Not big, but clean and nice rooms, all basic equipment in place (Sat TV, A/C, hair dryer, free Internet connection in the room + Internet cafe on 2nd floor, etc.). Definiteley worth the money spent. Neighbourhood of hotel is not nice (poor district), but very easy to catch the taxi (waiting time 1-2 minutes). And 1 really fantastic thing: Beijing guide they give to guest. Something like 20 most important attractions in Beijing shown clearly on the map, with brief descriptions, opening time and address in Chinese (you can show to taxi driver - and he will bring you there) + subway map. Small and efficient - helped me a lot to see many things quickly in Beijing.
Hard to find something negative - of course it's not 5-star hotel - but taking into account money spent it was really good. The only 2 a bit negative things are: (1) breakfast could be more european (majority of visitors were Westeners), (2) external appearance could be better
Breakfast and internetsupplies in hotel
Long distance to metrostation
Not too far from things we were interested in. Comfy beds.
Shower gel wasn't replaced
Air conditioning have no cooling option at rooms.
Good priced tourist hotel, value for money,
Receptionists need to be much more responsive, friendly and helpful. I have seen better. Not a single service staff around the cafe greeted the guests.
Quite near to Temple of Heaven, 15m by walking. The hotel is not near to the subway station, taking bus is not easy, taxi is the only way. Clean room, we had internet problem, but was fixed soon. The breakfast should be managed better by hotel staff.
Taxi driver couldn't find the hotel easily.
