The hotel is good if you're in Beijing to relax and get away from the hustle of everyday life. However, if you're there to see the sights, it's not very convenient. The hotel is located quite far from the centre of the city, so there is very little to see or do. It was a frustrating experience because we were travelling with kids, and every time we wanted to go somewhere, we had to get a hotel taxi into the city first and then other transport from there. In addition, the staff spoke no English, so we couldn't get any help from them. When you enter the hotel lobby, it's beautiful and clean; however, the room was dusty and the carpet looked as though it had never seen a vacuum. The shower was really small. If you can speak some Chinese, perhaps you'll be able to enjoy the stay more. All in all, an okay experience, but I will never recommend this hotel to a friend or family member.
