Excellent value and location. Was a very good location as a base for tourism with nice places to walk around and dine after visiting the marvelous historic and modern constructions of Beijing.Genuine Expedia guest review
You will read other comments about the air conditioner issue, they are true my room was to warm most of the time almost to the point of being uncomfortable; however, if you can tolerate that the hotel is in an excellent location, has a friendly and helpful staff, and overall a great place to stay. While not hotel related, I would caution travelers to […] stay away from: 1) anyone who wants to show you art work, 2) anyone who wants to practice English with you over a cup of tea ( you will end up paying 700rmb for the privilege and 3) unmeatered taxi rides (1 unmetered cab tried to charge 300rmb for a 27 rmb fare) all of these are rip offs so beware travelers!

"Good location helpful staff"
This was lower priced than other equivalent star rated hotels so I was a little apprehensive. However it was all good. Walkable to the main attractions and close to the subway. Staff were friendly and helpful. I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Pros Each room is equipped with an air purifier, free Wifi and wired internet access. They even provide an ethernet cable. The rooms were tidied every morning and we were given fresh clean towers and 2 bottle of drinking waters per room everyday. Single bed is double size and King size bed is big enough to sleep 3 adults. They are very comfortable. Cable […] TV has 51 channels with 2 English channels (CNN, HBO). We have some great movies and cartoons. Cons We specifically asked for 2 connected rooms before check-in but was given 2 separate rooms for our 5 nights stay in Beijing. This gave us some problems as we have 3 kids traveling with us. We asked for the access cards to be activated for both rooms but was informed it couldn't be done that way. Not sure if it was the beds, 3 out of 5 (including myself) developed itchy bumpy rashes over our bodies during our stay. We requested the bedsheets and quilts to be changed on the third night. Temperature control in one of the rooms was not working. Test setting to 30°C, we still get cold air when temperature was between 20°C to 22°C at night. We shut off the air-con completely. Distance to nearest Denshikuo subway is about 500m, and to central Wangfujing pedestrian street is another 800m. If you have young kids and dislike walking through cold dark alley (Hutong) esp at night, get a taxi instead (beware of black taxi). It doesn’t come with a bathtub. For a 4 stars hotel to not have a bathtub is quite out of ordinary. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel good location"
Hotel is well located close to the Main Shopping area and easy walk to the forbidden cityGenuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable hotel with great deals in central Beij"
Sunworld Hotel is in a great location - close to the Forbidden City and the subway. It is in one of Beijing's major shopping areas. Front desk staff speak adequate English and are very helpful. Restaurant offers western and Chinese food and there are lots of food choices close by. TV has CNN and HBO in English.

"Affordable and comfortable"
Room for improvement with regards to the hotel room condition. other than that, a comfortable and affordable hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a luxury hotel"
We booked this place on a deal and it seemed like a luxury hotel. From the look of things, it used to be a really nice place (very expensive looking lobby etc) but actually, carpets were old and a bit smelly. The staff were not helpful at all and most had almost no English skills. Even when they did understand, they usually reiterated the thing that […] was not available rather than helping find solutions. Beware - even though the room was paid for, they required payment of a 400yuan (£40) per night 'deposit' (which was the same price we paid for the place). They did refund this on departure, at least. However it is a great location for sightseeing - forbidden city and tianamen were both within 20 minutes walk. The bathroom was small but nice and one of the women at the in-lobby tour operator was nice. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel in a really good location, but not 4 star quality. The hardest beds and thinness pillows of our whole China trip.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Modern hotel in one of remnant traditional areas"
This & its sister hotel undoubtedly involved knocking down part of the old city, but it still offers a vantage point for getting a feel for traditional life as opposed to the computer-game skyscrapers & superhighways that are replacing it. I recommend a visit to the nearby Shijia hutong Museum. , plus many eateries nearby (many Chinese, plus McDona […] ld's). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great Service. Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. Room not big but cozy. Not need to walk about 8 to 10 mins to nearest Train stations (Dengshikuo and Wangfujing). However along the way there are shops to look around. Overall it is a good stay,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable, friendly hotel in a fabulous location"
The Sunworld Hotel is a comfortable, friendly hotel that offers exceptional value for a Beijing stay. The location is unbeatable - just off the Wangfujing Rd shopping strip, a short walk from the Dengshikou subway station, and about 20 minutes stroll from Tiananmen Square. The breakfast buffet was satisfactory with a selection of western and Chinese […] foods. The option of an omelet made while you wait was a nice touch. We stayed six nights and would have no hesitation returning. The staff tried hard to please. While the accommodation may be rated four star by Chinese standards, travellers expecting a western four star experience may find fault with small details such as worn carpets and bathroom cleanliness.

