My expereince with this hotel
I chose to stay in this hotel not because it is good, but because I must look after a family member who is in a hospital near by. I stayed here in 2008, 2016 and 2017.
For 80 US Dollars / night, it is rather expensive for what it has to offer. Hotel is relatively clean, but some rooms smells heavy cigarette, and moldy. Breakfast buffet was good in 2008, but got progressively worse over time. Hotel restaurants are quite expensive. Room service is fast, but sometimes does not resolve problems. It is far from the East District where many tourists live. The hotel is about 10 minutes to the subway by foot, which is great. It has an ATM where you can get cash from an American credit card. It has a swimming pool, and a hair salon. It feels like a 2 - 3 start hotel, but it is listed as 4 star. Overall, it is not bad.

Don't try to go there unless y....
Okay. Staff does not speak English. I booked a room for a family of four, got a business room with a single bed and hooker business cards. I slept on the floor after refusing an "extra bed" that was a wooden board with a folded blanked on it ($50). Subway is 15 minutes walk away (and then highly efficient but that has nothing to do with the hotel). In a word: don't get fooled by the grand building, definitely NOT worth the money!!

Very nice hotel.
The hotel is very near the city center and the metro station. It consists of 3 towers. The rooms are suite-types, very nice and comfortable. There is some problem with the communication between the Towers, as the breakfast is served in Tower C. The breakfast consists mostly of chinese delicases. Its price is very good, internationally speaking, compared to the quality of services. The poor English of the personnel can create problems.

This is a curate's egg of a hotel. There are plus points. My suite was large, comfortable, well laid out, clean and quiet. The standard of housekeeping was very good on the whole. The staff were very friendly and tried to be helpful.
The minus points I think outweighed the plus points. Hardly any of the staff spoke more than a few words of English. There were no English language newspapers (not even the China Daily) available in reception. The food was undistinguished on the whole (although I had an excellent and reasonable dinner in the Sichuanese restaurant). The towels in the bathroom were always damp. There was no coffee machine in the suite: just some rather dull teabags. The wifi was slow.

It took me two days to find Br....
By the end of my three-day stay, I had learned to enjoy the China People’s Palace Hotel which, I am reliably informed, in Chinese is actually, ‘the People’s Home’.
I was nervous about staying here because of the bad reviews I read on this site. I write this to set the record straight and better inform would-be guests.
First the room: I stayed in Tower A. Clean, comfortable, spacious. No complaints other than only tea bags are provided - no coffee, creamer, or sugar, not even a teaspoon - China is a tea-drinking nation.
Next the conference venue: excellent. This place is better called a conference centre. There are multiple restaurants, meeting rooms and halls for large gatherings.
The staff: wonderful… But… Ah, now for the ‘but’. For a non-Chinese speaker, this place is hard-going. Some staff speak some English, but are not well practised. The only way they could understand me was if I wrote something down and they read it slowly. Aural comprehension levels are low. The staff are equipped with smartphones with a translating app. Ask a question, the staff member speaks into the app and the smartphone replies in English. This leads to confusion.
It actually did take me till the second day to find where breakfast was served. I would ask, ‘Where’s breakfast?’ The staff member spoke into the translation app. The words ‘A Layer’ appeared on a screen. I scoured the venue for a restaurant called ‘A Layer’. None were. I found it by chance when, early one morning, I saw a delegation from Zambia slip through a door on the ground floor that was not marked ‘A Layer’.
Breakfast: probably excellent, but entirely Chinese. Cereals: none, except for oatmeal and hot milk, oddly marked ‘For Muslims’. Make it yourself. Eggs: pre-cooked fried eggs. The rest: Chinese dishes. If you want a Western breakfast, head for the Tangla Hotel or KFC. Both are about ten minutes walk away.
A final beef, on my way to the gym, as I stepped from the lift, a girl in a tracksuit approached and said - in English - ‘It’s not free.’ That has the limit of her English. She was clearly trained to stand there and tell any foreign looking persons that it was not free.
Summary, nice place, friendly staff, but if you speak no Chinese and want a Western breakfast, check out other places.
