The Presidential Beijing is a great hotel with staff you are able to converse in English. That makes it most helpful to get information and communication. Venue is close to most Business areas and the main foyer lounge is great for informal meet and greet discussions with clients

The breakfast was what prompted my poor rating. The chef just gave us a scowl when we asked for an omelet. I am close to rating it a one star, but it is close to the metro. The food did not last but minutes when it was put out at breakfast. There was nowhere to sit and the staff was... More

, most arrogant staff we have ever encountered at a hotel. Definitely the worst hotel we have stayed at. Breakfast selection was poor, and food was rarely replaced in the executive lounge. Happy hour drinks was a good idea, but poorly executed. We always had to ask for a beer as they would never be replaced. Food was always cold.... More

We read the comments about this hotel, many were positive, some negative, but as international travelers, we were initially impressed by our experience here, but negatives quickly abounded. The room was very good in size as compared to European standard rooms (other reviews complained about room size). Soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, comp water are provided. The WiFi was upgraded recently... More

We spent 4 nights at the Presidential and had 3 rooms during our stay. The first room we had was so full of cigarette smoke that we relocated the next day. The second room they tried to give us was a "non smoking" room but on a smoking floor. Other guests were smoking in their rooms with the doors open... More

Stayed there for 2 nights and I was not really worth it.. The Internet was shabby and went on and off, meaing it was close to be useless and it actually only worked at the lobby itself. TV had 68 channels, 66 of those were chinese... Breakfast, even simple requests like Fried Egg wasn't understandeable by the "egg cook" and... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of a package tour. It is ok and quite comfortable but we had a few frustrations. Warning: THEY DO NOT HAVE HAIR DRYERS - and for me, that is a real downer because I don't like wet hair and there is nothing to dry off damp clothes etc. But they do have... More

I used this hotel as a base while attending Beijing business and conference activities. Security was noticeable, especially on the day when it was increased for an evening reception for the Bangladesh Prime Minister. My conference was in the hotel and the conference rooms met my expectations. Concierge services helped me get a taxi at a very early hour, and... More

This is a dated property going back to the rigid communist era. But, the rooms have their own kind of elegance that can not be dismissed. Rooms are large and clean. This is not a five-star hotel in my opinion. Staff was very kind. Food was terrific as we have found thoughout much of China. Cleaning is fair but is... More

I have been here twice: 2013 and 2014. I now feel I must write a review: It';s clearly a 5 star hotel, but if you are travelling for business you might want to chose another hotel. Internet connection in the room is only possible from the cable, so no chance to connect with mobile phone to wireless unless you go... More
