Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Raza88 Home away frm Home
This hsnt bn my first time at this Hotel............and the reason is, well its staff- friendly and warm, and ofcourse the hotel bedroom itself, comfy and quite cozy, especially if u are lucky to get a room away frm the main road jst outside the hotel. Its a nice area, safe, clean, and central to where I need to be in Beijing.
Excellent value for money. A nice place to tuck in on a stormy Beijing night.
Thank you Holiday Inn. u do it for me.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Asianmade Good but need to improve on details in room
Good hotel overall .
However they need to improve in these areas:
Room : ensure the shower room floor trap don't ever clog up - this has happened to me on several stays here . I am literally wading in 2 cm of water . It is tedious to have to report to the front desk on such basics.
The air condition needs to be colder, yes even during winter ! It feels like it is blowing air rather than cooling the room.
The blue writing desk in most of the rooms I have stayed in are worn and fraying on the edges.
The clock radio / alarm/ dock is not user friendly and awkward to use . Change it !
Should retouch and repair worn out areas in ceiling and hidden areas in bath room to keep room looking fresh .
There is occasional raw sewerage stench coming from the wc itself. Happened in several rooms . This needs to be urgently looked into.
Housekeeping , although friendly needs to be more thorough in cleaning and dusting exposed areas and hidden areas too . I do my own wiping along the bed head and it is invariably dusty.
Breakfast food options need to improve . Change items daily and frequently. Need to be more creative nd imaginative. Same food items is a put off .
After 3 nights , gold or higher rewards club members should have rewards amenity refreshed .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by omarcito9999 Very comfortable bed, clean room and bathroom and excellent shower!
This is the second time I stay at the Holiday Inn Express Dongzhimen. The staff have always been very friendly, attentive and kind. The rooms have always been kept very well, always ensured the bathroom is cleaned very well, showers worked great and if I required any assistance for any reason, there was always a solution. I highly recommend this hotel, and most certainly having it located conveniently in the center of town, was the cherry on the cake.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Great hotel but disappointed with location
The staff were helpful, hardworking and friendly. The breakfast is one of the best we have had in various Holiday Inn Express hotels and good choice and managed to get a table every day even though somedays were busy. The laundry facility was useful. But we were disappointed with the location which is central under normal circumstances, but some 10-15mins walk from the nearest subways stations/airport express. The walk is not particularly pleasant as the pavement was not smooth with many pot holes, building works and walk will have to cross two busy junctions. It is not the hotel's fault, but it is a factor in our choice of hotels. Otherwise, the hotel itself provided 5 star experience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nordicvisitor great location
Although upon approach to the hotel, it seemed as though the taxi driver had taken a wrong turn, once inside the place, we were very pleased with the results. It turned out to be a very good location for exploring Beijing during a short weekend get-away. I would recommend this location to anyone interested in a comfortable, reliable place to stay when you are spending most of the day out exploring the city. Nice rooms, breakfast, helpful staff. That is exactly what we needed for our stay!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BCKF Great location, great service
This is the goto hotel for me in Beijing, even though some times it's quite difficult to get a room as it's almost always fully booked. Great location where the local taxis are able to find easily and it's also easy to get a taxi from the hotel as well. Add to it the friendly service and this is a place I would recommend to fellow travellers to Beijing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by frannybaby13 Comforts of a 5star hotel
Hotel had a comfortable bed, immaculate, pleasant surroundings in a very convenient, central area. Staff was pleasant and very helpful. The breakfast was outstanding. We had all the comforts of our 5 star tour hotels prior to this extra week on our own except for a bathrobe and scale. Wi-Fi was better here than in our rooms in other cities and we had cable television. This hotel is top notch at a fair price and I'd like to return. This is a highly rated recommendation for a fine hotel in Beijing.
I would like to add a "buffet" dinner like their wonderful complimentary breakfast and the lunch looked great.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ralphtse Worst experience staying in a hotel like this
I am spending my trip from the 7th to10th of April in Beijing, and staying in the Holiday Inn express dongzhimen shop. During the first night, I was arranged to room 609, but I found the room Wifi facility was down and could not be fixed until the next day, I was told to use the public wifi but the speed was slow, and therefore the hotel changed my room to 1032 in the next day.
When I changed to 1032 and spent a night there, I was woke up by cigreratte smoking smell, I am a non-smoker and hate the smoking smell a lot. Room 609 is on the non-smoking floor, why the hotel arranged me to a smoking floor without notification? So I asked the hotel to change my room again, hope everything fine tonight......
Changing three rooms in a three nights trip in Beijing in one hotel, which is my worst hotel experience I have ever had.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by swyswy nice hotel, friendly staff
Overall it was a pretty nice hotel and we had a good stay. I particularly enjoyed the fruit basket (for being a platinum member). The staff at the restaurant was very helpful.
