I apologize for the front desk team of two years ago that was unable to provide you with a two bedded room, but as it has been long time ago I am unable to find out what did really happen.

    Great Hotel”
    The location is simply excellent as its withing walking distance (about 10 minutes) to Tiananmen & Forbidden City. At the back end of the hotel about 5 minutes walk, there is Wangfujing walking street & food market which offers so many varieties of food. The 2 famous restaurants for Peking Duck (Quanjude & DaDong is also within 5 to 10 minutes walk. The hotel itself is part of 3 grand hotels with so much history & beautifully decorated. The room is like a suite with separate living & sleeping area. Shower water pressure is good & the aircond is cold. The front desk staff can speak English & are willing to recommend tour packages at various price levels. Truly an excellent hotel & I would readily stay there again for my next visit to Beijing.

    A memorable stay at a very good hotel ”
    This hotel is full of history,. It is one of the most prestigious hotels in Beijing. Nixon, Ho Chi Minh, the Olympic Committee, they all stayed in this complex in which NUO has two wings. The location is excellent and the staff is very helpful and well trained, going the extra mile to please the guests in decent English. Special thanks to S. :-) The old wing from 1917 has better views but there were some Wi-Fi issues. The new wing which is right behind the old one is obviously more modern. All in all it was a wonderful stay and I would recommend this hotel to friends and business partners.

    I stayed several times at this hotel the last years , always booked executive suite which includes a fantastic breakfast as well as access to executive lounge , if you come first time to Beijing you can schedule a pickup at the airport through the hotel, someone will wait for you at the gate , walks you through immigration and custom to luggage claim and in a few minutes you sit in a nice clean Audi A6 on your way to the hotel, the staff is very attentive and friendly , as a frequent guest it feels like coming home , hotel needs some repair and modifications but overall it is my favorite hotel in Beijing, great value fir your money , I will be back again

    Great location ”
    Great hotel. Previously raffles. 5* luxury in its day. Still 5*, but frayed around the edges, but we where very happy with the hotel, for the price we paid. Big room with large bathroom, separate sitting area. Pool needs upgrade. But drab. Bar Area & staff where fantastic. Receptionist was great, very good rate on money exchange. We did not eat here or use club lounge. But location is great for eating. Only complaint, was when we where leaving, we asked receptionist to order us a taxi for a later departure. They stored our bags. All great. We arrived 1/2 hr early, and decided to beat the traffic. So the concierge , arranged the ‘Taxi’ we where very specific. Car arrived shortly after. That was not a taxi. I questioned the Concierge, and asked about the metre. He reassured me, it was a taxi. Nice surprise when we arrived at airport & where charged double what we paid in reverse journey. Very disappointed. Last impression?? Besides that, definitely stay here. Also metro right outside.

    The hotel is new and of good quality. Excellent service standards and wonderful room! We were upgraded to a suite. The only down side is the hotel doesn't have a prominent Chinese name, thus many taxi drivers and locals are not aware of its existence. However, Raffles Beijing Hotel will definitely be my first choice whenever I visit Beijing!

    Quintessentially Raffles! Dripping with colonial class and old world charm. Rooms are a generous size, really enjoyed the expansive balcony that overlooks the main road with views of Tiananmen Sqaure to the right. Staff are attentive and eager to help. Location is unbeatable! Nestled between trendy Wangfujing and Tiananmen Square! My only gripe would be, it would be nice if there were better quality of inroom amenities. There was a lack of basics like coffee and razors. But overall still a wonderful experience!! If you like hotels steeped in history and with a storied past, The Raffles, Beijing will be right up your alley!

    The hotel was lovely and convenient located for access to the subway and major sights. The nearby area is gritty and lacks charm but is an interesting contrast to the more tourist-friendly hutong neighborhoods and of course can't be beat for proximity to Tian'anmen and Forbidden City. The staff was extremely helpful and kindly gave a room upgrade for my midweek stay. The afternoon tea was particularly nice.

    If I were in Beijing as a tourist, I would stay here for sure! Huge rooms, great location near shopping, dining, etc...But when I am in Beijing I am working and there are 2 things that bother me about this hotel. The internet is so slow and often drops the connection. It's annoying. And it takes 20 minutes to get a taxi. I don't understand why it takes so long to get a taxi. However, I will continue to stay here if the rates are good because the location is awesome.

    The room was fabulous, although there were a few minor details that should have been attended to. The battery for the safe needed to be replaced, the shower head was faulty. It sprayed everywhere & flooded the bathroom every time I showered. But the staff were very helpful, using their own handphones to call cabs for me in the morning. I was in Beijing for business, but I'd stay here again with my family.

    location, fitness center, staff performane
    I was in Beijing for business, therefore, I required many taxis during my stay (to go to various business meetings). The staff informed me that it was very difficult to get a taxi off the street, so I needed to book them at least 30 minutes in advance. So, every day I called down to concierge and they booked the taxi for me. Therefore, I was never late for my business meetings in Beijing! They also kindly printed maps directly to the location I needed to go, so the taxi driver would know exactly where to go. My TIP FOR THE HOTEL: Please redesign your business card with larger font/clearer directions back to the hotel. Although I used the business card to return, the drivers were always a bit confused about exactly which hotel I wanted to go to.
