How to Get There
Stayed 4 nights in this hotel. Located between two prominent Subway station, Xidan and Xuanamen, this hotel is very good for business Traveller.
Tianenmen square and Wangfuging are also close by.
Swift check in, English speaking front desk and a beautiful lobby lounge are some of the impressive aspects of this hotel.
Got a room on the 10 the floor. The access lobby and Room doors from outside are strangely not maintained enough. Most room doors look quite run down from out side.
But as u enter inside, the room is very spacious, well appointed. Bathroom is also spacious with good amenities.
Breakfast is served on their 2nd floor restaurant. A very good breakfast with great varieties- of Chinese, Oriental and Western dishes.
Room WiFi is not very good. The network strength was often poor. Make sure u ask the front desk to give a room with good WiFi access!
Another issue with this hotel that they shut down or lower down their central cooling equipments during early morning hours, leading to some serious ventilation and circulation issue in the guest rooms during early morning hours. Experienced this strange practice during all mornings for couple of hours. The hotel must do something about it.
Otherwise, a great place to stay in Beijing.
Excellent frontdesk Service which organized our Trip to the greatwall. Very friendly Personal at breakfast. Ideal ans Central Location for visiting the City. Breakfast Food is more asiatic than Continental
This is my second stay at the Grand Mercure. I have stayed here for business purposes, because it's very closely located to many of the Chinese bank headquarters and shopping area. Also within walking distance of some key tourist attractions such as Tiananmen Square etc, and within a short walk of Xicheng subway station.
The hotel seems to be very popular with local groups and tourists. The hotel doesn't seem to enforce a strict 'non-smoking' policy, and unfortunately cigarette smoke can be detected when walking down the hotel corridors.
The front desk staff are helpful, and the club lounge staff are also friendly. However, generally speaking, the staff's proficiency in English is very low and it can be quite frustrating trying to explain requirements and generally be understood. Even room numbers are a problem for the staff who are not working at the front desk.
The rooms themselves are quite spacious. However they are very old and dated and in desperate need of refurbishment. The bathrooms are small but have the essentials.
As a Platinum member of Accor, I was expecting a coffee machine to be made available in my room, but unfortunately the hotel didn't have one (or they didn't understand my request!). However, they did arrange for a coffee to be delivered to my room on request each morning, which was a very nice gesture.
A great location, good spacious rooms, pleasant staff. Would base myself here again if travelling back. Only downside is bar closed a bit early but there are plenty of places to eat and drink close by.
The location is pretty good, although there are hotels closer to the sights. We checked in and went straight out for the day, we had booked an executive king suite, it was not until heading to bed exhausted after a long day we discovered that the room we had been given did not have a king bed, it was queen size. Showering the next morning the shower head would not stay upright and the rain shower switch did not work at all! We complained to the manager and to their credit they immediately arranged another room for us. The staff were friendly, but English is extremely limited for a major capital city. The executive lounge has a very dissapointing selection of food at cocktail hour, a selection of cheese and mixed nuts would have been preferred over the popcorn chicken, onion rings and tasteless spring rolls.... the breakfast was better with the option to have eggs cooked freshly to order, unfortunately the bread, croissant and danish were stale...
