Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AudreyC You get what u pay for
I visited Beijing for 2 days and decided on this location because it was very well rated much to my disappointment. The rooms are at best average, the bed is ok. The buffet breakfast is more like a zoo. Too many people, not enough selection, not enough seats. With that said, since the stay is inexpensive, you get what u pay for

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ajugupta Great Staff particularly Nicole
WE stayed for 3 nights in this hotel , its pretty locatable to all main shopping centres , rooms are pretty good and particularly staff are ready to help you all the time. I really appreciate one of the staff over thier Ms. Nicole who from the time we checked in till we checked out was helping us out in everything as she only knows English. She made our stay wonderful and helped us in reaching all good places . She is your best staff and deserves high promotions , very friendly and due to her , if we come to Beijing , will stay in your hotel . Also will recommend your hotel to others , only thing as lot of Indians i saw in your hotel , your breakfast should have some vegeterian dishes..

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Worldtravellercouple Comfortable facilities and good value for money
Excellent facilities, starting from clean and well maintained rooms and bathrooms. I spent 7 nights in this hotel in Beijing, and I was not disappointed by the Holiday Inn Express brand, which I knew from other experiences.
One should not expect luxury, or porters carrying the luggage. In this brand, as the name indicates, it is an "Express" hotel. But, the quality of the rooms and facilities is well up to date and are very clean and comfortable. And in terms of service, you have all you need.
Although most employees are not fluent in English, at the front desk they put in place an interesting mix, with young and cheerful clerks, supervised by a perfectly fluent person who would come to help and support at any sign of difficulty. I was 100% satisfied with the assistance of the front desk for booking tours, taxis, general information and directions.
The down side of the hotel is the location. It is short and walking distance from the Temple of Heaven, one of the main attractions in Beijing, but a good 20 min walk to the closest metro station.
Breakfast is included in the price, unlike most hotels in China, which is a plus. The quality of the food is very good, however, westerners would face some difficulty with the food style and choices, which is more asian style. Nevertheless I could manage well in picking what suited my taste.

Neither the taste nor variety is satisfying. The location is pretty far away from main shopping malls..

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sardi Trainee to be retained
Everything went well until the checkout time. The trainee who processed my checkin also processed my checkout. He did two wrong things. First, he issued me an invoice receipt for the amount of two days' stay while I stayed only one day. Secondly, he neglected to input my Priority Membership number when he already wrote it down upon my checkin.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tedl Room experience and Complimentary Breakfast
Room experience should have been excellent if not for the too warm temperature at night. It is not restful to sleep when it is warm. Otherwise every aspect of our stay was very good.
The breakfast hour is scheduled to start at 6:00 or 6:30 AM. However the kitchen staff only start bringing food out at the above hours and guests are made to wait. When breakfast is included, the doors open at the designated hour and all the food items should be already in place and a waiter/waitress welcomes you to the room.

Overall experience good. Clean and comfortable.
Minor things to be improved:
1. I found coffee/tea mark on the cup.
2. Free WIFI cannot be used at most of the time. The connection is very bad.
3. Radio interference is very serious when I used the iPOD docking station to play my music. The noise is louder than my music.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by suzmc Great Room but some drawbacks
The hotel is clean, modern and our room was great. We had a choice of pillows, coffee/tea maker in room. Huge shower and rooms were quiet. We would have liked free internet in our room rather than going down to the second floor for free internet access. The restaurant has lilmited food choices. There are no stores or restaurants nearby and the neighborhood is dark. Rather than take a taxi in the evening, we ate at the hotel restuarant with its very limited menu. Food was good but not great and as previously mentioned, there were few choices on the counter menu.

I stay in this hotel whenever I visit Beijing since it was built in 2008. The only problem is the WiFi in the room is not always good depending on the location of the room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Edottawa Excellent location and effective service
This is a great Holiday Inn. I had a meeting elsewhere in town but I had the chance to visit the Temple of Heaven. Be prepared for a long walk since the temple is a huge, huge park. The hotel has a nice little map with the surrounding attractions (including the Tiananmen Square). The breakfast is very basic so do not expect much. Clean and effective. They could use having a small convenience store with postcards, knick knacks, more snacks. The one just outside the hotel door has chips and booze.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Emily89 Quiet location, convenient
This hotel is a good base for visiting Beijing. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The building is nicely-designed and the decor is attractive. A number of worthwhile sites are within walking distance. The closest metro station is a 20-minute walk but worth discovering for convenience in getting around town. The Beijing South Railway Station with high speed rail connections is just ten minutes away by taxi.

The location is not very convenient as it is not close to any shopping or tourist district unless the Temple of Heaven itself (walking distance). However hailing a cab is not a problem at all and it's only about 15min to most of our destined places (TianAnMen Square, WangFuJin, Pearl Market, Sanlitun).
Hospitality - Staff was very friendly and pretty helpful in most things we asked for. But language is still a barrier as most of the staff only understand very little English.
Cleanliness - I have to say that I'm quite disappointed with the housekeeping. The housekeeper never really clean our bathroom, they only changed the towel, also didn't really provide us with bathroom supplies unless we request for them. Bed was made carelessly and never vacuum the room carpet.
My overall experience was just okay.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JasonPlatnumMember Do not expect good service or people that care
I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. The checkin service for a platnum member was poor, they got the room numbers wrong and had to come back and have them check numbers and redo key. Each evening and each morning vendors on property trying to sell things to you. Breakfast choices were not great, and staff could not be bothered to clean up tables that were empty. Children and I ended up sitting on a window ledge to have somewhere to sit.
Hotel changed my reservation after I received confirmation and then had to spend 45 minutes on phone with Priority Club to get it changed back.
Rooms (3) were booked under bonus points rate, and after stay was not given priority bonus points, in fact they removed them.
DO NOT STAY HERE......EVER

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 No free internet!
Overall, I was satisfied with the environment of this hotel. The clothing was clean and the bed was really comfortable. But, I just cannot understand that, a wonderful hotel such as Holiday Inn refused to provide free internet service! Absolutely ridiculous. Also, I don't think the traffic is convenient. Lots of taxi drivers outside the hotel, but you will never get one unless you tell them that you are going to the Airport or Hebei province.

Very good yet quite location that is close to the Temple of Heaven with only 10 minutes walk distance.
The room is spacious and the breakfast offered is of good value. Though I think the restaurant could have offered more choices for dinner.
I will consider staying there again for my next Beijing trip!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by IronRock Beijing Temple of Heaven
The overall experience was good and will consider staying again. I extended check-out time to 6pm due to my flight in the midnight and paid for additional 50%. The service staff wanted to clean the room at noon and I told her that I had extended my check out time and told her to clean it after I check out at 6pm. She wasn't seem happy with my answer and insisted to do the cleaning. And I was really firm with my decision. However, she came back knocking my door twice 2pm and 3pm, I told her the same thing. The cleaner attempted entry to my room at 4pm when I was taking a nap and that really freak me out. Luckily I locked the door from inside and she left after a few attempts. I continued with my nap and I was woke up again half an hour later by a phone call asking to clean the room.
The hotel should look into this seriously as such action was really disturbing especially when the guests need some good rest for a long flight. It's really iritating. Please improve the service.
