    Some Luxury

    by

    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

    Chinese Pronounciation "Wan-Fu" Hotel

    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.

    Smack in the middle of everything

    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.

by Rezagholi about The Peninsula Palace Hotel

The Palace Hotel, now the Peninsula Palace Beijing, is exactly what one expects from a Peninsula hotel in the Far East. This should not be taken to mean that a stay at the Palace is a predictable experience, in the way that the average chain hotel experience is canned and uninspiring; rather that a visitor here may rightly expect to encounter the extremely high standard of service for which the Peninsula hotels have become known. A foolish consistency may be, as Emerson said, the hobgoblin of little minds; but the brand of consistency practiced by the Peninsula is anything but foolish.

The Palace is just a short walk from Tiananmen Square, perhaps not such an auspicious location upon its opening in 1989. But in today's Beijing, the political (if not trade) capital of this most rapidly developing of nations, a business hotel could hardly ask for a better location - the Palace is right in the center of the city, surrounded by such landmarks as the Museum of Chinese History, the Great Hall of the People, and Mao's mausoleum. The bustling Chaoyang commercial district (home to many of the foreign embassies) is just to the east, and the major shopping districts are also close at hand.

The Peninsula Palace Beijing is a five-star hotel, of course - in fact, if "five-star" simply means that all conceivable amenities are accounted for, then this may as well be a six-star hotel. Everything in the guest rooms is entirely operable from the bedside control panel, including lighting, climate control, and the television (42" plasma screens, in certain rooms). And for those who need help deciding what to wear, another panel by the front door displays outside temperature and humidity.

This Ain't the JW Shanghai...

by TripAdvisor Member Judge11

This is a solid hotel. Whether it is up there with the cream of the crop in the 5 star family of luxury/premier hotels is debatable - think the flagship Peninsula HK, the Ritz Carlton, JW Marriott and Grand Hyatt in Shanghai, the Oriental & Regent in Bangkok. I am not thinking the Peninsula Palace Beijing.

My comments are minor 1s but when the barometer of comparision is set by such outstanding properties as those noted above, they are noticeable. Staff to guest ratio was good but nothing out of the ordinary, always had to wait for cabs, the concierges seemed overwhelmed at times, construction around the building started at 7am each morning so one had no choice but to get up (& could also not take an afternoon nap), the drainage in the bathroom was like my old college dorm room. Again, nothing severe but chinks in the armour of any 5 star contender.

Huang Ting / Chinese rest. was excellent - both quality & value wise. Conversation-interrupting Peking duck. I have to stop thinking about the duck now... I also went to the famous Peking duck rest. on the busy street behind T. Sq / Mao's maus. that every guidebook &/or mag/newspaper articles mentions (I think opened since the late 1800s). It's ok. But so is a Toyota Camry & if i can pay the same price I'd rather have the Lexus. You pay the same amount but the quality of the duck & the service cannot be compared without tempting ridicule from little children. Zing, the other rest., is where breakfast is served - as the other reviews on this site note, excellent. Lots of choice - from western food to dim sum. Gets busy in the rush hour morning traffic though (seems to be a lot of tour groups at this hotel). However, the rest. is also highly rated for it's dinners (Conde Nast ranked i think) - my sis tried it out for dinner but she has yet to give me the thumbs up or down.

Conclusion: if you can get a decent rate, go for it. Otherwise, you may want to check out the Hyatt (connected to the Oriental Plaza - great food court here!)
