It was in a quiet location but close to the subway and lots of shops and restaurants. Fairly close to Beihai Park. Beds were soft and the room was cleaned when we were away. Great wifi. Difficult to find on a map as its down an alley - I only have chinese maps so this may be why and the address wasnt traanslated well into chinese. Not a lot to offer - no hotel restaurant or bar. a little pricey for its value
