This is a beautiful old hotel right next to the Forbidden City in Beijing. The staff and ambience are unparalleled; one of my most favorite hotels ever. Beautiful oriental rugs, Murano chandeliers, and impeccable service are the hallmarks of this lovely hotel. I will definitely return the next time I am in Beijing and I will seek out other Raffles...

The location, services, facilities are indeed very good, the size of the room is quite big that is beyond my expectation. The outlook of the Hotel is very charming and even the decor' of the hotel lobby. I'm sure I'll recommend this Hotel to my friends.

We stayed in this historic hotel for 4 nights, and we do love it. The hotel is like a part of the Palace Museum, we can see the palace in our room. Lots of famous people stayed here. This is the best old hotel to stay inside the captital city.

Although the city was particularly polluted during our stay, our entrance into this beautiful hotel was like stepping into an oasis of calm, clear air. We were upgraded to a remarkable suite... More
