China Club
Ranked #602 of 6,568 Hotels in Beijing
Reviewed 22 October 2013

My boyfriend and I stayed here during the mid-Autumn festival and the hotel and adjoining club was very quiet, but nice. The rooms are gorgeous, dark wooden room dividers, enclosed canopy bed, clawfoot bathtub and along with modcons wifi / flat screen televisions. The staff was very friendly and polite as well. We booked a room with breakfast included, which was absolutely fantastic. There was a choice between Asian and Western options. The Western breakfast came with juice, coffee, toast, eggs, cereal / yogurt.

A few things that we would advise other travellers is not to eat at the onsite restaurant, which is overpriced (one bottle of water was GBP 9!) and much better food can be found elsewhere in Beijing. Also, we were a bit disappointed with the staff on a few occasions. When we asked for a restaurant recommendation, they would only suggest the onsite restaurant and said they did not have any other suggestions. When we asked if they could please arrange for a taxi on the morning of departure they said we should just go out to the street to find one. It might have been because it was mid-Autumn festival week, but taxis were very difficult to find and would rarely stop.

The China Club is a lovely place and has a lot of potential but needs to sort out a few issues with customer service first.

Although, we had a difficult time finding this place. The whole ambience of this place was just charming. I was told that it was a emperor residence before , very well preserved Chinese courtyard, food was tasty and excellent. the service is first class. I would really like to thank Lydia of the front desk. Who went over and above her call , to arrange dinner and lunch in the room for us. She was very friendly and helpful with practical information. Made us feel welcome and had our stay wonderful. Another gem is Anthony, the manager who made breakfast conversation interesting. The place is also near the subway Xidan.which is two stops from tian an men and the forbidden city and three stops from wangfujing street and 4 stops from Chaoyang.

Room Tip: There are only 8 rooms all very nicely done.

we had hard time to find this hotel of wich we have heard a lot about, as if it was a very very special place.
there is not advertisment anywhere, even the website is very minimal.
this hotel is not for everyone. the name itself says a lot "CLUB", it is are a real hotel, but with a private club philosopy.
it's not at all a big ,sparkling,show off luxury hotel, it's a understatment sophisticated place for real conneseurs.
the location is just behind tien a men place, and the building itslef is so special.
in fact is a antik private villa of a chinese prince, only with 8 rooms.
when you are there you have the feeling to be the guest of a antik noble family.
the room are very big with sofas and a alcove bed, the bathroom are all decorated with engraved boiserie. ancient real chinese luxury with no show off.
the owner is mr tang, a hong kong fashion designer that took care of all details.the new done suites are fantastic, with hand emobrided wallpapers and private patio.
the restaurant is superbe, it seems to be into the movie
"red lanter".
the bar is perfectly 1920 style, and in the guest book you can see the picture of many celebities like sarah ferguson and tony blair.
this hotel is a special experience,simple and chic,really sophisticated.
a sincere warning: if you like classic 5 star pompous luxury, you might not appreciate this special place.
