4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here four nights prior to a Crystal cruise. Lovely property but walkable only to a mall next door. Fine rooms but staff is only occasionally fluent in English. At buffet breakfast, waitress pouring coffee had no idea what lady asking for tea was saying. Six star hotel says don't drink the tap water. Food was good at buffets... More

Have been here a few times for business. Nice property, but rooms and buffet restaurant feels a bit dated. Large gym and pool. Great location in central Beijing, close to one of the ring-roads and direct access to tube station. Connected to large luxury shopping mall. Large building site just next to the hotel, but nothing that disturbed.

This is a fascinating people-watching place. The high-end trading and bartering, notebooks and laptops and spreadsheets to hand, takes place at one table after another, in between the local ladies who lunch, wealthy tourists, prosperous locals. There was just one ideology here, and it started with a 'C'. It is like an upmarket souk, great fun to ogle and wonder... More

From arrival to departure and everything in between this was a fantastic experience. I have stayed on business in 100's or 1000's of hotels world wide over the past 40 years, all I can say is that the quality of the building, the food, the rooms and most of all the staff that all went the extra 100 miles to...

The room was quite lovely, very large, comfortable and clean. The bathroom was exquisite! The lobby was beautifully decorated with flowers all throughout. There was a very nice dinner buffet upon arrival. The Peking duck was scrumptious and the desserts were wonderful!

Good locations if one like shopping as it is link to a "massive" shopping mall, where one can get easily lost.

Dear MiguelChan, thanks for your review. China World Hotel is located in a great area of Beijing, whether visiting for business or leisure. The shopping mall is one of the largest in Beijing with a wide selection of luxury brands. With a rich 25 year history, it is true that our hotel may be considered older in Beijing. However, we...

Massive chandeliers are one of the first things one encounters in the hotel, which is sumptuously decorated. The check-in was quick and efficient (I was served by a friendly woman named Lydia). The cleaning staff do a good job. The hotel is convenient to the airport (less than 1/2 drive when the traffic is not bad), and close to the... More

The China World Hotel is a very nice property in the heart of Beijing. The lobby is impressively ornate, the staff accommodating and friendly. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and well appointed. They rival any North American hotel. My only very small ding is that the carpet in our room was somewhat stained and appeared soiled. This was not in... More

This hotel was our first stop and let me tell you...it was breathtaking the minute you walk through the doors. Security was pretty tight, but I am sure it was because of the foreign dignitaries that were there. The breakfast was excellent and I really felt like royalty. The downside is that the ATM is not easily located and if... More
