Beijing Hotel5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
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
The room was clean and tidy. The beds were comfortable too. I stayed for two weeks for work. Sometimes I just needed to stay in the room to get work done, so I put 'don't disturb' on the door. They kept knocking on the door and calling to see when they could clean the room. One time I was in the shower. And once I walked back to my room at about 7pm and someone in a hotel uniform was wandering around the room (with no cleaning equipment or anything, just a random visit). It's not a good place if you're travelling alone and a woman. The receptionist staff are also exceptionally rude and they take an enormous deposit for mini-bar charges upfront even if you've already paid for the room.
We booked a 5 star hotel and got a 2 star. Rooms big but needs to be redone. Bathrooms small and shabby. Reception shocking.....a group was checking out at 06h00 with only one receptionist in attendance. No concierge service. No maps. Breakfast OK. Location fantastic. Considering what you can get for this money in China - this one is nowhere near the standard we have received for the same money.
Once you get in you can really see that this place used to be one of the most luxurious places in Beijing, but now it is becoming a bit old and not well maintained, mainly the rooms and the corridors. There is a cigarette odor everywhere and it feels old. The location is perfect, though!! Right between the Main Street and the forbidden city Good service, although many of the staff didn't speak any English
Stayed in this hotel in mid of march for 4 nights, bus stopped from the entrance at the back and as i walked into the lobby it looks grand, however, as i stepped into the room, it had a very bad smell of the carpet, but as I arrived in the midnight, all i want is just get into bed and sleep. Toilet is dirty. There's no air-conditioner in the room and they asked me to just open the window for ventilation, however theres no indication on how to open the window. So the window looked like its going to fall off from the ledge, hence I called up reception and ask them to send someone to check. The technician that came was EXTREMELY RUDE and he was so arrogant when he explain to me how the window works. The hotel breakfast was average, not much choices, the fried noodles are too salty while the other food are either too oily. The location is too difficult to call a cab and all the shops around closed after 10pm. Overall i would NOT recommend anyone to stay here.
