The Capital Hotel Beijing opened in 1989 and is one of the city's older deluxe hotels. Renovation in 2006 and construction in 2007 freshened up the hotel's 589 rooms. This is a popular convention spot, attracting leisure travelers thanks to its central location near Tiananmen Square and a range of entertainment options.

Dining

The Coffee House in the lobby of Capital Hotel Beijing keeps the caffeine flowing 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Great Location Old Hotel

Nice enough for a great Tienamen Square Location, but an older property, nice area easy to get around in. The gift shop has some fairly good deals (tea sets).

Great Location for visiting the heart of Beijing

The staff was very helpful and accommodating. My wife and I spent 3 weeks in China. We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and they have some of the best English speaking staff members. The rooms are very nice and the hotel is in a great location for visiting the big tourist attractions. My only negative comment is how expensive the food in the lobby bar is. I expected it to be a bit pricey compared to the restaurants we visited in the city but the price difference was ridiculous. Other then that a great place to stay while visiting the heart of Beijing.

Good hotel, poor staff

Hotel is in a great location, close to famous city sightseeing places. Rooms are clean. However, be ready to be not understood by the hotel staff. They all say that they speak "little english", but this statement is overrated since they hardly speak any English, which gets quite annoying. If you stay in the European or western brand hotel, you will get a better chance to communicate your needs.

Superb hotel

The front desk staff were attentive and helpful to my needs during my stay. The room was clean and mattress is very comfy on Tower A , 2 free bottled water /day, but room temperature feels warm coz on every china hotel, they are in energy saver. I used the indoor pool and it was nice and clean, My room fee did not include breakfast, and I did not try their restaurant. The bellboy and the staff outside calling for taxi were excellent and professional. The hotel location is 20 min walk to Tian'anmen Sqaure/FC and 30 min walk to Wangfujing, In front of the hotel, there's a nice restaurant where local people dine. I 'd highly recommend this hotel to others and definitely would stay here again.

Book this Hotel

We stayed here for 9 nights , and we wern't dissapointed in the slightest, the Hotel is Massive, with shops and escalators inside, two big towers and 4/5 resteraunts. If you can try and get a room in the A Tower and as high up as possible 9th floor at least and you get great views over Tianaman Square, which is about 10 mins walk from the Hotel. most of the main attractions are within walking distance, but be warned if you go in summer the heat is sometimes quite unbearable with temps in excess of 38 degrees, and even at night 28 degress, it's like a wall of heat that hits you as you walk out iof the air conditioned shops and hotels. A final word of caution, be prepared for the taxi drivers tjhat dont speeak any English and some cannot read even chinese, (it's not like a london cabbie knowing where every hotel is) some really struggle, however Taxi's are very very cheap a 1hr journey from the Airport to this Hotel costs about £12. In summery I would definatly stay here again
