Hotel is in very good location.it has plenty of rooms
general atmosphere is good service is good .
and Staff is help full. Price is ok[Less]
OK for business, very friendly staff
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]
Nice and clean hotel
Clean and spacious room, good location and close to public transport.[Less]
Other than the great location of the hotel, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. As a Platinum Elite member, I was welcomed as a return guest with a free upgrade to the executive floor.[More] Horizon Zhang helped to reseve the right room for me before my arrival, and went out of his way to make me feel at home during my stay. I would definitely stay at the Holiday Inn Downtown Beijing again next time I visit China.[Less]
Great staff, service and location
This is my second visit to this Hotel and the reason I keep coming back is the service and staff attitude. Excellent location, near local shops and subway system.[Less]
A Beijing Gem in Financial District
Great location, great service, great value. A must to check it out.[Less]
Rooms too hot in Winter
By Frequent traveller 21
PROS: The hotel is well maintained and the staff are very good across all areas. The rooms are clean and quite large with very nice bathrooms.
CONS: In winter you cannot control the[More] air-conditioning. The temperature seems to be set at 24 deg., Celsius. It is far too hot to sleep, even with the air-con turned off as you cannot open the windows. The pollution was at dangerous levels when I was there so even if you could open the windows it wouldn't be advisable.[Less]
Overall our stay at the Intercontinental, Beijing Financial District was excellent. There were only two minor points on which to improve. First is the fact that for a hotel accommodating[More] international clients, there might have been more staff fluent in English. Communicating was a little difficult with some of the staff.
Internet access could have been better. There was no internet access in the public areas. This could be an issue related to overall access within the country and so not necessarily an issue with the hotel itself. Access within the guest room was fine.[Less]
