We visited Beijing for the first time and chose Raffles based primarily on it's location. Like what was said in previous reviews, it is right in the Vicinity of Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, and Wangfujing Shopping district. Pros: 1) To reiterate, Location is it's best aspect. 2) Staff: Wonderful that they offer to check you in while you sit down... More

Stayed in Sun Yat San Suit last year early June, very big area and nice historic books and items in display cabinet. Good layout of furnitures and lights. Comfortable bed linen and bath towels. But when you look carefully, you will notice some furniture and lights are replicas made by cheap materials, just coated with black and golden paints, not... More

This is a heritage hotel and the main hotel building must be more then 100 years old. This hotel has a great history to it which is very much visible when you enter and take a tour of this amazing property. The lobby is decorated with beautiful glassworks, chandeliers, showpieces and amazing carpets adorn the beautiful flooring of this hotel.... More

Clean, comfortable, nicely appointed hotel with a good location: few minutes walk to Tiananmen Square & Forbidden City. Close to the subway which is clean, safe & cheap. Room with "club level" privileges well worth it - includes excellent breakfast (lots of choice) & complimentary cocktails/snacks each evening. Take time to meet the "hotel ambassador", John; he's a very interesting... More

After reading other reviews of Raffles Beijing and checking out their website, I was excited to begin my recent stay at this property in Beijing. My enthusiasm was quickly deflated when I was told at checkin, after a long day of travel, that my requested room (King) was not available and that I was assigned a room in the back... More

Dear 77Zeke, Many thanks for having taken the time to write a tripadvisor review. We have been spoilt by all the positive feedback from our guests that lead you to stay at our hotel; a review of your nature is therefore even more disappointing. Allow me please to apologize for the fact that our hotel did not live up to... More

So we had lots of nostalgia for the Raffles from a trip to Singapore years ago so we decided to stay at the Raffles in Beijing. It is a good hotel but just not the flagship of the brand that the Singapore Raffles is. With that said, it was a good hotel and we would consider staying there again. The... More

We were warmly welcomed to the hotel by John, who sat us all down and told us where to go and what to see. The location is fantastic, walking distance to the main shopping district and just 30 seconds to the subway station. We had some issues in our first room, some of the lights weren't working and the wifi... More

Raffle Beijing Hotel is centrally located with respect to all the tourist sights, excellent restaurants, underground metro and shopping, whether it be at the local markets or department stores. The Raffles Ambassador, John Spooner, is definitely the greatest asset to the hotel. His knowledge, friendliness and willingness to assist in whatever area is amazing.

Recently spent 4 nights here as part of a business trip and the hotel more than lived up to the level of service and comfort you expect from a Raffles hotel. Very near the Forbidden City, night market and many other tourist destinations, but yet the hotel itself was quiet and the rooms were extremely comfortable. The staff were extremely... More

Raffles Beijing was recommended by family members who stayed there recently. The central location, beautiful interior, and comfort were the main reasons for them referring. Our expectations were exceeded throughout our 5 night stay. Particularly helpful were the Hotel Ambassador, John, and his well trained staff.
