“The Best Fairmont in the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

We had a great time staying at this hotel, room is super nice, clean and everyone is super friendly. The location is great too, and very easy to get a taxi around. If we come back to Beijing, we will stay there again.

Stayed in Sept 2012, junior suite.

Very luxurious hotel and the manager of the Gold Lounge and his staff were really warm,welcoming and fun, qualities that can be lost in larger hotels.

Great attention to detail in the rooms amenities.

We also ate at The Cut and Lunar 8 restaurants and loved them both.

Really could not recommend this hotel highly enough, close to silk markets and transport, hotel happy to organise shows/events

We visited Beijing for a few days during Mid Autumn Festival, and we were told how many people travel during this holiday in China, so we expected to be in a swarm of people at all times, but we got lucky enough to find the Fairmont in Beijing! It is away from the hustle and bustle of this busy city, and there was no noise nearby, as it is more in a business district, and it was very calm and relaxing our whole visit. Nearby was the Hyatt where they recommended to go for dinner because their steakhouse was closed for the holiday, and it was a great recommendation as we LOVED the restaurant. The hotel also made arrangements for a personal driver and tour guide to see the Great Wall and Ming Tombs and we wouldn't have had it any other way! Breakfast was buffet style and probably one of the better hotel breakfasts I've had as it was extremely western and had a lot of variety. We also went to the lounge for appetizers throughout different parts of our days throughout the stay, and it was always very nice and clean. The rooms were great, the staff was great, the location was great. I couldn't find one little thing that we weren't happy about, so I would highly recommend staying here!

Second time, still as excellent. When you travel a lot like me, hotels become just the place to sleep and shower. This is one of the few hotels I really look forward to visiting. Especially the spacious Golden floor rooms and the very tasteful Golden lounge are excellent. Same for the restaurant Lunar 8 that serves a delicious Peking Duck with very thin crepes and for the complete gym and spa. Actually very good value for money, for a top class hotel. Highly recommended. I do not look further in Beijing. 300m from line 1 subway station Yonganli. In the middle of the CBD Central Business District and close to most central Beijing tourist attractions and shopping centres.

Room Tip: If you can spend a bit more indulge in luxury with the suites on the Golden Floors. Very good black...

We booked ourselves in a golden suite with Fairmont prior to our cruise and all I can say is this was one of the best hotels we stayed in. The suite was perfect. Everything in our room was gold. We even had our our lounge to have our breakfast. What a luxury. A truly 5 star experience....

Hotel staff were also great and very helpful. Everybody was ready to give us a helping hand whenever and whatever we asked for. Location is also great. Fairmont Beijing is very close to Silk Market.

I highly recommend this hotel to everyone.

This was my second visit to the Fairmont and I was simply delighted when I arrived on Thursday afternoon to see the massive, real Christmas tree in the spacious foyer.....just like home ( Canada)! After staying in the Hotel Macdonald, the Banff Springs and the Jasper Park Lodge....this Fairmont lives up to the family name...it is simply wonderful and the service impeccable. It may be chaotic outside, especially if one visits the Silk Market, but the hotel is a quite oasis. A lovely room with a gorgeous bath tub to soak in...and an incredible dinner at the onsite steakhouse "The Cut" made for a brilliant respite.
