This is well-located in one of the most popular and lively districts with plenty of shops and fairly close access to the metro. The staff is personable and our corner room on the 7th floor had a big window looking on to all the activity below. (Note: not all rooms have great views, so if it is important to you, check ahead. The bed was huge. The rooms are somewhat sparsely furnished with an urban/industrial chic, but quite comfortable and clean.
A great Breakfast with some variations on each of our three days that had something for everyone, whether you are looking for something traditionally Chinese, Japanese (sometimes Korean) or a western breakfast. Fresh fruit options are always available, as well as ample salad items and breads and cereals.
We took advantage of the nearby bike-share stations one block away and tooled around the city very early in the morning before the heat and the ferocious traffic make it uncomfortable and unsafe for biking (at least in the summer.)
