"Nice property in perhaps the best Location "
Stayed here with a business partner in a twin room for 5 nights. The room was as expected in terms of 5 star quality with comfortable beds and plenty of room for two guys with a whole heaps of camera and computer gear. Stand out was two staff members by the name of Coolio Gavin and Luke. Always happy to talk and give great recommendations for us when it came to dining, travel tips and he also organised our private tour to the Great Wall of China at Mutianyu. If location is key, then this place is where you need to be.
"Location, location, combined with old world elegance"
We stayed there on our way to UK and again on our way back and absolutely loved the place. I think it was built in the 1930's and was a Raffles hotel and has all the charm of those days, sweeping staircases into the foyer, marble arches, large tiled foyer, chandeliers and even wooden floorboards in the rooms and I suppose because of this some may say it is dated, but the rooms are massive, all with separate bathrooms and showers and the service is phenomenal! The rooms have the English power points but have universal adaptors along with European power points and we had no problems with any appliances. The location is perfect, at the corner of Wangfujing and just a few hundred metres from Tiananmen Square. Everyone from Luke the doorman right up to the General Manager was around to greet us and even remembered us from our previous visit. The breakfast was magnificent, suiting all tastes (some of my family are Chinese), whereas I still like my cereal, bacon and eggs and toast) and there was nothing our family who occupied three rooms could find fault with. We arrived at 8 a.m. and had made prior arrangements and were granted an early morning check in (rare these days) and left on a midnight flight and were granted a late checkout. It is literally connected to a large hotel next door, and it is hard at times to say which is which, and which on walking through seems to be more "modern" but it doesn't have the same high customer rating as the NUO. No complaints whatsoever and we'll certainly be staying there again on our next visit to Beijing.
I spent 10 days in this wonderful hotel with old charm and modern facilities. From the Manager through the concierge and the receptionnists to the bellboy and the maid - all the staff were so careful and ready to assist in every way. Small touches like free upgrade, complimentary bottles of water daily, personal gift made me feel like a VIP guest. I hade a good dinner in the East33 restaurant as well with impeccable survice. Thank you so much, Mr. Thesit.
"A Place to Stay in Beijing"
I was staying in this hotel when it was still called the Raffles Hotel Beijing. This historical hotel was exceptionally gorgeous, with best location in the city centre. The room I book was splendid and spacious with all amenities you need, including the protection against haze which occasionally happens in this bustling city of Beijing. I really like the food served here, lots of varieties and delicious. Staffs were also very resourceful and attentive. Best in class.
"Good location but the rooms are need serious updates "
This is a historical hotel with excellent architectural elements and very elegant but the rooms need a serious update. Windows and doors as well as bathrooms need update. The house keeping service was excellent but the front desk staff needed additional training because check out took way too long. The location of the hotel is excellent for tourist attractions.
