“My home in Beijing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

I travel all the time for business and am in Beijing 2-3 times each month. I love this hotel and stay here whenever I can. It's well situated for business and just above the main subway lines for personal travel. (Given Beijing traffic it's smart to know the underground!)

Incredible attention to detail from the lobby flowers to the in-room amenities. Incredible bathrooms and great beds.

Located above the China World Mall there's ample choice for dining.

An expensive treat that's well worth the price.

Room Tip: I prefer the south facing rooms as Beijing sun can heat a room faster than a microwave!

The staff here went out of their way to make our stay very pleasant. The Chief Concierge, Leon, personally walked me to the bakery my first morning, obtained dinner reservations for the best Peking Duck restaurant, researched the cooking class and made the arrangements for us. Jenny, Guest Relations Officer, greeted us by name each evening, knew where we had been, and offered her advice. Dirk made sure the cab driver knew exactly where to take us in the hutong. They explained how to take the Metro, which was a great accomplishment, but so valuable as traffic here in the worst I have experienced anywhere, ever. Cherry, in-house Grayline Tour consultant, set us up with a private tour that covered everything we wanted to see in one day, which we really enjoyed. Ask for Alice for your guide.

In Beijing, we were Americans with no Chinese language skills. English is the exception, and if spoken it is often not fluent. I hate organized tours, and the staff here helped us get around to gain the full experience, keeping us safe. Really funny when we left on our subway trip-proffering no less than 4 cards to be given to a cab driver in Chinese that said "please take me to the China World Hotel". Just in case.

Housekeeping very courteous, in spite of our later room departures. Rooms were immaculate, beds very comfortable, really great shower.

Sara (#18) gave a fabulous Chinese massage.

Annie in the lobby saved us a pastry tray for a later high tea. Lovely service.

Highly recommend this haven in Beijing.

I have stayed at Four Seasons
at Beijing before and was a little worried by TA reviews of China World. It was older but clean and quiet. It was really hot and humid the week I was there but room cool. Breakfast very nice. When my car did not show up to take me to the airport, the valet was extremely concerned and they were working to get a replacement. I would stay there again for business.

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!
