“Great Location; Great Deal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2009

Using TripAdvisor comparison shopping we found a wonderful deal through Agoda for a "deluxe room with breakfast" at this 4 Star hotel. It is a lovely hotel that is elegant but friendly (much more so that the Portman Ritz-Carlton in Shanghai) and quite new. The location is terrific--next to a subway and you can see the Forbidden City from the upper floors of the hotel. It is across from the Legendale and the Peninsula Hotels. Our huge room was on the top floor with a grand view. The bath was also huge with separate glass shower and lovely toiletries. The breakfast buffet was sumptuous and included Chinese, Japanese and Western selections and an attentive staff that wiped up spilled juice etc before you realized that it was spilled!! Internet was free as well. The fitness center and pool were also fantastic. And, it was a terrific buy!!!

As part of my China trip in July 09, I had the opportunity to stay at The Regent in Beijing. I came away very impressed.

Its a very simple building but the interiors have been designed very well. It imparts a sense of space and openess.

The check in process is smooth and efficient.

The rooms are spacious and again there is a very nice 'open' feel to the whole layout. I could literally breathe easier in this hotel. The room decor is very tasteful and simple. The bathroom ameneties are very nice though almost everything has a tinge of lemongrass. If you don't like lemongrass.....

The food is excellent. I ordered room service and I must say that it was one of the best burgers I'd tasted in a long time. In addition, the staff got my slightly complex order exactly right. Breakfast was in the coffee shop and the buffet spread offers a lot of choice. The egg station gets the orders right.

The staff while not over friendly is very efficient and pleasant.

I will definately stay here again and if possible, longer.

The rooms are huge and nicely appointed. Our room had a huge bathroom complete with a big tub and a shower room. We also had a desk and free internet service. Breakfast was included and had a omlet station, home-made waffles and more choices than you could possibly eat. The service was a bit "off" - they had a cast of thousands to wait on you - pretty young women standing to call the elevator and greet you at the restaurants and meals, but when I ordered a martini (even pointed at the menu), I got two shots of gin with no ice. They also did not refill the inroom tea stations every day so we had no milk affter the first day. These are little things, but for a place that carries on about The Regent Touch - they just didn't quite make it.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for one night as part of a cruise tour that we took. The hotel was only about one year old at the time. The public spaces are soaring, expansive and very modern in design. The room was extremely large and the most luxurious that I've seen, with every possible amenity, as was the bathroom. The Chinese restaurant (I believe that there was a continental restaurant) in the hotel was very good and the buffet breakfast was amazing, with both western and chinese dishes. I could have spent the whole day just eating the dumplings.

Very nice room, spacious, clean and everything you need. One draw back is that Wi Fi is not available in the room, it is an Ethernet connection. WiFi is in the public areas. We had a great driver for the day to go to the Great Wall. His name is Robin Kong (can be arranged at concierge desk) his English was excellent, very informative, would definitely recommend.
Location was great, a 15-20 min walk to Tiananmen Square, and Forbidden City.

Stayed at The Regent for 4 nights in May`09. This was my 4th visit to Beijing, and on earlier visits I have always stayed at The Peninsula just a cross the street. This time I wanted a new experience, and sure it was...
The Regent looks swanky from the outside, and for sure the lobby is impressing, but it is totally unpersonal.
Because of the late arrival, we had dinner at the hotel the first night. The food was really basic, and the prices skyrising! A cup of coffe USD 12,- , and a bottle of imported Norwegian water USD 17,- ...

Our room was great though, all the necessary equipment, and a beautiful bathroom, but already a little dated.

The service of the staff was basic, and in lack of training. After my pasts visits of Beijing, I had better knowledge of Beijing than the concierge desk... The only one smiling and trying to do her best was a girl called River that picked us up at the airport, any Beijing hotel, hire her!

Next time I will definitely go back to The Peninsula!
