Star rating:
3 star hotel

3.9

Mid-range comfort in the heart of the action.

If you’re seeking clean, good value digs in a prime location (and who isn’t?), this hotel probably won’t disappoint. Despite being government-run, I found it bright, clean and welcoming, with good English spoken throughout. And most importantly, the major sights of central Beijing are a stroll away.

Location

Very central – to the west you’ve got the Forbidden City, to the east Wangfujing and the Night Market.

Bedrooms

Unremarkable, but clean as a whistle and full of gadgets, like a widescreen TV with wireless keyboard and mouse. I found the moss-green colour scheme rather drab, but no complaints about the bathroom – mine came with a nice big tub, robes, a wide selection of toiletries and even a hairdryer. Don’t be surprised if you can detect a lingering aroma of cigarette smoke - even the non-smoking rooms suffer from it.

Public areas

Spotless marble floors; walls adorned with giant murals of Beijing’s tourist attractions.

Eating and drinking

An open-plan restaurant beside the lobby serves a daily breakfast buffet and nightly Western buffet both at reasonable prices for the location and quality.

Leisure facilities

Fitness studio, tour-booking. No pool.

Service

Bright, upbeat staff with middling to good English.
