We were on a Nexus tour so being situated in the business district on a very busy road, between the 3rd -4th ring roads was not a problem..but to some it could be rather isolated.. subway is a 2 minute walk with the downtown area taking 45 min. There is a Mcdonalds nearby and Walmart 15 mins by foot ,no external eateries.. hotel has several.
The lobby and piano bar are beautiful and great places to relax after a busy tour day..the bedroom / bathroom are very spacious, beds typically asian rock hard, buffet breakfast plentiful.
Rated 5 star but not quite ....

First impression of Beijing: The pollution can't really be overstated - I'm only in an outer district of Beijing, but it genuinely feels like you're in this sort of bubble - you can't feel the sun, and can barely see it either. What would probably be a nice, sunny day just ends up being warm but foggy because of the smog. First Chinese language success! It was mild success, but all the same, I managed to say that ...
... underneath the metro station. Once inside the bus station we were shortly accosted by a friendly staff member of the bus company who insisted on assisting us onto the correct bus. We were slightly bemused; courtesy of this nature was a rare occurrence in China, however we did not doubt her good intentions and followed suite.
We had barely endured an hour on the bus when our friendly acquaintance indicated that we needed to alight in order to achieve our ...
We rolled into Beijing North train station a with a little delay, and were escorted by someone from the travel agency to our way-too-fancy-for-us-scroungy-backpacke rs three star hotel which was conveniently located next to a metro station and only a ten minute walk to Tian'anmen Square. This would be our home for the next five days, although in the end we decided to stay an entire week.
Beijing turned out to be fantastic, but our first impression ...
