“Great service but outdated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

First of all, the hotel has two buildings, one newer and the other look much older. We stayed here three nights with the travel agency and obviously we were placed in the older building. The rooms are just average at best and very outdated. But the staff were awesome and very caring. The breakfast was very very good. It is located outside second ring close to the zoo, therefore it's a little far from the main attractions. Overall it's an ok hotel but for the price that were listed I'll rather stay at regent hotel which is much nicer and centrally located. (We didn't pay for the hotel as it was a package from the travel agency)

As others comment the location of the hotel is a bit awkward, although it is easy to catch cabs to and from the hotel. Just make sure you actually take the taxis from the hotel and that you get dropped off at the hotel door. The staff write down the taxi numbers and watch the drivers as you pay - I had a shonky experience with a driver swapping my money for counterfeit money when he 'inadvertently' drove past the driveway and pulled up down the street and then kept giving me back my money saying it was torn or there was another problem. The staff were incredibly helpful and called the taxi companies to trace the driver (but it turned out the taxi also had fake number plates). The staff were also terrific in arranging a rushed, personal tour to the Great Wall (I didn't have much time with my work trip), and in advancing me money from my credit card when the ATMs kept declining my card. For other travellers who have this problem, there is an ATM in the basement of the hotel which worked fine! The restaurant was lovely and had a good vegetarian selection which was a real bonus for me. The bed was very comfortable and overlooked the hotel garden. The room was a little tired - not really five star but I would say the service is seven!

Things have sharpened up for the better since my last visit and I was grateful to all the staff for their attentive service. Room cleaning seems to be high standard and bathroom smells abated. Room service was fast and effective. I like staying here as the hotel is spacious and good swimming pool....and for me its in exactly the right part of the city. Congratulations to the staff for a nice visit.

Room Tip: For business and meetings the Valley Wing rooms are good providing access to Horizon Club . I prefe...

I have no doubt that Shangri la Hotel offer great services among a lot of Hotels Chain in the world. However, if the location desired to be close to attraction do not go for it. Otherwise, everything is great and perfect. I have got even complimentary shuttle serves to airport.

Stayed here for a week as it wasn't too far from Beijing exhibition centre. I was in a room in the valley wing and it was fantastic. Everthing you could possibly need or want for a home from home was supplied in the room. All the staff were fantastic and helpful and I would certainly go back. The only disappointment was the STAY restaurant, but I have left a separate review on that experience!

Room Tip: Valley wing is newer and has a great club lounge

We arrived at this 'idyllic beauty' after a long flight from the east coast of the U.S. What a pleasure to be welcomed by pleasant staff and inviting accommodations. Large, non-smoking room with a breathtaking view. Every traveler's need was thought and accommodated. The breakfast buffet is commensurate with the best luxury hotels in the U.S. offer.
