Basic

May 8th, 2019

Basic hotel. Location is the major reason of staying since it is located near the diplomatic compound. Subway stations are quite a walk though. Breakfast spread is basic. Nobody seems to respect the no smoking regulations though, even the hotel personnel themselves as the smoke and smell come out from their office. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Don’t expect much

May 23rd, 2018

Scitech shopping Mall and Scitech Hotel are well-known address in Beijing for years. Decided to stay at this hotel for three nights recently because I hear its newly furbished. Overall, it’s Ok for just go back to shower and sleep. Accessibility is bad--the new lobby locates at a back street now, not easy to find entrance. Metro station is not that close and very hard to find taxis. The lobby looks grand, but noisy and smelly (I believe people smoked inside the hotel even no smoking signs on). Check in and check out were efficient and friendly. That was pretty much all the service I received during my stay. The room is small and tiny. All facilities look dated even it has been newly decorated. No international TV channels. Breakfast was terrible for the price, poor food selection and lack of service. The hotel branded itself as newly decorated 4 stars, but I can only give 3 stars in general. Even 2 for service standard is a stretch-- the concierge didn’t even offer to help with luggage. Has been told to talk out with bags to try my luck for taxi. Restaurant not open for business because it wasn’t convenient time etc. Facilities eg. gym, pool has to be pay additional fee. The Japanese restaurant at L1 is Ok if you are not in any hurry nor expects authentic Japanese food. It’s OK if a business traveller's Beijing destination is nearby, otherwise don't bother.

Hotels not that bad - academic anyway!

Nov 26th, 2016

I expected to find a dump, having read the previous reviews. However, in fairness to it, its not that bad - and certainly worth the price we paid. The Hotel is centrally located close to the Government business area, malls and activity. The lobby is impressive showing that it would have been wonderful at one time. The rest of the hotel admittedly needs some refurbishment. However, it not that bad. The rooms are certainly not smelly or dirty as others have suggested. The meals are similar to what most hotels offer. In any event, this s academic. The hotel will be closed beginning December for extensive renovation which the hotel says will go on till next October. Once that is done it should wbe a place visiting again, and we will. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

I give up!!

Oct 21st, 2016

After regularly staying at Scitech Hotel off and on over the past 15 years or more, and seeing the place steadily go downhill, I finally give up. Have just stayed there for the last time! The reason I continued to stay there was the good location, walking distance to embassies and the Diplomatic Residence Compound. But, there is almost nothing redeeming about the place other than that. The hallways are dark and smelly; the rooms are dirty and smelly. The windows are dirty. You can play with the air conditioner/heating controls all you want, but you don't get any change in the temperature of the room. I resorted to opening the tiny window for some "fresh" air, which took hours to filter into the room and then, of course, also brought the city's air pollution into the room as well. Carpets are dirty to filthy. Bathrooms need renovation, although the water pressure is great and there is plenty of hot water. Unbelievably, the TVs are still small cathode ray type, with only a few channels to choose from (CNN one of the few English channels). Beds are hard as stone and pillows uncomfortable. Breakfast buffet is mediocre. Internet wifi is unreliable at best. Staff are unfriendly and only a few speak any English. On a recent visit, I needed to to go the airport early (aimed to leave at 5:30 a.m.). No one at the front desk spoke any English and my communication was limited to computer translation of phrases, through which they told me "very difficult to get taxi in middle of the night!). Unbelievably, they couldn't call me a taxi! They finally got one for me around 6:00 a.m., but said I had to pay 50 yuan additional fee (50% more than normal price)!! Ridiculous!! I've stayed in worse hotels, but not paying this price. If their rates were cheaper, I'd at least give the place a "poor" rating, but for the price they charge, it's truly "terrible." Management should be embarrassed! I'm sure they are simply squeezing the last yuan of profit out of this place before knocking the building down. They certainly aren't re-investing any money to improve the facilities. Scitech Hotel used to be quite good, but it has steadily deteriorated over the years, with little effort to maintain and improve it. Like I said, I've tolerated lots of deficiencies in this hotel over the years, but latest stay is my last; I can't take it any longer! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Very close from embassies

Jul 16th, 2016

The hotel looks fancy in the lobby. The receptionist all with very high sense of hospitality. The rooms are bit funny. The isle in the room area to the room all feel old style. The room has the cathode tv of the 90s in a tv closet. The complimentary breakfast has good variety of chinese breakfast but limited non chinese breakfast. Coffee was the worst TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
