Raffles Beijing is a beautiful, well located hotel. Close to many major attractions and the subway the hotel is a welcome retreat from the summer heat. Rooms are oversized and well appointed, staff helpful and courteous and the Executive Club lounge was a welcome addition to our stay. I can thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone planning a trip to... More

Stayed here this week with my husband. As we walked in the door we were warmly welcomed by John the Ambassador, who greeted us by name (never met him before). Being a fellow Aussie it was very welcome after spending a week in Beijing where many don't speak English. He was exceptionally helpful in guiding us through Beijing and its... More

John, the Ambassador at Raffles Beijing was very helpful in guiding us through the options of things to do in Beijing. Being English spoken helped a lot. Rooms very comfortable. Service & Food was great.

This hotel oozes glamour and sophistication. The wonderful gentry ways apply here and everyone treats you like a star, no matter who you are or where you have come from.

The hotel is a good solid five star hotel. The staff are friendly and very efficient. When the room I had booked was not available at check-in, the staff upgraded me to a better room. The rooms are clean and comfortable, just as you would expect from this class of hotel. It doesn't have the facilities of some of the... More

A nice and detailed antique hotel with mordern facilities. Dont miss the afternoon tea in the Writer's bar if you need a decent environment with good atmosphere, food and service. They called a taxi for me and monitored the situation by walkie talkie, even I was checking my bill in the bar. They provided outstanding overall services.

Excellent location and very comfortable. The breakfast is first class and the staff very professional. The ambassador John goes out of his way to meet you and make you feel like family. Not super modern but a great place to stay. Fantastic location near all attractions and a pedestrian walking street.

It was fantastic to arrive and be sat down by the Raffles Ambassador John. He handled all of the checkin procedure for me while I relaxed in a lounge chair.

Reflecting Oriental refinement and French élan, Raffles Beijing Hotel epitomises refinement and exclusivity. Established in the early 1900s, this luxury Beijing hotel was then proclaimed as “the only deluxe hotel in the Far East”.

Personality Suites pay homage to luminaries from the hotel’s fabled history while Raffles Inc Business Rooms cater to business travellers on the move.Indulge in gastronomic delights at this Beijing hotel. Innovative French cuisine takes centrestage at the elegant Jaan Restaurant which recalls the glamour of the 1920s with glittering chandeliers and its original timber dance floor.The vibrant East 33 meanwhile offers international fare and the popular weekend Seafood Extravaganza.Ideally situated at the crossroads of famous Chang An Avenue and the district of Wangfujing, Raffles Beijing Hotel lies in the heart of the prestigious business and commercial districts, a few minutes from historical attractions such as the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Temple of Heaven, the Silk Market, and modern marvels such as the ‘Water Cube’ National Swimming Centre and ‘Bird’s Nest’ Olympic Stadium which captured the world’s imagination during the Summer Olympics of 2008. ... more   less
