good place to be for a week in Beijing.
Posted Oct 14, 2013
We were there for a week while on a tour of China. The hotel was nice and clean, and the lobby was impressive. The room was spacious and clean. There was free wifi in the lobby that was pretty good, but sometimes you had to walk around to get a good signal. People at the desk were helpful and spoke fair English. We had no problem communicating our needs, and they always called a taxi for us without any delay. The room was dimly lit, it would have been nice if the bedside lamps were bright enough to read by. There were nicks in the wood in the vanity and doors, and the grout in the tiles in the bathroom, both on the floor, and in the shower were discolored. They weren't dirty, but could have used a re-do. Shower curtain was very clean. The bedding was nice and liked the duvets on top of the beds. The beds were very hard though. The grout around the tile in the bathroom vanity was smeared with what looked like black ink or something (the vanity was black, so it probably was a repair), but it was clean. Clean was what was important to me, and it was clean, but they didn't do much to repair the small things that make you feel like you were in a 4 star hotel. There was no smell of smoke, which I appreciated.
