The first experience at the hotel was not very promising: I got a room next to the AC-generator, extremely noisy, which I refused. I was given then a wonderful room - which was ice-cold. The next day I asked for a change again. Both changes weren't a problem at all, at the contrary, the manager called me asking if I... More

The Raffles hotel lived up to our expectations. With its friendly staff and excellent service, we felt warmly welcomed by everyone. Our stay was made all the more special by the personal and warm attention of two very special individuals, John (Raffles Ambassador) and Chadi (Exec. Asst Manager). Thanks to them, our visit was very memorable and the hotel a... More

I arrived quite late, but we have been welcome by the hotel ambassador. It was overwhelmed. We've been brought to our room. The moment i enter my room, it was the best room i ever had!

The hotel is wonderful and is what you expect from a 5 star hotel. The heritage room we had was spacious and very comfortable. The service is great as well.

For our first visit to China, we chose a hotel brand that we were comfortable with. Situated fifteen minutes away from Tianneman Square and the Forbidden City, the location of the hotel is ideal for tourists. The atmosphere of the hotel is conservative, but very friendly. We had a number of conversations with Hank the concierge who was incredibly helpful.... More

First time staying at the Raffles in Beijing. I reserved a club lounge room and got upgraded on checkin to a junior suite which was huge. The room was in the older (original) side of the hotel. It was a traditional British Colonial type setting. While very clean, the room showed its age and could use some update. Location is... More

This hotel is a great location, within walking distance of The Forbidden City and the subway. Rooms are big and clean but getting dated. However, the service is outstanding with attention to detail given. This is a western hotel in an Eastern city. If you are looking for some tranquility in the chaos of Beijing this would be a good...

It's classic, in the middle of everything (at least for my travel objectives) and great service. As most reviewers note, it's close to the subway, Wangfujing shopping/eating, Forbidden City / Tiananmen Square and offices of foreign multinational companies.
