Το ξενοδοχειο βρισκεται πολυ κοντα στην πλατεια Tienanmen και αυτο ειναι το μονο πλεονεκτημα του. Κατα τα αλλα τα δωματια δεν εχουν καλη ηχομονωση με αποτελεσμα να ακους τα διπλανα δωματια. Μετρια καθαριοτητα και αρκετη ηχορυπανση λογω του δρομου.
In its heyday this was probably a very nice hotel but as in many Chinese local hotels the maintenance has fallen by the wayside and its just not glorious anymore. However, the location is great and its was, given the price, comfortable enough. The hotel is located on a nice tree lined street that has a park like median up the center and has a residential feel to it. However, the neighborhood is right smack in the middle of the Beijing government complex and is surrounded by state houses many of which have ample guards at the street. It is a short walk and convenient walk to Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. The subway is a short walk further down the street from there. The hotel staff was courteous although not particularly friendly. In the lobby opposite the lobby is an odd assortment of vendors selling all manner of snacks and souvenirs. Tours were also available in the lobby for those wanting to visit the Great Wall and other points of interest. The rooms typical of Chinese hotel rooms, small by Western standards, but good enough for a few days stay. The beds, were typically Chinese hard with minimal linens. The pillows were particularly thin and I needed two to get comfortable. Bathroom linens were the typical bath towel only for each guest and the usual comb and toothbrush but no soap or shampoo. The room was acceptably clean with the glaring deficiency being the condition of the carpet. In many Chinese hotels the carpets are grungy but the carpet in our room surpassed grunge and fell into the filthy category. Fortunately the requisite disposable slippers were provided. The price was ok but one of the highest we paid in China at $38 per night. With a little more time to shop around we might have done a little better.…
