Staff & service




Property conditions & facilities

4/5 Good

Liked: Staff & service, room comfort
A conveniently located hotel that could be better
Hotel is in a good location near Forbidden City and Wangfujing, although nearest subway is 15-20 mins walk. Free soft drinks in mini-bar is a plus. Room is spacious with a large closet and a attached small bamboo garden patio that you can sit outdoors and relax. Bedding is firm and comfortable. Overall impression is that the hotel looks dated and not well maintained as one may expect from seeing the photos at the website. Room is not very clean as we found hairs around the wash basin. Had to be very careful taking shower as water may easily overflow out of the shallow shower tray area into bathroom.
