We stayed here in July 2011 for a weekend. The room was wonderful & we ate all of our meals right at the hotel. We had a wonderful trip planned by one of the staff to the Great Wall. Our girls want to stay here again when we return to Beijing, even though they were maintaining the pool last summer & they didn't get to swim. We didn't have any trouble with taxi drivers finding it.

Everything was very clean & appeared to be well maintained. Staff was very helpful & easy to communicate with, which was wonderful since we don't speak much Mandarin at all.

We stayed here for seven nights 8 - 16 March 2012. Myself and my family come to Beijing often and live in China.

If you are looking for a 4 star hotel experience with free internet (a lot of hotels of this standard charge you extra for it!) at a reasonable price then this is a good place to stay. If you are looking for prime location then it is perhaps not the best option.

One of the reasons we chose this hotel was based on previous reviews of the concierge "Storm". We had our parents-in-law with us and needed good service. He did a good job organizing of the beaten track trips for us (ie the Great Wall with a local village meal thrown in or excellent non-touristy restaurants), booking travel tickets and generally taking care of us. It was nice to have someone there with connections in the city available 24 / 7.

The hotel all round is of a good standard. Rooms have a safe, flat screen tv, nice bath tub for a soak, comfortable mattresses and pillows, sofa, desk, good lighting options etc. There is a decent enough pool and a basic fitness area. If you book a club room then bare in mind it is no different really from a deluxe room but you will get access into the executive lounge which means free drinks all day and free food between 6 - 8pm. This was a worthwhile option for us.

The breakfast is good and I particularly liked Amy who kept the staff on track, maintaining a peaceful and pleasant environment. She was always very courteous to us. We dined at the Zen restaurant and found the food to be quite good, though it was a little slow to come out.

I feel obliged to mention location. The hotel is in south west Beijing, great for the West Train Station but... if you want to see downtown Beijing with the forbidden city, wanfujiang, beihai, houhai, hutongs etc. then you will need to travel 30 mins in a taxi.

Bear in mind the acrobatic shows, silk market and pearl market are East side. The bird's nest and 798 district are north side. If you want to go to the Great Wall then that is north of Beijing. Basically you will be crossing the city for all these attractions which is added journey time!

If you want to get to the nearest tube station I would say it is not walkable. Took me 25 mins on a bus, a taxi would take 15 mins but they are not always easy to get outside the hotel.

Having said that the hotel is great. You are getting a cracking price for the quality of hotel and we felt the money saved during our stay more than paid or the extra journey time.

I stayed here with my husband & kids. The place is awesome, rooms and bathrooms extremely clean, and no issues whatsoever. Didnt have food here though the spread looked decent. There were absolutely no hassles anywhere.
The staff was extremely helpful, smiling always & making full effort to meet our needs. In a city, where almost no one speaks English, we managed to find a few staff who could understand & communicate in english. Believe me, in China, this is the biggest asset.
The manager showed us a couple of rooms & allowed us to choose a room of our choice. On one incident, one of the staff members actually accompanied my husband to a chemist in order to explain what medication we were looking for.
The swimming pool was not too large, but very clean and well-maintained. No probs with fresh towels, etc.
My kids really enjoyed the stay here. Would certainly like to visit this place again.
We also managed to get a package at very decent rates. Would certainly recommend this to Indian tourists, who will enjoy the experience here.
Location-wise, its not too far from the Forbidden City & the Tiananmen Square. Both within 5km radius from the hotel.

The hotel is in a less crowded and commercial part of the 2nd ring. Basic amenities, old interior, and lifeless executive lounge. I was staying here only for the sake of convenience for work. If you are on a tight budget this might be satisfactory.
