Unique to this hotel of 700 guestrooms, is the hot spring water from 1,400 meters underground and supplied to all guestrooms and spa. Utopia Chinese restaurant is famous for its authentic Peking roast duck.
Close access to public transportation and places of interest. Excellent location
Lack of pool
Excellent location, next to subway station (chongwenmen), in the city center, number of restaurents inside and around. Good shopping in the vicinity. For better exchange rates, can use next door Bank of China. Tour desk 8am-8pm so can book Beijing tours or shows easily.
It's somewhat old (60 years in 2014) but maintained well.
