I had an amazing vacation and a superb stay in this upscale hotel the last time I visited Beijing. Truly a five-star-hotel, it was equipped with everything that could make your stay as enjoyable as it can be. It doesn't show from outside, but this hotel is really luxurious and elegant.

The staff was reeeal friendly and helpful in the whole hotel, especially in the restaurant, where I had my breakfast every morning. My room was gorgeous, spacious and clean and I slept in the most comfortable bed in years.

The only drawback was that it was quite far from the central district, but fortunately there were minibuses for free that took you into downtown Beijing.

Zizhuyuan Rd, Haidian, Beijing, China
