  • Kerry Centre Hotel

    by

    Having lived in Beijing for a number of years, I had stayed in relatively few hotels in the city - usually only when late night events prevented my getting home.
    I have known the public areas of the Kerry Centre for almost 5 years now and have always liked their restaurants and facilities, and so was pleased to be booked in there for this trip.

    The rooms live up to the standards and expectations set by the public areas. The rooms are just great - sparklingly fresh and clean and comfort. Too many hotels put too much naff opulence into their decoration and facilities, but the Kerry Centre is simply classy. It's luxurious without ever having to make anything obviously luxurious.

    Great rooms, great service, great location, great facilities. You pay a high price for it (anywhere between RMB1800 and 2600 per night which is very expensive for China) but quite frankly, it is fully deserved.

    Unique Quality: This is one of my very few (perhaps the only hotel I have given a "Great Experience" rating because, quite simply, it richly deserves it.

    Directions: Close to CBD on East Third Ring Road

    The Kerry centre hotel

    by

    Great location, but a bit old, e.g., furnitures are a bit worn out. Restaurants are not tasty and, like those in many other 5-star hotels, extremely overpriced.

    Luckily there is a commercial zone in the basement of adjacent Kerry center office building, where you are find better eateries.

    Directions: 3rd ring road, east, China world center

    The most dirtiest hotel i ever stayed in

    by

    yes,, i wasnt wrong with my title here..but really this is the most dirtiest hotel i ever stayed in.The carpet was so dirty, i think they didnt vacuum it and the toilet was so dirty as well even they have poor lighting inside that when you need to put make up you better be sure you put light or else when you go outside during daylight people might say they saw a vampire.the front desk staff are not customer oriented..if you come to the hotel in groups they will just hand out the keys to you and let you get it on your own plus they dont write your name on the list you have to write it yourself..i feel like they were not prepared that your group is coming and they didnt even know who you are even you are a group of six.Before going to bed, make sure the pillows and sheets are clean..i dont have a choice for checking the pillow but to smell it since the lighting of the room is so dark its like in a twilight zone, maybe its their purpose so you wont see how dirty their hotel is..anyway,back to pillow..smell the pillow if its used or not(sorry i know this is disgusting,but you have to do it rather than share pillow with a complete stranger)so before i sleep i called room service to give me another pillow,which my mistake i called them instead of housekeeping.but the thing is i called the wrong number and you know what they told me, they said"we are not the one doing that service so you call another department to help you"..my GOD i was so pissed off. is that the way to handle your customer? Anyway the only good thing here is the breakfast delivered to your room..they are organized and on time..but i hope the food is cooked well or else i will die....but do i have to complain more...this is paid and chosen by my company..and i dont have a choice..so i guess i just to bear with it.

    Unique Quality: the unique qualities i guess i have said it earlier..but my recommendation is if you have a choice..dont ever stay in this hotel.

    Sino-Swiss Hotel

    by

    The rooms are adequate, nothing special. Never made it to the pool. I spent a lot of time in the business center doing email (surprise!) and the staff there is well trained and speaks good English. The girls in the shops are so helpful and the gift shop has really different things I didn't see elsewhere. With five or more restaurants on site, there is no reason to even have to leave the hotel for food, if you are exhausted as were we. If you go in December or early January, the lobby is decorated for Christmas, complete with tree and life sized gingerbread house.

    Unique Quality: Although the rooms were ho-hum, the restaurants were superb! Our first meal in China was at the Chinese restaurant, Chopsticks. The food was exceptional, and the tea service was fun. The breakfast at the Swiss Chalet was excellent, and the dinner we had there was the only place in China where the western choices tasted the same as they would at home. We regeretted not being there longer to experience the other hotels, since Japanese food is my favorite and I have never had a Mongolian Hot Pot.

    Directions: Close to the Beijing airport

Bento & Berries

by mke1963 about Bento & Berries

Bento & Berries is a slightly oddball deli - basically a cake shop - on the ground foor of the Kerry Centre Hotel.
It opened earlier this year, and the huge glass window full of cakes is a real crowd-puller. But they're fake......yep. Every last one of them is fake, as I discovered when I went in to buy one.

While they claim to have them all in stock "at some time", you can only order what is available in the chiller under the counter inside. The evening I went, there were no full cakes left (which is what I needed), only small tarts. Hmmmmmmmm.

Anyway, the tarts were good....kiwi and custard and raspberry and custard, but it's really not the same thing.

Paper lanterns

by caris1

Hi, I'm traveling to Beijing in September and will be staying near the China National Conference Center.
Does anyone know where I could buy simple round paper lanterns for very cheap? (I know that's a bit like planning a trip to Disneyland and asking where I could buy Mickey Mouse ears, but I've never been to China before and I have no idea where to start looking or where to go for the best prices (I need around 50 or so lanterns!) Thanks in advance for any suggestions...

Re: Paper lanterns

by RaymondJung

Hi fellow traveler, I've been to Beijing several years ago and I find that any tourist spot will carry lanterns to sell. There is a wonderful famous tourist spot that houses many vendors in dated buildings that will sell lanterns of all design. You can play haggle with them and get good prices, especially if you were to buy that many! Good luck and ship them via UPS!

Re: Paper lanterns

by cafank

You will find many stores which sell lanterns. Don't buy from the department stores , they will be a lot more expensive(although they will probably be a lot cheaper there than you get at home).

Go to the local markets and ask around - you will be able to negotiate prices for 50. Your hotel will be able to direct you to local shoppibng areas and markets, but be warned that there may be little English spoken so ask someone to write out your request just in case.

Head to the silk market a short walk from the kerry center Shangri la hotel- maybe 8 minute walk,its a large collection of vendors selling mainly clothing and jewlery but also all the tourist things like lanters. Haggle hard- about 30% of starting price only.
