One night stay
I had to wait 30 minutes to check in and then the hotel had not received my agoda booking. Normally when this happens hotels are very helpful, but here the staff were confrontational and left me waiting for another 30 minutes while they contacted agoda. When I finally got a room it was a twin instead of a king sized bed as I'd booked, and the air conditioning was not working. After traveling all day I found the staff at night a little rude. In fairness, when checking out the staff were very helpful and kind, but my experience was disappointing overall

Good experience, friendly staff. Would definitely stay again.
Booked a deluxe room through Agoda, but when I arrived they didn't have my reservation or any single bed deluxe rooms available. I showed them my reservation confirmation, and they accepted the rate on the confirmation and upgraded me to a top level suite. Upon check out, they had already resolved the reservation issue with Agoda and was all good. Good location near Sanlitun. Friendly staff.

Maybe 5 Star in 1980!
Basically nothing worked, no aircon as it was "Winter" in April with 25 C outside. room faced west it was a greenhouse and stuffy as no air flow. Carpet was extremely dirty with hair and dust. Sauna and Turkish bath out of order, list goes on. Great location though

Rude Staff
Well located hotel, the interior of which needs repair/improvement (end of maintenance cycle?). Surly reception desk/cashier staff, badly trained restaurant staff (one has to ask for tea/coffee at breakfast; no possibility of a cup of tea before start of breakfast at 06:30). Plenty of alternatives within a 1 mile radius.

Disappointed Business Traveler
Location, Location, ease of checkin/checkout
Cold, cold and more cold. Room had little to zero heat, dining area cold to point of almost having to wear gloves during breakfast while rest of hotel area not much better. Once one of these nicest in embassy district now becoming rundown badly in need of facelift along with better management.
