The hotel that changed the rates!
The Golden Dragon Hotel is towards the southern end of Beijing Lu, so convenient for the railway and the airport. It is a standard high-rise 4-star hotel, bland and unexciting.
The pool is closed (at least in winter) and looks an unappealing place surrounded by concrete and overlooked by warehouses and factories.
The 24-hour coffee-shop isn't. Poor marketing and customer understanding means that the gargantuan bars and restaurants are always empty. They are grim, uninspiring places.
The most significant aspect of this hotel was that we had agreed a rate of US$40 over the phone but when we checked out, this increased to US$48. In the end they lost out, as we stayed at the Kunming Hotel (around same price) for 6 nights a month later (2 rooms)....so their one-time small gain lost them a lot of money. Not that any of the staff will be remotely bothered by this, because that's the mentality in many of these bigger hotels.
Unique Quality: Nothing unique, other than the sour taste.
