"Ideal Location for sight seeing in Beijing"
Capital hotel is a nice hotel in a very convenient location for sight seeing. Comfortable, clean, helpful staff, good food, etc. We made a good choice with this hotel for convenience. Easy-to-use subway for sight seeing is about 8 min' walk, approx 8 min' walk to Tiananmen Square, similar distance to Forbidden City, 10 min' walk to major shopping streets, 20 min' walk to Temple of Heaven, 10 min' walk to Beijing's ancient City Walls ... you get the picture. Most important, get a decent street map & subway map. Except for the Great Wall, most other sight seeing is accessible via subway & it's very cheap to use.
"Capital Hotel Beijing "
The hotel was average. Rooms tired and bathroom small. Main lounge area in foyer was closed as were some dining areas. The bar area that was open also doubled as a place for staff to eat their dinner. Decor in the bar was definitely eclectic and very quirky which I didn’t mind. It was more the service or lack there of. On checking out house keeping were sent to our room to check for marks on towels. I had left a small smudge on a hand towel and was made to pay for it as it was deemed “unable to be washed”. Another guest on our tour was also accused of ruining a towel. Staff were rude and unfriendly. Apart from the doormen. My advice - look for a different hotel.
Great hotel. Pleasure staying. Great location near to city center; wang fujing street and tianmen square. Polite staff. Large room. Perfect breakfast. Beutiful looby and near to shopping mall. Highly reccomend this hotel. Reasonable price.
We stayed at this hotel. The room was comfortable and had all the amenities. The only thing that was a bit disappointing is that the staff had very limited or no ability to speak or understand English. They would just look at you and smile and that was it. China is a beautiful country to visit but as I said before their English is non existent which is a pity.
"Large and central"
Comfortable rooms, and beautiful large courtyard garden. The upper rooms have views to the Forbidden City. You can walk to shopping areas and the Forbidden City from this hotel. Meals were OK. I do not recommend the spa - it is not up to the standard of the rest of the hotel. The hotel staff speak little English. Porters were helpful, but reception staff were not as efficient.
