We stayed here as part of our first trip to China and loved this hotel. Very clean efficient and has everything you could need and more. If your going to Beijing I would recommend this hotel. The food was very good and if your hankering for Western food they have plenty. But your in China so eat that way.

The hotel itself is fine. Nice rooms, relatively little noise because of the space surrounding the buildings. Very nice breakfast buffet. Two things, however, were quite important for the rating of this hotel. First, the buttons for the elevator would give out quite severe shocks. Only pushing them with the keycard would work. Second, the whole building, from top to...

The hotel is a large (the largest) garden hotel in Beijing consisting of several buildings for rooms and apartments. It is easy to reach from the Metro and the bus to/from the airport. Quality and style of the rooms depend on the building your room is located in and the price per night, e.g., building 1 (more ambassador style) seems...

I stayed at the Friendship Hotel for a 3-day workshop and conference, and it was a great venue. The garden-style campus is quiet and green; since the nearest park is quite far (Summer Palace), runners can amuse themselves with the 1.3-km loop (doing a bunch of loops is actually not too boring since there is a lot to see). The...

The Grand building of Beijing Friendship Hotel is worthy staying. Facilities are fine; breakfast is ok, although charged expensively. Whilst staff at the front desk need to enhance her communications and effective interactions before jumping to issues rised, such as no show-up.

I went to this hotel on a business trip - our meeting was within the complex. The hotel is a huge campus with several large hotels, a central "Friendship Palace" with restaurants and gardens. I had a suite in building 2 - more expensive, but having read the reviews about building 4, I didn't want to risk smoke smells on...

If your take a flight, you can get there by shuttle bus from airport, and if you take a train, you can get there by metro. It's a hotel with more than 10 buildings in the whole garden. It's convenient for guests to find place to go shopping or have dinner.

This hotel looks really grand on the outside and is more like a mini suburb of buildings. On the inside the hotel or block that I stayed in was aging and in bad need of some maintenance. The carpet was grubby and room smelly. The clothes hanger was a cheap portable rack and the bathroom was old and toilet cramped...

First, imagine a garden hotel in the center of Peking. Great! The beer garden in front of the Friendship Palace (in which very good breakfast is served) is a cosy place to have a dinner or just a drink (but only imported beer and no wine) in the evening. Numer two, the hotel tells the history of Soviet-China warm relationship...

The picture looks nice, and I understood that the main building has been renovated so rooms should be ok. As for mine, it was terrible. Completely outdated, not clean, cigarette odour, hot. This place is made up out of a large number of separate buildings on a large premises, all of them in poor shape. Breakfast to be taken in...
