The Mercure Beijing Downtown is a great place to stay. Although out of the way from the city centre, it’s within walking distance to shops and the subway. We felt outside the hustle and bustle which was a little disappointing, but it did give us space to unwind. There’s a pool (although we went in winter so no swimming for us) and a restaurant. I recommend the breakfast buffet for value and variety, and I was able to have my Chinese delights, like congee and pork buns. Fast wifi and a good bar, this is was a home for us in Beijing.
