Rated 4 out of 5 by sthubbar Fun for young children
This was our first stay in an Aloft hotel. The hotel is clean and has a fun atmosphere. The breakfast buffet had enough tasty options to satisfy everyone in the family, and was a complimentary Platinum benefit.
If you are staying with young children, make sure to call ahead and ask for the "camp Aloft for kids" benefits. This was definitely the highlight of the stay. Our son had a great time playing on the air mattress in the full sized tent, a little in-room camping trip.

First of all I must apologize to the hotel!
In my survey back for the hotel I wrote that 2 were missing and that I did not know where they are. I found them and it is my fault.
Now to the review!
I enjoyed my 14 days in this hotel. The hotel looks nice but nothing extraordinary, pretty simple in all honesty.
However I must say that the staff is amazing! Every single person I have seen there was more than willing to help and always looked cheerful and happy.
The Chinese restaurant was great! (don't know about the regular breakfast area)
Only concerns I had is that the shower wasn't sealed well and that the water did not flow towards the drain. So pretty much the bathroom floor was always wet and cold. The air conditioner was extremely slow as well. it really took it about 2 hours to raise 3 degrees.
Besides that my experience was great. Nice silent location with a nice mall and local stores nearby. commute to Shanghai is quite complicated and far. Cheapest way is to get a taxi to a bus station, take the bus to a subway station and then get to shanghai. Expensive way is to simply take a taxi cost us around 160 RMB.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jackie1628 The Concept is great but management needs improvement
This is a low end hotel of this chain but I think the design and facilities are all good for this grade of hotel. However, I had bad experience at check in. I used points to exchange for room and the reception doesn't seem to be too happy to receive me as I am not generating any revenue for the hotel. The food at the restaurant is lower than average and they do not have the soup that they put out on the menu as the daily soup..... I really like the design and the concept of this hotel in lieu of the location is a bit remote for business travellers. Management definitely needs improvement.

I've never thought this hotel would beyond my expectation. The room is clean and comfortable. If there has to be something improved, I suggest the pillows. They're too high for me.

I didn't know what to expect, as this was my first stay at an Aloft property. I was very pleased with the hotel and the service. I had a wonderful time on my short stay and would return here in an instant. The upgrade to a corner suite was an unexpected reward.

All ALOFTS are about the same, this one is no different. Good Price.

Overall this hotel isn't located near anything big, so if you are going to China for sightseeing I wouldn't recommend it.
However compared to the population in China, this hotel is located in a very peaceful area without much traffic or lack of space. You can find plenty of local restaurants for really decent price.
Overall the staff was very nice and the food was pretty good, the rooms were clean and and well maintained. To top it all, this hotel is fairly cheap so if you are on a budget I would definitely recommend it, I will definitely stay there again if I will visit Beijing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brian1188 Far from BJ airport, closer to the IT parks in Haidian
Aloft was a laid back hotel, very vibrant in the staff service and facilities like hotel bar, gym and a nice cafeteria.
Guests can go to the hotel snack outlet for drinks and snack purchase.
It is located very far away from the BJ International airport and morning cabs are very tough to flag at rush hours.
