"Well located good hotel"
Only a few blocks from Tiananmen Square a classic hotel. Good clean rooms and bathrooms. Excellent breakfast. Only drawback is the lack of English spoken or understood by the waiters. Has an ATM and money exchange machine at the main lobby, very convenient. The B tower is being remodeled
"Well Located and Comfortable Hotel"
We stayed at the Capital for three nights and enjoyed the stay. It is well located for easy walks to Tianamen Square, New World and Glory Malls, and the Wangfujing shopping areas. When we first checked in, our room had an evident smoking odor. When we asked for another room, one clerk said it was a non-smoking room. When I said it may be but it had been smoked in, then an older clerk stepped up and was very nice about giving us a different room, although it took about half an hour to get it. The parking area is under major construction, but we did not need it. Our room included buffet breakfast. It was a very good breakfast with many Asian and Western options, however, the "Muesli" cereal was basically corn flakes, and the fruit could have had more variety, no mangos, pineapple or papaya, just watermelon, honeydew melon, banana and Asian pears. Yogurt and add ins such as raisins and walnuts were missing, but otherwise a good variety. The room and bed were clean and very comfortable. As with most Chinese accommodations, there was a warning to not drink water without boiling. There was a hot water pot to boil water or make hot drinks, and one bottle of water per person was provided gratis per day in the room. WiFi worked well in the room, but did not in the buffet area. There were aspects of a 5 star hotel, and it was nice, but not a Wow facility, therefore I give it a 4.
Capital Hotel seems to be a very popular and busy hotel located centrally. The facility showcases Chinese tradition in all its interiors and decors. Rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. Breakfast is good with lots to choose from. Wifi is very poor ( I was able to connect but could hardly browse during the 2 nights we stayed.
"Ideal for sightseeing visit to Beijing"
This a great hotel for a short sightseeing visit to Beijing - Tian'anmen Square, The Forbidden City, Quianmen restaurant streets and Wanfujing shopping street are all within a short walking distance. The hotel itself is very impressive - large bedroom and bathroom with toileteries, robe and slippers,and daily bottled water all provided; 3 restaurants on site and a very comfortable lounge bar with bar snacks; good breakfast with choice of European and Chinese foods.
I stayed here for 3 nights in Beijing. I found the hotel very nice and price was good. There currently is construction going on to add another tower to the hotel. I didn't find the noise disturbing during the night. There was some traffic noise but it didn't keep me from sleeping. Breakfast Buffet was good and had a very wide selection of items everyday. The Wifi was ok in the rooms. However, you cannot access Facebook or any Google Apps (Google Search, Google Maps, GMAIL, etc) while in China. I would suggest that you get a VPN prior to leaving and also get Google Translate and download Chinese (Traditional) language. I used it several times and it came in handy. I would stay here again.
