This hotel is all about the location. Right next to the fantastic area of Ximending and 10 minutes walk to Ximen metro. The room itself was very tight on space for a twin room, however it served it's purpose of somewhere to sleep, as we were not at the hotel for much time at all. I was a bit perplexed...

An affordable hotel conveniently located in a quiet area just a few blocks from the busy Ximending streetlife. Service was exceptional with many of the touches only a luxury hotel would provide e.g. postal services, free printing of documents, and free snacks and mini-bar.The bathroom pack even includes contact lens saline and mouthwash. The rooms are spacious with a Japanese...

The staff checked on our booking and found that it should have been there but the hotel was booked solid. The staff made arrangements for us to stay at another hotel some 5...

W5 Best hotel is located on the fringe of Ximending area. It is about 15 minutes' stroll to the nearest metro: Ximen. Although the room is a bit small, it is clean and comfortable. The morning buffet spread is also good. There are many eateries and 7-Eleven in the vinicity. For short-stay visitors, this hotel is recommendable.

Had a couple of nights here on a business trip and have to say the staff were fab and the hotel was excellent. On the downside I left my bag with the concierge and a Chinese tour group walked off with it. However, Rex Lee the Chief Concierge took personal responsibility for what had happened and was very pro-active in...

I have stayed at this hotel on several occasions and the stays have been with a very good overall experience. The rooms are a good size and well designed, with a well stocked mini bar and snacks.
