Location

The location of this Howard Johnson Paragon Hotel in Beijing is indeed very good: it is situated accross the Beijing Railway Station. Airport shuttle bass # 3 stops very near it. You can go to almost any place by subway as the subway station with the same name is within 50 meters. Pizza Hut is in the same building as many other restaurants. Rooms are clean and some have a nice view over the Beijing Railway Station. We have never visited the hotel's restaurants as we have had our meals at Pizza Hut and KFC situated in the same place.

Centrally Located Nice and Comfortable hotel”

Location, Local Restaurents, Public Transport

Very good hotel for your money(not a budget hotel), Room is not small and also not so big, our room is suitable for solo or couple travelers, or may be a couple of friends. Located in the city center (ring 1) just next to Beijing Railway station which has long distance trains(I think its bullet train - not sure) and also Beijing Subway station. But both these stations are very crowded but next subway station is just in walking distance too :). You can walk or get a short subway ride to Forbidden City, Tienanmen square or Temple of Heaven and few more major attractions in Beijing. Food is also good in near by restaurants and if you cant eat "Real" Chinese (not fake Chinese you eat in your countries) both Mac and KFC has successfully invaded China now, you can find one in every 100 meters :). I give 9/10 as a young traveler (as a group of friends).

The location is excellent, the Hotel itself offers very good value

Having stayed in this Hotel before I was really loking forward to returning, I was not disappointed! From 'Check in to Check out' I had a wonderful experience. Such a comfortable 'soft' bed, something China is not renownwd for!! The location,which is right across the busy street from the main Beijing Railway Station, is such a vibrant place, and to return to the Paragon one finds a lovely Haven of Peace, a really goos mixture.

Great hotel”

This was our second time of staying in this hotel, as knew it was a good location before getting our return flight home. Breakfast was great, large variety of choice. Rooms comfortable, with facilities a tourist needs. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Beijing as there is a mall below the hotel, with supermarkets, fast food/restaurants, coffee shops etc. The Oriental Plaza is a 15 minute walk. Easy access to get the metro in front of the hotel to Forbidden city/Tiananmen Square, The Place outdoor restaurants/shopping complex, various parks are all close by. The airport shuttle bus stops across the road from the hotel, at the side of Beijing railway station. Overall great hotel in a great location.

The Location, Cleanliness and Value for Money

We booked for only three nights at first in case we didn't like it but after the first night we extended for the full duration of our stay (8 nights). We enjoyed our stay and the location is perfect. Right across the street from the railway station and right above a metro subway station. We were going around Beijing using the metro and having one right underneath the hotel was great! We had a room that was sheltered from the traffic noise so it was really enjoyable. The Internet was average but was at least free. Staff at the check-in could smile a bit more but they were not impolite either. We tried the restaurant for breakfast once and it was good but way over-priced. There are many food outlets within walking distance so there is no need to eat at the hotel. We asked the concierge downstairs for a spare comforter because it was cold in the room and by the time we reached our room, the comforter had already been put in the room! The room was quite cold and the heater didn't seem to work but switching it off didn't completely switch it off so it was a bit on the cold side. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and if we happen to be back in Beijing, we would definitely stay there again.

Near Train Station and The main Road ChangAnJie. We took the train and the hotel is right in front of the Station. Howard Johnsons is not well marked. It looks like they call it the Paragon Hotel with Howard Johnson's in small letters. Because our rooms were not ready they gave us a complementary drink. The rooms were very nice and clean.

Not bad a place to stay”

- Room is clean - Staff are helpful (speaks reasonably good English) - Close proximity to train and MTR station - Close proximity to convenience store
- Rooms are a bit small - No free WiFi?

Overall, I enjoyed the stay at the Howard Johnson Paragon Hotel. I requested an extra bed when I booked the room, and sure enough, the extra bed was there even though it's not the normal bed, but the foldaway type, which is not too comfortable to sleep in. Room was cleaned every day, and a good job was done. It's close proximity to a convenience store means a lot to me, as I like to buy a lot of drinks and tid bits. Staff there speak reasonably good English, therefore asking for directions to places of interest like The Great Wall of China is a breeze. I would stay here again if I happen to go Beijing in the future.

