Beijing's Terrible Hotel

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 28, 2007

We stayed there for 4 nights, April 2007. First, the Airconditioning inside the room is nothing less than natural air, when we requested for service, the engineers told us thats already the coolest, I checked it in my watch which registered 31 degrees centigrate, they also advised us to just open the window to make it cooler. The room's window size can just fit a human's head out. When I went to the manager's office, he told me the hotel actually has no airconditioning inside the rooms because the vents actually is "natural air". They will just politelly tell you: "SORRY SIR". Bathroom, bathtub full of stains, basin also full of stains. The reason is simple, the waters coming out from the faucets are "BROWN STAINED WATERS" (Please see attached picture for information. Service? Are there any? I didn't recall any good service. Living in any 2 star hotels might be better. Outside, the Taxi Cabs are colored in Black( black taxi's meter jumps very fast compared to others). Thats the only kind of taxi you can find outside the hotel. Too Bad. Stay away from this hotel, you will thank me for that.

Unique Quality: This hotel should be included in the reality shows such as FEAR FACTOR.

The concierge and the front desk people were really friendly. They had this "We Do Care" program that focused on service. The lobby was gorgeous! It was minimalist and beautiful! The room, although spic & span and comfortable, was pretty plain and honestly a bit of a disappointment compared to the awe-inspiring lobby. And there was construction behind it, so there was a bit of noise, but I was hardly bothered by it, plus there seems to be construction EVERYWHERE in Beijing! Over-all, I sincerely enjoyed my stay there, and I wouls recommend it to anyone who does not want to spend a fortune on hotels!

Unique Quality: The location is great! It's close to the XiDan commercial area, so if you've got nothing to do, you can just take a 10 minute walk and there you go! Food and shopping galore! The facilities are pretty good too! There's a gym and everything.

Directions: Near XiDan district

Very cosy hotel close to the forbidden city

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

This is a very nice hotel centrally located in Beijing.
We really enjoyed our stay here, some good restaurants and nice rooms. Most of the staff speak english, but not all of them do. But all of them are more than willing to help, even if they can`t speak the language!

We had some problems with our neighbours. Sounded like they had an orgy every night. I think the guy living there called for escort girls every night. Kind of disturbing....

Unique Quality: Nice and centrally located hotel. Nice restaurant, and the staff is ready to help.

Directions: Just three blocks away from Beijing Tiananmen Square and the forbidden city
