Just checked out of the Langham Place Beijing Capital Airport Hotel after a one night stay. This is by far the best airport hotel I have stayed in. From an upgrade at check in to Club room through the great tandoori chicken pizza in the bar, really comfortable bed and fast and efficient check out and transfer to the airport, this was a great (all too short) stay.
The staff were very friendly, stopping to say hello, spoke good English and were helpful and efficient.
My colleague, who was also with me, had stayed the previous week and been on the shuttle bus when there was an accident. Not the hotel drivers fault. On check in they made a point of speaking to my colleague and again apologising for any inconvenience caused to him and updating him on the circumstances surrounding the accident.
The room was very comfortable, modern with great amenities and a really comfortable bed. The air con worked brilliantly, which made for a good nights sleep. Despite being close to the airport there was no noise.
As with most Langham hotels, the place is quirky in a pleasing way. Lots of artwork, a great work and play IT area, video games consoles, pool tables in the main bar and a resident DJ, although we didn't hear him as we had a very early flight and needed some sleep. The pizza in the bar was superb and the happy hour (buy 2 get 1 free on local beers etc) a nice touch.
We ate in the club lounge and the complimentary food was undoubtedly the best I have had in any hotel club lounge. Fresh Japanese sashimi, hot fish dishes, complimentary beers, wines and premium spirits, all served in a quiet, relaxing environment, again with friendly, efficient staff in attendance.
There's a gym which we didn't use, but which was well equipped. The only thing missing, which I think would have been useful, was a steam room/sauna.
The hotel is less than 5 minute free shuttle bus ride from terminal 3 and the bus runs every 15 minutes, and we were given a breakfast box as we left at 4am. There is also a complimentary self serve coffee and pastry station for those catching early flights and unable to get breakfast which I think is served from 6am. They do have 24 hour room service however so you can get breakfast at anytime to your room.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone needing to be close to the airport, whether visiting Beijing on business, as a single traveller or as a couple or indeed as a family. There's something for everyone and the Langham does it all so well. From the airport there is also a fast 20 minute) train transfer into Beijing itself so I suppose you could use the hotel as a base to visit the city itself.
Next time I'm in Beijing and need to stay close to the airport, I won't hesitate to stay here again.
