“Bare essentials”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2012

Tiny rooms, bare essentals. Fitness suite is currently out of use. Functional accomodation close to subway. But free wifi in lobby. Bearable.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2012

This is your typical 3-star hotel in China - tired, smoky, a bit dirty with staff who are unresponsive. But the biggest obstacle to a foreigner who can't speak, read or write Mandarin Chinese in Beijing, is preventing yourself from getting lost in this sprawling metropolis. Here is where the Chongwen Men hotel holds a trump card - it is in a prime location within the city. It is right next to a subway station, has a few shopping malls around the corner and across the street, is within walking distance to the famous Wangfujing Street and some of the nicer hotels of Beijing. It is only a few subway stops from the Temple of Heaven, Silk Market and CBD. There are plenty of places to eat, a bakery/coffee shop just around the corner, supermarkets etc. The subway ride is only 2 Yuan (US$0.35), so one can ride the rails all over the city quite easily from this location. If one is on a budget and doesn't mind a very basic standard of accommodation, this is worth considering, purely because of its location.

Its' a fantastic location in Beijing. This is very close to the places like forbidden city and other places in Beijing. Reception staff are not very co-operative but the travel desk girls are very helpfull in organising your tour around.

It's at a very comfortable location and metro is just beside the Hotel to move around the places you like. Breakfast was nice but organised in small area and may be big groups created bit mess during this time.

I found that when I stayed here it did everything that a hotel should do. It was clean, tidy and the staff spoke enough English to help if you needed them. Location is great in relation to the Beijing subway and the supermarkets. I'd recommend going to the supermarkets there as a sightseeing experience! I was only there for 3 nights as I spent most of my time camping in villages near The Great Wall but I found it a decent hotel, in a great location and the staff very friendly. What more do you need?!
