Cool if youre attenting the zoo or convention centPosted Apr 19, 2014 on Hotels.com
Ok hotel. A bit old and far from everything lively. Not too bad for the price - you pay for what you get. Everything was comfortable, the rooms service food was surprisingly really good...just the location is boring.

MAP EXACTLY OPPOSITE OF HOTEL LOCATION!Posted Apr 4, 2012 on Hotels.com
The hotel was fine. Nothing special and the staff was rude. However, it has to be noted that the map of the hotel on the Hotels.com site is completely wrong. I wandered for an hour using the map. The hotel is on the same side of the road as the Zoo! Please pay no attention to the map, and either call ahead, or exit the subway stop at the zoo, face the zoo on the same side of the road as the entrance and look to your right. There you will see the sign for the Exhibition Center, and within that area, the hotel.

Could be betterPosted Sep 17, 2008
The hotel was clean and the lobby attractive. The physical condition of the room we got was unsatisfactory. There was a musty odor as if the room had been wet and closed up and there were streaks in the paint on the wall as if the walls had been scraped in places and repainted in spots. The towels were treadbare and did nothing for the absorbsion of water. The staff was pleasant for the most part but communication was difficult as only one member of staff had conversational English. The most upsetting thing was that we left our luggage in storage for a few hours after we checked out and found out that our luggage was searched after we left and without us being told that it was required. When i sought an explanation members of staff were mute.

Ok for the pricePosted Aug 30, 2008
The main reception area and bar are of a reasonable standard. The staff are efficient and speak some english. They are picky about the condition of travellers checks which must be pristine for them to accept them. The rooms are a little tired but adequate and clean.

SatisfiedPosted Aug 30, 2008
The hotel staff were very helpful and courteous. Within walking distance of shopping. The beds were hard but we slept well in the dark room. No hair dryer as stated. I would return there.

Not impressive, but not expensive eitherPosted Aug 14, 2008
Tucked away between the Soviet-style exposition hall (home of the Beijing Philharmonic) and a little park heavily used by locals, this aging hotel is not bad, but is no 4 or 5 star experience. If you need an inexpensive, central place to stay in Beijing, it will do just fine. It's about a six block walk to a major subway station.

Good price, needs some improvementPosted May 2, 2008 on Hotels.com
The hotel is not in the best location to be able to walk to any attractions. You must take a cab and/or subway to any location you would like to see and/or do. Also, checkout takes much longer than needed. Make sure to give yourself 30 minutes before you leave in order to have a smooth checkout. We were the only ones in line and did not have any extra charges and it still took 20-30 minutes. The hotel was very clean and the staff was friendly.
