"Comfortable lodging, good location"
The hotel is in a good location for shopping and sightseeing. For a hotel that aspires to be at the top of the luxury market, it's showing it's age and is in need of some renovation - worn carpet, chipped and cracked marble floors, a terrible calking job in our bathroom. Rooms are a generous size as are the bathrooms with separate tub, shower, and toilet. Beds were comfortable with nice linens. Nightly turndown service was provided. There is a large workout area and spa facilities in the changing rooms. The Regent Club is available for an extra fee. It provides breakfast, including cooked to order egg dishes, and in the evening there are hors d'oeuvres, desserts, and all drinks are complimentary. Service in the Club was great. An alternative is breakfast in the main restaurant, which offers a larger variety of food but is much more hectic than the Club. All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful and had fluency in English. Free Wi-Fi is available. When we called to say we were unable to increase the temperature in our room, we were told that there was a maximum temperature we could not exceed. This is not exactly a policy designed to keep guests comfortable.
"Very enjoyable stay at the Regent"
We stayed in a club executive room and it was a spacious and comfortable room and had a view of the forbidden city in the distance. The staff were all great,very attentive especially Elma in the club exec lounge and all spoke very good English.
"Luxury in Beijing"
My husband and I had 3 nights at the Regent, after a long holiday in Australia. We were not disappointed. We stayed in a Club Executive Room which was well worth it. This gave us access to the Regent Club, where we enjoyed breakfast, drinks and snacks during the day and from 1800 to 2000 alcoholic drinks, snacks too. Our room was beautiful, very large bed, sofa, desk, tv etc and views of Beijing. The maid service was good, twice a day. The food in the Regent Club was great too. A very wide variety available during happy hour, mussels, salmon, dumplings, cheese board, selection of sweets. Something for everyone. One of the young waitresses was especially lovely. Her name was Elma and she was so helpful and attentive to deserve a special mention. But all the staff in the hotel were very polite and helpful making the stay memorable. The hotel is very close to a Metro Station too, line 5 Dengshikou stop. So we visited the Summer Palace using the Metro. One way ticket to Beigongmen on line 4 costing 5RMB pp which is under a pound. It is then a very short walk to the North entrance of the palace. Also near to the APM shopping mall which has a wide selection of restaurants and shops.
"Location, comfort and room."
My wife, son and I spent a week in the Regent exploring Beijing and surrounds over Christmas/New Year. As there was the 3 of us it worked out cheaper and more convenient to book a suite that enabled a substantive rollaway to be put in the Living Room. The suite also gave us access to the Regent Club for breakfast, light refreshments during the day (not that we were ever there!) and cocktails and canapés at night. A great treat after a full days trekking the Wall or pounding the streets. The location is excellent directly above a subway station (see my separate review on the great Beijing subway system) which gives you easy access to nearly all the likely sights you would want to get to. Further its 2 stations away from a large restaurant strip and 3 blocks from Wangfujing Street, a very popular shopping area. But the real highlight of the Regent was the most wonderful Concierge I have ever met!. Yina Wang, Chief Concierge, is the most knowledgeable, enthusiastic and funniest person in such a role I have ever encountered. Everything she described and pointed us to was exactly as we found it real life, She alone would be enough for me to choose the Regent when hopefully one day I will return.
"Christmas and New Year 2017 in Beijing"
Awesome Hotel, staff, rooms, amenities all perfect. Wasn't sure what to expect but it was great. Suite on the 10th floor overlooking the city. Very quiet, spacious and comfortable. I was contemplating staying at either the Park Plaza Wangfujing or the Regent. The Park Plaza sits right behind the Regent and I am sure it is a fine hotel but I am glad I chose the Regent. Staff were super friendly, helpful and accommodating. I think the level of this hotel in the states would have cost me an arm and a leg which I would not be able to afford. This hotel was extremely affordable and I would consider it Luxury.
