This hotel has a great location being within walking distance of the Forbidden city and also close access to the metro. The taxi driver couldn't find this hotel and took us initially to the Novatel Peace Hotel. Once we arrived at the hotel shown on the picture we entered and were told that the hotel was down the alleyway at the side. Pulling the bags down a dark laneway where your not sure where you are going is a bt daunting.
We had booked this direct or at lest we thought we had but the girl on the desk just laughed in a condensending manner and said the booking was worthless as it was nothing to do with them. I still got a room ( I had booked a great wall tour to meet me at the hotel) but the price was higher than the other quote and when I tried to use my mastercard she said no Cash Only. Then she said do you want a receipt which we said yes only to be told she can't give me one. why I don't know.
the triple room was a little small but okay for what we wanted and served us a abase to get around beijing from.
I doubt I would stay here again as although the location is good the hotel itself is a little run down and the service is poor.More
