Comfortable and convenient

Posted Jan 6, 2014
Pros: The best thing about this hotel was the location - if you want this neighborhood.
Cons: The hall carpet needs to be cleaned or replaced!
Location: There's a Belgian beer bar nearby with some of the typical imported beer. Foreigners here. A few more blocks and a good street of restaurants.
Stayed a week here, Fall 2013. It is 1 km from Sanlitun and even closer to many restaurants in the neighborhood. In the opposite direction, you are on a busier street and access to subway. I was on the 6th floor facing the street. Window could open; blinds could be drawn to make the room dark. In-room internet was reliable and good enough. (I hard wired my laptop and made it an access point to share via WiFi). I think there might also be WiFi. 7-11 is just about next door and convenient; I could even buy some ice there (small bags). The cafe in the hotel is okay - not terrible. Food was pre-wrapped in cellophane - a little high-priced - like airplane food. I only used it one time. There is some parking in back - which we made use of. One of us was a Chinese speaker so I can't comment on the availability of English speaking at the desk, but they were typical and professional. Yes, there is some DWV odor from the toilet - just keep the door closed. The room was clean enough, cleaning is available every day if you want it. Bars and restaurants nearby and Sanlitun an easy enough 1 km walk. The room was small ("cute" or "cozy" in real estate speak) but still okay for two. The bathroom was clean with an excellent shower. So, in summary: it is not one of the modern 4 star hotels but a serviceable and clean older (smaller rooms) hotel. If I needed to be in this neighborhood again, I would stay here, unless my company was paying - then I might move up a star.

Great value & English speaking reception

Posted Apr 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
Great value for the price. Earlier commentators had complained about "no English speakers". Not now. Always at least one of the receptionists spoke good english. 10-15 min walk to Sanlitun Village and the shopping there. A block and a half to subway station.

Easy to get home.

It's the exact same as 7 Days Inn. same room layout and such. The breakfast does suck, but there's a fastfood joint next door. This is one of those "good enough" hotels if you're on a budget. I like this place because it's right across from the hospital, meaning all you have to do is tell the taxi driver to go to the East door of Chaoyang hospital and you're there. Nothing makes me more anxious than trying to explain to the taxi where my hotel is if they don't know the address!

The staff was unfriendly and the bathromm smelled. We did not get any hair dryer since all of them were lent.
