"Nice classic hotel with limited services"
The location of this hotel is excellent. It is just around the corner of the shopping street Wangfujing, therefore, it is easy to find restaurants. The check in and check out process were efficient and friendly. The room is spacious with comfortable beds and good bathroom facilities. The room is not clean. It seems that the carpet has not been vacuumed in a long time. The entrances on the other sides of the hotel were all closed. When the taxi dropped us on the back street, because there was too much traffic to come to the front, we had to walk a long way to get into our hotel.
"Excellent experience "
What a great City! What an experience! Special thanks to Hotel staff and especially hostess Annais and Gerrit the general manager. Rooms in front hotel are super spacious and luxurious. After all it’s a former Raffles hotel, 100 years old. Chairman Mao Zedong was dancing on the same original dance floor!
"Great staff and locations"
This is really a nice hotel with staff that are incredibly well trained and demonstrate a desire to do a great job. Traveling with 8 adults and a baby made it so we had a few special requests, which the staff went out of their way to help with. There were a couple things that weren't executed properly, but it's China and to be expected. Overall, the facility is beautiful and with a little extra care could really be remarkable. A few areas of peeling wallpaper, scuffed sink fixtures, broken luggage racks and other little things take away from the overall grandeur and history of the facility. Additionally, the AC was essentially non-existant, leaving the rooms a bit too warm at night. The lighting/AC controls were on a control box next to the bed that was strange and my family found difficult to understand at first. With that said, this was a great hotel and a great place to stay. We would definitely stay again. The breakfast was excellent and after a long day we ate dinner at the hotel two times and found the food to be good. The location is perfect, as it is right next to a subway stop and just down the block from Forbidden City/Tiananmen Square.
"Old World meets New"
Spent 3 days here on a whirlwind tour to watch NHL hockey with my son. Beautiful hotel that mixes old style with modern amenities. The staff were excellent and made our stay outstanding.They even presented my son with a complimentary cake on his birthday! Pool is huge,bigger than most community pools. It is close to Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square,shopping.Would definitely recommend!
My husband & I stayed here for two nights. Beautiful hotel & grounds. Staff very polite, professional and helpful. The room was huge! Beautiful, and spotless! The bedding so comfortable, I didn't want to get out of bed :) Location was fantastic! Walking distance to Tiananmen Square, The forbidden city, and the famous wangfujing shopping street. It was a perfect 2 nights stay after our trip from Mongolia, The only negative : Even though it is clearly stated in our reservation that Vat & service charges were included in the booking price, we were still charged separately for it.