"Value for Money in Great Location"
We were very happy with the room, which was huge and the extra bed we requested was already prepared upon arrival. The hotel is clean and comfortable and it is located near Wangfujing which is a fun, lively shopping street. I would recommend this hotel! Great value for money!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Wangfujing shopping area."
Aged hotel, old carpet, but overall in ok condition.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Loation and price"
Overall lovely hotel; location to Dengshikou station and the 7/11 across the road was a lifesaver! I'm a Vietnamese/Australian and I could not live on Chinese food for more than 1 day! It's oily, fatty, chilly, spicy and overall no good to my digestive system; you'll be hard pressed to find anything there not rice or noodles in a spicy sauce unless […] you eat KFC/Maccas everyday. We survived eating cup noodles, 7/11 sushi and bakery goods. The people there were friendly enough and we should've learned more Chinese because communication was hard, not impossible, but hard. Be weary of smokers coughing and spitting randomly out in the streets. On our last free day we found a great shopping mall called SoShow where locals shop and there was a whole floor dedicated to figurines and collectables. Bring a good pair of walking shoes/runners; you'll need them. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great location but just your average hotel"
When I arrived in Beijing I took a taxi from train station and the driver took me to the wrong hotel (Sunworld Dynasty hotel not the Sunworld hotel), so be aware that there is a hotel nearby with similar name!! I ended up walking to my correct hotel less than 5 mins away. Sunworld was just an average hotel but the bed was comfortable and decent TV so […] that was enough for me as I didn't spend much time at hotel other than late in evening. One thing - do not eat at the Hotel Buffet - I did that on my first night as I arrived late and just wanted to eat something. However ended up eating Fried Rice as the other food was gross. After that I never ate at the hotel preferred eating elsewhere. Overall it definitely was an AWESOME LOCATION!! Very close to most of the sights (within 15 mins walking distance) and also the main shopping district. My rating would be about 7 out of 10. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel, great location."
We stayed at the Sunworld Hotel for 5 nights and found the staff to be very helpful, breakfast was good and the location was excellent with a 10 minute walk to Wangfujing Street and close to a lot of good restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very convenient hotel"
Sunworld is close to the metro, main shopping areas and Tiananmen Square, all of which are walkable. Hotel itself is comfortable and clean. One disappointment was no coffee or tea in rooms. Restaurant prices a little high but the buffet in the café was excellent, very well priced (Yuan 108 Sept 2013) and there was plenty to eat including soft drinks, […] cola and beer. Staff speak just enough English for most basic needs - the only decent English speaker was the concierge!. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Very poor WIFI [ in the bathroom sometimes]"
Good location, helpful staff. Very poor WIFI and cannot use the wired internet because it does not work for Apple computer. Beer was around $7.50 USD including the automatic 15% service and if you did not notice that 15%, they gladly accept another 15% . Making it way to expensive for the service and decor. was 44 RMB each incl. the service The A/C […] did not work much, leaving it very difficult to sleep in the low 30. We changed room 3 times and the last day, we had good A/C Restaurant and bar were not high quality. Below standard. I only like the staff and location. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Practically No WIFI and poor A/C"
The staff at the desk were friendly but very little almost no english. The wifi worked a little only in the bathroom.. They told me that it worked better in the hall just outside of my room, it did not. They have wire internet but not possible with an Apple computer. The A/C was working just a little, drop the temperature from 38 to 30 but not comfortable. […] They changed my room each day to get better A/C On the third room, I had very good A/C I also was surprised of the beer price which was 36RMB plus automatic 15% service charge for the cheapest local beer. At this time its about $8.00 CAD or $7.50 USD for local beer and if you don't pay attention and you tip again, like i did, even higher. But its a good location and a little older but OK Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"GOOD LOCATION, VALUE FOR MONEY"
Excellent Location to walk to Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City. Easy catch Taxi at front is you need one. 7/11 shop across the road excellen/ inexpensive for fruit, snacks etc paticularly if you like to snack and not have big meals. The hotel site states 15min walk to Tiananmen Sq and Forbidden City this is highly impossible more like 30min if running […] and no obstacles or 45min a fast pace walk. The tourist information is good to book day tours this cost less than booking from Australia. Day tour with three major sites $60.00 Aus( each tour Aus $60. each) Hotel booked my ticket (Bullet Train) from Beining to Shaighai for a small fee ($4.) which is much easier. Highly recommend Bullet Train. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Very convenient location hotel"
The hotel is very clean and has convenient location to most of the sightseeing places. The hotel staffs are friendly with good Chinese food. The hotel arranges sightseeing trips at very reasonable rates. The banks are very close for exchange, even the hotel has money exchange policy at a reasonable rate to other hotels.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Near but yet not so near"
Hotel was located near to Wanfujing where all the actions and activities are. It is next to its sister hotel, the Sunworld Dynasty which is much more pricier. Room was spacious enough and clean with a flat screen TV with many channels including two or three in English.The room temperature was acceptable though the air condition was not functioning but […] then with temperature falling to -15 deg in winter, who is complaining. Service is lacking such as the bell hop not bothered in assisting with the luggage upon arrival.The front desk staff speaks fairly good English and the concierge is quite knowledgeable with the surrounding areas.The ever popular food street is also accessible by walking. Tianamen Square and the Forbidden Palace is nearby but not accessible by walking. Take the subway which is convenient and cheap (2 yuan) per trip regardless of distance but very crowded. Nearest subway station is Dengshikuo which is a 10 minutes walk. Did not patronize any of the restaurants in the hotel but a good eatery, Merryhome opposite the hotel serves cheap local food with excellent dumplings. Overall this hotel is value for money and would come back again if visiting Beijing again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

