Tanjia Cuisine

Since 1875, it successfully combines the flavor of several cuisines and developed its own characteristics, to create a style and taste like no others. Peng Changhai, the only direct student of Tan Zhuoqing, was invited to work at the Beijing Hotel to pass on the secret recipes to the next generation chef. Since 1958, the Beijing Hotel has continued to serve nearly 300 unique high quality dishes in their original way.

Best location in Beijing

This hotel was considered the best one in China for quite a long time. Although the facility is not that new, it is quite comfortable. It is in the center of the city. I had a wonderful time staying in this hotel.

Great Getaway and Location

While the location of the hotel was excellent, the room was comfortable, what let it down were the hotel staff - mostly unhelpful, never smiling and very poor English spoken. The concierge didnt want to help or was intesrested in assisting and didnt speak English! If I ever go to Beijing again will stay in the hotel next door, the Raffles Beijing - superb staff, very friendly and better hotel.

Great location, average hotel

The hotel is very convenient (walking distance)to Tianamen Square, the Forbidden City and shopping. The hotel itself is old but relatively well kept.They were doing noisy, messy repairs to the plumbing and yet still rented out the rooms nearest to the noise. I woke up to these repairs on Sunday morning![...]
