Stayed at Ariva double storey suite from 30th June-13th july ( Room 1303) and on 22nd July ( Room 1246). Both suites are superb, room 1303 is near the lift but 1246 is like a 150m walk to the lift. Ask for non smoking floor if you do not smoke and also a room near to the lift.
Love the glass panel attached bathroom on the second floor. I slept very well all the nights I stayed in the hotel. And they have a distinctive "Ariva scent" to all their toiletries, i never used those things provided by hotels, but those from Ariva - I really love them. They allow you to place your luggage after you checked out, i kept mine over there for 10 days when I head over to Inner Mongolia. Late checkout is at 2pm, you just got to request from them.

Generally positive. The hotel is in a nice neighborhood with many kinds of Chinese food right at door step. If you want a quick bite of taste from home McDonald's and KFC are only 5 minutes of walk away. Subway stations were a bit further at about 10-15 minutes of walk but it was ok. Quite a few universities in the area, making it relatively safer than others.
This hotel has smoking rooms and i was assigned to one of those, and i am a non-smoker personally so it was quite annoying to me. Windows were dusty on the outside but it was Beijing. Hotel was right beside a train track so if you are not an early morning person, expect some noise as the sun rises.

I have stayed in the main building (number 1) and building number 4 several times. The main building is the only one to stay in. It is fully renovated and offers a degree of comfort well above the other buildings in this large complex. The bed is far superior and the rooms are large (luxurious). The grounds are very beautiful and if you like jogging, a couple of circuits will cover around 1.5km. There is a western restaurant, but the food is so-so. It is popular with local chinese, which is somewhat surprising. During my last stay at the end of August, I have grown tired of the hotel, which has become more expensive over time.
