Y2K used to be in every headline across the world before when the clock was ticking from 1999 to 2000. If you were born in the same era like me, you will realize that many were unprepared for this as this event only happens once in every millennium.
Millennium is a period of time equal to one thousand years. It does not happens everyday and if you miss it this time, you have to wait for your great great great grandsons to experience it again.
I considered myself lucky as I got to experience it twice at my age now (please note that I am still 18 this year). The first time was during Y2K of course. I remember I was doing “big business” in toilet at that time:p Do you believe it?
What about the second time? I spent almost a week in Grand Millennium Hotel Beijing. So, that is the second time? Oh yea! It is an international standard hotel that worth to pay for a visit.
Staying on 18 (surely rich in Chinese) floor makes me feel slightly richer for the whole duration. Despite a long walk to my room, it traded nicely with a nice contemporary room. The room layout is rather simple but elegant.
On top of that, the latest interior design makes me feel like wanting to stay there longer. By paying reasonable price, you get a comfy king size bed like in any hotel and classy work desk that really perfect for both business and leisure.
Did I mention leisure? Oh yea.. I am here mainly to play bubble bath in the bath tub. Categorically, the washroom is almost half the size of the room. So you can run around naked in your own private corner.
Remember to keep your window blind close before you do all those act. This is to avoid someone posts your uncivilized behavior in youTube
If you are a gadget freak, I bet you will stick to the tv most of the time. The room comes with high-tech built in tv that you can surf net, email, watch inhouse entertainment, play games etc.
Not only that, even the room phone is kind cool. The room also equipped with safety measures such as safe box and breathing mask.. just in case..
Beside complimentary foot wares, all your bubble bath liquid is provided with no extra charge. Not all things are free here. If you accidently drink from the Evian bottle, they will charge CNY 78 (~RM 39) per bottle.
One spot that you might like in this hotel is their facilities. I cannot manage to get more photos from the indoor pool, spa and gym as it is a restricted area for photography but it is definitely worth to utilize it.
Before you know it, your stay is expired. You just have to move on but I will come back again if I happen to be in Beijing in the near future.
