“A bit far from the city.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2009

The hotel is pretty much brand new, as it only opened during the Olympics. However, it is a bit far from the action, and it takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour by subway to the city center. The room is spacious, and the bathroom got a nice bath. The flatscreen TV is nice too!!
In general, if you do not mind the travelling, it is a good hotel with decent price. It is cheaper than the same quality hotel in the city centre.

I have stayed in many hotels but this is by far the best by far. i come to China on average once every 2 months and I have tried for 2 years to find a fabulous hotel. And here it is. The staff are incredible - friendly and caring and very knowledgeable. I love staying here as I feel like it is a home away from home - something that is not easily achieved in any hotel. The rooms are large very comfortable, very attractive and as a business traveller that is essential. I not only recommend you stay here but insist on it! Although some distance from the shopping area of Wangfujing the quiet streets at night more than make up for it and it is only a 30 min cab ride to Wangfujing. There are great restaurants only 5-10 mins away. I love this place and have now ensured all my colleagues stay here. This is my 6th stay and I would not contemplate staying anywhere else.

He stayed at this First Class hotel in March on a holiday through China.

We read the reviews on here and decided to stay.

The hotel was amazing - great facilities - awesome friendly and professional service.

Food amazing - amenities amazing - the pool and spa areas first class.

I have attached some pictures of the pool and also some dishes we has in the Chinese restuarant at the hotel. The Chef and staff were so helpful and the food was the best Chinese I have eaten anywhere!

The rooms are very large and the bathroom is awesome.

A nightly turn down service will suprise you!

Make sure you say hi to "Vince" in the buffet area - very helpful and a great source of information.

Nearly forgot - the Birds Nest and Olympic venues are across the road!

From the moment of the reservation up to my departure, my experience was perfect.
A warm welcome whilst checking in, a very helpful concierge, great rooms with lots of space and lots of attention to the detail, great breakfast, lunch and dinner - all in all the service was overwelming and just like it should be.
The hotel offers a state-of-the-art wellness and fitness center where you can easily hide after a long day of meetings.
I will never ever go to another hotel while staying in Beijing!

Located in the Olympic Stadium area the hotel has a great feeling of space and quiet that is rare in Beijing. Its a lovely hotel, big rooms and its new. The arrival experience from the airport sets the stage for an enjoyable stay and I do recommend taking the hotel limousine. Excellent concierge, helpful staff who are eager to please. There are good dining options, rooms are excellently priced and the pianist at the lounge is great.

There is not much around the hotel but the subway is a 2 minute walk and its a quick run into the main areas of town. Its a big bonus to stroll around the lovely stadium areas - try and get a room facing the arenas to enjoy the light show at night.

The fitness centre and pool are superb but unfortunately it was a busy trip and I will have to try these next time.

We stayed at the Beichen for 4 nights on a trip.

We were amazed at the service and amenities at the Hotel.

Beds with pillow menus - soft, hard, firm, down etc.

The room we had was 2 single beds (they are the size of a double bed) with an amazing bathroom and plasma TV. Large rooms with large amounts of storage and a dedicated table and chair and office supplies for a business man are a great feature.

Coffee in the lounge area is an experience in its self - see the pictures.

Then you have the breakfast and dinner buffet in the o2 restaurant - if you cannot find something from the vegeterian, chinese, cantonese, japanese, indian, seafood, western and amazing dessert buffet (all in one) that includes soft drinks and tea and coffee you will never be pleased!

An amazing hotel with amzing service - there was snow outside around -2degrees celcius and we could swim in the indoor heated pool at 28 degrees celcius. (check the pictures out).

We booked this through our travel agent with a breakfast for around $145 AUD per night - this is the best value hotel I think I have stayed in the world!

I stayed in InterContinental Beijing Beichen on Nov, December, Jan and Feb 2008 and 2009, one who travel as mush as I do, you are the difficult customer and have vary little tolerance for any think that does wrong, this hotel makes certain that nothing goes wrong, and make every attempt to make me very happy.

Having traveling in and around China as well as around the world for many years. As a frequent traveler, the hotel has meets all my needs and requests during the time I stayed there. All the staffs are excellence. They are very friendly and can speak good English and they always offer me the best service to make each of my days to be the best one.

The staffs make me feel that InterContinental is the second home for me. They treat me like I am a part of their family.
If you are a frequent traveler like me, its great hotel, I highly recommend this hotel to you.
Club InterContinental, if you like great vine and cheese like I do, check it out the service is impeccable
By the way, my view of the Olympic park a green area, is spectacular, Bird Nest, Water cube, indoor stadium and the TV tower this has got to be the best view in Beijing.
