Beijing's classic old hotel stands up to time.

Posted Jun 5, 2016
Pros: The sense of history. The staff are friendly and try their best.
Cons: It would be nice if breakfast was included. No menu in restaurant. Very minimal English is spoken at the reception.
Location: More space is needed for improvements.
When I first came to Beijing in 1983 we stayed in a Russian hotel but were brought to this hotel as part of a tour - it was Beijing's only international standard hotel. It is still in very good condition though the style seems more of the 20/30s than 1974 when it was built. It is in a great location for walking to Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden city.

Location, Classy, Traditional

Posted Feb 3, 2016 on Wotif
Pros: Really enjoyed it.
Location: Close to wang fu jing and yi he yuan.
The location of this hotel is superb, very close to wang fu jing. Close to a lot of places if you want to shop around. We wanted to experience this once was the most extravagant hotel in chian for so long. It was a pleasant stay I say. Not as bad as many reviews on here. if you are looking for a more modern touch, then this is not the place for you. But we were not looking for that type of stay, we knew what the rooms look like and we knew that it is rather traditional. But that doesn't mean the rooms are not fully equipped, everythings there for you in the room, besides we don't as much as young people need these days, we were very happy about our room.

Old hotel but close to many historic places

Posted Feb 1, 2016 on Hotels
This hotel is a classical em Beijing, but needs to have its rooms renewed. The entrance, lobby and restaurant are so pretty, but the room are preety old fashion. Furthermore, the air conditioning barely works. Besides, the staff almost can't speak english at all. It's a shame. Good thing is the location, just 10 min walk from Tiananmen Square forbidden city, and close to a lot of restaurant and to a big mall.

Pros: 交通拠点として、とても便利です。日中は交通渋滞なので、地下鉄駅は目の前で、王府井も至近で極めて便利な場所です。
Cons: フロントが愛想がない!!!
Location: 天安門 故宮 王府井が歩いて行ける。健脚ならば前門へも散歩出来ます。

An old hotel well located.

Posted Aug 19, 2015 on Hotels
The hotel location is good. But the hotel is rather old. Price is not cheap for such an old hotel. The rooms are big though. But too roomy.
