Stayed here for three nights as part of a group tour to China. Hotel was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was mixed Eastern and European but was adequate. Like other hotels we stayed in, limited and weak wifi only in communal areas. Was fine for us and for a group, but would look for somewhere better if travelling as a couple.

Spent few nights there a few days apart, (did Great Wall trek and Xi'an extension for charity). Fabulous food, great rooms, wonderful staff, excellent service. ATM in situ. Equipment left there safely whilst on trek, easy to reclaim when needed. Rooms cleaned daily. Wonderful reception and restaurant. Great choice of food and drinks, only had breakfast, but fantastic anyway.

We have spent here our first 4 nights of our more than 2 weeks trip to China. The hotel was as expected from the picture that you can see on tripadvisor. We were with a group from a travel agency so we had the bus to take us to the city center, but wasn't so far away. The room was... More

I stayed for at this hotel for three nights after arriving from the U.S. The hotel itself is very nice and clean unfortunately the AC in my room was not working. During my last night the hotel staff switched my room and I had very good sleep. I ate at the hotel and found the food to be delicious. Overall... More

We stayed here as part of a big group after our 5 day hike on The Great Wall. It seemed luxury compared to what we had been used to over the last few days. The room was big and clean. The beds were very hard though. The food was ok, had breakfast buffet and evening meal as part of our... More

Enjoyed our few days at Rainbow Hotel as part of a group tour. While we wouldn't have chosen the hotel ourselves, it was a great location to walk to Temple of Heaven (about 20 minutes) and experience some local restaurants/nightlife.

Last year had stayed at this hotel and found very convenient and comfortable. This year two weeks back went there by booking the hotel on web portal and thought better rates. But the single occupancy rooms were big farce. Mattress on the floor. No chairs in the room, No baggage stand and even the Bathroom is dinghy. For even minor... More

Our stay was not by choice - it was part of a small group tour and we feel we would not have chosen this hotel ourselves. It is a rather dated tourist class hotel with very little appealing atmosphere, in fact a bit dingy. Our room was not as large as similar hotels we have stayed at, the bathroom lighting... More

The rainbow hotel was unfortunately a disappointment with very few positive things to say. The location of the hotel was the biggest letdown with no major sights within walking distance. The rooms were pretty tight for Beijing standards and the plumbing was very hit and miss which required running the taps for 10 minutes to get warm water. English speaking... More

Rooms where nice. Good view of Beijing out of rear window. Showers are likely to overflow and make the bathroom very wet so be careful! Breakfast was very accommodated for, however no western food. You can have wi-fi if you sit in the lobby.
