This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel, which my employer puts me in. The reception hasn't changed at all; they still really need to improve their language ability to be an international hotel. They are perfunctory but not warm or service oriented. The bell boy, however, were very effective and always tried to help, even if the language issue was a problem.
The room was big but the wear and tear is beginning to show. Breakfast was fun in the sense that the cook, a woman, recognize me every day (I was there for a week). She smiled, tried to communicate and cook me two eggs over easy every morning. Really nice service. However the food can run out quickly, so get there early.
The hotel is very well situated. Across the street is a modern mall and a hip neighborhood with lots of bars and restaurants. Again the bell boys are very efficient and can hail a taxi in seconds. I also take the metro a lot in Beijing, and a station is within second from the entrance.
The WIFI is slow, and like most of China, not good and monitored. Too bad. Much be frustrating for the Chinese as well.More
