The Rainbow is close to Honquaio Airport and tran station and yet closeenough to down town.
Check in is actually ok - the hotel a bit dated, but not bad at all for the money. I would definatly recommend it.
The only negative is getting a Taxi - that can be a real pain and you will easily loose it with the people outside who do little to help. Better to walk down the road and hail one for yourself

Make sure you get a card from reception with hotel directions in Chinese and English. This you hand to taxi drivers etc because not many drivers speak English. If you just say Hilton Beijing they have no idea what you are talking about. Tiananmen Square is not to be talking about openly and you also need written directions for there or anywhere you wish to go. Even the staff out front don't understand English.

If one wants to avoid getting stuck in Beijing's traffic, the hotel is a reasonable option for one night stay for those who catch flight next day. Although very close to airport by birds' mile, it's hard to get to. Cabbies don't know where it is because it's hidden inside a campus. My cab driver called hotel for direction but can only managed to get the area. He finally had to stop the car and download Baidu map to find the exact location. Even with GPS pointing out, we still have a hard time because from outside it looked like we were entering some organization's drive way. The sign was terribly small. One has to know beforehand where it is to see it.
My problem originates from not being able to get hotel's shuttle bus, which runs by hour in non-peak time. It presumably should go to two stops in the airport. I arrived at the stop shortly after 2:30PM, should have no problem to catch the shuttle for 3:30, but the shuttle never came. I did not have Chinese cellphone, so when I borrowed someone's cell to call around 3:38, I was told the bus already came and returned from airport. I asked to pick me up but was told it wouldn't come until 4:30. The bus simply didn't come to the stop of my terminal although the staff insisted it came and I missed it.
The front desk staffs were friendly. The room was clean although a little dated. The shuttle next day departing from the hotel was on time. Restaurant was very expensive; food was like one week old from freezer.
