Too modern design, but excellent location
Proximity to the Forbidden City, nearby restaurants, helpful staff
very good, but the hypermodern design didn't always work. Our bed was in a corner so only accessible from the foot, the bathroom counter sloped down toward the shower.

Feeling like an emperor
Service, cleanliness , price
Meeting all expectations, wonderful rooftop, very clean rooms, minibar refilled every day, cookies at 6.30 pm. Staff speaks impeccable English and is there to assist for any request. Bit far from subway but hotel will call a taxi when needed. Very nice rooftop restaurant and at a 5 minutes walk the famous SIJIMINFU restaurant , if you call before there is o waiting time. Walking distance is Jinshan Parc for a marvelous view over the forbidden city. I give it a 10 .

Clean hotel, attentive staff
Clean, attentive staff, next to shopping area
We enjoyed our stay but wouldn't stay there again. The room was clean and the staff attentive but the food (room service) was beyond terrible, the fridge in the room wasn't working (we had to tore good away) and the staff admitted that it was the same in all the rooms.

Excellent place:location, comfortability and staff
First, the staff was extremely helpful and orientative. Second, the rooms were original and very clean and comfortable. Third, breakfast was included and the location was excellent!
Our stay was great in every aspect: the location is great: 10 minutes to forbidden city and Beihai park, 15 minutes to a metro station. Very nice surroundings in a beautiful hutong. The staff was extremely helpful, arranging money exchange, a trip to the great wall and train tickets purchase. Breakfast was included and very tasty, with both occidental and chinese options. The negative point: they charged us for printing a couple of sheets the last day. Anyway I would definitely reccomend it.
