Room size was excellent for city centre with balcony.
Although staff were helpful and friendly, communication was a big issue and had to translate through an app.

Had an amazing time and the best was -Location location location !!! We were perfectly placed for everything. The staff were really helpful even though their English was very limited. Great hotel and would definitely return if we go back to China.
There was a strange sickly smell in the bathroom that was indescribable and we couldn't work out what it was? Not pleasant.

The location is great, and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Nice atmosphere. Located conveniently close to a transfer metro station.
There was no breakfast, which was very disappointing. I booked this hotel mainly due to the location and the fact that they offered breakfast, and I was highly disappointed that it did not produce.

The staff were very friendly. They had a parrot in the lobby! The room was beautiful and the bathroom was big. It was all very clean. It was located in an atmospheric and quiet area surrounded by many local restaurants and small shops. It was well connected with a nearby subway station.
The internet connection was rubbish, even after we asked the staff about it and they said they would send an engineer to try and fix it. There was a strange smell in the corridor for the first couple of days.

Staff was helpful when needing to book a taxi and also a tour to the Great Wall.
We witnessed a male staff member physically assault a female staff member after a verbal argument in front of us. She seemed to set off an alarm that resulted in nothing happening. The rooms were not what was advertised on the website, the bed was a foam pad on a raised floor. Additionally the bathrooms had issues draining after showers.

The staff was delightful and really nice, and upgraded me to a much larger and nicer room for free. The room was absolutely gorgeous, with modern features and furniture but in old Chinese style. A nice touch was two free apples in addition to the usual water and tea. Hotel is located in a beautiful hutong with lots of food and very picturesque. At checkout they gifted me a super cute panda luggage tag, just because. So sweet!
I don't have much to complain about. They didn't have the right socket adapter for my computer but that's something I should have brought, and they were helpful in telling me where to buy one for cheap. Also taxis don't always go all the way to the hotel (because it's a narrow hutong) - they do if you ask, but you have to know Chinese.

Location is central and a cheap taxi ride to most of the sites. The hotel is super clean, and our room was quite large and well decorated. Really good value for money
There was construction going on while we were there, and there is no breakfast at the hotel

Location in the middle of Beijing in the Hutong, near the metro station 5 minute walk. Clean rooms and excellent shower
Paper thin walls we stayed on level 5 and on one night there was so much noise, people shouting

The location is very convenient. It is about 3 minutes walk to subway Line 4. There are a lot of restaurants in the neighborhood. It is also close to many famous sightseeing places in Beijing.
The room is a little bit small, but it is okay for me since I was traveling by myself.

The shower (after you wait enough time) is hot and nice. The staff cleaned the room well enough. Location was ok.
We booked the double room. The room was very small, falsely advertised on booking.com, and the images there look nothing like the actual room. The bed wasn't a bed, but a futon placed on an elevated stage. We found at least 5 small cockroaches running around on our floor. Eventually, they also made it up to our "bed". There was flooding going on inside the bathroom. Wi-fi was slow and unreliable. The walls were very thin, and we could hear as if standing next to us a couple in the other room arguing. The staff, while mostly trying to be friendly spoke no English at all. Even our most basic requests were not understood. This also made complaining about the room impossible. All in all, we would definitely advise anyone to stay away.