A fine hotel in an exceptional location”

Having read the reviews I decided to stay at this hotel last year. Primarily as it was a 4 star hotel close to Xian Railway Station. .The hotel has a very imposing edifice and upon entering the grandeur continues. I was upgraded to a suite on the 12th floor. The suite was enormous. It had a completely separate sitting room with its own toilet and large flat screen television which could be viewed from the bed or living room. The bedroom had a very large bathroom with separate bath and a shower cubicle. There was an additional toilet. It was very impressive. I needed some help with instructions for taxi drivers in Chinese. The concierge even took the trouble of phoning my next hotel in Chengdu to make sure the address was correct. I was extremely grateful. A fine hotel very well staffed. Very good value for money.

In front of the hotel, there is Beijing Tourist Information where you'll be able to ask for City Tour that is cheaper than the hotel price. Concierge staffs are helpful. It is also 30 minutes drive to Beijing Capital Airport without traffic. I've stayed for 2 nights and very satisfied with this hotel. Definitely comeback when I visit Beijing again.

Not up to the usual high standards.”

This hotel has a premium location immediately opposite Beijing Railway Station. I have stayed at this hotel on previous occasions and been completely satisfied. At check-in I reminded the receptionist that I had requested a quiet room on a high floor. He allocated me a room on the 7th floor. This is not a high floor. Upon reaching the room I saw that it was opposite the lift. I returned to reception and was told that I would get an upgraded room. It was not an upgrade. It was small and dark. The next day I saw the front office manager who offered yo upgrade me for my second night but I was not inclined to repack. I was given a large plate of fruit. I should have moved because that evening until 10.30pm there was loud music from the quadrant below.

Quiet, Comfortable, and Affordable

My stay at the Howard Johnson Paragon Hotel was actually unintended -- my friends and I missed our train back to Shanghai so we needed a place to stay just for a night before we caught the first train the next morning. The hotel check-in took a while because of a lot of needless bureaucracy and we were pretty exhausted by that point so we considered leaving and just finding a different, more accommodating place. However, we stuck through the process and got a room. Despite the slow and annoying check-in experience, the room itself was great and comfortable! I think it might have been one of the most comfortable beds I have slept on in China. I slept great and felt very well rested to wake up early and catch my train. The hotel is very close to the subway station, too, which is very convenient for Beijing. I would consider staying here again in the future but my experience wasn't so great that I wouldn't consider other similar hotel options first.

everything is great”

It takes about 2-3 minutes to Beijingzhan subway station and takes 5 minutes to Beijing train station. I don't take bus much so I don't know about the bus route but I can say that the hotel is located at the transportation hub in Beijing. Some people said that it was too bright or loud at night but don't worry. I could sleep so well. But you can hear the ring bell every morning. I could notice after 7 am. The room was clean, bathroom was very clean with no smell. A fridger is working find. TV is OK. The lights are OK. Hotel clerks are OK and no problem in communication in English. Stores, McDonalds, KFC, and other coffee shops, food stores and souvenir shops are very close, almost taking 2-3 minutes. Actually they are in the next building to the hotel and the building is connected to the subway station. I think the hotel will not disappoint anybody.

Location in front of railway station and adjacent to metro; reasonable walk to many points of interest; well-maintained

As on previous stays, we enjoyed the central locaiton and wonderful view of the railway station, especially at night. Staff was very responsive to our needs and requests. Late booking got us a very good price. In China, Howard Johnson is a solid quality brand.

Good location ”

Hotel is opposite Beijing Railway Station. It's also walking distance to nearest subway station which is easy for you to travel to various sightseeing venues. There are shops & restaurants nearby. Hotel room is still acceptable & clean. You will need to use your room card at the lift lobby to access to your room. Thank you to the floor desk staff for the complimentary of birthday cake arrangement to my room as it was my birthday trip to Beijing. I really appreciated it so much for this kind thought. Keep up the good service & hope to see all of you soon again in Beijing
