The Zhaolong is an excellent choice for a reasonably priced business hotel in the diplomatic area of Beijing, centrally located, right next to a metro station, with an excellent buffet breakfast. Staff are helpful even if they don't smile. On the down side, the carpets had cigarette burns, and the shower drains do not drain, and there is a tiny sign that is out of view saying the tap water is non-potable, so use the bottled water provided.
The embassy district offers a healthy nightlife and well-developed department store culture. Commerce, high finance, and international corporations are established here. The popular Sanlitun bar strip pulsates through the night and Chaoyang Park offers 320 hectares of recreational distractions by day. The World Trade Center, International Exhibition Center, and Agriculture Exhibition Center are also found here, and Jiuxianqiao electronics town is on the northwest fringe.
