Two weeks at this hotel - have stayed here before - and the place has gone downhill a little.
Furniture is a little shabby and management needs to take steps to enforce the recently-regulated interior smoking ban.

Although mainly found Chinese travellers there, I found it great. Staff were very helpful. There was at least one person who could speak in English. They also told me how to get about in the subway when asked. However, if you want to travel to Great Wall, hotel will not arrange a tour bus for you. I hired a taxi because I had one day allocated to go to Great Wall and it suited me. Also, hotel will not arrange airport transfer bus. There are taxis, and I took one, as I had luggage that I cannot carry in the subway. I found Chinese people as helpful people. Some will take a few minutes to show you directions. These seldom happen in a western country. If you know Chinese language, even a little, it will definitely help, as a few can communicate in English.

Front desk staff spoke very minimal English, but tried. The room was ok size however house keeping could use some pointers on how to keep a room clean. There were sunflower seeds on the floor when we arrived and still there 6 days later. There was noticeable mold on the wall near the front door, the whole hotel could use a fresh coat of paint. The name on the front of the hotel didn't say Beijing Meiyuan Hotel at all. It was called Golden Inns. Plus google and expedia pined it in the wrong location. Not far off but left us going in circles for a while. Keep walking pass the Shangyuan hotel ( according to google it was behind this hotel) and pass the university (expedia said it was next to the university) after the street turns to your right you have to go left on a cross street. Its across from the aquarium zoo and over pass.
