changing rooms need updating
The negatives on my review are solely based on the pool facilities. I booked here as the last keg of our trip before flying home. Room and hotel lovely and clean, staff polite, we were the only ones for dinner in the restaurant but they served us fantastically and food was great. Going to the pool was weird though. There was an unmanned desk outside the pool so I collected a towel and went through. The locker room is absolutely filthy with very basic facilities and it smells. Think council facilities from the 1980s. I never saw so much dirt balanced on a doorway before. When I went into the pool there was a man sitting playing on his phone on one of the loungers (its a habit in China which is really annoying- you have to hear what’s on their phone as they don’t seem to wear earphones or consider others by turning the volume down) when another man arrived half hour later I realised (by the matching scruffy outfits that they were the pool attendants) It was rather bizarre and not in keeping with the experience I had from other areas of the hotel

Great hotel, customer service and location
Great hotel, great customer service and great location My only issue was that the room was like a sauna and the air con would not produce cold air, apparently because it was autumn but I dont understand that, it should either work or not
Clive, jp3 night family trip

Great location - but needs refreshing
The hotel is in a great location but could do with some renovations and refreshing. I called the operator several times and got no answer. Also my wife noticed a smell and what appeared to be smoke in the passageway - She reported it to the front desk - still not sure what the problem was. However the room was clean and tidy and breakfast good.

Hotel still conveys modern and old grandeur well
Great to be in a large heritage room of this historical hotel visited by heads of state in decades past. 10-year old child able to sleep well on sofa settee. Swimming pool was giant and beautiful and good for families. Terrific front desk service. Foot access to Wangfujing isnt as swift as it used to be, because street end of building leased to stores. Most of the good eating places are in the Wangfujing malls and beneath the bookstore. With building C of hotel closed, evening drink and dining options not as fabulous as before. Room faced inner court yard, which generated air conditioning system noise. Indetectable, though, if you use excellent air conditioning in room.

Spacious room with classical European style
Great stay if you love the classical European style.
