Great location.....nothing else good to say

Posted Oct 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
The location is PERFECT. The hotel needs some updating and the staff have an attitude problem. The first room we got smelt like sewage. They only had 1 other room available that was smoking when we booked non-smoking. The hair dryer was broken and took almost an hour to get a new one. Toilet in the room almost never flushes. There is no wifi in the rooms, need to go to the lobby to use it. When I checked out they billed me for the minibar and phone calls from the first room that smelt like sewage. So I ended up having to pay for someone else's expenses. And I used to live in Beijing and I am Fluent in mandarin. If you can't speak mandarin. Good luck with thus hotel.

Badly need renovation but great location

Posted Jul 24, 2013
Pros: Location.
Cons: Complete renovation.
Location: It's the center of Beijing. Nothing else get you closer to the Forbidden City closer. But pay extra and walk a few minutes longer, you'd better off.
This is one of the few still state owned and operated hotels in Beijing. I really regret booking 2 nights here. The bathroom is so old and dirty. It literally stunk. They should just re-gut the whole place. Breakfast is outrageously expensive, $30/person. We ended up spending the same across the street at the Grand Hyatt enjoying an absolutely fantastic meal. It's got a golden location. Walking to WangFuJing, Oriental Plaza, and TianAnMen is very easy and quick. We fell for the name and location of the hotel, but it's not an enjoyable experience inside due to the outdated interiors. 2 star is the most I can rate this one.

Only equivalent to three and a half star hotel

Posted Jun 12, 2013 on Hotels.com
Not happy at all when they tried to short change me with a lousy room when we booked for a room with Forbidden City view and it was past midnight when we arrive so we insisted on changing the room which is quite unsettling. Hotel toiletries are not complete bath robe is torn and no coffee in the room!

Good experience with the hotel except that the web reservation did not match the contract received by the hotel regarding the number of people for free breakfast. So make sure your web reservation is available when check in. Good quality service. Breakfast is good. Room is clean and location is the best!

Given a smoking room. When tried to change, told there were no available non-smoking rooms. Generally a bit drab. Good location though.

Best part is being attached to Raffles Lounge

Posted Apr 19, 2012 on Hotels.com
Old hotel, smelly, understaffed at front desk. No free wifi even in the lobby...BUT, free in adjoining Raffles Hotel Lobby which has a lovely bar and fantastic service. Stayed one night super glad we didn't choose this as our primary hotel!

Dirty world

Posted Mar 8, 2012 on Hotels.com
If you're looking for a dirty place, this is the one!. Everything was full of dust, walls, balcony, TV, table, etc; also, the bathroom full of hair, not mine because I'm bald. Bad smell inside the bathroom because the poor ventilation. it is an emblematic hotel but the attendants barely speak english. If you don't want to stay in the middle of the dirt, don't waste your money here. It says it is a 5 star hotel, I don't give 1/2 star.
