This is a great hotel from which to explore Beijing. It is very close to Peking and Renmin Universities. However you will need to travel a bit to get to the Tiananmen square and the Forbidden city. Having said that, the hotel is very close to metro lines 4 and 10 which makes moving around very easy. The hotel itself was great, with very professional staff and very comfortable rooms. Don't miss the breakfast buffet, which is excellent.

Our room was comfortable with a huge comfortable queen size bed that came with 4 pillows. Bathroom was nice with marble floors and walls, complete with a tub and separate shower and separate toilet! But looks were somewhat deceiving as the toilet stopped flushing twice. Having a separate shower was great, except the water doesn't drain completely after use and water sometimes seeped out into the adjacent toilet area. In the room itself, your treated to a nice sized LCD TV with loads of channels, but I wish they had more English channels....there's only so much Discovery channel you can watch at night. As for other hotel amenities, the indoor heated pool was nice as there's almost never people in it. There's also 3 restaurants inside, Thai, Chinese and an international buffet. Weirdest thing though was every floor we went to smelled like cat urine in the morning. Strange...but overall the stay was comfortable.
But the problem is location. It's in a quiet more residential district that's far from central Beijing. Although it's on the main artery, it's about 40min from the airport, so getting to Tian'anmen square takes almost 25 min by bus. The bus stop is about 3 min walk but the nearest subway was about a 10 min walk. Best suggestion if you want to take the subway, is to take the bus 1 stop to the Wukesong station. Good food is rare here as well. But I guess you get what you pay for.

A wonderful experience. The staff were very accommodating and went out of their way at every opportunity to help us find tourist locations and find the way via the tube. They supported me with the process of sending an important document to the uk and the contacted our tour operater who we were struggling to speak to. Breakfast was provided however there was not much of an option. More variety for uk travellers is required: e.g beans, cheeses, etc overall an excellent service.
