Terrific stay at this hotel which is located right by Tiinneman square, National museum, and Forbidden city. Makes everything easier. Breakfast is great and I would recommend starting your day with it. John, the ambassador, is wonderful to deal with, full of useful information, and able to help with mostly all issues you may have

The location is just perfect in the center center of Beijing! Front staff is amazing! Rooms are really big. Do not expect to have good sights though but anyway you will have soo much to do that you have no time to spend in the hotel. The food is a little expensive but nearby you find amazing restaurants. The water... More

Amazing hotel! So beautiful and elegant. And even though they only charged us for a Landmark room, they upgraded us to a suite and it was beyond belief. A living room, office area, kitchen with Nespresso machine!, bedroom and 2 bathrooms. It was called the Tang Dynasty Suite. The only problem the hotel has to deal with is the A/C,... More

Raffles provides is a delightful "old-style" hotel that welcomed us every time we returned from our day's sightseeing in Beijing. The building is set back on East Chang An Avenue and is very well located. The foyer is furnished in traditional and very comfortable furniture with wonderful vases of flowers. The rooms are also very comfortable and we were upgraded... More

The Raffles Beijing is suitable both for business and for leisure/tourism. It is located about five minutes walk from Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, so it doesn't get any more central in Beijing than that! Equally close by is the Wangfujing shopping district. For tourism the location is wonderful. For business it is a question of where your meetings... More

The hotel is in a fantastic location, just steps from Forbidden City and Tian'amen Square, close to a major shopping mall and subway lines 1 and 5. The highlight of our time at Raffles was interacting with the staff - John Spooner, Chadi Chemaly and the concierge team were warm, engaging and wonderfully helpful. We strongly recommend taking advantage of... More
