The Raffles is a beautiful old hotel from the turn of the century. We stayed in the new section, which was a very comfortable suite. The hotel is in a fantastic location. It's a few minute walk from the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square in one direction. In the other is a modern shopping district with Hutong night markets along... More

After an early morning flight and long day at the Great Wall, I was thrilled with the warm reception I received. I received a complimentary upgrade and the room was just stunning. My only regret was that I could not stay longer!

If you want a truly luxurious experience check in at the Raffles Beijing. Stunning location, within walking distance of main shopping an tourist areas. The hotel and rooms have great charm and character. The staff are most helpful and have some great tips for a first time visitor. Take a history tour around the hotel with John, very enjoyable.

Location is good for tourism but bad for business. Traffic is very bad in Beijing, so please note that you have to stay NEAR your business meetings. The rooms are a bit disappointing, maybe because I stayed at the new block behind the old one. All in all a pretty average stay.

What a lovely way to spend a snowy afternoon in Beijing! A well priced afternoon tea served by the most polite and attentive staff in the Writers Bar. John, the Ambassador, was totally charming and made the whole experience even more wonderful by giving us the history followed by a guided tour! I'll definitely be back!

Great location near Forbidden City and main shopping district. I enjoyed the historical appointments of the hotel, very friendly staff...... especially Sunny in the lobby. The room was comfortable and spacious (hot, so we had to turn the heat off). The breakfast, included with the room, was great---many western and chinese food options. I would not hesitate to stay here... More

Pros: location is very convenient to subway and high end shopping of Wangfujing. Hotel lobby, rooms and staff are good to very good. Cons: beds are rock hard, room temp was hot the whole time and could not be cooled via AC. Price was a little high for the lack of comfort, but understandable for the location.
