We found ourselves here by chance. The originally booker Dragon Alley could not provide us originally booked rooms and re-located us here. The place is not clean and poorely taken care of. We here more than it was claimed at booking site. Staff was aguring that that were rooms of different type. With almost zero outside, there is no any chance to heat up the room. Water is flooding from the bath. Dirty torn curtains, never vacuumed carpet. Pretty far from metro. Having given few claims to the staff they have shown all their indifference to us, advised us to stop aguring and get off the hotel. Some pictures are attached.

+ Location, Friendly Staff (smiling smiling smiling)

- 1 fixed prepared Breakfast dish ( Info of staff therefor was missing / not mentioned on the menu! ...if you order other breakfast you need to pay additional!

- hard to communicate - in general the Staff is not able to speak English well! ( just on person at the reception speaks English "better"!...so if this guy was available you were lucky! - so based on the existing reviews we were expecting a better English!)

...Room Pictures of the Websides mostly not matching reality! (outdated hotel / Hotel Rooms - renovation needed!)
...the Happy Dragon.R J Brown Hotel Beijing is definitely more an Hostel (for people from 16 - 25 yrs.)!
...from a Hotel I expect more experience of the Staff (Language, Manners, Service, ..)...just smiling is not enough!
...more comfort from a Hotel rated with 3 Stars (...if this 3 Stars are really ok related to booking.com ?)
… the Bed mattresses are very hard (ok, Chinese Style - yes I know!) so if you need it soft, take a Air-mattress with you.

the Happy Dragon.R J Brown Hotel / Hostel Beijing is good for a 1, max 2 Nights Stay in my point of View & recommended to younger people! Price is ok!

Overall an awesome stay at the hotel. We were served by a great team of staff who always ready to serve us and try to give us good recommendations to move around the city. Rooms and toilets are clean. We were especially happy with the clean sheets! Location of the property is near to many prime tourist area such as Tiannanmen and Forbidden city.there are lots of local food shops and restaurants nearby. Would recommend you to stay here. 😉

Sorry for the late reply and you have probably already worked it out. We would normally book transport with the hotel, for Bejing we didn't and expected it to be like other places in China we had visited ... it wasn't... More
