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

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. Take heed of his suggeations with... More

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.

If you like old and stylish hotels - and if you didn't then you probably wouldn't go far a Raffles - then this does the trick: very friendly and helpful staff, big and agreeably old-fashioned rooms, and as close as you can get to the Forbidden City. I last stayed here in its pre-Raffles days and it's a good deal... More

This is exactly what you expect from a 5 stars hotel. I was there on a business trip, but the location was perfect for an afternoon or early evening stroll. Perfectly located near the forbidden city, 5-10 min walking distance, 3 minutes away from major shopping malls and luxury shopping streets. 4 min away from the main pedestrian street in... More

Love this gorgeous hotel, five nights in complete luxurious comfort. Pleasant staff, excellent service, the most highly polished wooden floors you will ever see. Beautiful spacious rooms and marble bathrooms. Don't forget to have a chat to John Spooner just after check in, he will give you the skinny on all things Beijing; from getting around to how to stay... More
