This is one of those times when it'd be nice to have a half star option. In my view, this hotel's not quite 4 stars but better than 3. That said ... the room was large and pleasant enough, but felt a little tired, and the mattress firmer than it needed to be. Most of the staff were very good, but one in particular seemed off-hand/unhelpful. Still, it feels like a large hotel & not everyone is going to be fabulous all the time. The best thing was breakfast on the 2nd floor. Nice space, good selection, obliging staff. Overall, then, no complaints, and you won't regret staying here.
We stayed here for 4 nights. Our room was big and comfortable although it was located near the busy main road so it was a bit too noisy at times at night as I think there wasn't double glazing on windows. The room was a bit dated but still comfortable. The bathroom was quite big and had lots of marble and big shower. We didn't know this hotel had a pool. Wifi wasn't good but we found that in all hotels in China. The staff here were good and some spoke very good English. The security staff were ok but a little over the top in checking us out. The location of this hotel is fantastic, very close to Tiananmen Square, Forbidden city and a metro. Lots to see by just walking around from here. Breakfast was pretty good but could of been better. We had the buffet dinner here one night and it was very expensive and not very good. The seafood was very bland and tasteless. The quality of the food wasn't great and the choices weren't great. Im not a fussy eater but this wasn't worth the money we paid. We had dinner the next night off the menu and once again the food wasn't great. The creamy chicken pasta dish had hardly any chicken in it and was loaded with a lot of cream. Staff were friendly but service quite slow. If the food was better here for both breakfast and dinner I would of rated this hotel higher. Its shame because its a good hotel location wise.
This hotel has been an amazing experience with the gym, spa , pool and the look over some of the city. This hotel is located in the middle of Beijing where all things are located some walking distance or public transport close by. The people are nice and helpful for what fits your needs Thankyou Beijing
We picked this place for the location- and it was great - easy access to Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, and Wangfujing shopping district. You can tell this was old-school elegant - a control box on both headboards controlled all the lights and the air-conditioning (which didn't work well BTW) We wanted to try the restaurant but it was very expensive comparatively to every place else in China - and unfortunately there really aren't restaurants close except at Wangfujing and ever there it seemed like you needed to go into the malls to eat.
It's located just next to the forbidden city and Tianmian Square. Subway station just 5 minutes walk. The Hotel itself is very nice and comfortable, the room is huge and so is the bathroom. It is very dated but also very well kept so it gave us the feeling of a trip to the past in a luxurious hotel of the sixties. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone going to Beijing!
A little bit old but I love the traditional Chinese design of the hotel. And it’s near the tiananmen. Walk there only cost five minutes. Remember to bring your ID card or passport. Police have to check yours before you enter into that area.
The room was a good size but tired. The shower leaked and had beed doing so for some time. The air-conditioning was not good and as the room got afternoon sun, it was very hot. They could fix it - I would not stay again.
Probably the closest 5 star hotel to the forbidden city and Tiananmen Square. It's been here for decades and the wedding hall I went to was very nice. Everything standard for a 5 star hotel. I recommend this place for any visitor who want the approximaty to the forbidden city and who can afford (price is reasonable unless some days in the high seasons)
The staff, the room and the location were all excellent. I needed an adapter for my phone and a staff member brought up a power strip which was so appreciated because in an electronic world more than my phone needed to be charged. The check in process went seamless and as an English speaking staff greeted us. The pool is gorgeous and very big, the gym has all you need for a good workout. I would stay here again. Walking distance to the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. Steps from the train system. Easy to get to from the airport with one train transfer.
While the location is second to none, the Grand Hotel Beijing has seen better days. You can tell this was an amazing place 20 years ago but they have not upgraded the rooms in a long time. That said, the staff was quite responsive and the views of the Forbidden City are pretty cool.
