“ON THE DOORSTEP OF BIRD'S NEST STADIUM”
Great hotel right on the Beijing Olympic grounds next to the famous Bird's Nest Stadium. Can't beat the location. We stayed there during the Olympics and it was a fabulous location. Ask for a room that has a stadium view. Easy walk to tour the Olympic grounds.
“Good for conference in Beijin”
This is a very decent and reasonably priced hotel . At first we were intimidated by the smell of the room which had been a smoking room prior to our arrival. The concierge promised that if we go out for a while, the housekeeping will "do something" and it will be ok, and indeed by the time we came back from dinner, the smell was gone. We stayed for a week, during which the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The location is good, particularly if you are attending a conference at the convention center. I would stay there again.
“Excellent deal for BJ”
Unless you need to be downtown Beijing, this hotel is a great value. Located way North - next to the Olympic Stadium, it is not over priced and very comfortable. Staff is very accommodating. Room are clean and even business suites are affordable. A taxi ride to downtown will take you about 30 minutes depending on traffic and cost about $5.
“Great hotel close to Olympic park”
The Cactic is a well-maintained place, with the comforts one might come to expect of a hotel. Perhaps one of the best reasons to stay here is its proximity to the Olympic park and the China National Convention Center, without paying potentially dearly for one of the CNCC's adjoining hotels. My room was clean, comfortable, and well-appointed. Among the nice touches were the complimentary toothbrushes / vanity items and the loanable power strip, robe, and umbrella. Though non-Chinese speakers might occasionally hit a tiny bit of issue, the reception desk solved all my needs. The fitness room and business center are also appreciated, though the latter is quite overpriced.
The heating system was out of control in my first room but got a new one without problems. Fitness room is a bit basic. Nice lobby, nice rooms and good service. Especially good value for money.
“Great clean bed / bathroom a bit challenging”
Bed very clean, new and comfortable linens, firm mattress. Room itself clean, carpet had some cigarette burns, but room did not smell of cigarettes. AC was okay, but did little against the ever-present humidity. Bathroom dirty behind door (hair from previous guests, etc). Grout / caulk lines in bathroom look very dirty, previously white corners look black. Safety box key-board some digits did not work, and staff could not fix that besides replacing the batteries (with the old batteries it didn't work at all). Wireless connectivity to the in-house wireless access point work perfectly, Internet access to the rest of the world outside of China very spotty. Great buffet-style breakfast including Chinese and Western fare (80 yuan). Includes coffee / tea / juices. I would stay there again. Not the best, but a good value for the money.