Although we arrived at the restaurant just after the breakfast hours, the waitstaff went to the kitchen and brought us each a large plate of assorted breakfast food. It tasted pretty good too.
The location was also pretty good. It was next to Sanlitun, and is close to a supermarket with lots of Western imports.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shelster Great BUT.......... extremely small rooms
I brought my family here to use my points to say goodbye to the Beijing after living here for 15 years. I have ONE wife, ONE 9 year old daughter, and ONE 6 year old boy. Being a platinum member the staff kindly upgraded me to a larger suite with a pull out couch that look the size of my suitcase. We took one look at the room with the couch and the 1 queen size bed and said oh not going to work and left for dinner.
When we returned the maid had made the pull out couch for us and we decided to give it a try. So I slept on the couch, my wife, and daughter on the bed while we made a pallet for my son under the desk. All very very tight with little walk room. We lasted for 3 nights but had to come home early because it was too small.
Staff was excellent!!! And I'm picky about kindness in a hotel. They did not bark at me for having 4 people and brought extra blankets and towels. Since I slept on the ground 2 nights, I could tell the carpet was still very musty. Then again BJ weather and windstorms come in and it's very dusty.
Facilities: Wonderful. Still a small hotel with no pool, but the breakfast area had 2 desktop iMac computers available with unblocked internet. Also had an XBOX and Wii for kids to play for free. My son LOVED the driving game. Also a fooseball table. In the lobby of the reception they also had 4+ iMac computers as well. And a Bank of China ATM. Best setup hotel I've seen in China with iMacs and free wifi. I can't tell you how frustrated I get when hotels don't give free Wifi since it doesn't cost them more. I call a hotel that charges for internet a penny pincher hotel, but this hotel was all free. Good Job!!!
Breakfast: Break for free, really the best free breakfast I've seen. Eggs in a few ways, bacon or ham, fruit, salad (yes, I know for bfast), great 100% Orange Juice (not sugar water either), Fried Rice, YouTiao (Greese Sticks), White Bread, Wheat Bread, Crossants, Coffee, Tea. Even my picky (breakfast) wife commented to me that she enjoyed having the breakfast. My only suggestion is to have more variety of fruit. MUST HAVE BANANAS!
Location: Good location but not great. About 15-20 min from Dongzhiman or 15-18 minutes walk from DongShShiTiao metro stations. Walked to Dongzhiman one day and had to stop twice because of the dust storm and wrap my kids and stop for 1 minute as the dust storm passed. Our clothes looked like it as well. About 2 minute cab ride from SanLiTun which is where we ate almost every day and shopped at the antique market. Element Fresh, Wagas, and of course the Starbucks. But the best part was the REAL Apple store and Cold Stone Creamery. We both speak Chinese so it wasn't a problem with taxis.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gazz Third stay...only place I would stay
The location is great and close to many key areas of Beijing...the whole atmosphere is relaxing and room is just what is neededfor a comfortable stay...western matress and soft pillows make for a great night's sleep...close by western cafes but still in the heart of the China experience...beacon with the breakfast menu would be a bonus.

I've stayed at this hotel twice now and it works well both for business and leisure. Great value for money. It's in a great location, with easy access to transport, 2nd Ring and the subway and airport express train. You're only a 10 minute walk from the bars and restaurants of Sanlitun. The hotel is modern, clean and has friendly and helpful staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lincoln625 Great Service and comfortable hotel
What they did was greatly beyond my expectation so far. Today (Feb.11th, 2013), when I arrived at the Holiday Inn Express Dongzhimen Hotel and checked-in at the Front Desk, I had undergone an unforgettable experience. Being noticed with my last name, I have been warm welcoming during the entire process and at the same time everything for check-in had already been well prepared in advance. Especially, I do appreciate for the hospitality from the agent Catherine who is very friendly, professional, skillful, and helpful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Donna03 AWESOME
Our first time in China and the location was accessible to everything. Our 1 AM check in of 11 guests was quick and professionally executed. Every shift had at least one english speaking staff member to communicate with yet they were all extremely helpful and courteous. I we had to travel by taxi they would call as many as we needed then wrote or destination in english and chinese on a card that we could show to the taxi driver--that helped us get around town. The room was well equipped and comfortable; the breakfast topped all with an enormous amount of food and variety.. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting China and I'm looking forward to returning in the near future

The location of this hotel is excellent as it is within walking distace to the metro. Taxi's are also readily available and does not cost too much to get to most places within the CBD.
There is also an excellent Chinese restaurant at reasonable prices just 50 metres from the hotel. A convenience store is also conveniently located next to this restaurant.
Wifi works well and the bed is comfortable. Rooms and the hotel in general is very clean and the service is good. Would definitely stay here again when I am next in Beijing.
