"Another great trip at the Fairmont Beijing!"
This beautiful hotel is really a special place. Apple is the heart of this hotel and does such an incredible job taking care of the guests! She makes this hotel so welcoming! Chris at Cut made us one of the best meals we had on our trip! Truly a genius chef! We look forward to our next visit!
This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel and both times were great! The gold lounge concierge made the rating 5 stars. They were friendly and professional, and really accommodating. I'm definitely staying here again when I'm back.
"First Class hotel in Beijing"
Family of six stayed at the Beijing Fairmont for four nights. Excellent service and immaculate, luxurious hotel rooms. Particularly pleasing was the ability of the hotel to cater for gluten free dietary requirements with many options including pasta and pizza. The new hotel manager John Spooner went out of,his way to make us feel at home.
"Good Stay at Fairmont Beijing"
Fairmont Beijing I visited Beijing in early December 2016. I spent a week in the Fairmont Beijing, in a “twin” room (two single person beds) on floor 15. I would rate this property at 4 stars. Overall I was satisfied however, it wasn’t quite up to 5-star standards. We arrived in the evening and did have a little bit of trouble finding the place. We took a taxi and the driver didn’t know the area well and GPS wasn’t helping either. We did eventually spot it, it’s on a side road kind of behind the LG Towers. It is in the same building as the Rosewood complex. We paid about 90RMB for the taxi ride from the airport. It is located in the CBD (Central Business District) part of Beijing. We did not find there to be many “local Chinese” type shops very close by. There are many “western style” stores and restaurants. There is a McDonalds and a Dominos under a mile away. It is walking distance from a shopping area called the Silk Market, which sells high end goods. It is a quick jaunt to the subway entrance. The subway stop is Yong’anli on Line 1. Tiananmen square, Forbidden City and Wangfujing are all on Line 1 just a few stops away. You can also access all of the other subway lines and get pretty much anywhere in the city. You are able to get to the Great Wall via subway and then train but be warned that this takes at least two hours. The arrival and check-in process was somewhat quick – by China standards. They have plenty of staff to help with the baggage and pretty much everyone spoke English. The staff overall was pretty friendly. The hotel is in a pretty cool looking building and the lobby is decorated well. Our room was adequate but could have been a bit larger. The beds were Twin sized so really only room for 1 person per bed. They were pretty comfortable, certainly better than the average Chinese hotel bed, but not up to 5-star hotel standards by any means. The curtains do a pretty good job blacking out the room. The lights and curtains are controlled by a push button system which was difficult to use. The bathroom was large. There is a large tub, big enough for a man. They have a large shower, easily big enough for two people, but only one little showerhead. I think that a rainfall showerhead at a bare minimum is a must for a true 5-star hotel. The toilet is a “western style” bidet toilet. It works great, I wish we had these back in the States. The housekeeping staff does a pretty good job and was trustworthy. There is a call button for maid service so you can have the room cleaned up while you are out. The second night we received a turn down service, but didn’t get that any other night. The staff laid out a fruit bowl for us before arrival, which was nice. They replenished the very small free water bottles in the room every day. We bought a package that included breakfast. I HIGHLY RECOMMED THIS. The breakfast has lots of offerings. Fresh fruit, pastries, “western style” breakfast items, “Chinese style” breakfast items and even eggs cooked fresh to order. The bacon there is actually pretty damn good. They have coffee, hot tea and an array of juices but water was hard to find. I ended up just bringing a water bottle from the room. It’s super weird from a western standpoint but Chinese people don’t drink much/any water at meal time. The fitness center was pretty good. They keep it well staffed and clean. They provide towel and water on every machine. They also have plug in style headphones that you can use to plug into the machines and watch TV. I wish they had more equipment, especially a row machine. They do not have a dry sauna but do have a steam room. The steam room is adequate but would benefit from faster heating. The shower facilities in the men’s locker room need some serious help. They were dirty and looked possibly moldy. The bottles of soap and shampoo were dirty and the soaps were runny. No good towel or clothes hanging spots. Only one of the showers had a rainfall head and it looked too dirty to use. They did not have any showers with multiple shower heads. The facilities were definitely not up to 5-star standards. The lockers were nice and came stocked with shower shoes, towel and water bottle. Overall the hotel is pretty clean but perhaps slightly outdated. The one thing that I did notice is that the carpet in the common areas was really dirty. The room carpet was fine but some of the hallways were in dire need of a cleaning. We interacted a couple of times with a concierge named, Hugo he was very friendly and super helpful. He recommended a Szechuan style Chinese restaurant that was excellent. It was within close walking distance and was very affordable. He also arranged for a taxi to take us to the airport early in the morning. It was there on time and charged us about 100RMB for the trip. Overall, I thought this was a pretty good hotel and can certainly recommend it. We paid a great rate that included breakfast and we thought that it was an excellent value. It is however, missing those few special and finishing touches that makes a property a true 5-star property. All-in-all if you are going to Beijing and need to be in the CBD it is a great choice.
