Nice place, good pricePosted May 11, 2014 on Hotels.com
I liked this place. One receptionist spoke quite good english, the other ones spoke almost none. Everything was clean and the breakfast was good. The hotel was stylishly decorated. I stayed at the beehive room. It was like staying in a japanese capsule hotel, except a bit more space. The only confusing experience was when I asked about the breakfast. The receptionist said that it is not included in my room. When I told her that their webpage advertises free breakfast, she changed her mind her mind and said that yes it is included in my room.

HoneyComb Room is Very NoisyPosted Mar 23, 2014
Pros: The stuff is courteous.
Cons: The honeycome room should be insulated from noise and cigarette smell. The shower room should have some privacy by adding curtains.
Location: Location is not very convenient for public transportation.
I lived in that Honeycomb room for 2 nights. The room is very noisy. The door is a metal door with many big holes covered with green color curtain. Essentially, it is like you are living in a hallway. You can hear anyone walking pass your door, your neighbor talking on the phone, sipping the water and unzipping the luggage. You can smell the cigarette smell when your next door neighbor smoke, because the room is made of wood panels, and is not insulated. The shower room is just an open room, there is no privacy, because each shower stall is not separated. The bathroom is constantly without toilet paper. I have to move to a different hotel. The honeycomb room is a good idea, but unfortunately, it is not in a livable condition. You can live in a much better condition with similar price somewhere else.

my first visit to BeijingPosted Sep 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
the hotel is far from the subway so I haf to take a taxi (20 RMB) one way or I had to go 4km too far... the hotel is nice but the sound isolation is poor. the best thing in this hotel is the resption personal always helpful and always smile. if you are a turist and want to see the city don't book this hotel.

Fun for a budget, not expensive to upgradePosted Aug 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
Great and very accommodating service, great variety of guests to get to know. The "honeycomb" beds are a little adventure, but it doesn't cost much to get a real room instead. The real rooms are gorgeous.

798 on a BudgetPosted Jun 17, 2013 on Hotels.com
What they don't tell you: The hotel staff does not speak English. The honeybee cabins are bigger and more comfortable than you expected, but if you stay more than one night, they have to keep changing your key, which is annoying. Also, the walls are paper-thin so if you have neighbors, you will be able to hear even the quietest whispering. There is no free breakfast. Several times I put the "do not disturb" sign on the door, and they still cleaned the room. The location is great for visiting 798 Art District, but not much else because there are no subway stations close by. The toilets are squat-style and showers are public with no individual stalls. There was comfortable air conditioning and common areas to sit. Overall, this is great for the price, but be warned that there are consequences for the price.

Very bad experience, the small room is a tent in this hotel, no bathroom or sink in the room. This is not a room, we can not stand , really small.

Value for moneyPosted Oct 1, 2012
Cons: Bathroom partition
Value for money only. They have breakfast and that's good. Rooms are small and less space. Bathroom with glass partition so if you are alone or with love once then it is good else it is a big problem. Staff have very bad English. We had to thrusty because staff were not understanding that we wanted water. English is such poor. Else location is on main road. Still I will prefer this hotel as it is central to many places and good value

great stay for a great pricePosted Sep 3, 2012 on Hotels.com
if u r into art, then this hotel is very close to the 798 art district, which is positioned just far enough away from the clang and clutter of central beijing.

Toilet like a fish tank.Posted Aug 26, 2012
Pros: It was clean.
Cons: Cigarette smell everywhere.
I stayed on the 7th floor, which was supposedly a non-smoking room, but the hotel reeked of cigarettes. The lobby had no smoking signs, which were ignored. All television channels are in Chinese, which may be a turnoff to some travelers. Also, the toilet area is I encased in glass like a fish tank, so be ready to put on a show if your with someone else. The rooms were clean and it was inexpensive. The hotel has potential for the business traveler, but the holiday inn express is a better value. Sadly, it was full during my visit.

The first time in BeijingPosted Aug 25, 2012
Pros: Nice design
Location: Suburbs of Beijing, hard to get from the city
The hotel is located on the suburbs of beijng with out a proper subway line close by and with only the bus system as a public method of transportation but takes around 40 minutes to make it to the downtown from the hotel by bus. The staff even though was really nice and helpful there was not a single person who speak a fluent English what makes the communication harder
