hotel one can find some bars and small stores to buy water, drinks,... There is a big shopping center 300 m after Jishuitan subway stop.

Guest rooms are very spacious in floors 15-16, so one can expect nice views of Beijing traffic.
Wifi is not so good in the rooms, but there is Ethernet cable. Bathroom and cleaning service are ok, with lots of complimentary ítems: sleepers, combs, shaving razors,... plus 2 free bottles of water/day.

Meals are served on a buffet basis. Food is reasonably good and varied, although I would recommend going downtown, since dinners become a bit boring and repetitive after a few days. The buffet price is a bit high (128 yuan), but in my case it was payed by BNU.

It is hard to find good English speaking personnel (like elsewhere in China), but I actually didn't need much of them. Still, once I forgot the key inside, and asking with a smile I did certainly get some help.

In conclusión, this is a good place for BNU guests (I had no other choice), and a reasonable 4 star hotel for western standards. Yet, if you are interested in tourism and Beijing life, I would rather recommend lodging in the center and being closer to the hutong life.

The Jingshi hotel is an OK place to stay in Beijing. It has everything that one needs for a cheap but OK stay in the capital of China.

However you should not expect a first class hotel. The rooms are clean and the bed and bath are functional. In room cable internet is free.

Yet, the equipment of the rooms has come into some age. When have I ever seen a non-flatscreen in a hotel room? I can't remember.

The service at the hotel may be the biggest problem. It seems that NOBODY speaks any English. But despite that the staff was friendly and helpful.

All in all an OK, clean and safe place to stay in Beijing.

The facilities were quite alright. For someone visiting the University it is very convenient and it is also pretty much very well situated with regard to access to transport. I had no trouble with A/C and the room was very clean. They also provide a rich buffet breakfast.
My major issue was that, in spite of the fact that I had confirmed 3 times(!!!), my booking was nowhere registered because of the fact that the staff has a hard time communicating with non-Chinese customers -they barely speak any English- and they seem to be ill-trained. No skills, no efficiency or interest in helping customers... Although asked for assistance (!) they sit back and watch in a very "stoic" way helpless and angry customers who try to figure out how they will get a taxi to the airport in the middle of the night or how they will reach to the Great Wall. Oh! Forget about Wi-Fi ...

Room Tip: Rooms on the west side of the hotel have a better view although I am not sure about the noise as they are above a busy road. Maybe you could chose one of the top floors.
