Great hotel!

Location was perfect -- close to Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and Wangfujing (shopping street). John, the 'hotel ambassador" could not have been more helpful, as was Jackie. Hotel definitely earns its 5 star rating.

Island of calm

Fantastic hotel, can't beat the location, flawless service and impeccable staff. Amazing breakfast buffet, (a tad expensive but everything you could ever want to make up for the cost). I highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to see Beijing with ease. In a city so large, it was so nice to be within walking distance to almost everything you can possibly want to do.

Like a Familiar Friendly Place

The staff was always welcoming and helpful. In the sweltering summer heat and after a long day at work this was always comforting.

Exquisite - jasmine perfumes the lobby

From the moment we entered the lobby with its' smell of jasmine perfume, we were treated to outstanding service, elegent rooms and facilities, and the feeling of old world comfort. Pool was a treat on hot days, and the staff was superb. Located near many major sites (Tienanmen Square, Forbidden City, Opera House, etc.). Great way to start in China - rather than the more impersonal, generic new hotels.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

We rented a car, driver and English speaking guide for the first couple days through Beijing Xinhua Tours - very affordable and so worth it in terms of saving time and aggravation. Personalized service - went where we wanted without having to deal with cabs, language barrier, etc. If we go to Beijing again, we'd do that rather than sign up for a formal tour.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Hotel breakfast is very expensive -even for just a cup of coffee. Instead just take a short walk to the main shopping street and go to the McCafe for good coffee and muffins.
