I don't know why Gate1 Travel (An American Company) would choose a hotel that has a concierge staff that do not speak English. I had a hard time communicating with staff for information and directions to local sites and tourist spots. Although, I give the staff my appreciation for putting a lot of effort to communicate. Nevertheless, it is still... More

The hotel is rather dated. It had the hardest bed that I have ever slept in. Some in our group had to request extra comforter just to be able to get some sleep. The breakfast buffet was one of the worst I have had. Staff spoke very little English and was rather hard to ask for directions or recommendation. For... More

We were on a tour and they pick the hotels for you. Right off the start some things were different here. The Lobby is in the basement, not the street level. We were lucky to have the tour guide check us all in. There are several people working the desk but only one speaks any English, and he works days.... More

The hotel is about 20mins fron the centre of Beijing. The hotel is clean and the room was comfortable enough. The staff have very limited English so if you do have any issues (we didn't) it may be a problem communicating. Very little to see or do in this area. Food is very cheap in the nearby restaurant. If I... More

I don't know about others' experience there, as I was reading it was average for most, but honestly average is putting it lightly....Not only I heard complaints after complaints made by every guest I ran into, but our stay there was also not the nicest experiences.

We arrived at this hotel to join our Tour Group. No one at Reception spoke English, so we took some time to get our room key, and still had no idea when we were meeting our Tour lol.

Stayed here as part of a Gate 1 travel tour.

This was a nice stop after a long trek across the Pacific. This hotel was made for tour groups it appears, and there were many on hand. Three to be exact to my knowledge, and for good reasons.
