    Friendly staffs and that’s about it. My 9-night stay was mostly so-so. The place is always noises and those thin walls are part of the reason. Housekeeping can be forgetful to re-stock room or makeup beds.

    A great hotel near main Ximending area (about 5 minutes walk). Nearby to everything. 10 mins walk to either Ximending or Beimen subway. Hotel is a full on hotel, multiple floors, with a sizeable lobby, attached bar and attached restaurant. The best part is the breakfast (option when reserving). It's a full on hot pot buffet for breakfast at the restaurant next door. It's totally worth it. Room can be a bit tight for US standard but actually sufficient. No windows, though, in many rooms as some rooms are in the basement. But sufficiently clean and modern.
