Comfortable hotel with old fashioned characterPosted Aug 2, 2014
Pros: Nice atmosphere, nice size and good location. Never too much hubbub in the lobby.
Cons: The elevator is slow and very busy. Although there is not likely much that can be done about this. You just need to chill, smile and be patient.
Location: I liked the location of the hotel very much. A pleasant 45 minute walk to the Tienanmen Sq. area. Bank and other convenience within 5 minute walk.
Built in 1918 this hotel has modern rooms and amenities without losing any of the original character or charm. There is wired internet in the room but wireless is at a cost of a rented modem which is installed promptly upon a call to the front desk. A 200 Yuan cash deposit is required and returned at check out less a 10 Yuan per charge for the modem. It was very hot during my stay and thankfully the A/C worked very well in my room. The bed was a a bit hard. It did sleep well so I guess the hard'ish' bed was better than I thought it would be. The sheets were clean, nice quality and all white, which I happen to like. The bathroom was clean and the shower was good. There is a large banquet room on the second floor used to serve a breakfast buffet everyday. The buffet is decent but not stellar. Fresh fried eggs are made as you wait and there are baked goods including toast for American style appetites. If the breakfast is not included in your room price you can pay cash or have charged to your room for 58 Yuan. There is a convenience store which houses a train ticket kiosk as well as an ATM machine inside the hotel. Also a nice coffee shop. The front desk staff is very polite and helpful

Not wonderfulPosted Nov 17, 2013 on Hotels.com
The reception staff at this hotel need to go on a customer care course, as their service was very poor. I had to change room during my stay and it took over an hour to sort this out! I felt that the hotel was looking to maximise its income from each guest rather than concentrating on offering a good experience. Beware the bottled water, as its very expensive, buy from one of the local shops, where its much, much cheaper. The quality of the food at the hotel wasn't very good and again its possible to get better food at reasonable prices in the area around the hotel. I wouldn't recommend this hotel.

Good value hotelPosted Oct 16, 2013
Rooms are spacey with many ammenities included. Our party got two rooms; one overlooking the street and the other facing inside. The former did not have windows that opened the other one does. The AC does not seem to work but that was not necessary.
