Clean hotel in an older part of Beijing. Breakfast was good. Lots of western and chinese choices. We had a room for 3 at the front of the hotel and this was clean and functional and everything worked. We had asked for a non smoking room (as rare as hen's teeth in China) and it lived up to our request (well it didn't smell smoky anyway!!) There were a couple of little shops across the road to the left for water and snacks( check the sell by dates) and do try the little terracotta pots of honey yoghurt...delicious.
We walked from this hotel to the main sights in Beijing but had to have taxis to the main shopping street and the night markets. Authentic chinese restaurants all around the hotel and we took advice from our guide on where to eat.
The hotel has a restaurant and coffee shop which were fine. Some western food served for the children on the trip. There was a cash machine in the hotel and a money changing service at the reception. All chinese hotel have hard beds but we loved them.

Room Tip: I don't know what the prices of the rooms were as it was part of a tour

I was traveling with a group in early September and this was our first hotel. The problem was that I had arrived in Beijing 4 days earlier and had stayed in a nice 4 star hotel right next to a metro stop. I was Ok with the room at the Dong Fang--we were in the older 2 story wing that was done in 30's mode--actually looked nice. The room had wired internet and everything worked. We stayed here for 3 nights and I think everyone was with a tour group. Breakfast was on the 2nd floor of the new wing and it was much easier to take the stairs then wait for an elevator. The food was good but the room was always crowded and the ealier you arrived the better. There was an ATM in the lobby--one of the few not in a bank or airport that I saw on the 2 week trip.
The biggest issue that I had with the hotel was its location. It was a long walk to the nearest metro -next to Tianamen square. The area is full of small shops but no real shopping. I walked all around and couldn't find anything worth going back for. At one time the hotel was probably in a good area but now just out of the way. A few of us took cabs from the hotel but had problem getting them to take Westerners. I did not experience anything similar and I took cabs in several cities. Cabs are very cheap and a good way to go especially at night. We always had the hotel card with the name in Chinese to show the driver.

Room Tip: Top floor in the old wing--lots of walking. No idea about the 12 story or more new wing

We stayed here twice as part of a tour trip first and last nights of our trip. First night welcome from bell boys/ doormen wonderful very helpful. Room not brilliant very disappointed taking into consideration this was meant to be the luxury!! We was on level 7. Breakfast was ok lots of choice. One of lifts not working and had not been for few days.

Returned to stay after our exploring tour - level 9 much better room than before.

Whole hotel general clean, although first night found room to be dirty.

Hotel was OK, room was clean and view was good, would not recommend this location, if I go back to Beijing I would look for a hotel closer to times square or at the very least a subway line, however Taxis are very very cheap, if you can find one that will take you, they didn't seem to like taking Europeans, for every 10 taxis 7 would say no.
I was very disappointed in the level of customer service, this was mainly due to a communication break down, the front desk, cafe, room service staff etc all had very poor english, and to make it worse they really no made attempt to even be helpful or try and work out what you require, however I was in China so therefore maybe should have got a translation book/app and tried to learn some basic Chinese. All in all it was OK, the room service staff would come into our room when we had our do not disturb sign on the door, we would come back and find they had been in or cleaned the room, didn't like this much.

Our tour group of 35 from Cincinnati stayed here two nights. Our room was spartan and the beds (as per Chinese custom) were very hard. Massage ladies hang out in the lobby offering their services. There is an ATM machine off the lobby. No internet connections so folks had to walk a few blocks to another hotel to use their wifi. We found the breakfast buffet to be quite good and plentiful. We got a laugh at the complimentary condoms in the bathroom. China takes their "one child" policy seriously! A walk around the neighborhood at night seemed a little sketchy to us- not necessarily unsafe, just gritty. Do explore the hotel, as they have a lovely courtyard and some rooms overlook this. All in all, you don't spend much time in the room anyway. It was sufficient.
