I had an absolutely fantastic stay at the Xijiao hotel! The staff was very friendly and spoke was very patient with me when I would communicate to them with my limited Chinese. There were also a few staff members that spoke English.. The hotel was very clean and modern, despite being there for a few years. The Wudaokou neighborhood is a very quaint neighborhood was well, very good for college students, as it is right near Tshinghua University. I will defiantly be staying here the next time I am in Beijing and I would recommend the Xijiao hotel to anyone looking for a place to stay that is near Tshinghua University and in a vibrant neighborhood!
Check in was challenging, they show 2 reservations under my name. I showed them my expedia print out and they were still confused. Maybe that is why I was double charge? read on..
This hotel is ok but i would not stay again. If you happened to book this hotel, DO NOT give them your credit card for room key deposit. They charged me for the entire stay,even though I checked in with my print out from expedia. I wasn't aware of the charge until I came back to the States and monitor my credit card activities. Charge was average out to be 13US/day cheaper than what i paid at expedia. Maybe that is why our room is so bad? didnt' give us the correct catagory room that we booked with expedia? Now I have to work with my credit card company to dispute the charge. when I hand them my card, I was told they just put an authorization and will cancel it when I checked out. Didn't know I was charged because I didnt sign anything.
"Nice hotel , will definitely stay here next time."
I really like this hotel , for the price it an awesome place to stay in Haidian District, Beijing. .It is a little far from downtown Beijing , but should be ok.
First of all , this hotel is new , so its really clean and good,friendly staff even though some of them had hard time understanding English, they tried to help me in ordering Vegetarian Food , its just that you have to talk slow and to the point :)
Four Points by Sheraton Hotel is in the Adjacent building so there are couple good restaurants and ATM machine in their lobby , which can be used as both Aloft and Four Point is owned by Starwood properties.
A wonderful experience. The staff were very accommodating and went out of their way at every opportunity to help us find tourist locations and find the way via the tube. They supported me with the process of sending an important document to the uk and the contacted our tour operater who we were struggling to speak to. Breakfast was provided however there was not much of an option. More variety for uk travellers is required: e.g beans, cheeses, etc overall an excellent service.
The hotel is nice. Rooms are amazing, including kitchen, sofa, fridge, AC. The stuff is really nice and helpfull. Everything is close by. Just to reach the metro you need to take a bus, but the bus stop is just infront of the hotel.
