“Incredible Room, Location.”
2 Bedroom Suite was huge!! Very comfortable. Pool was very nice, locker rooms were very clean as well. My wife said the room service meal was so so but there are plenty of nice resaraunts close by. The hotel is connected to a huge 10 story mall so there was lot's of shopping including a convenience store. By far the best part of the trip was shopping at "Silk Road". It is a 7 story mall with excellent quality knock-offs of every major brand. Be ready to negotiate, as I got into the swing of things you could buy stuff for 10-15% of their asking price. It is 98% cute Chinese girls who speak excellent English and they are tough, just be ready to walk away and they will give in. If I could bring them back to the US and build a sales staff with them I would be a Billionare in 2 years. McDonalds and KFC are just a Heartbeat or Heartattack away if you need them. Great little tour company in the lobby with English speaking guides to take you to see the local sights. Beware of the "Foot Massage" place they might take you, They get you in a room while you are getting an incredible footrub and then a Chinese Herbal Doctor and a Tibeten Doctor reads your palm and offers to cure you for a few hundred bucks. This experience will rival any timeshare presentation that you may have been to. Great hotel, great price and great location.
“Joy City in Xidan, Beijing”
Strength of the hotel is it's location in Xidan area of Beijing, one of the main shopping areas of the city. It is actually part of the same complex as the Joy City Shopping Mall, although if you are not interested in the typical upscale shoes, jewelry, trendy clothing attire of this type of shopping mail, then there are many other older and newer stores and malls within 10 minutes walking distance. The closest Metro stop is also only a five minute walk to the south, making possible access to most of Beijing without difficulty.
