3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2009

The Loong palace is a gorgeous hotel and resort , it has fantastic facilities , and is the only place in Beijing you can feel alone......sadly it is because you are . After a hectic eight nights spent in the city touring all the sites it was lovely to just unwind and relax out at the Loong palace, the staff are happy smiling people and the place is five stars without a doubt . The great wall is visable on a clear day and the tombs are not so far away so even if you wanted to base yourself out here it is not so far from everything , It would be wonderful if more people used the hotel and travelled into the sites each day to then come back to quiet luxury of an evening . (it took about 30 mins from the forbidden city to reach the hotel ) small pointer -you need a cap to use the swimming pool .

The hotel is located in the Chang Ping district and is close to the Great Wall and Ming Tombs and institutions such as Peking University. If you want to go to downtown Beijing, it is a 30 minute journey in a reasonably priced hotel car or a cab. The hotel has excellent facilities including indoor tennis courts, a bowling alley, well equipped recreation centre/ gymnasium, pool and a very good massage / spa. The restaurants are very good with an excellent range of cuisines and the Japanese restaurant is outstanding. The rooms are spacious and clean. For what you get, this is excellent value. Highly recommended.

The hotel is phenominal, but the problem is that it is in the middle of nowhere, thus as my colleagues call it "the Lonely Palace." Why? This location is outside of the 5th ring highway (anything beyond the 5th ring is considered the boon-docks). But when I first moved to China, my company housed me at the Loong Palace for a month, and I enjoyed my stay, but being so far away, almost everywhere I wanted to go was a 40-50 RMB (6-7 USD) cab ride away. Although for the US people, 6-7 USD seems like nothing for a cab right, the equivalent for cost of living is that the cab ride is like 35 USD. So if you think about it, cab rides start off at 10 RMB for the first 2.9 KM, and then 1 RMB for every KM you travel. So if you do the math, you will realize how far the place is. I think from Tienneman Square to the Great Wall (Badaling section which is the area that you should go to), this is the halfway point. So if you're thinking in US, if you're going from LA to Vegas, this place would be Barstow. But this hotel is truly a 5-star hotel (as in Ritz Carlton standards). The manager there is Dutch, speaks fluent english and fluent Chinese. And since I had a corporate rate, the month that I stayed there, the total bill for the month came out to 900 USD. Now that's cheaper than the price of rent in NY city for a studio in the city.

Like I said, it's not the most convenient of places, but the place is definitely a hidden gem. Also, with all the development going on by there is a new gigantic Japanese mall just north of the hotel which has a Korean Lotteria (burger joint), a Korean restaurant chain, a Sports Authority, and some other international brands.

The Hotel is very new. Clean, very western in terms of the bathrooms and room furnishings. Traveled with a very large group (350). The breakfasts we had at the Hotel were a mix of western and Chinese dishes.

others who had traveled to beijing warned us that a 5 star hotel in china might not be up to our usual standards. this is an exception. should be rated 5-1/2 stars. great room, outstanding common area facilities.

the staff was always ready to help. money exchange, extra towels, business center and written chinese directions for taxi drivers, just a few of the great services.

they try hard with english, but the difficulties encountered just added to the interest of traveling in china. my wife and i stayed for 8 days, and for someone who had traveled extensively, this hotel, and china, rated as one of our best travel experiences.
