We had a two bedroom apartment which was very spacious with a lounge and dining area, two bedrooms and separate study room, kitchen and two bathrooms. The service was great, the apartments well kept and properly cleaned each day. The breakfast was relatively average, but at least we could enjoy western food each morning, and at the price, very much...

Before the trip to Beijing, I knew I want to book a hotel apartment and this one seemed to be the most reasonably priced one (with decent reviews), so I booked it with the 30% off promotion via somerset website for their 30 year anniversary. To be honest, review was mixed so I was a little unsettle prior to actually...

Stayed on the basis that we have 2 children...way too far from the action of Beijing. Staff are less than helpful, always focused on where they can make an extra $. Ask for help finding restaurants and they just point. Noisy at night, crappy location, tucked up a back street...guys look and you will find better.

Went there over the easter for a combined business and vacation trip. Pretty much "as expected", an average hotel in a big city. Clean and spacious room, decent breakfast and very helpful staff. There are lots of good restaurants in the area, a shopping mall with a Carrefour store reasonably close, and not too far away from the subway. Don't...

We stayed here last year for 3 months during the fall-winter. Overall the experience was good as the staff is quite responsive even though most do not understand English. So it takes considerable effort to explain to them what is not working or what we want. Two major problems in the serviced apartments are poor internet connection and lack of...

This is the only place I've stayed in China so I have no basis for comparison. My company paid about $120US a day and it was worth all of that.