This hotel value for money, very near to Wangfujing which is a tourist must go. Many shops and eateries and a good bookstore. Also walking distance to the well known Beijing Roast Duck Restaurant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
i was in beijing only for the weekend and this hotel suited my purposes well...i initially selected it as it was a pick up point on a day trip i booked that was starting extremely early, however, i was quite pleased with my room (extra spacious) and comfy bed. Whilst it is a bit further away from the main historical sites (about half an hour walk), […] you would be hard pressed to find a closer hotel for the price you pay at sunworld. with that being said, it is only 5 - 10 mins walk away from the subway, and a key shopping avenue is just around the corner along with the night food markets / food stalls. overall i would recommend sunworld.

"good value for money"
We arrived very late and tired and the reception staff were very unhelpful and rude and continued to be so throughout our stay. The housekeeping staff were very helpful though. We didn;t realise the extra bed we had booked was not included in the price we had paid since we had requested it at time of booking. It was good that this was just about the […] only hotel we could find that would allow 4 people (2 adults and 2 kids) in one room. Most hotels wanted us to book 2 rooms which is just plain daft. Rooms are very small but that was not a problem since we were in the room for such a short time and only to sleep. Beds are VERY hard. Room nice and clean. Ate buffet in restaurant one night - it was Ok but nothing special. Included in the price were the drinks. Great location and cheap so yes would stay there again. There is a McDonalds just over the road and to the right which was great for the kids and breakfast, and a bakery and a supermarket. Wangfujing street to the left and a short walk. Also noticed that there was a boothe to book trips etc - didn' use it so can't commment but might be useful to know. Wifi didn;t work int he room but did jsut outside the door. We had to use the business center to check in for flight home and to print boarding cards - it was expensive becuase it was 2rmb per minute for internet and the connection was slow like dial up.

As other reviews have stated hotel is great value and in an excellent location. Room had everything needed and free internet worked well. Only problem was room was a bit too warm even with the controls on the lowest setting - not a real problem, but just enough to prevent a perfect rating. Merry Family cafe over the road was for breakfast and incredibly […] cheap - they have an English menu if you ask. There was also a good steak restaurant nearby called Zan Zan on Dong Si South - turn right out of hotel walk to end of street turn left and its about a block and a half up on the right hand side.

"Comfortable and convenient"
The Sunworld Hotel is comfortable, clean and conveniently located. Just off Wangfujing there are plenty of options for entertainment and eating in the area. A 20 minute walk from the Forbidden City and Tianamen Square makes sightseeing simple, and being Wangfujing, the taxi drivers are all familiar with the location, so it's straight forward to return […] after a day out and about. The hotel has a tour desk which can help book train tickets and the like. I didn't use them for any sightseeing tours as there is a booth around the corner (across the road from the church) that had competitive prices on the tours I was after. Having said that Beijing is easy to self-tour. Grab a taxi and head to the sights yourself. The Wall is the only one that really benefits from an organised tour (being out of town). The hotel itself is clean and modern. Recently renovated the rooms are comfortable and a good size. And for those who have toured the firm beds of China, the SOFT BEDS at the Sunworld will be a welcome change. Oh the bliss to once again sink into the mattress. The room service menu and restaurant cater for both Western and Chinese tastes; however, the learning is towards Chinese. There is a MacDonalds across the road if you just need a 'fries and burger' fix though, and the Haagen Dazs around the corner is a great end of day treat. My only negative is that the rooms are a bit warm and the aircon lacked. Not uncomfortable, but noticeable if you prefer a chilled room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
