Grand Concordia equal to Western 5 star hotels
Posted Jun 13, 2012 on Hotels
Grand Concordia is located in Chaoyang area, NW of Beijing. It is located easily in walking distance to many embassies and the famous Beijing Lady Street for shopping. Also, the Airport Express train stops at Sanyuanqiao and you can walk to the hotel. Taxi drivers many not know the hotel so you can tell them either Eagle Run Plaza or across the street from the Marriott. Hotel itself is very good. Rooms are clean and spacious. Internet is free, both wifi and wired. TVs only show Chinese stations, but I wasn't there to watch tv. Shower is spacious and there is also a separate bath tub. All amenties are provided, toothbrush, shampoo, body wash etc. Breakfast is decent. Chefs will make you eggs any style you want, and there are plenty of choices, but it is not an extravagant nor lavish buffet. Front Desk staff speak limited English but enough to get most things done. You can pay 2-3 times more staying at the Renaissance nearby but you certainly will not get 2-3 times more hotel. This is certainly a hidden gem in Beijing and I suspect more people will stay here as it is perfect for business travelers. There is one room rate that is offered but does not have any windows, I would advise upgrading to the Deluxe room, which also includes breakfast.
