This hotel reminds me of the old time world charm palaces. The entrance is spectacular and the attrium lobby is simply breathtaking. It is a very large hotel with a dominant presence in Beijing. The spa was unbelievable...beautiful Roman marble columns with glamourous touches everywhere you look. Really stunning in many ways. I highly recommend this property to anyone. Only downside which is common in China is the language barrier. Contrary to what anyone says, English is rarely spoken here.

I stayed at this hotel for a week business trip and is one of the finest hotels where I ever stayed. It is also one of the few hotels that even looks more beautiful in reality than on the hotel webpage. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms are spacious and the bathroom is very fine. The hotel is built in a retro French-baroque style which you may like or not. They even used original materials that they brought over from France such as the magnificent chimney in the lobby. The hotel was built just before the olympics and everything feels and looks like new. One evening when we got home, we found a huge birthday cake in our room, which was offered by yhr hotel because it was the birthday of my room mate. I can very warly recommend you this hotel.

Location: We spent five nights in the Legendale in Beijing, the final stop of our 12 day tour of China. This is great hotel. The opulence is pseudo French but pulls it off quite well, not in a tacky fashion. The rooms are really spacious and comfortable. The feeling on waking from the super-comfortable bed is of sheer pleasure remembering you're in such a lovely room and just minutes walk to Tienanmen Square. Just a few steps to the night food markets (try the small scorpions - just like crispy chicken skin!!). Cannot imagine a better hotel in Beijing.
Service: We found the service impeccable while at the hotel but what really impressed more was the after care service. I left a gift I had bought behind in the hotel and on contacting the hotel they could not have been more helpful. They packaged the item really well and posted it from China to Ireland all at their own expense. It was so well packaged that it arrived in perfect condition despite being fragile. This is customer service second to none!

This hotel is European style, I like it so much. Its location is in the center of the capital Beijing. Living here, you can enjoy the famous Beijing Hutong. It is arguably the best location in this exciting city and has something for everyone. Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City and the Drum and Bell Towers are all within walking distance.

this is very good hotel in an excellent location near the centre of Beijing (walking distance to Tianamen square / forbidden city etc) comfortable rooms very classical style with a bit too much gold fittings but really very nice. room value excellent bar prices etc a bit on the high side but still worth staying here

Room Tip: stay at the back and little or no noise from the city traffic

The Legendale is in a fabulous location mere minutes away from Wangfujing, and close to malls, famous restaurants, etc.
However there are two drawbacks - one is the service, which at times was friendly and others times indifferent. Room service was always fast and efficient however the concierge / reception is often chaotic, and we had to wait around 20 minutes just to check in upon arrival. The second is catching a taxi - this speaks more to the area of Wangfujing perhaps than the hotel itself, but there is a wait of at least 20 minutes if you wish to catch a cab outside the hotel, even longer in peak hour or when it's raining. This proved to be a major inconvenience on our trip as we had to resort to subways and buses.
Food and drinks are particularly expensive at Legendale and not of great value. The hotel decor is very opulent upon arrival however the rooms are not in the greatest of shape - our bathroom doorknob fell off and the aircon temperature couldn't be changed.
Overall, still recommended. Alternatively if you are looking to stay in Wangfujing for sure, I'd recommend The Hilton Wangfujing (little bit more expensive than Legendale but fantastic service by comparison) or the Novotel Peace (considerably cheaper, but still very nice rooms actually and better service I thought).
