OK. Excellent location,

The location is very near a subway station, walking distance to Tiananmen Square, convenient to many things. This is a big, famous hotel showing its age. Rooms are worn, though functional and well-equipped. Staff speak excellent English and service is good. Restaurants in the hotel are passable, expensive, and not quite worth the expense. Extra charge for internet service. I'd stay again but would rather classify the hotel as 3-3.5 star.

Stay here for the convenient location. Having the subway nearby means that you can get around easily. Taxis may not want to take you here (or elsewhere in the central area of Beijing) because of the impossible traffic. 10 minutes on subway = 45 minutes in taxi!

Early Feb. 2011 Beijing Trip

I stayed in Beijing's Capital Hotel for the entire trip. I think the hotel is in good location after all. But it would be better if it is near the subway station more. The price for this hotel is very reasonable and it is a five star hotel. Beijing's food has lots of variety to choose. I had visited so many historic sites and learned alot. Overall, I enjoyed this trip only the weather was to dry but not cold as I originaly thought.

money worth hotel

I was there for a vacation. When I got there the room we booked was full, so they free upgraded me to business room. The view for the room was good, we had a seperated bath tub n shower, which I thought was great. I enjoyed the time there.

Would not recommend

The first room would not cool down because the heat was stuck on high. Then they moved me to another room with a broken toilet. Finally got a working room on the thrird try. This hotel is average or ordinary at best. Not very clean. The toilet still had "remains" from the last person who used it. This hotel is listed as 5 stars. Someone must be getting paid off because there is no way it is a 5 star hotel. Maybe a 3 star hotel.

Club room offers are wonderful

The Capital Hotel is a 5* Chinese managed hotel, with a super location, i.e. walking distance to Tianaman Square, the Forbidden City and Wangfujing Street the main Beijing Shopping Street. We booked a Capital Club Room, which apart from an amazing view gives you access to a large Breakfast Menu (normally 128 Yuen) (approx. £12.50 each) PLUS a meal, consisting of 3 dishes, sandwiches, salads and desserts, plus a selection of cocktails, wines spirits, beer or non alcoholic drinks between 5pm and 7.30. We found this an excellent time - as you come back from your daily excursions have something to eat or just a snack, a few drinks and then set of for the evening entertainment. The clubroom staff is very friendly and helpful and the setting quite intimate, as only clubroom guests can use the clubroom lounge (on 15th floor) where the food and drinks are included between 5pm and 7,30pm. There is also free internet available 24 hours/day. The hotel has also several other restaurants, however these are not free to the clubroom guests. The "Capital Club" is the best value for money facility I have ever found in any 4/5* Hotel anywhere in the world.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Wangfujing Street is the local Pedestrian only Shopping Street, which is just 1 km away, where there is a Peking duck restaurant with the weirdest selection of duck recipes, i.e. marinated duck tongues etc. The duck is beautifully carved at your table; however don't expect anything amazing; it is after all only duck.

Outstanding service

Went to Beijing on vacation with my wife. Stayed at the hotel for 8 nights. Excellent service evrywhere at the hotel. Facilities were adequate with the exception of the air conditioning which can stand to be improved. I would stay at this hotel again

Capital Hotel

Easy location, 10 min walk to F.C, 20 yuan taxi to Silk Market, 10-15 min walk to Oriental Plaza. Worst bed I've ever been on in a hotel, when I told the front desk about it they told me they already know about the beds, best they could do was put another base comforter over it. Which never arrived! Shame really, nice hotel just in need of refurbishing and a spruce up!

Beware the packaged tour

Nice hotel, generally good staff, but one problem ruined the experience. I clearly and repeatedly asked if the somewhat expensive (350 RMB) Great Wall tour arranged by the hotel would include diversions to a Jade Factory or similar tourist trap, and was told repeatedly by hotel staff that the tour was limited to the Great Wall and Ming Tombs, and did not stop at Jade Factories or anything like that. On the basis of the hotel staff (concierge) information, I booked the tour. After the tour left the hotel and got about half way to the tombs, the guide discussed the itinerary, which included a visit to a Jade Factory, a visit to a Silk Museum, and a final visit to a Chinese Medicine facility, in addition to the advertised Great Wall and Ming Tomb stops. I complained to Hotel management that evening, clearly explaining that the concierge had misled me and their response was to have the tour guide telephone me... but it was the Hotel staff which was misleading, not the tour group!!! This lack of response made the event that much more disturbing. Terrible business practise.
