                        The location of this hotel is near to center of culture (e.g. Forbidden city, Temple of Heaven) and shopping center.

                        Over all the hotel is good, the staff is very warm and very helpful also. It is very near to the forbidden city, tian an men square, wang fu jing, and train station. And we were very happy that we got the room in the early morning when we reached there in stead of waiting till 12noon. Very good.

                        But the restaurant is little un-tidy, due to the peak hour, the staff didn't clean the table on time and it is not convienence to the people of the next sitting.

                        Excellent location to visit Tianmen Square/ Fobidden City. We walked from Wonfujing Shopping district back to hotel after dinner around 9:00 pm, it only took us 10 minunites. Hotel is close to three major railrooad statations; I.E. Beijing Rail Station, West Rail Station & South Rail Station. Room & bathroom are spacious; beds are firm & comforatble. We used their luggage storage facility while visiting Tai Mountain for two days. We had pleasant stay & will recommend to friends.

                        We enjoyed our stay very much,room very clean,internet worked well,the breakfast buffett was excellent as was the evening buffett.Tianamen Square was a pleasant walk about 20 minutes and you could also walk to the Forbidden City but taxi,s are so cheap if you are not inclined.We ate once up top on the 20th floor Italian food expensive and not really very Italian.Nice view but do not recomend it.We stayed in the section called the Capital Club with lots extras included such as high tea and appetisers from 5-to 7 one beer or cocktail each included no 15% tax on anything purchased in the hotel ,restaurants,or bars.Also exclusive use for the swimming pool,saunas,excercise room bowling alley etc.Also you where allowed 2 drinks per day from the mina bar no charge.All these extras do add up and make the extra room charge more than worth it especially if you are staying more than 3 nights.We would definitely stay here again and hope to return to Beijing soon.

                        Exceptional value; great location in walking distance to Forbidden City and other sites.

                        Beds a little hard.

                        It was clean. Although the breakfast was not included in the price there was a decent buffet breakfast available. We like the variety of restaurant options. Housekeeping was very responsive to our requests.

                        There were too many extra charges for things not included in the price - internet, breakfast, an extra bed that cost more than half the daily room price. I'd rather have these things included for a bit higher room rate. We received a business card from a massage service that clearly was something else. We did not appreciate this. Beds were very hard and the water had a very foul smell. We were invited to join the elite club in order to get free WiFi. Seemed rather silly to us to go through this paperwork knowing we would not be frequenting the hotel in the future. We would recommend this hotel for couples, not families with children.

                        excellent winter rate. good value all around!

                        people still smoked in the non-smoking tower, including the elevator.

                        value for money.Cleanliness and comfortable,will stay again.

                        Beware taxi charges to Airport.

                        To be honest, it is a clean hotel.

                        Definitely, not a 5 star hotel (3.5?). Hard to understand the accent of the staff while speaking in english. 2 yuan per minute for the internet connection is extremely expensive. None of the services are free, for example you have to pay for the swimming pool. Tours organized by the hotel to the Great Wall are not worth it. Staff is not honest: they promised and repromised me that the weather forecast was going to be sunny (for the tour to the Great Wall), and it finally was extremely foggy and rainy, they simply wanted to sell another ticket and promised me everything I needed to hear.

                        This hotel was fantastic. Rooms large, clean, comfortable and quiet. Services and facilities were all to an extremely high standard, from the room to the restaurants, bars and public areas. Location is good, central to most of Beijing attractions, and only 5 minutes walk to the subway station. The hotel even placed a complimentary birthday cake for my wife in the room which was a very pleasant suprise. I would definitely stay at this hotel again and recommed to others.

                        Professional staff, facilities

                        I was OVER-charged by the hotel, compared to my Booked.net reservation. I was quoted $350 for my 5 night stay, where 15% service charge was "not included"; this should come out to ~ $402 total. However, when I checked out, my credit card was charged $434. Though this is not a big difference, I feel as if my Booked.net reservation quote meant nothing.

                        Nice and spacious room. The value for money is excellent as the hotel is quite luxurious with nice furniture in the room. The location of the hotel is also quite good. Initially I was confused about the location as I found this hotel in two different parts of the city. So to straighten this out. The hotel is located at the Qianmen East Street. Here some walking distances: Chongwenmen subway station is 10min, the Tian Men square 15min, the Forbidden City 20min, the popular Wangfujing Street 15min and the Temple of Heaven 30min.

                        It is rare to find people in China who speak good English. However, I was at least expecting that the English skills of the staff at the reception would be appropriate, but that was not the case.

                        The comfort in the rooms...also, the man who checked us in was excellent!

                        We decided to try the buffet...it was expensive - 195 yuian each - and it was terrible...old stale food...small selection...we were very disappointed. It ruined our impression of the hotel.
