Thank god I only stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The rooms were decorated nicely but the bed was a boxspring with a sheet over it. The bathrooms were old and dirty. The hotel is in a terrible location for any walking you'd want to do. The staff is TERRIBLE. I had never encountered such rude front desk people... More

Our room was on the front -floor 11, we had a good clear view across Temple of Heaven park which Was a few streets away and... More

If you've traveled much in China, you know hotels are everywhere. Some horrible, some decent, some luxurious. Rainbow is pretty great for the price and location. It's about a 15 minute walk from Qianmen (at the southern "edge" of Tiananmen) and in a nice quiet street that has a park and hospital nearby. You're likely here on a tour, I... More

This hotel does the job, it's in a good position with a people's park up the road. The rooms are spacious, there not the most beautiful of rooms but it does the job. Shower works well, there's an anti-slip mat provided, It even has a box of very odd objects by the bathroom sink which it informs you are "Not... More

We stayed here in December 2014 and again in January 2015 as part of a tour, we were very underwhelmed. The first room we were taken to had one bed, we were moved to another and the toilet was broken then we were moved again to a new room which absolutely stank, its China so we expected people smoking inside...

I was part of a tour group that was booked in here. Our guide took care of the checking in, but I did notice that when asked anything the desk staff had limited English. The foyer is very nice and looked pretty impressive. The man on the gate out the front was friendly and cheerful. There is a small shop... More

This hotel is sadly in need of a facelift. The foyer is large and grand but nothing follows on from this. From the moment you walk in the staff are very unfriendly (apart from anyone who is allocated to open the door). We were travelling with a tour company who booked this hotel and our group had 3 rooms on... More

The Rainbow Hotel itself is nice enough, the beds are a bit firm (as they are in most of Asia), rooms were very clean, hotel was quite nice and the breakfast was great but the service was horrible! All of the staff were extremely rude, I waited at the counter for over 10 mins on day with 4 staff on,... More
