"Lovely Unique Hotel in Great Location"
I chose this hotel because I wanted a high-end hotel that had a little more charm than the Western-oriented hotels. It was a delightful experience. I was also able to get a good deal on my room, which made the experience even nicer. The room was beautiful with both a good view and a fabulous bathroom. The bed was quite comfortable. The breakfast buffet was vast with options for both Asians and Westerners. There were certainly a lot of staff, which is the norm for these hotels. The staff was very helpful, though their English on the whole could use a little help if they want to cater more to Westerners. I didn't have any problems; it just took a little longer. The restaurants were a bit more formal than I prefer though they had a mix of Chinese, Portuguese and French. I had room service one night and ate at the bar another, which had a full Western and Chinese menu. The laundry service was very good and surprisingly reasonably priced. Finally, the spa was delightful and gorgeous. The gym was well equipped, the pool was amazingly beautiful, and the locker room had a steam room, a sauna, a hot tub and a freezing cold tub. All were really helpful after climbing the Great Wall!
"Beautiful Hotel in Beijing"
We stayed here for 5 nights as our base for visiting Beijing. Our room was very big with two double beds, very comfortable and the sheets were good quality. We received a welcome plate of lovely homemade chocolates. The toiletries provided were high quality and the shower was large. We ate in the buffet restaurant three evenings as part of our package, the food was ok, sometimes things were not warm enough though and I would have preferred more authentic chinese options. The breakfasts however were very good with loads of choice. Easy walk to the pedestrian shopping street and about 20 min walk to the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square.
"The Legendale Hotel Beijing"
What a great " Experience at the Legendale Hotel Beijing" It is one of my best experience in any hotels in Beijing. The people se extremely friendly helpful and there is no wish to be kept open. Had my event at the hotel at the Petrus French restaurant . Setting, food and dedication of the team was outstanding ! I strongly suggest to use the club floor, great views, well set and a good selection of food and beverages. The rooms are beautiful set , stayed in 1301, sleeping, set up amenities top selection. The hotel has a very strong connection to European architecture and located in a great location. Some talents to be mentioned, Tracy, Will and and May and the person in charge for our business event ! Right beside the hotel you will have the opportunity to visit the Hong Kong Jokey club, close to the key tourist areas great hall of people .... I will be back and enjoy again and again the beautiful experience at the Legendale Hotel, Arno NM
Built for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing in a very impressive style that someone described as gaudy but I thought it was jus excellent. You are greeted by polite staff every time you arrive and its as if you are arriving in an opulent hotel in a style of years gone by. We were on the 3rd floor in a room that was spacious and decorated wonderfully. The cleanliness throughout our stay was noticeable and the food was excellent. Like most hotels these places are only as good as the staff and they were wonderful catering for many languages with many English speakers. Special mentions must go to Sandra on travel who helped us out with everything outside the hotel and Chiara who went out of her way to make our stay special. Hotel is in walking distance of major attractions such as Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City Imperial palace but be prepared for queues at these areas.
I was disappointed with this hotel. I've read a lot of good reviews, but it was nothing like it. It is a big hotel, but very poorly managed. Everything inside looked chic, but was very old, dirty and looked cheap. The furniture, the carpet in the room was stained and dirty, i didn't even want to touch anything. Also everything was broken: the clock on the sidetable, the weight scales under the sink, the shower. The breakfast was not good. The only thing that was excellent in this hotel is the service. Will not stay here again.
