Pullman Beijing South4.5 out of 5.0

The Pullman Beijing South is some 16 miles south of downtown Beijing but there is a subway station less than 10 minutes walk away from the hotel. According to internet sources it takes, without traffic, by car just over an hour to the Forbidden City and it is therefore not ideal for sightseeing but doable if you are accompanying someone on a business trip. Internet sources also show that it would take some 1.5 to 2 hours by public transportation to get to the Forbidden City. We had booked a car through the hotel to pick us up at the airport and, although it is somewhat expensive (600 yuan November 2017), it was very convenient. On arrival, a lady was waiting for us with a sign with our name on it. She greeted us and walked us a short distance over to the car where the driver loaded our luggage into the trunk and gave us a couple of bottles of water. We hit the rush hour so the ride to the hotel took about 1 hour 20 minutes. If you decide to take a taxi, please go to the official taxi rank and have the address of the hotel in Chinese characters to show to the driver since most drivers do not speak English. Also make sure that the taxi driver truly understands where you want to go and he/she switches on the meter before leaving the airport. Check-in was somewhat slow, again because it was busy, but they kindly upgraded us to a small suite. My main complaint about the suite would be that there was absolutely no place to put your clothes, that is, there was only minimum space to hang up clothes and no drawers for the rest. Sadly, the bathroom also smelled musty, there appeared to be inadequate ventilation and summers in Beijing can be very humid indeed. The wi-fi was surprisingly poor, particularly since the hotel is obviously aimed at business travelers. A safe is always welcome and the one in the room was large enough to store 2 persons electronic gadgets. Just for information, the ATM machine in the lobby did not accept our US based ATM card. There really isn’t much to see or do around the hotel, it obviously caters for visitors to the many domestic and foreign companies in the area. The easiest way to the subway is to turn right out of the hotel’s main doors, walk along the side street (along Yuncheng street) until, just after you go under the railway bridge, you reach the first traffic lights where you turn right. There is a small sign telling you to walk about 600 meters/yards to the station. We stayed only two nights so never used the subway near this hotel. We did go out for a walk to a lovely park (Boda Park) which can be found when you turn right onto the main street and continue to walk a short distance north until you see the park to your left.
Good Hotel, great location, very comfortable and clean, root and bathroom of huge dimension, international restaurant, well organised with all kind Of food, wifi available free Of charge, reception and staff english speaking.
My colleagues and I have never stayed at a Pullman hotel before and were quite surprised especially with the good food offered by real chefs. However there were very few staff members that spoke English but they’re good attitudes made up for that. There were lots of families staying here at the same time which led me to believe that it’s a family friendly place. They set up the Great Wall excursion for us and may I say that We had no problems getting there and back. I would recommend staying at this place but please bring your translators if you have specific needs.
This Hotel is located far from the city center in a newer business development area. It has all comfort needed to relax after a stress business day. I had a suite room that was quite big with fancy King Louis Style sofas, who likes it OK, other just don't look on this for some old fashion Chinese popular style. Location a bid isolated if you want to dine some where else than at the Hotel. If you have business nearby, its good. If you are on a tourist trip, there are places more attractive than the Pullman South Beijing. Anyway, good stay.
a Good Location for Business if you are heading to the Beijing Economic-Technological Development Area, Breakfast caters for all food requirements eastern and western and is of high quality, the rooms are a little tired but clean and air conditioning will struggle if very hot, very well priced for what you get
Its a good hotel to stay during business visit, to go downtown you will need to take a train where the train station is 5 min away. Or taxi which is costly as it take about 1 hour with traffic to get to town center. Train is fast and cheap but can be super crowded during peak hours, morning before 10 evening 5-7. Breakfast had a wide spread and with some local delicacies. Overall will return to this hotel
I've been staying at Pullman Beijing South many times for the past several months because of the location. This is the first time I ran into a very helpful, effective and friendly staff, Daisy. Daisy was able to help me and my colleague to re-arrange our rooms and even took care of my inquiries during her off hours (I didn't know she was off when I reached out to her). Before we knew her, I was wondering why Pullman is qualified as a 5 star hotel. Daisy totally changed my impression about Pullman. Hotel is a service business. I would like to let Pullman know having helpful and effective staff makes a huge difference to guests staying there and hope they'll hire/train more staff like Daisy. Thank you very much, Daisy.
I've stayed here on two separate occasions with exceptional service. Sadly the second stay was quite the disappointment. First the good part. The service from greeting upon check-in to help at the restaurant, to the hard working staff cleaning the room is top notch. The bad part that overrides the great elements is the fact that we had to stay overnight at another hotel in another city for 1 night for business. We let the front desk know that we would be back to stay 2 more nights upon our return the following day. The front desk was busy, but let us know not to worry when we returned that accommodations would be available. They provided a letter of confirmation that we tucked away and told to present when we returned. We returned around 2230 the following day, and the staff at the front desk told us the hotel was sold out and no rooms were available. We showed them the letter of confirmation, and they pointed to the bottom of the letter in tiny print that there's no guarantee of a room. Be careful if you're asking for a room that any confirmation letter clearly state that you will be guaranteed a room. It seems like such a strange thing to confirm in writing to provide confirmation that there's no guarantee of receiving a room as requested. The staff tried to call a few hotels and we were able to find one about a 10 min drive (30 min walk) away from our office. For the hotel management - please provide a method to honor customer requests when booking rooms at your hotel. If it will be full, then just let us know. We'll understand and go somewhere else and still be happy customers to your establishment. Keep the same policies and it's guaranteed to generate unsatisfactory experiences for your customers. Other colleagues told us about how nice the Marriott is in Central Beijing, but it's quite the commute to work. Based on this experience, the commute is not a problem and the service there is great so it will unfortunately be a difficult sell to want to return to the Pullman Beijing South.
Obviously you would not stay here if you want to visit Beijing but if you have meetings in the vicinity it is very good. The gym is great with a wide assortment of free weights and machines. The rooms are ok and the staff helpful. The breakfast buffet is well assorted and in total the place offers good value for money.
From outside you think you are arriving at a Luxus hotel, lobby also great, then you come to the room.... The room used to be new a lot of time ago, many sign signs of long use, humidity signs here and there... Not a single drawer for your clothes, just One single hook for towels... Bed was great. So if you come here for business and your only ambition is to go to bed after a long day, it's a great choice... Forget for anything else. By the way, 1 hour away from downtown with the cab. Near to train station but I didn't try.
