Dirty Hotel

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 8, 2008

The staff were very friendly and the restaurant was very good, but the bedrooms needed cleaned and redecorating. The bathroom was filthy, grouting round the bath and shower was black, the washhand basin was never cleaned round the taps was thick with dirt. The floor needed a good scrub, we were there for 3 days after a cruise and I would say I have never stayed in a dirtier hotel. We did report it and offered to pay for an upgrade just to get a clean room but we were told the hotel was full.

Unique Quality: With only having 3 days in Beijing we spent the time sightseeing which we thoroughly enjoyed we would have liked to have had a few more days. I cannot comment on the pool as we did not use it and we certainly did not have any great views from our room.

I stayed here for a month during a school trip to China. Good service and an amazing breakfeast buffet! Not too far from Tien An Men, just a couple of stops with the subway. The station was right across the street. The Friendship Store was a couple of blocks away, and a lot of nice restaurants in the neighboorhood :)

The bedlinen was kind of itchy though, but the room was spacious with a great view down to the Jianguomen.

Unique Quality: The hotel has a spa/hair salon, pool, several restaurants, giftshop and laundry service.

Directions: Jian guo men- area

American bucks get you a four star hotel at discount prices. No joke. I think I spent about $60 a night and got a king size bed, a great view, a nice area with a couch and a couple of chairs.

The rooms are very nice. The webpage has a good look at one. They are very spacious and comfortable. The A/C was good. It kept me cool even though it was a very hot day. Plus, they gave me complementary breakfast and bottles of water. There is a KFC and a McDonalds across the street, but this is China, so eat at one of the local joints around the corner. Or, the Hard Rock cafe is a ten minute ride by taxi.

This is my favorite hotel in China. The service was way above what I got in Hong Kong or Shanghai. Cheaper too!

Unique Quality: The Sports City Cafe is a sports bar to the extreme. The tour guide I befriended lost to me at a game of basketball on the court in the middle of the bar. It is totally geared towards the West, but locals come there too.

In addition to that, there is a formal dining area, and breakfast is served on each floor.

There is a gym, a pool, Sauna, Beauty Salon, Massage Centre and separate lounges equipped with televisions for ladies and gentlemen. Travel and business facilities are also there. They can arrange airport transfer, tours of the city (and great wall) and even hook you up with plane tickets.

There is a subway stop across the street, and a direct route west will lead you to the Palace Museum and Tienanmen Square. Great location!

Directions: East but Central Beijing. In fact, take Changman road from Tienanmen Square and you can't miss it. See web page for the map.
