I think this place is not too bad for China standards. However, people with international standards might expect more from a 4 star hotel.. The location is great if you want to visit the Botanical garden and Fragrant Hill part that day. Can be a nice getaway for those live in Beijing city center. Don't expect too much from the hotel's restaurant. Rather walk around the area, there are lots of excellent choices! The rooms are ok, not new, but relatively clean. The best facility is the swimming pool with hot springs! I only wish the sauna wasn't broken (for months, as they said).. For extra fee you can use table tennis and snooker.
