We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights. It was very expensive for what we expected to pay in China (we thought our money would go further) but it was well worth it! The location was ideal. We were a brisk walk from the closest metro stop, less than a ten minute walk from the main entrance of the Forbidden City & Tiananmen Square, and footsteps from the main shopping square & upscale mall. The hotel had many amenities including a swimming pool, fitness center, shopping & restaurants. We were on the 14th floor with an amazing view of the Forbidden City & Tiananmen Square. Every room has a balcony but they are blocked off from visitor use. The hotel is very old & historic & you can tell that it was renovated multiple times. Our room was very spacious. We had 2 full size beds, a large closet & spacious bathroom with marble tub. Décor was simple & slightly outdated, but clean. Floor was non-smoking, but the hallway smelled of smoke. I noticed visitors smoking by the elevator next to a no smoking sign! The staff was extremely friendly. They booked us great seats at a King Fu show & ordered taxis to sites & to the airport. Buffet meals were very expensive & not included in the price of the room. We ate at the hotel buffet twice. They had a good selection of traditional Chinese food as well as Western breakfast foods. They had a few made-to-order stations like Peking duck at lunchtime and omelets in the morning. Taxi drivers knew of Beijing Hotel so it was easy to communicate with them. We had a great experience here & would definitely stay again if we return to Beijing.
