"Haven from the Beijing chaotic traffic and city"
The hotel is located in a good location with roads highways that connect to the main hub easily. It's slightly east - it's however not the hotel you walk outside and go for a stroll. A good hour from the airport - traffic in Beijing is chaos, and never lets up even at 2 am. Don't plan anything without a good hour lea way. Beijing smog is very thick, add rain into the mix and it creates all sorts of logistic challenges. Beijing very cold this time of the year so good quality warm coats a must. Hotel was just a lovely gorgeous luxurious haven in from the energy outside. Warm and lovely atmosphere. Decor is gorgeous warm creams, with a lot of crystal chandeliers which add a brightness that is most welcome in the foyer and promenade where there is a vast array of shops. High end women's clothing, men's suits shirts and casual wear, Chinese arts and traditional jewellery, some Chinese trinkets and gift shop, luggage, with shoes, watches with a relaxed atmosphere as you walk through the gorgeous decor. The new renovated wing room was spacious, large desk, lounge and bed was comfortably large. In room dining choices excellent even at 2 am. The gym had good quality well maintained equipment, no shortage of machines and a seperate weights type area, steam showers were fantastic too. Take our swimmers because the indoor pool was divine and not crowded at all. The CHI spa was very relaxing, I pre booked by email before arriving at the hotel. Opens at 10.30a, and goes until late so you can get a massage or facial after a long work day. The choice on the spa was good with body, massage and facial choices. On arrival a delicious raspberry tea with the usual check in details confirmed. After consultation I change my massage choice and was very happy I did as it was fantastic. The rooms are large, with steam shower and bathroom, soft snuggy robes and well lite relaxing lighting with soothing music. The spacious room was in itself relaxing as was the privacy screens and decor. Lighting was very a very low glow which gave you a sense of peacefulness. My therapist Emily was very professional and just made me feel so relaxed. I liked the combination of facial and massage as it was a soothing quietly unhurried pace, with focus on all areas along with moisture infusing facial masks doing its work whilst the massage continued. The foyer was a welcome place for business meetings with quiet alcoves and large comfortable lounges, chairs and huge windows overlooking this beautiful garden with Chinese influenced architecture, fish ponds, willow trees and seating. The afternoon teas seemed very popular with the live harpist playing many familiar songs creating an atmosphere that was both intimate and quietly unassuming. Business was easy to carry out with a basic menu for the foyer lounge area with a "tea" bar also giving lots of choices. As I had business at the Universities this hotel is in a good location, the government buildings are also close. No matter where you stay in Beijing there must be time allowed for logistics of the congested traffic, but for us returning to a well thought out hotel in terms of space, restaurants choices in house and the haven after long days of business is why we stay. The staff are very friendly, along with the assistance we found with good quality English which made things a lot easier as our Chinese was limited at best.
"Nice place but wrong location"
The Shang is always a good place to stay but this one is juts a little too much off the beaten track with the heavy traffic to contend with. The hotel itself is great but the daunting feeling when you go out due the time it will take you to get anywhere isnt worth it
"Friendly staff and a warm welcome"
Cosy hotel near Shangdi Software Park witj daily hotel shuttle. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. Hotel rooms renovated and spacious. Various cuisine available inside hotel. Local restaurants across the road.
"Great hotel, but rather boring neighborhood"
I was here with a group of business people and we profited from the hotel's outstanding facilities. The rooms were spacious and tidy. And the different restaurants offer a great dining experience. The only downside was the location, as there is really not much interesting stuff nearby...
Shangri-la Hotel Beijing is the best hotel I like when I travel to Beijing for business. Every stay is very comfortable like a home. Especially I like its lounge very quiet with a cup of tea and enjoy the time with my friends. The people here is very nice and polite with smile always!
