This is absolutely the best hotel in Beijing. The service was wonderful. The room was excellent. The concierge was especially helpful in arranging taxi rides and any other travel needs. The breakfast was delicious! This is always my first choice of hotels in Beijing.
We arrived before dawn on the first day and the hotel gave us early check in after some hours of waiting. Staff were efficient and small complaints were attended to promptly. We had an after midnight flight to catch and the hotel kept our lugggage between check out and pick up on the last day, while we went shopping in the city. Well connected to allow us to rely solely on public transports for airport and city connections. As it was winter we engaged a private tour (another story), but would surely use it as our base if visiting in spring or autumn.
I have travelled to many cities around the globe, and this hotel is certainly at the top in terms of location, service and amenities. The hospitality is also among the best. Plus, it's good for money, as the price is in the reasonable range, compared to other ones in china.
This Hotel was very cute. It's about a 5 minute walk to Dengushiku metro station and a 10 minutes walk to Wanfujing street. The Forbidden city and Tianamem Square are about a 25 minute walk. The bathroom could have been cleaner but overall a good hotel. Beijing is so big and sprawled that no location will be ideal so this is a good choice.
This was my second stay in the last 14 months. I decided to return because of its great location and great value and no less its great legacy. I first stayed at this hotel in 1996 on business. It was already a popular and reliable hotel for foreign business personnel. Although it's old, it's very well maintained. I hope it would not be replaced by a skyscraper given it's standing at such a prominent spot in this fast developing economy.
