The YuYang hotel is located near SanLiTun and the embassy districs, just minutes away from the 3rd ring rd in Chaoyang District Beijing. It's an upper class hotel for chinese standards (5 star hotel in china are in no way comparable to the standard of a shangri-la or westin there). The hotel hosts mainly chinese travellers and accordingly people will be smoking throughout the whole hotel and in elevators. To counter the odour staff sprays scents in all public areas which again can be very annoying.
My room was small but had a desk to work on inside and free internet with cable. The bathroom was also good and had enough space.
Two things I didn't like where that bed covers where synthetic which I don't like at (i simply removed them and only used the bed linens. And second was that my room was located near an exit or storage room of somekind and staff kept on smashing the door until late. After I complained my room was changed and this problem was solved.
I didn't have a chance to see the swimming pool as it was already closed when i tried to go there the first time - however, the need to go down for 2 storeys in to a dodgey area (my feeling) of the hotel was enough to not make me come back.
The breakfast is good, with western food, chinese food, some japanese and some fruits.
Staff is very friendly but sometimes it is hard to communicate with them as most speak very little english.
Location is fantastic, right behind the hotel are many great restaurants (just don't be afraid to go intho the back alleys and try out something). Staff will not speak a single word of English but the menus has pictures and often also a somewhat acurate translation of the dish. Also a big plus is that the hotel is just a few minutes to SanLiTun, the main nightlife area of Beijing and once you've figured out how to rponounce it's name most taxi drivers know the hotel.
