Good hotel but poor service

Good location behind Forbidden Palace. Its about 20mins walk to the nearest sub-way station.. Guest room is clean. Service from the staffs are average not particularly enthusiastic. The tour agency located within the hotel is untrustworthy. The tour guides pressurized guests to be punctual so that they can get us to 3 locations( a jade shop, a crystal shop and a local produce shop) to do shopping. On the way back instead of sending us back to hotel, they simply off loaded all of us near the bird nest stadium. As we are leaving on an early morning flight, the hotel is unable to pre-book a taxi for us. We have to wave down a taxi by the road side at 4:30 in the morning.

Visit Pan Jia Yuan(next to Pan Jia Yuan subway station) where one may see vendor of all kinds of old stuffs, antiques, books, jades etc. Do not patronize those unlicensed by the street, they could gang up to force you to buy once you bargained and then back off.

Convenient central Beijing location

The location was convenient but staff were not very helpful. I stayed there for 14 days but my bed sheets were never changed. Bathroom was pretty ordinary and breakfast was hopeless. Once I got used to finding my own way I was not bother that much about the hotel staff. Keeping a 500 Yuan deposit in Cash was bit of a silly Idea as we need that cash for spending and not to keep in the hotel deposit. During checkout reception staff waited until cleaning staff went into my room and confirmed everything was OK before releasing my deposit. Bit too much for me! However, I enjoyed the stay. Only two/three minutes from rear exit of the Forbidden City.

Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

Buy a Travel Pass for Beijing and it is valid for all kinds of transport and is very cheap. From the Hotel, walk towards rear exit of Forbidden City and Behai Park is just at the far end. Only 10 minutes walk.

Economical accommodation

Walking distance to sub-way and to the busy Wangfujing Centre. Close proximity to Forbidden City, Art museum, and Jing Shan Garden. Also very close to the old Beijing University building . Staff are friendly. In my room the amenities were bad: TV antenna not connected, and the cable for internet broken. I think they should enforce the maintenance and inspection. Weird smell in the lift; the sink was cracked in my room. Room rate was great though.

Need to reconsider to select this hotel

This hotel can only be classified as 2-Star hotel. The bathroom is too narrow and the bedroom is small, there is no proper cabinet for clothes. The bedroom is deem which made difficulty in reading. The good thing is the staffs are very friendly, Front Office and Housekeeping. It is easy to take a bus to Wangfujing (Bus # 103) and Xidang (Bus # 109), where there are LRT Exchange available to go anywhere.

Great time

I love this place, close to everything, short walk to the royal garden and forbidden city. The staff at this hotel is top, specially the manager. The little thing that need to be improve - The carpet need a good clean up - The smelly sewer in the massage area need to be clear. - the bed is so hard. I will comeback for sure. Top place best value for $ and staff is so helpful.

This is not a 4 star hotel...

The room which we were given was incredibly small and looked very tired and worn out. The heating was on extremely high and seemed to be broken. When we flicked the switch to 'cool', more hot air came out, when we flicked the switch to 'off' hot air still came out. We eventually left the window open all night when it was -7 or 8 celcius outside and that managed to bring the room down to a more comfortable level of heating. On the plus side, staff were very helpful and the room was fairly cheap, but I guess you get what you pay for.. Luckily, we were only at the hotel for one night, any longer would have been intolerable...

Thought we were getting a good deal

The hotel looks like it is in a good location on the map but no taxis would EVER take us there. Coming from the south train station, we asked 6 taxis before the 7th one was persuaded to take us. The concierge was horrible, they struggled to give us directions to the supermarket and all of the tours they offered were shopping based. We had to go to a local hostel to book tours, do laundry and get reasonable restaurant recommendations. Our hotel sent us to the most touristy and expensive pekking duck restaurant. Although our room was only €30 per night, it was not worth it!

Location is the best reason for

Location is the best reason for staying here, it's less than 5min walk to the north (rear) entrance of the Forbidden City which is perfect for getting in at 8.30am and beating the crowds. The subway is a 20min walk but still quite accessible for other sights e.g. Summer Palace and Olympic stadium. The concierge staff spoke great English and were extremely helpful, there is a business centre for booking tours and rooms were clean and reasonable. Note the free Internet access is only if you have your own computer.
