Pullman Beijing South4.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I went here on March and it is still very cold in Beijing. My first impression of the room is great. It was spacious, clean, and tidy. They have heaters and it was very nice. The bathroom is huge. Bedroom is great, pillow very comfy. I love the pillows. However, during the night the heaters is not really helping. It is still very cold. The staff hotel in the lobby can speak English, but others are not very good in English. I ordered room service, and they transfer my calls three times. When the calls finally got through, they had a time to understand English. The food was average and overpriced. It is better if you go down to the restaurant yourself, rather than asked for room service. The breakfast is nice with lots of choice.
The hotel Is situated in the industrial area of Beijing. Big hall and big restaurant.. The room looks aged and it needs an urgent renewing. At the first approach looks clean then there is dust everywhere (if you are allergic big trouble) and dirtiness in all the small angle of the room. Really unacceptable for pullman brand (accor hotel group).
I have stayed here on several occasions over the past 7 years. Prices are up but quality is not improved. Lobby space and Breakfast buffet are pretty good. Rooms lack decent lighting. Overall no better than other cheaper places like nearby holiday inn express.
Didn't have much choice as the hotel is located in development zone. what can I say... Was waiting for hot water for at least 10 min (was opening the tab while doing other things), the smell in bathroom was awful (old cigarettes though it was non-smoking room), dirty. Breakfasts were OK but not more... It is extremely overpriced for the service they give - I'm writing this review from Pullman Hong Kong and I was in Pullman Guangzhou in between - so have a room to compare.... Bottom line - if you can avoid - please avoid. And yes - it was quite cold inside...
Facilities around the pool definitely needs an upgrade. It was too gloomy for comfort and the nail salons and other facilities do not reflect the 5 star hotel rating. Elevators were very slow as well. Rooms were clean and pillows were in a class in it self, good job. Internet connection could be improved for stability and speed as well. As for location its was close to my office which was great but restaurants and convenient stores is very scarce.
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
