Rooms are adequate but a bit grubby and worn. Staff are very pleasant and friendly, try to be helpful; many speak very limited English. My experience with lunch in the Essence Restaurant was: can be[More] good (scallops) but can be poor (burger did not match order, very under cooked inside). Understanding manager explained trainees were the problem; if they were trainees, it sounds like supervision failed.
Fine for a business stay, rooms really need a major cleaning.[Less]
This is wonderful location to the shopping area, theatre and business centre. I especially love the local Chinese breakfast next to the hotel which was also a popular brand to the President of China.[More] As an art lover, the most famous theatre is right next to the hotel. Forbidden city is also accessible. So I'd recommend this hotel.[Less]
good location and front desk staff
generally good location and a value for money hotel. but room was small and carpet not very clean. the staff on the ground floor bar doesnt like to smile but the front desk staff are very nice and[More] professional. provided all necessary information and made my stay a very comforting one.[Less]
Very good but a bit short to excelent

Don't tale me wrong, this is a very good hotel but there are some problems and they are not unique for this hotel.
The rooms almost always smells of smoke, even if you get a non-smoking room.
There[More] are potential to make the breakfast a bit better. Some times the food trays are empty or the food is cold. That it is cold is often due to the fact that the average chinese doesn't close the lid. Sad but true.
The "gym" isn't really a gym. It's more of a room with two treadmills.
The rooms are normally very nice and spotless clean, except from the smell of smoke. They have two choises of pillow, soft or hard but the bed is on the hard side of you are european and not used to speep on a plank. The bathroom is well lit and the shower is big enough for two.
The hotel is very nice positioned close to railway and the Changdi hi tech district.[Less]
If you have a gym and a swimming pool would be better.[Less]
this is my 2nd time to this hotel in two months. Both experiences are very good. Friendly staffs all around the places. I am glad i did choose the same one this time.[Less]
The hotel is good.
it is near to the office and easy to find the place for eating. The hotel staff is kind helpful. Thanks anyway.[Less]
