Very good 8.2 From 540 reviews

Good 6.0
Not the best in the area, but okay
The hotel is brilliantly located for Tian'anmen Square and the Forbidden City (and all other tourist sights around there). There is a great selection of restaurants nearby and it is only a 5-10 minute walk to Wangfujing Street (for shopping). The rooms were spacious and relatively clean, some mystery marks left on the mirror from previous guests however. The bathroom was well appointed, although be aware that there is no door to the bathroom, just a curtain. The window in the bedroom didn't close properly either without someone holding it shut, which made the room quite noisy as it looked out on to the main road. We've stayed in this area before and certainly had better value for our money although I wouldn't write off staying here again if necessary.

Average hotel & rude cleaning lady
I booked this hotel based on reviews. The reviews were over-rated. The location is great, only 10 minutes walk from the Forbidden City. The service is average or below par. The cleaning lady was very rude, she was screaming at my wife for using more than one toilet sheet. The breakfast is supposed to run from 6:30 to 10am but they stop refilling after 9am. Very disappointing for their nickel and dime service. We may not return again.

Nice hotel, can’t beat the location
A nice hotel in a spectacular location. Good service, would definitely recommend.

Fair 4.0
Could be a good hotel
Pros: Good location. Trendy design reminiscent of an Italian hotel. Cons: Hotel and room stink. Smell of mold and cigarette. Dusty to a point allergy was triggered. Room door malfunctions. Twice locked out over 4 days duration. 1 English speaking staff out of 10 during our stay. Could easily be 4 stars with better management and a modest renovation budget.

For price point, this hotel falls short
We stayed here because of overall positive reviews from members. I'd say that these reviews overstated the condition of this hotel. It felt like this was once an excellent and fashionable hotel, and now it feels like it is aging and getting a bit tired. The bathroom needed a deep clean, which was not a good feeling. The air conditioning was metered to only be at 24 C at the coolest. Also, we were not provided with the room type we booked in terms of size (which was evident from the floor plan), and the pictures online differed from the room itself. Service from staff was excellent, and this hotel is a short walk from a major metro stop and shopping area. Also, the fridge was stocked with a few cold beers and sodas, which was nice. And the free waters each day were very large.
