No pool and fitness center as advertised.
Overall I liked the 1 bedroom apartment. Just what I wanted, space (Vs a one room hotel room). It was functional, if not perfect. Two western satellite channels (HBO and Bloomberg) was just enough to allow for some relaxation at night and the in-room dining from hotel's restaurant was convenient, and good (Chinese food). Location is really good for that side of town (Xidan), as no more than 5 minute walk to metro station (Metro Lines 1 & 4), surrounded by shops, malls and restaurants, and walking distance to Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square (20 minutes). I would call it mostly a location/district for local residents (Vs foreign tourists or expats), but interesting mix of food and entertainment. Friendly and efficient staff.
Bathroom was functional (decent water pressure, everything worked), but shower does need a reno! It would have been nice to have some kitchen utensils, plates/bowls/pots and pans, after all, there was a complete kitchen there (micro worked, full size fridge, and most importantly the water kettle worked for my coffee/tea). Front desk could have been more helpful in calling a taxi when I checked out.
We booked two rooms and had lots of space. Very close to the tourist attractions and food nearby. The floors 6-7 of the hotel were part of a plaza that had restaurants.
There was no gym, pool or health area. There was a kitchen with nothing in it, not even knifes and forks. Hotel was very old and out dated. As foreigners we felt very much like the staff were laughing at us and our lack of communication.
Did not take break fast at the hotel but huge variety available in surrounding. Dinner was excellent. Personnel very attentive. Hotel excellent location (Shopping, Subway, Restaurants) Very Clean. All was great.
