The Raffles Hotel in Beijing is an interesting hotel with lots of history much of it documented in the Writer's Bar. Many luminaries have stayed here and it is recorded in pictures throughout the hotel. The service is prompt and friendly and the staff is attentive. This is a wonderful hotel from which to conduct business. Its location is ideal... More

Very nice Hotel . Stayed for 4 days during Xmas Holidays . The hotel is very central close to the Forbidden city and Tienanmen Square , also close to the big shopping malls. Big , comfortable rooms and bathrooms - however some restoration is needed. Superb breakfast. Nice and polite staff. We will definitely go back again .

I have never thought of a hotel as more than a place to sleep on vacation. My experience at Raffles Beijing Hotel changed that mindset. I came to China to celebrate the holidays with my son who is living in China... To say I was nervous about travel in China is a huge understatement... Like many who come to China,... More

Just checked out from the hotel yesterday after staying five nights in Beijing! As expected, it's a classic five stars except the following brought little disappointment to us: 1. Bath robes - the material is very thin and the robes were old and worn out, looking like they have been wore for thousand times 2. The lobby area was dark... More

Well kept, clean and comfortable room. Excellent service. Staff very helpful. Also the hotel is ideally located close to businesses. (Also close to shopping area and some tourist sights). Cost of food was somewhat high.
