"Stunning property - new renovation"
Recently spent a few days at the newly renovated Peninsula Hotel in Beijing. The location is perfect, only a short walk from Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, whilst extensive shopping and dining options are right outside the front door. The renovations are still ongoing, something the hotel made clear when we made the booking, but unless you intend to spend the whole day in your hotel room, the construction noise won't be a problem. The decor is beautiful - modernised whilst maintaining the ageless classic style that all Peninsula hotels are renown for. The new lobby doesn't look like a lobby as there is no reception as such - just ample staff waiting to attend to to your needs at comfortable lounge style seating throughout the lobby area. The rooms are a masterly blend of classic opulent styling with the most advanced technologies available . Everything from lighting, curtains, TV's, communications, can all be controlled from a single tablet in each room. Modern amenities are artfully concealed throughout the room to give a clean uncluttered feel whilst providing everything you need still at your fingertips. The staff were very attentive and helpful, another Peninsula trademark throughout their properties around the world - nothing is too much trouble for them . Their help with booking tours and selecting dining options around the city was greatly appreciated and the recommendations were excellent. The lobby high tea is something not to be missed ! In all, a wonderful stay, we will return for sure.
"Most well design, thoughtful hotel "
This hotel is amazing. The minute we arrived home, the driver had picked us up to go to the hotel. He called them before we arrived and the receptionist was there to bring us in and also show us to the room immediately. Bad news - they have no nice lounge area to wait for your guests because they have turned it all into shopping real estate. The room is a suite and this is great because when my daughter was making noise - I could just tell her go the other room. There was a lot of space including an indoor closet, study room, living room, bedroom and bathroom. The space was very nice and I used every room. I think Penonsula has now become my favourite hotel. The only bad part was that the pool were under renovation and I had brought all my stuff for nothing.
"great renovation, definetly for the better"
We stayed ther for a couple of days recently. The renovation is amazing: everything looks really modern but with classic luxury at the same time. The rooms are a lot bigger, with many amenities and everything electronically controled. Service has the same quality as ever, the Peninsula quality recognizable everywhere. Two things were not as goos as expected: there was some noise due to the renovation, though it will dissapear shortly, and at reception there are too many tables set all day for lunch or dinner, which does not invite to seat for a drink or a coffee. Overall, the experience was once again excellent.
"It should better close"
Had been in the Peninsula Beijing (Wangfujing district) on 24Mar2016. It was a very bad experience when we realize that the construction work (photo attached) brought noise, and even worse smells of Thinner. The work seemed to carry on throughout the night and day, non-stop. We worry what chemical was in the smells and how it is going to affect our health. I think the lobby staff there would agree to be bad environment by having the N95 mask weared inside the hotel. Should the hotel be shut down for construction' P.S. The above comment had been sent to the hotel's corporate email months ago, but there is no response yet.
"WangFu as the most aristocratic is back !"
Being an old loyal customer of Wangfu Hotel (used to represent taste and luxury in Beijing the name of Wangfu; now bought by Peninsula Hotel, under refurbishing, with smallest room over 65 square meter), I was invited to dine at their newly opened(re-furnished in everything!) Jing Restaurant on the 17th of September, it was so brilliant that I went back with a good friend on the 19th Sept., and back again on the 21st! (Have made booking for their private room for a party of 9 tomorrow- the 27th of Sept. as well)- the environment is perfect, with modern chic furnishings adding oriental touch; the ambience so cozy with the best trained staff, and matching cutlery with plates, with wallpaper and table cloth...but most of all, the food!!! Presentation perfect,tastes so delicious at such 'value for money ' price! Try their Australian beef(one portion can serve two big eaters); their Iberia pork(organic , grew under oak tree in Spain) which can be cooked to your liking (tender, medium or well cooked- have you ever got this experience with pork'), and their caviar!!- sort of life experience! & of course their dessert trolley is absolutely irresistible too!

Please note the hotel will be totally refurbished from April 2015 to late 2016. The enhancement will be split into two distinct phases to ensure that disturbance is kept to an absolute minimum. During the renovation, certain floors and restaurant outlets will be closed, but the hotel and the shopping Arcade will remain open for business as usual throughout this period.
