It was a very nice hotel and the staff was very helpful during our stay. I understand they will be closing for renovations in April ... so if we ever visit
Beijing again.. we will definitely look up this hotel!

This hotel is in a perfect location. Chongwenmen subway station is right outside the front door, and two large malls are close by. It is also very centrally located to get to many of the must see sights in Beijing via subway. The hotel staff was helpful and our room was always clean.

This is absolutely the best hotel in Beijing. The service was wonderful. The room was excellent. The concierge was especially helpful in arranging taxi rides and any other travel needs. The breakfast was delicious! This is always my first choice of hotels in Beijing.

On the whole a good hotel. Reception staff speak good English (even when I checked in at 10pm) and were very friendly and helpful. Corridors smell very strongly of smoke, but no smell in rooms. Good size room, great facilities, very clean. Restaurant has decent food but not great value - there are plenty of restaurants not far away. Would not recommend breakfast as plenty of better (value and quality) options nearby.
Hotel is very well located for city centre - Yong'anli is the nearest metro stop, take exit A2, walk behind LG Twin Towers, turn right and it is around a 2 minute walk. Small night-time market in street outside hotel - avoid buying, but very safe, no trouble.
Sightseeing tours desk in reception - would recommend you avoid if at all possible! I only went as non-Mandarin speaking and couldn't find a better way to see the Great Wall. You will visit all the sites promised, but you'll be taken to a Jade factory (high pressure to buy at outrageously inflated prices from a shiny salesroom), tea house (nice introduction with tea tasting, but absolutely rip-off prices) and best of all a complimentary foot massage - during which doctors and professors will appear from all sides, read your palm for 10 seconds in order to prescribe you essential medicine, only £180 per month for 3 months! Good to get you up to the Great Wall if you're alone, but find your own way to city centre attractions for a much better experience with much less hard-selling!

This was our Tour hotel but I booked in 4 days early by myself. Taxis for everything as the subway 1/2 hour walk. Just too hard. Obviously the Tour operator gets a good rate because of position. See other comments below. It is just fine to stay but I really couldn't recommend as once our organised Tour finished, we stayed at an older hotel near to Tianamen Square that was cheaper and fantastic position for buses, subway and so much else.
