Beijing Hotel5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This hotel was considered the best one in China for quite a long time. Although the facility is not that new, it is quite comfortable. It is in the center of the city. I had a wonderful time staying in this hotel.
The rooms could get a better cleaned in a daily basis. My room will only get the bed done everyday.
The hotel is rather dated and seemed to have some deferred maintenance issues. The toilet and shower both blocked during my stay. The staff speak very limited English and I found myself using the concierge at the Raffles Hotel which is connected. Restaurants are quite expensive even for a 5* (although I would rate this as a 4*) and wine was ridiculous. $95 for a bottle that would be $10 in the US.
The hotel is very convenient (walking distance)to Tianamen Square, the Forbidden City and shopping. The hotel itself is old but relatively well kept.They were doing noisy, messy repairs to the plumbing and yet still rented out the rooms nearest to the noise. I woke up to these repairs on Sunday morning![...]
the hotel was in a good location. i had access to a mall, Starbucks, forbidden city, and many other sightseeings.
This 4+ Star hotel right in the center of everything compared favorably to a nearby 'Hyatt Grand' hotel at around 1/3rd the cost. Nothing to fault and really large rooms. Would have liked it better if Beijing handled their smog issue, but just get used to it and wear a mask on the street.
Fabulous location, easy walk to Forbidden City. Our morning Starbucks available at the mall across the street. Fabulous Beijing duck dinner just down the street. Enjoyed the pool, didn't eat at the hotel ..beyond our budget. The hotel was totally renovated 2002, so the old ambiance of 1989 was gone. We'd stay there again.
Beijing Hotel is the oldest and most famous hotel in Beijng. The location was great-short walk to Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. The subway stop was in front of the hotel and very easy to get around the city. The famous Wangfujing Shopping street was parallel to the hotel. The hotel staff spoke English. The hotel was clean and the lobby looked new. The drawback was that the rooms were tired and the carpet needed to be changed. Breakfast was very expensive, but the food was good. If you wanted to book a tour or show the hotel was expensive and I had found a tour company in Beijing that had great prices. The price of the hotel, if booked through the hotel, is over priced for what you get, but you are paying for location.I received a great deal through Orbitz.
