Although my room was rather small, it was clean and neat. The people at the front desk were all helpful and accommodating.
I will say, however, that this hotel was a little difficult to find. If you stay here and can't speak Chinese, be sure to have the hotel's phone number in order to have them tell a taxi driver how to get to the hotel.

Right as I returned to my dorm, I quickly changed into comfortable clothes before taking the subway to Sanlitun. I made dinner plans with Bethany! So happy to spend my last night in Beijing with her.
As I was waiting for Bethany, I walked around Sanlitun. There was a public exhibit out telling the stories ...
... my friend Tracey, she used to work at Disney English, teaching young Chinese kids English through the world of Disney, but had just resigned & been offered 2 terms at an International school which is fab, she now works Mon-Fri instead of evenings & weekends so it means I’ll get to see a bit more of her. We went for a wander to a new posh shopping / office complex with some art displays, then had a coffee & a wander around the shops, a really nice girlie ...
... lady who Gareth was bargaining with insisted he look again and when Gareth said he wanted to think about it, she slapped him ******* the back. Laughing we promptly left the market avoiding further 'negotiations', as we walked onto the pedestrian street to stumble across a 'foreign book store' where I bought the book about Henrietta Lacks - a book I had read a raving review about but didn't think I would find on this trip - or in China! Brilliant! Off back to the hostel ...
