“A grand hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

This is one of the best hotels in Beijing and deserves the 4-star rating. The hotel is luxurious, well-maintained and includes elegant and pleasant public areas.

The rooms are most comfortable, well-appointed and have all the comfort expected of an international quality hotel. There was not a hint of any cigarette smoke throughout the hotel, including in the rooms.

The staff are to be commended. Their English is perfect, their attention is outstanding and they are pleasant and welcoming. For business particularly, the hotel is very well positioned in the financial district and within easy reach of all the major financial firms and banks.

A lovely hotel. I look forward to returning.

my stay at this hotel was a good experience. I don't have any thing to complain about. the staff was warm, friendly, flexible, taking very personal interest in making me comfortable. The room was neat, cleaned regularly at reasonable intervals. the amenities were functioning. The hotel location was just right and at the heart of town. the food nice. I invite all visiting Beijing to try this hotel. I bet you will not regret it.

We stayed at the China World Hotel for 8 days. It was a very luxurious hotel that was well priced. The buffet breakfast was excellent, with a great range of food to choose from.
The beds were very comfortable, and the rooms were very well equipped with everything you needed. They provided a bowl of complimentary fresh fruit in the room, which was a nice touch.
All the staff were friendly and helpful in every way. They provided you with a little business card with places to visit written in Chinese, so that you could give that to the taxi drivers who usually didn't speak very much English at all, and they would know where you wanted to go. This was very useful. They were also able to recommend tours, which again proved to be very useful. The location of the hotel was also excellent and there was a subway station very close by.
We really had a wonderful stay in this luxurious hotel.

We stayed at the China World Hotel for four nights and it was a wonderful experience! The hotel is beautiful (especially the lobby), our room was very comfortable and the breakfast buffet was incredible! Everyone who works there from the bell men, the receptionists, elevator men, maids, restaurant staff and especially the concierge staff made our stay at this hotel fantastic! There is a concierge named Dirk who went out of his way to make sure that we had a wonderful time in Beijing. Dirk was so helpful, so kind and so genuine! I highly recommend staying at the China World Hotel for any type of Beijing visit!

We stayed at the the China World Hotel and really enjoyed our stay. The room was very nice and comfortable. We enjoyed our breakfasts and we also had a very good "traditional" dinner one night. We were very impressed with the staff. They made a point of recognizing us when we were in the lobby area and made us feel welcomed. Several times during our stay, they checked to make sure we were happy with the hotel. We were with a group of three other couples and had a guide, but the location is very good and central.

China World (part of the Shangri La Group) exudes traditional oriental opulence. Whilst its been superseded by newer 5 star internationally branded hotels in recent years, its still the hotel of choice for many visting dignitaries and local businessman. The lobby is a spacious hive of constant activity. The room I stayed in on the 7th floor was renovated, with a large bathroom and a good sized study desk. Theres a good breakfast spread at The Scene Cafe.

One important thing to note is its prime location, being situated at the heart of the Business District, connected to a shopping complex with good access to the subway below. In traffic congested Beijing, this matters greatly.
