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.

Average hotel but in a good location
rooms, location, food
Average hotel probably wouldn't stay there again, but the location is good. the rooms are average and the price is ok. I would say apart from location you could easily find a better cheaper hotel for visiting the sights in Beijing.

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 .
