Hotel with a long Tradition

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 31, 2009

This hotel is the famous Beijing Hotel, the oldest hotel, which was allowed to take foreign guests. Is was completed in 1915. In 1974 the 9 story building was the highest in Beijing. Since 2006 it is a five star-hotel of the Raffles Group.

I know this hotel since 1988, when it was the only place, where a foreigner could get a taxi and a decent coffee. I have never stayed in it. But I visited often, because in former times beside the coffee there was a nice toilet, a post and a bank and it was warm and comfortable in times, when Beijing had no McDonalds, no shopping malls and other amenities.

Unique Quality: All 876 guest rooms include an executive floor with large space and deluxe facilities. Guest rooms overlook the Forbidden City. Many famous people have been guests in Beijing Hotel.

The Banquet Hall, with a seating capacity of a thousand people, is a great place with the charme of old times.

Directions: 5 Minutes from Forbidden City

wonderfull hotel with different styles. in one part you can find the "Golden Hall" where Mao often talks to his party! the other parts are more modern, but very luxury.

From some rooms you have a nice overview over the Forbidden City and the Tian An Men Square!

I was on a conference there and can´t tell you something about the prices!

Directions: on a big avenue with all the international hotels. right behind the Hotel is a very big shopping street! an in front of the hotel is a metro-station, from where you can ride through the whole city! just perfect!

Historic, But Expensive

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 7, 2005

The original seven-story middle section (then known as Peking Hotel) was built in 1917; additions were made in 1954 and 1974 and the two oldest sections were combined in 1999. An extensive remodeling followed erasing much of the charm of the old hotel. The ornate ballrooms are virtually the only reminder of past glory days.

This hotel is very expensive, being rated at five stars by the government but barely ranking with newer hotels elsewhere in the city. However, it's close proximity to Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City make it a popular draw for tourist groups.

Beijing's Premier Hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 30, 2004

Beijing Hotel is a hotel next to the Grand Hotel Beijing and it is owned by the Chinese Gov't (I think). This is an upper end hotel but its location in Beijing is unbeatable and you can get relatively good rates which is good value for this hotel.
The security in this hotel is top notch as many gov't officials and VIPs stay in this hotel and it is located just a stone's throw away from the Tianánmen Square and Forbidden City. It is also at the edge of the Wangfujing Shopping Street.
Rooms are large and spacious but when booking ask for the rooms with the view of the Chang'an Avenue. When visiting check if the roof terrace is open or not, if it is do go up there for a beautiful view of Beijing

Unique Quality: Great vies of Beijing at the Roof top Terrace.
The rooms are large, clean and very comfortable. The lobby is very beautiful as it was just recently renovated and the breakfast served in the hotel was one of the best during my trip to China.

Directions: Right in the centre of Beijing, 2 blocks away from the Forbidden City and Tian'anmen Square. It is the nearest hotel to the Forbidden City
