Novotel Beijing Peace

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. It is very well located, cose to the subway, the forbidden city and Wangfujing street. Very good buffet for breakfast.

Walking distance from the Forbidden City (~4 blocks). Plenty of shopping in the area and nearby train station. The rooms were big and clean. Wish the bathroom was more updated but it was clean with plenty of amenities. We included breakfast which is very well worth it. It has a huge selection of both western and local cuisine. Made to order soups, omelets, crepes, waffles. Yummy!

Very nice hotel, central to walk to most areas in downtown. I felt very secure. Staff goes over the top to help with any issues. Would stay again there anytime.

This was my second trip to Beijing with my family. I liked the location of the hotel as it was very close to the major attractions in town. Initially, during my check-in there was a bit of a misunderstanding with the front desk clerk named, Eileen Qin who was quite rude and could use some customer service training. I have stayed at several Novotels around the world and am used to getting excellent service. I was not aware that I had booked a standard room. The standard rooms are in a separate wing from the main hotel, very smelly, dingy, hot and tiny - kind of like a motel. I requested an upgrade to a superior room which was much better and like the Novotels I'm accustomed to. The service improved significantly after I spoke with the front desk manager.

Good, great location and friendly staff. Room was a little small amNd bed was not that comfortable.

The hotel staff was wonderful and sent a car for us when we were stranded at the airport. Gary was fantastic helping and advising us on tours and where to eat.

Very good hotel, perfect staff. No bath in the premier room was disappointing.

Great location near shopping, restaurant s and subway. Breakfast was great. The room temp was a little hot and could not adjust

This was my third stay in this hotel. The location was my main concern on this trip and I was delighted once again. Overall, this hotel is friendly and comfortable and offer a great value for its cost per night that just went up recently. Still a good bargain if you want to taste French Food " à la Chinoise"!

Nice location and economical for what you get. Close to key attractions

We were very happy at the Novotel Peace. In fact after the first 4 days we came back at the end of our stay for an extra day. The location is perfect; the breakfast is better than the Sofitel (the best in town)in Xian and it is the best feature of the Novotel. It is good value for the $$$. The staff spoke English so I am planning to use Novotel peace again next time I will go to Beijing.

The hotel is within walking distanace to Wangfujing, the central tourist and shopping location. Rooms are nicely appointed and English speaking staff are very friendly and helpful to business travelers.

I had chosen to stay at the Novotel again, this was my third stay. Primary motivations: location and English speaking staff. The walk to the forbidden city is short (25 minutes?) and may take you through a pedestrian commercial, some city parks or typical neighborhoods. I have stayed in 3 different rooms/floors. I would recommend asking staying in the main tower; the adjacent building is seemingly older; the furniture older, but the bathrooms have the new and clean look and feel. The carpet though is old. Also the tower will get a room at a floor higher up and the view can be nicer. Staff was friendly and helpful (when i did not like the double bed but smoking room) they gladly changed me into a different room (non-smoking as I asked but two single beds). I had requested non-smoking and king size bed. Not available. Would go again (in the tower).

All good, it is not the cheapest hotel I found but it is good value for money with all is needed. The room was clean and location was just perfect for sightseeing with no problems for taxi to go anywhere at any time.

The location is very convenient. Couple minutes walk to Wangfujiang street. Close to restaurants, shopping and there is a foreign bookstore. Most hotel staffs speak English well and a couple of them speak French. Breakfast is good but not much varieties. If you stay for more than a week may get abit bored of the food. The carpet is a bit dated. And there is not enough lighting in the room if you want to read. Overall it's an above average hotel for the price.

Very clean and great location. Breakfast was fantastic. Staff was okay, had a difficult time communicating. I do not speak Chinese and they did not speak English very well.

when you pay quiet more money to get executive floor and vip lounge you expect some special. but food etc. is absolutely not worth the extra money. so next i will for sure choose novotel but leave out the buisness floor.

The best feature of the hotel is its centric location - an easy walking distance to a major commercial district and a long walk to the Forbidden City, Tianaman Square.... The worst part is its staff, not friendly or helpful. Breakfast is too expensive for a pedestrian quality variety and quality. Has amenities that most short-term travelers would not use. I'd rather have a lower price than features that I won't use.

We failed a number of times to persuade taxis to take us to the hotel. Granted, we know no Chinese. But in the past, travelling in China -- including Beijing -- I have been able to show the driver the hotel's name and address (written in Chinese on card provided by the hotel or an internet printout.) The driver at the airport refused to take use there, directing us instead to a high-priced shuttle. I didn't think too much of it at the time, reasoning that it was just a money-making arrangement on their part. But then we were turned down about 4 additional times, using the little taxi card provided by the hotel. When we finally inquired of the concierge why taxis wouldn't serve us, the hotel employee speculated that it was because of the location -- within in a hutong area, something that they might have mentioned before... (She then wrote on our taxi card that it is near the Peninsula.) Someone else speculated it was because of the traffic pattern. Regardless it was a major inconvenience, as well as costly.

I've visited this hotel hotel in December and I was surprised in April that the price almost doubled for the superior room. Moreover it was absolutely unpredictable that the breakfast was not included. There was no information on the site about breakfast and was sure it was included. Other than that the hotel is great, nice location, pedestrian street is in a walking distance. Staff was also great.
