Best kept SecretPosted Jan 20, 2015
Pros: large pool Bamboo gardens cleanliness restaurant environment
Cons: Western food could be better...but this is China.
Location: cloe to subway and second ring road. Heart of the city.
As an avid swimmer, the Hotel offers the best sized pool in Beijing, short of the Olympic stadium pool. The Bamboo Garden is a favorite summer hideaway to enjoy a beer and a snack surrounded by an oasis of greenery with Goldfish enjoying the calm. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the Chinese food is great. The "boat restaurant" offers a number of floating eating hideaways inside boats that are actually floating. This is a great place to finish a long day with good friends and a bottle of wine. I enjoy myself when I stay at this hotel and have been going back for many years....but don't tell anyone!

Beijing's best kept secretPosted Jan 15, 2015
I have been going to this hotel since it was built. It is in a great location near the 2nd ring road and subway station. The hotel was renovated a few years ago...transformed would be a better description. The swimming pool is huge! For an avid swimmer like me this is awesome. It is open to 11 PM every day. It has a sauna as well. A restaurant allows you to sit in floating boats like a Chinese fishing village...such a surprising environment. The. Shanghai restaurant is like a Palace environment and the ground floor Bamboo garden is an oasis in the summer. A surprising and pleasant experience.

Nice, classy hotel, very close to public transportPosted Nov 18, 2014
Hotel room was wonderful. There was a little problem with the language barrier since I don't speak Chinese and most of the staff doesn't speak English, but overall good stay. However, the Hotel restaurant was less than desirable. We waited 30 minutes for the bill. I finally had to walk across the restaurant to interrupt the wait staff from their hang out around the host stand and ask for the check. Food there was over priced and nasty.

No air-con during AutumnPosted Oct 27, 2014
Cons: Improve on the internet speed and must have air-con facility.
Location: Good foods available around the hotel.
Hotel shut- down the air-con during our stay (23~25 Oct). Was informed by Front Desk that hotel will shut-down the air-con during the Autumn period. We had difficult times to sleep as the room was warm. We requeted for a fan and was informed that there was no fan available! Overall, the staffs were helpful.

Seul Bémol, les bouteilles d'eau avaient déjà préalablement été ouverte, non remplacé, juste à nouveau remplies.

Its a nice hotel.....but remember....it's ChinaPosted Oct 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
Picked this hotel for location,which is fantastic, rates, which were good, and photos, which looked nice. The room was very large and nicely appointed. It needed the carpets cleaned as there were a lot of stains. The biggest issue was the air conditioner, which they evidently turn off at some point in October. The room was warm and their suggestion was to open the windows. Have you ever seen the smog in Beijing? It was a bit of a struggle before one of the rooms was switched to a wing where the a/c was running at partial. That was after a "discussion" where they wanted to charge me like $100us a day more. I prevailed and the rest of the stay was nice. Breakfast was good. not great. but varied and good. Staff in general was very helpful. I would stay there again
