The buffet breakfast is good with great food. The hotel's location is good. Closed to train station. It is good for business... More

I recently stayed at this hotel and found the staff in particular very impressive. They made it seem homely and always greeted me by name. The foyer and front area of the hotel is beautiful. I had an executive club room which was very spacious with a separate living area. The rooms could do with some refurbishment however as they... More

It's a solid hotel, but frankly it feels strange to be so close to Tiananmen. The traffic is extreme around the hotel, making many tourist attractions (besides Forbidden City) rather inaccessible. When you walk into the hotel, you feel like a diplomat on a formal visit to China..nice if that's what you're looking for. I'd prefer something a bit more... More

Raffles Beijing is a beautiful, well located hotel. Close to many major attractions and the subway the hotel is a welcome retreat from the summer heat. Rooms are oversized and well appointed, staff helpful and courteous and the Executive Club lounge was a welcome addition to our stay.

Stayed here this week with my husband. As we walked in the door we were warmly welcomed by John the Ambassador, who greeted us by name (never met him before).

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Reflecting Oriental refinement and French élan, Raffles Beijing Hotel epitomises refinement and exclusivity. Established in the early 1900s, this luxury Beijing hotel was then proclaimed as “the only deluxe hotel in the Far East”. A century on, guest rooms and suites draw inspiration from the golden age of travel but are technologically enabled with discretion for 21st century living. Personality Suites pay homage to luminaries from the hotel’s fabled history while Raffles Inc Business Rooms cater to business travellers on the move.Indulge in gastronomic delights at this Beijing hotel. Innovative French cuisine takes centrestage at the elegant Jaan Restaurant which recalls the glamour of the 1920s with glittering chandeliers and its original timber dance floor.The vibrant East 33 meanwhile offers international fare and the popular weekend Seafood Extravaganza.Ideally situated at the crossroads of famous Chang An Avenue and the district of Wangfujing, Raffles Beijing Hotel lies in the heart of the prestigious business and commercial districts, a few minutes from historical attractions such as the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Temple of Heaven, the Silk Market, and modern marvels such as the ‘Water Cube’ National Swimming Centre and ‘Bird’s Nest’ Olympic Stadium which captured the world’s imagination during the Summer Olympics of 2008. ... more   less
