"Five star hotel' More like sleazy motel. "
I stayed here for three nights as part of a tour for the Great Wall Marathon, as the whole group was required to stay at the same hotel. It seems like the hotel caters heavily towards tours. If you have the option to book your own hotel, do not stay here. As others have mentioned, the bathrooms are in extreme need of renovation and everything is really worn down. What bothered me the most, however, was returning to my room every night to find nearly a dozen business cards for prostitutes under my door. Not only is this hotel worn down, there is some sleazy activity going on in it. Stay away.
"Dont Expect Much"
Hotel doesnt match the 5 star rating.u Overall hotel is old and wear off. Staff is friendly and quick . However the room is a letdown. The bathroom is old and the aircond is noisy. MRT is in a walking distance but expect to walk more then 2km.
"Take the renovated rooms"
I opted for the renovated rooms and got a spatious room with a new bathroom. Everything worked perfectly with 2 exceptions: the A/C would not turn off even when I closed it, so it was very cold inside the room, and there was no coffee maker (and there should be). A minus was that the fridge was locked and we had to ask them to unlock it (but this happend to us in Hanzhou as well, so perhaps it is a Chinese standard policy'). My friends who took the regular rooms where also very pleased with the accommodation (their rooms where more spatious than mine and they did have a coffee maker but their bathrooms where a bit tired). The breakfast and dinner was very good and clean with lots of variety in both western and eastern food. The gym small but clean and I was on my own every evening. There was also an indoor pool but I didn't use it. The hotel has a spa and offers massages (which I didn't use). They have a bar at the top floor (I think at the 28th floor of the new wing) which rotates. It is very beautiful but rather expensive and the spin stops at 10-10:30pm. Still it is worth the visit. They offer free wifi everywhere, including the rooms, and it is very fast and reliable. The location of the hotel is excellent. Malls and markets of all kinds (cheap, expensive, mini markets, clothes, electronics etc) are at a walking distance from the hotel. Also some major attractions are at walking distance. As it happens in China, don't expect people to speak English, even if it is the hotel reception. However, they will make an effort to service you as best they can! All in all a great experience!
Took clients to Beijing and we stayed for 4 nights. For the price, I am sure there are perhaps other better options but not many could match its location. Not in a very busy part of town and near subway lines. Beijing station is just 2 blocks away for farther exploration. Not far from Tienanmen or Temple of Heaven. Bathtub looks aged from chipped enamel but fairly clean with good housekeeping. Mini bar is minimal. Breakfast spread is varied enough. Visit the revolving restaurant for the view.
"Three night stay"
I stayed three nights at the Beijing International Hotel as a base for exploring a little of Beijing and visiting the Great Wall. My room was beautiful. It was on the 16th floor, with an incredible view. Despite what others have said, my bathroom was lovely, a big bath where I could see out of the window over Beijing. Perfect! It was clean and spacious. The wi fi was great. Close to the forbidden city and some lovely parks. Visited the pool, the staff were a little rude and unhelpful. But reception and other front of house staff were great and really helpful.
