This hotel is different...low-rise, large rooms, secure location. It is a great buy, with excellent help and comfortable rooms, although some of the lobby furniture is too massive and "old-fashioned Chinese" for my Western taste.
Breakfast was included with our room, and there was plenty of good food and excellent coffee.
Traffic in Beijing is a pain, so this location is great for downtown and the southeastern areas of the city. It is a quick taxi to Sanlitun, one of the fun areas where most visitors want to dine or shop.
One negative: our room was dusty and a bit grimy, but the maid was more than accommodating when we pointed out our needs.
Not sure why anyone would complain about languages spoken here. Maria in Guest Relations is superior---multilingual, professional and pleasant. They have staff who speak French, German, Spanish, as well as Putonghua and English.
They've got plenty of international staff who are more than willing to meet the needs of foreign travelers.
