Beijing Hotel

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The best feature of this hotel is that rooms are really big. However, balcony door is locked so you cannot going outside, furniture looks to be really old, A/C cannot be controlled from the room. Bath amenities are good and enough. The room offered a little fridge, three free bottle of water every day, safe box and umbrella. Cable channel is not a good feature of this hotel and the smell of the corridor's carpet made me hate this hotel.

Hotel was located central to forbidden city. The rooms were a bit outdated although clean. The breakfast buffet was expensive. The hotel’s restaurants were ok but not great. I had one major issue. I had ordered two taxis to take us to the train station. I placed my order with the concierge at 10 in the morning for 2pm pickup. When two taxi arrived...the concierge allowed another hotel guest to take one of our taxis. We had to pay the other taxi extra to wait for a third taxi to come. They also forced us to pay for the extra time upon exiting. The service here was not good.

The hotel is conveniently located in the heart of Beijing and it's adjacent to major attractions such as Tiananmen Square, however there are significantly setbacks for this property in comparison to other major international luxury hotel brands. Note the property also remains to be a state-owned hotel, hence it hasn't adopted all of the recent technologies and amenities in today's hospitality industry. The room we stayed in had a strange odour the entire time and all of the furnishings felt extremely outdated. Lights and the air conditioning system still need to be controlled from a main switch panel on the night table. There was also mold on carpets within the room. In regards to other amenities in the hotel, dining options on-site were fine but would need major overhauls. Meals took unnecessarily long during hours that aren't particularly busy, and service is noticeably behind when compared to similarly priced restaurants in Beijing. Overall speaking, the hotel was merely average and it seems to be more of a "5 star on the outside but 3 star on the inside" kind of property. I would personally recommend looking into other brands such as JW Marriott, St. Regis, W Hotel, and Hilton which all of them have a reputable presence in the city. I have stayed at a wide range of upscale hotels in Beijing for business reasons and this has to be one of the more disappointing experiences.

The hotel is very good, there is a problem with the personal because of language. Not many people talk in english neither in spanish but they try to help as much as they can. The área is very good to walk and enjoy the great city of Beijing.

This hotel is located near Tiananmen Square and around the corner from a pedestrian street with interesting food stalls selling everything from scorpions to grasshoppers to snakes plus more traditional foods. The rooms were comfortable and the breakfast outstanding. The decor and lobby were quite attractive and the staff friendly and helpful as well. The rooms were comfortable but our room had no A/C controls and a rather noisy minibar. The bedside lamps didn't work either. The WiFi was irregular at best, with no Google or WhatsApp or Gmail, due to government attempts to provide a Chinese alternative. There are a lot of shopping malls close by, if one needs that sort of thing. All in all a good hotel but not quite excellent.

As other people have said, this hotel is in a great location but you can see it needs an update. The proximity to Tiananmen Square is great and there was also a large "food court" in a nearby shopping complex. We were in a school tour group and access for our bus was non-existent. Our driver had to move barricades to park in a safe place for us to get on and off our bus. (Kudos to our bus driver!) The best thing about our room was the shower - easy adjustment and strong pressure. The room was comfortable but USB plugs to aid our charging needs would be something that could be installed. Breakfast was quite good with a range of Chinese and western food.

Very conviniently located next to the famous Tiananmen Square and very close to very large shopping malls, where you can find everything you want, the Beijing Hotel has obviously a lot of character. The large banquet hall where I attended fashion shows is impressive in its sizes and proportions. Breakfast is varied and served in a very bright room. The rooms are spacious but deserve to be refreshed;

We stayed here for one night on our way out of the country, after visiting another city. On the positive side, the location is very near Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven, and other sites. The breakfast was good and the lobby area is magnificent. On the not so positive side, the rooms are tired. Our shower had a bath mat with obvious ugly black stains that made us nervous to stand on it (mold? mildew? bacteria?). The staff was not friendly and avoided greetings or even eye contact, unlike our experience elsewhere in China.

The good thing about this hotel is its location, near key sites and with good local food and affordable shopping a stone's throw away. The building is also rich in history and has a magnificent banquet hall. The problem however lies in the rooms which seem to be in a time warp and seen better days. The furniture looked tired and the decor was dated. Chinese tea in the room though complimentary tasted terrible. I think a renovation is needed to restore this hotel to its former glory.

This hotel is very well located in the heart of the city. Quite huge, the service is not really personnalized Confortable but the rooms are a little bit old. An old generation hotel. Interesting to stay for some days
