The best thing about this hotel is the location, it's very convenient as a base to see Beijing major tourist sites. The rooms were very nice and clean, up to my standards which are higher. Our room was fairly large with a king size bed and living area with a couch. The bathroom was spotless. I felt very comfortable here. As for location, it is good. It was relatively close to the Forbidden City and other sites. The hotel is connected to a shopping center with plenty of restaurants close by. There is a supermarket in the basement of the shopping center where you can buy food, water, etc. The front desk staff was nice overall, concierge desk was efficient about writing down Chinese translations, for destinations, on a card for the taxi excursions we took. Overall, we really enjoyed the experience and will be going back.
