Some Luxury

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 17, 2005

So I had to try out the Palace hotel while I was in Beijing. I knew that I would have only the basics in Mongolia so I figured I'd splurge a bit in China. I was pleased with my stay, the room was very nice, the hotel itself is beautiful, the location is ideal and the staff are always curtious and speak english.

One thing should be noted though. I'm sure this would happen anywhere, but I was treated a lot better on my stay coming from Canada where I was clean-cut and dressed fairly nicely, than when I came back from Mongolia where I was kind of scruffy, tanned and wore slightly dirty clothes. I got a few glares from the hotel staff and guests when I was waiting in the lounge as I was checking in. Other than that I was treated very well.

Unique Quality: This hotel is all about luxury. The rooms are tastefully decorated, the room I was staying in had a 42' plasma TV mounted in the wall. The building is gorgeous and on the lower floors is where you find the most extravagant shopping boutiques in Beijing. The hotel is also conveniently located close to several attractions in Beijing.

Directions: On Wangfujing Street

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)

This photo is not actually of the hotel but of the famous posh shopping street adjacent to the hotel. The hotel is prime located, there are many international European designer shops in the hotel and the decor and service is consistent for 5-star hotel.

That said, I have to mention a few minus points:

1) The rooms (at least our room and the corridor) was either new or newly renovated as there was a slight smell of fresh paint or construction solvents.

2) But the windows DIDN'T open!!! I really felt the air was too stuffy to bear for long periods of time and had to go all the way outside to the main entrance several times in order to breathe fresh air.

My satifaction rating is hard to describe - all the luxuries were excellent, but no fresh air to breathe?

Without a doubt...the World's Best Hotel!

As part of the famous Peninsula chain, my expectations for the Palace hotel in Beijing were high but my recent stay from 4 - 9 October surpassed even those expectations. Check in was fast and efficient and the staff throughout our stay were warm, helpful and efficient. We were made to feel at home in a foreigh city. It is the people that work there and their attention to detail that makes the Palace my hotel of choice in Beijing. My partner received a birthday cake on his birthday from the Hotel... that simple gesture achieved more than any amount of advertising could. Take my advice and stay at the Palace. The location near Tiananmen/Forbidden City, the comparative room rate and the service cannot be beaten.

Unique Quality: Fantastic service with attention to detail, the very comfortable rooms, the great buffet breakfasts included in many room rates, nice big pool, walking distance to many tourist attractions and great restaurants and shopping. Without a doubt, the best hotel in China.

money not a question...?

We stayed at the Palace Hotel in Beijing. Its outstanding with everything you could want. Top notch service and food. A bit expensive but I felt it was a great value. If your a first time traveler to Beijing, its a comfortable place to call home for a few days.

Unique Quality: Beautiful rooms, full service. The concierge is very helpful. Top notch food and many very highend shops. Take to the streets for some real haggeling.
