"Good for a business stay"
My husband was invited on a business trip here and our host suggested the Holiday Inn. This is not a tourist destination although I had a very nice morning in a local park and walked to the Capital Museum. There is little in the way of attractions close by. That being said we had a very nice stay. Our first room smelled smokey and we were immediately switched to a new room on request. The rooms are smaller compared to other places we stayed but it was sufficient. Very clean bathrooms. Western style buffet with a la carte menu. Staff was friendly, helpful and for most part spoke English.
"Only stayed for a couple of nights"
This was a good place, close to a lot of well connected buses, trains to get into town and see the main attractions. The hotel chain does a good job of providing similar services they would in other hotels.
"Near the subway"
The best point is the localization, it is near the subway! (That work very well there). The hotel was very clean and the breakfast was good, but the women from reception does not speak english (she need to ask for help)
"A quite correct and non expensive place to stay in Beijing"
I went there with my wife and we stayed for a week at that place. We got a correct room (but with a view on the streed behind the hotel...) that hasn't its door to the pool area where it was much more loudy ( so, a tip to remember while asking for a room). The restaurant was incredibly full of every food you might think about inspite the fact that the coffee was an american style one ( really not good..), so instead of our usual morning coffee we drank tea...The service was good at the reception desk as at the restaurant, we have had no problem at all to get a taxi by the door woman and inside the hotel there's an automatic change box. Out of that the Beijing's metro was 5' walk from there..
"Not very close to attractions "
Not close to attractions. So don't be deceived by name as we were. Is close to subway but was not easy to find and we walked a long way to next section first few days(in 35 degree heat) until one kind girl took me and showed me entrance via shopping mall. Signage is not easy and not in English and the only directions we could get from staff was "left ,left". We stayed at holiday inn because we knew we didn't speak mandarin and would need help and usually there is reasonable standard at holiday inn. We were a mother and daughter traveling together and knew we would need help with directions. However not a lot of English spoken by staff ,most none at all,but staff pleasant on the whole. Didn't even know English for things like "forbidden city" and other major attractions. Western food at breakfast always cold but good variety. We were not given the type of room we booked. (Superior twin room)It was downgraded without discussion with us when we explained we booked a twin room. Not as clean as could have been. Hairs in bathroom on arrival. Also on our floor there were large drop cloths on the carpets in the hall way from elevator and along the corridor. Looked like painting drop cloths but not painting as far as we could tell. On the whole wouldn't recommend. Saw much nicer places for same price we paid in more convenient location.
