In some hotels in China, things like toiletries are gratis, but here they were not (save for shampoo and soap). That said, if you need them but don't want to go out to buy them, they are there already in your room. You'd be better off buying them outside though, as prices will be cheaper.
The price we paid (500 RMB for two people for three nights) within the third ring road was phenomenal. The 3rd Ring is fairly close to everything, and it's only a few stops from the train station. If you come in at night, the location may seem shady, but in the day time it's an ordinary, quite agreeable and pleasant neighbourhood.
I'm not certain if the staff spoke much English or not, because business was done in Chinese, but they were certainly very helpful. The beds were very nice, much softer than ordinary Chinese beds in homes and par for hotels nationwide. The facilities were completely clean, and housekeeping even made sure to have my cluttered clothes put back on my sheets after they changed them.
