Questions & Answers

I will be arriving earlier/later than the stated check-in time. Can I still check in?

I will be arriving earlier/later than the stated check-in time. Can I still check in?

Usually this is not a problem; you can arrange for an after-hours check-in with most hotels. However, you should always confirm with the hotel. You can use the "Special Requests" box in the booking process to inform them of your estimated arrival time in writing. It's important to remember that the property can't always accommodate these requests. It's always best to check with the property directly and in advance to avoid confusion. You can contact the hotel directly by calling them, the local telephone number you can get from Nehow's Local Guide after you finish the booking.

I want to check out after the stated check-out time. What should I do?

I want to check out after the stated check-out time. What should I do?

A late check-out can only be arranged with the hotel and usually depends on availability at the time of your stay. You can ask about the possibility at the front desk upon arrival.

  • Great location,good hotel
    Sydney, Australia | Sep 12, 2018 | Trip type: Couples

    We were lucky enough to be upgraded the a king suite on level 6. The room was huge, although a bit dark and needed more lighting.

    The location is excellent being within 500m to the Forbidden City and 1km to Tian’anmen Square. However about a 20 minute walk to the closest subway. Excellent local restaurants close by.

    A special thank you to Joy Chen on reception who went way beyond expectations in helping us re-book our Great Wall tour after the previous day missing the bus because the taxi driver took us to the wrong subway. Joy contacted the company and arranged for us to go on the tour the next day and even came back after her shift with all the paperwork in the English and Chinese which was so much appreciated.

  • I had a great stay
    >> | Sep 11, 2018 | Trip type: Solo travel

    I was upgraded to a nice suite in the 5th floor because they ran out of regular rooms. I had no complaints about the accommodations. Sure there were some small chips in the paint but that doesn't deter from the spacious accommodations. Bed was just the right side of soft and firm for me. Room was clean and didn't smell. The concierge speaks English so communication was not an issue. I had trouble getting a taxi willing to use a meter because the sharks just outside wanted a flat rate that was well above and beyond normal. The concierge was able to secure one for me.
    As for the location, it is close to Tiananmen, the National Museum, and the Forbidden City. Suffice to say location is pretty good for those major sights. The two downsides are the subway stop is a 15 minute walk away so if you are lugging luggage, you will have to haul it a bit; and secondly, if your room faces the road, you may be woken up at around 7 when the traffic picks up and people start honking. All in all, a pleasant stay for me.

  • Great location, serviceable hotel but a few odds and ends worth noting.

    We arrived in Beijing after the long flight weary and hot. Our car criss-crossed down numerous twists and turns featuring tree lined streets and neighborhoods of huotongs. We arrived at the hotel which is on a busy expanse surrounded with shops and restaurants. At first I wasn’t sure it was hotel as the building was a cube structure covered with a grill mesh - very industrial looking. In terms of location, immediately down the street is the exit portal to the Forbidden City. Overall, it is in a good place to access sites although walking 15 minutes to get to things is not out of the ordinary.

    Lobby and check in - Three thin steps get you into the lobby. There is a small metal ramp to drag luggage up but the angle is poor which means it is easier to life it. There is no one manning the door and there is no help with luggage although we did spot luggage carts in the lobby. Be prepared to take care of things yourself. Check in was okay as our guide helped. They will want your credit card for a deposit. Be sure to remind them on check out to reverse the deposit. The front desk personnel know a smattering of English but anything off script is out of bounds.

    Reception, hallways and public areas- The reception area is clean but there are no seats for waiting although there is a small library at the back. The decorative theme is sleek glass walls everywhere, dangling lights and lots of fading roses. The central courtyard allows light into what might be a pretty dark building absent this feature. The hallway to the rooms is very clean but has white carpet making bags difficult to drag. the elevator was clean and featured a sign that read “buttons disinfected on the hour.” Germaphobes rejoice. You will need your room card to gain access to the upper floors. The elevator is smallish fitting about 4 people and two big suitcases at a time.

