I usually enjoy a stay at a Peninsula, I can't say it applied this time - the Peninsula Beijing is
more like an expensive shopping centre! The front of the hotel is an extremely noisy, busy
main road 24/7, after a sleepless night I asked to be moved and although the other side had
a far from attractive view, it was quiet! The Club Floor had extremely helpful staff but the food
was disappointing and sparse...possibly why the place was always nearly deserted. It is very
well sited to get to Tian'amen and the Forbidden City but gosh the smog!!
