This was a great place to stay for my first stop in China. The breakfast buffet is enormous, and has both Asian and western options. It's a short walk to many of Beijing's famous sights, and the lobby has comfortable seating for groups to gather. The hotel bar is also a comfortable, quirky gathering place where you can linger as... More

It is with some sadness that I find myself writing a VERY negative report on The Capital Hotel. We have stayed there many times previously, and until now HAD considered it our first choice for Beijing visits and stopovers. But on this occasion I found the reception staff rude, unhelpful, arrogant and the duty manager extremely officious! We were allocated... More

The Capital Hotel in Beijing is not an international chain Hotel. And that is the nice thing about it. It is big and very clean. It is located very very near the forbidden city (walking distance). Rooms are clean and have all the things you need in a room. An early check in was no problem at all and that... More

I didn't like this hotel. I am an avid traveller and have stayed in all sorts, but this just felt weird to me. The hotel was incredibly dated and just had sort of a 'big brother' feel to it. There are signs in the bathroom saying not to drink the water unless you boil it. Around 6PM, a member of... More

Impressive lobby and public areas. Not a 5 star hotel as represented by tour company. Our group had much trouble with the A/C. All rooms were hot over our 3 day stay. the location is nice. A 10 minute walk to what has to be the nicest mall and center of the Chinese universe.

The Capital hotel is a great place to stay, close to some of the most important sightseeing spots such as Temple of Heaven, Forbidden City etc. The staff is friendly and speaks some english. The AC is not the best and the internet system is horribly slow.

Stayed for one night in April. Hotel was huge & impressive. Room was lovely. Only problem was the shower. The rose kept pointing out to the bathroom floor area. Room either flooded or you had to hold the rose while showering which is a pain when washing your hair! But may have been my room only? Friendly staff whom spoke... More
