    If I had known......

    by

    This hotel was included in my tour package but I don't know their fares. I admit that the staff were friendly but this hotel wasn't what I expected. I don't know it it was my imagination but it smelled like garlic. It took me a while to get used to the smell each time I entered the hotel.

    They also charge everything... even the water and a little bag of green tea I drank (which is supposed to be free or at least, included in the room fare). Personally I didn't have a pleasant stay, at least that was my experience, maybe somebody had a nice staying there.

    A Four Star Hotel? To put it in perspective, the Chinese tourism board rates it public toilets, and four star WC's still has squat toilets, and often lack T.P. So in comparison, this is the Ritz. But it is not a four star hotel by any strech- more like two.

    Bummers:
    The staff speaks NO english, except for ONE person, who works the night shift.
    Questionable cleanliness, maids use dirty rags and some rooms have bugs
    No pool, or gym, despite what the website says. (Just a sign for a pool that was painted over)
    Much of the hotel (and city of Beijing) is "Under construction for 'Olymplic Purposes' "
    Limited Internet
    Use caution when booking tours in the downstairs office, make sure you get a round trip shuttle
    Only one or two english tv stations

    Bonus:
    EXCELLENT location- closest hotel to the sights.
    Great breakfast
    Limited internet, which can be a good thing
    Very quiet
    Mini fridge and tea maker in room
    Only one or two english tv stations

    Unique Quality: "Bran Band Internet"
    Spa that offers a "little extra, for a little extra"
    Free Charades game at the front desk
    Excellent location, 5 min walk to Tiananmen square
    Great breakfast
    Free communist propaganda news daily (almost) every morning

    Directions: Tiananmen Square

The Underground...

The Underground Passages

There are entry points all over Bei Jing, it's best to ask a tour guide or travel agency, or if possible the locals. The entry to the Underground Passage that I used was near the Bei Jing Dong Jiao Min Xiang hotel.

These passages have been built under the city of Bei Jing and lead to places all over the city. Built a minimum of 8m under the city and up to 16m under ground, the passages were built to shelter the people from nuclear attack. They are large enough to store three months worth of food for the city and you'll also find some shops underground. (We visited a silk shop and marvelled at the silk quilts being made.)

This is a part of the city which many people, locals included don't know about. The incredible network has signs pointing to Tianamen Square, the Forbidden City and many other famous places. You will need to pay a small entry fee, but it's well worth the trip.
