The reception staff was kind enough to make a room available for us much before the specified check-in time. This was really helpful, as we were tired after an overnight flight and an early morning
arrival into Beijing. We only had to sit in the lobby lounge for 30 min before the room was made available to us. The room itself was up to typical Holiday Inn standards. The bed and pillows were comfortable, and the bathroom amenities sufficient. My only suggestion would be to improve the English language skills of the concierge and restaurant staff (especially the Teppanyaki restaurant) as this would make communicating with foreign guests easier. The breakfast menu has decent variety to suit all tastes. There are western options (including made to order eggs) and plenty of coffee machines available so one can have their fill.
Overall, it was a a good stay. We slept well and ate well. [Less]
