How to Get There
Again this hotel didn't let us down went with my wife and our 1 year old girl, this time there was no crib and for 2 days it really did have a BAD smell or all I can describe is wd40 or like show polish has to have the window open all night..
The breakfast was okay as well a little bit less choice than the last time.
Very good hotel but after this time we would stay somewhere else as it has dropped a little..
The privete great wall trip was still well worth the 800 yaun..
Rooms cleaned everyday to a very good standard
Stayed here twice with my wife, absolutely fantastic hotel. Great location in qianmen and very helpful staff. The comfiest hotel slippers I've had on my feet, very good shampoo (the wife was happy), very clean rooms and a FREE mini bar which gets topped up daily. Didn't go in the pool the more recent visit as the first visit it was freezing, but I guess that's just China, would be great to have had a dip after a very hot day at the great wall but we decided to callapse in the room with noodles and beer instead. Great touch showing the world cup at the rooftop bar on a big screen. Breakfast was delicious, I guess if you're not an expat living in china it would just be okay, but as an expat to get food and even more importantly good cheese, we were over the moon to have beans on toast with brie for breakfast. Personally won't be back just because we probably won't be coming to China again after spending 2 years here but definitely recommend it to anybody. If you're heading into beijing via train then definitely get the metro to the hotel, it's very cheap and there's a metro station a short walk from the hotel and is definitely the best way to get around bejing as flagging down taxis is near enough impossible as the only way to get a cab is to use the chinese taxi app (didi). Would also recommend going off the beaten track if you want to try beijing style duck, though the restaurants in the apm mall are all fantastic!
I started off my 14 days in china with a 5 day stay in Beijing at this hotel, We booked a double room with breakfast included. We didn't spend a huge amount of time in the hotel due to excursions most of the time, however it was fit for purpose.
It was a little long winded in terms of cash deposits and they are all dishonest when organising tours and taxis for you, they pretty much charge triple the going rate.
If you want a luxurious hotel, this probably isnt the one for you.
Also beware that whoever you travel with will be watching you shower & sh*t as theres nothing but a glass panel for a bathroom wall.
Location of the hotel is absolutely briliant and near the central tourist spots of beijing, Those that are saying it was a long journey from the forbidden city are lazy af!
It was a nice 10-15 min walk at most but there are plenty of sights and shops to see along the way so its not wasted.
Get yourselves used to the underground system and you'll save yourselves a ton of money too.
The hotel is quite interestingly decorated but they did not combine modern with practical.
Floor in the room was slippery to the point of really injuring yourself and the bed frame had such sharp edges that I had quite a few bruises by the time we left.
The shower was fitted into the ceiling without any cabin to divert the water and whenever we used it, water was everywhere (add that to the already slippery floors!); bathroom had no door either which was a bit frustrating.
Few things looked like they were fitted in a rush, and the furniture was definitely not in the best condition.
However, the room was clean, they offered us few cakes after we have arrived and the rooftop pool made a huge difference! Even if there were not enough sunbeds, we usually managed to enjoy few relaxing evenings. Staff was helpful, location is good and the area is next to very good restaurants.
Now this is my third stay at this hotel - let's talk about it.
1. The only reason you would want to stay here is a) if it's the middle of summer in Beijing. This is the only property I know of in the entire city which has a rooftop pool. The pool is excellent. b) If you really need to stay in this area and this property suits your budget.
2. The hotel has gone way down hill. The walls are white. Everything is white. Including the bathroom, which WAS white, but is now extremely damaged and water-stained. It is unsightly and not at all attractive. There are cracks in the walls where it is clear that the plaster is extremely water-damaged. The floor is extremely stained.
3. The Spa. This hotel is advertised as having a spa in the basement which based on photos, looks incredible. But in the three visits I've had here, each time, the staff simply say that the spa is closed for business.
4. There's a new gallery space, looks really interesting, but there's not much to it (see photo).
5. The rooms on the ground floor afford no view whatsoever - the windows open to a construction-site and can only be opened a few inches. The windows themselves are frosted.
6. The owner's son seems to be everywhere. Clearly newly-returned from having studied abroad, he was helping out in the rooftop bar, and then again standing around chatting with reception staff. I heard him tell numerous guests "I don't work here, I'm just helping out". If that's the case, get him in a uniform and teach him how to be professional.
I was really disappointed with how fast this hotel has gone downhill. It's average, that's all. And if it wasn't 39 degrees celsius outside on the day I checked-in, then I probably would have given 2 stars.
