The good: This hotel is in an incredible location--walking distance from Tiananmen Square, the night market, and Wangfujing street. The hotel is also beautiful and the concierge services are wonderful. We couldn't have gotten better recommendations from the hotel or more assistance. They truly were great. Everyone was incredibly nice. Our junior suite was beautiful and a good size. The... More

We spend 3 days in this wonderful hotel and enjoyed the very helpful advice of Mr. Spooner, the hotel Ambassador. The only thing we did't like to much was the pool which shows some signs for renovation needs. The Writers Bar is great and the food in general is top. We will come back.

Stayed at Raffles Beijing for 3 days in the Business wing, 3 days in the Landmark wing. Our room in the Business wing was #7619 very spacious and comfortable. The separation sliding door between the living and sleeping areas was broken, the shower and toilet leaked and the desk phone was also broken, which was surprising considering the overall standing...

Amazing lobby and entrance to the hotel. The room was very well appointed and large with separate living room and bedroom. Lounge was nice and staff was incredibly friendly in the lounge and made an effort to get to know people which was appreciated. I was most impressed with the dining room staff at breakfast who were quick to learn... More

We visited Beijing at the end of our 2 week trip in China. We decided to book the raffles because of its location and at 5 months pregnant we wanted a known brand of hotel. The Raffles Beijjng was by far the best hotel of our trip. Actually much better than Raffles Singapore. Beautiful room, great breakfast selection. The executive... More

I did a bit of research as we wanted somewhere well located and luxurious after returning from DPRK. This seemed to fit the bill and was competitively priced. Well, it was so much more! Location - brilliant. Staff - briliant (particularly John Spooner and Vicky). Room - fantastic (we were upgraded, but even so...). Restaurant recommendations - perfect. Local knowledge... More

Raffles is a world class hotel with excellent staff, located near the centre of Beijing. Highly recommended, with helpful and efficient staff. It also has a long and interesting history, in one of the great capital cities of the world

We recently stayed at the Raffles Beijing. I cannot recommend the Raffles Ambassador strongly enough for people traveling "on their own" vs. group tour. The Raffles Ambassador, John Spooner, absolutely makes the Raffles Beijing experience. He greets you personally, talks with you over your itinerary, recommends the best way to get places (subway vs. taxi), explained how to use the... More

Overall, a great hotel. Very classy and I have to admit, that just the heritage made me happy to stay there. Fantastic location, right next to the subway and a great shopping street, very interesting night market, for food that no one will actually eat, crickets on sticks and such but interesting to see. And all the normal stores, H... More

Our experience with Raffles Beijing started before we arrived--we were contacted by email in anticipation of our arrival. We selected Raffles for its location and historic nature. The service was excellent, and the location perfect--steps from Wangfujing and a short walk to the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. The Raffles Ambassador and staff took the time to get to know... More
