Stayed at the Guangxi Plaza in 2006 for 17 days, July-August.
The hotel was recommended to me by a business partner, so I went in without any reviews or knowledge about position, quality, etc.
I was pleased with the quality of the room, rather large, with TV ( no cable ), large bathroom, minibar, all the works.Free internet provided in room, but as the hotel was being remodeled on some floors, there were daily breaks in the availability of the internet.But short ones.
The free breakfast was good,, diversified, both western and chinese cuisine, altough in 17 days I was bored with it.
Nice looking bar, and another restaurant that was below my expectations on western food.But who goes to China to eat what they eat back home, right?
Location-wise, it was close for my purpose, but a cheap taxi away from the center.You can also spend a morning during the weekend browsing the Panjiayuan market.
Also laundry service very prompt and affordable.
The price I payed for my entire stay was around 60 US$ /day, but I believe that was a preferential rate back then and not the standard one.
All in all, I really recommend it, as it is in a relaxed location, all the facilities nearby ( supermarket, KFC, dvds, etc ) and a cheap taxi away from Wangfujing et co.More
