    Very good

    Having a travel agent in site and the hire of bicycles from the door. It was centrally located and well priced.

    The Internet was dire and the room booked was unavailable on arrival and not offered until the point of leaving. Double rooms having the shower too close to the toilet was not acceptable.

    Low price, good location, English-speaking staff at the reception, guests mostly from Europe, you can order European food, good but expensive coffee (about 25 s) which is a rarity in Beijing

    It was dirty, but I think that the Chinese standard of cleanliness is very low (I have stayed in two other hotels and it was similar dirty, I.ee hair on the floor, and so on), the cockroaches in hotel restaurant and in the rooms; weak Internet connection. Internet works well only in the Lobby.

    I really liked the localization of the hotel - next to Forbidden City of Beijing, next to busses and subway. Tourist information was also very helpful :-) and the cafe downstairs is the best place to have a breakfast with a good coffee.

    The hotel assigned a different room than the one I booked from Booked.net. No Wifi and cell signal in the room. Wifi is only available at the cafe. The hotel is just a kind of motel.

    Good

    The stuff was verry friendly. The location was excelent.

    The rooms were small a little dirty. We had room on the first floor and it was verry loud. The slippers for the Bathroom was used more then once. The towels and the linen were clean but verry old! Outside the window was a wall.

    Good

    The location fairly close to forbidden city, some staff memebers speak english and are very helpfull. There's a night food market nearby where they cook tarantulas (but they charge different prices for foreigners).

    The bathroom door was transparent, altough at a different angle than the bed. There was a bad smell in the room,and there was some cooking smell if we opened the window. It was cold and the room wasn't vacuum cleaned.

    We stayed there on a stopover between flights and found it very comfortable and warm. We used the cafe and had a great breakfast.Very close to the Forbidden city and the shops and the food market.Would use it again.
