A very old Days Inn NOT near the airport
Posted Dec 9, 2016 on Orbitz
We were told the free shuttle (yay) were going to pick us up within 15 minutes. We ended up waiting in the very cold, very polluted Beijing airport for over 50 minutes because the front desk lady at the hotel didn't speak English very well, and didn't describe the meeting point clearly. The hotel is located near the center of Beijing, clearly should be renamed. The staff were not friendly, I'm not sure if that's just how they do things. We only had 19 hours layover in Beijing, and I was really hoping to see the Forbidden city at night, but because of the shuttle delay, we had to cancel that out. We ordered room service at night, because there were no restaurants nearby. We ordered the burger with no bacon, it came with bacon. When we told the room service that delivered the food up to our room, he was just going to take off the bacon with his hand right in front of us. Yuck. The room got stuffy around 11 pm (night), so we turned on the AC, lo and behold, they sent a staff banging on our door like we did something wrong. It is basically a very old, very run down Days Inn. Definitely not going back.