    Room- Our room was on the 5th floor and overlooked the street. You will hear traffic noise but that dies down after 11 pm. The windows flanked the entire length of the room but the mesh grill inhibits light a bit. The room was large and spacious including a rather huge closet featuring two robes, slippers, a safe and two areas to hang clothes. Decor feels a bit dented and scratched here and there. The room features dark coffee colored floors, dark wood cabinets, dark colored furniture in the sitting area lined in grey, green and brown striped fabric and a dark grey headboard. It lends a heaviness to the atmosphere. There is only one lamp at the bedside and one outlet. There is a stocked fridge with water and soda. The 4 bottles of water come included in the rate which is very helpful. The room was clean. Two other lamps provide light as well as a few overhead lights. There was a very faint trace of cigarette smell even though the room is a nonsmoking room. Air conditioning worked fine. Internet was excellent. No problem accessing email.

    Bathroom- The bathroom is separated from the bed area by a thick see-through glass wall and pull curtain. You need to make sure you leave the bathroom door open at night or risk wandering into the glass. Our bath had a massive round soaking tub and small corner shower. They provided shower shoes but we brought our own. Certain elements of the bath could use a good scrubbing including shower floor and under the sink- visible and you could see where the water and soap had splashed and dried on the chrome pipes. My husband pulled a thick wad of black hair out of the drain- gross. The shower has dark slate grey tiled walls but the grouting had been patched here and there with a lighter colored grout which made it look a bit faded. Guest towels are thin affairs turning from white to over-washed greige but there were wash clothes which was a pleasant surprise. Shampoo felt like a baby shampoo and there is no conditioner. They do provide soaps and other necessities like a shaving kit, toothbrush, etc. which was nice. They also provide a blow dryer. Toilet has a weak flush so be careful there unless you know the Chinese word for “plumber.”

    The Bed- firm as a board - maybe it was a board. Awoke a bit stiff. Linens were white and fresh. This is not a featherbed or Westin style bed in any shape or form. Four pillows total but two are actually bean bags. They are heavy and it was like sleeping on a pile of beanie babies. Needless to say these were pushed aside.

    Breakfast- very good. Don’t miss out on the chocolate croissants. They have eggs made to order, a pancake station and a really amazing steam bun station. There is a hearty blend of western and eastern breakfast offerings and lots of fruit juices they keep on ice but don’t put ice in them so they are safe to drink.

    For the money, it is serviceable. Nothing to rave about but it will take care of your needs. Hope this helps.

  • Good location, but attention to detail is a big problem
    Sep 8, 2018 | Trip type: Family

    The major reason we booked directly with this hotel and not through an agent was that they were offering FREE airport pick up from Beijing airport. This did not eventuate and after very frustrated telephone calls from us and the helpful airport staff (as we do not speak Chinese!) it eventually transpired that the staff at the hotel reception knew nothing about it. A representative from the hotel chain then telephoned us and asked us to make our own way to the hotel, apologized and said they would arrange a free airport transfer BACK to the airport for our return journey by way of compensation. Several emails later and promises of a phone call and nothing happened and guess what? No collection to take us back to the airport either. We were left to get our own taxi at our own expense - AGAIN. We are still now, over two weeks later in email correspondence trying to sort the whole mess out. Not getting very far I might add.
    In addition we booked a family suite as we were travelling with our two children and when we arrived the sofa bed had not been made up, nor were there enough towels in the bathroom. We had to chase around the hotel to get the bed made up and receive the towels we needed. Even then, each day, we only ever got three new bath towels, despite there being four of us staying in the room!
    On the plus side, the room itself was relatively nice, although noise from outside was a problem as we had a front road facing room, but the breakfast was lovely. It is a little tired and in need of some TLC, but our review would have been so much better if we had firstly got the airport transfer we should have had and secondly not had to go around chasing up staff to make a bed up for our tired children.

  • Great location close to the Forbidden City
    Melbourne | Sep 7, 2018 | Trip type: Friends getaway

    Really good little hotel about 250 metres from the forbidden city. Spacious room, really comfortable beds, roomy walk in shower. Excellent breakfast assortment and surprisingly good dinner menu offering Peking duck. The drinks are a bit pricey and the staff have very limited English but that is not a problem if you have google translate. Rooms could do with a little bit of a clean up but great value in a really central location.
