The entrance of this hotel is not obvious but you will find more fun after walking through the door. Its various spaces are very interesting and well designed, including most of the furniture and service desks. Other than the beautiful restaurant and bar, there's a cigar room back there which is a great place for smokers. For rooms can simply...

Spent a few days on business trip and stayed at the CHAO hotel which opened in October 2016. Rooms are great and restaurant is good. Bar area nicely arranged and live music was good as well. Lunch selection was very good as well.

Considered design and staff that are trying and generally succeeding in making a stay at CHAO a very pleasant experience. The physical product is of remarkably high quality, as are amenities, equipment, soft furnishings etc. My advice is to generally avoid hotel breakfasts at all cost, but at CHAO the a la carte breakfast is fresh, well executed and definitely...

The hotel is located at the Sanlitun area where you are accessible to the trendy hangout areas and nice restaurants. It's also handy to grab a drink around. I visited the hotel in Oct 2016 when it wasn't reopened for long after the renovation. Monocle recommended the hotel, and the interior decoration was indeed quite decent. However there was nothing...

Nice experience, new brand, large room, comfortable, quite, modern, clean, perfect location for business and pleasure. Sanlitun shopping area less than 5 minutes walking distance.

RECOMMENDED WITH RESERVATIONS: This is new property recently re-opened under the Chao name. It's in the popular Sanlitun area with dozens of good bars & restaurants only a short walk away. On the east side of Beijing, it's a reasonable ride to the airport. Subway line #10 is a solid 15 min walk from the hotel (though perhaps a bit...
