“Great Services, Spacious Room and Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Recently stayed. The staffs, esp. at the Horizon Floor and the Swimming Pool are excellent - City View quite spectacular. Food and Scene Café is nice. Hainan Chicken Rice has big portions! Great place to stay in Beijing, esp. as it's right in the middle of the CBD. Will definitely returns.

Room Tip: Above 17th floor is best.

The China World Hotel in Beijing is really the choice for business travel to Beijing. In last few years, when I went to Beijing for business, China World Hotel has been first choice and I have never got wrong. The people are nice, friendly and professional. The services are of top quality and the place has been designed for your business activities.

Room Tip: The location is quite good for business activities.

China World is supposedly a landmark hotel known by many foreigners and locals as well. The lobby, though not to my liking, is very impressive. It is definitely one of the most opulent Chinese-style lobbies I've ever seen. I was greeted with smiling faces from when I stepped out of the car to the check in counter.

A friendly staff greets and holds the elevator doors and that was somewhat unexpectedly nice. Given the opulence of the lobby, I was expecting my room to be furnished at a similar level but was a tad underwhelmed. The bathroom was really really nice, but the room itself had uninspiring furnishings. Perhaps, I was just expecting it too be just a little more ritzy. There was nothing wrong with it, but I just did not see how an awkwardly displayed vase adds to the atmosphere- it simply did not feel truly luxurious. The mattress was typical Shangri-la, meaning its slightly firmer, but I like it.

Breakfast buffet was good, but you definitely pay for it. It costs about RMB240 (approx 40USD) and would definitely be worth it if you have a huge appetite. Otherwise, I would recommend ordering a la carte which would save you a third of that price.

All in all, this is a really good hotel with excellent staff. Just don't expect the level of opulence at the lobby to be carried over to the rooms. Maybe this is a actually good thing to some guests...

This place is perfect. Great location, incredible staff, fair price and nice view of the city. The music in the lobby as well as in the bar was really fantastic.

The wait staff in the bar? Bernie, Rocky and the others really made me feel at home.

I would absolutely stay here again.

Whilst there are many newer hotels in Beijing the China World Hotel has a nice mature feel to it and quite a strong Chinese style. Many of the staff appear to have been working there quite a while and have found the right balance when it comes to being friendly and proving very good service. From a the perspective of someone who spends a lot of time travelling for business I would rate this as one of the best hotels that I've stayed at. The location within the China World Complex and next to a metro station also make it very convenient.

My recent 8-day stay at China World was simply outstanding. The attentive staff, world-class fitness facility, stylish pool, and luxurious rooms made for a very enjoyable stay. It is close to the Forbidden City and a short walk to the Silk Street Market. The Aria Restaurant is perfect for lunch, and the Aria Bar is fun at night with live music. Dinner at the Nadaman Japanese Restaurant in the Summit Wing of the hotel is a must -- the set dinners and cold sake selection are special. Don't miss the quartet playing traditional Chinese instruments in the lobby at night. The 20th floor Horizon Lounge is recommended for first class treatment. I've stayed at several hotels in Beijing including the Ritz Carlton, Renaissance and Kunlun, and I would place the Shangri-La China World above them all.

Room Tip: Horizon Lounge has a great made-to-order breakfast selection and enjoyable happy hour from 5:30-7:30...
