Great hotel. We were on in Beijing for 3 nights and had our baby with us so wanted a nice hotel in a great location. This met that requirement. The main selling point is that the hotel is situated in a truly great location on Qianmen Street which we thought was incredible. So beautifully designed with incredible street art, architecture, shops and restaurants. And ofcourse this leads to Tianaman Square and The Forbidden Palace - both in walking distance. So an ideal place to stay with transport links allowing you to explore the rest of the city. The hotel itself was really cool, very modern. It had all the amenities you would expect, breakfast was served in a really funky looking room (felt like an underground bar). It was quite dark everywhere but to be honest that was a nice relaxing vibe after being in a busy hectic city. The staff were friendly and helpful and gave nice advice and tips to get around the Chinese internet! (tip... get a VPN before you get there - even if you dont want to use the internet on holiday, its pretty essential for travel planning in China we found). We booked a Soak King Room which was all white. It was great with the main feature being a huge round spa bath. We were there in December so it was lovely relaxing in this as the snow fell outside. On the rooftop was a restaurant/bar. Only gripe we had with this hotel was their refusal to serve us food when we arrived 1 minute after food service ended. Bit frustrating as it was 11:01 at night and everywhere else was shut and we had a child. But like most of China, they set a rule and really stick to it! But great place to stay in our opinion.

Let me start by saying that this "hotel" doesn't even deserve to be called a hotel. It is more like a building with rooms that have beds. It lacks everything from customer service to hospitality to the staff acting like their guests are getting in the way of their job. Let me be clear, this has nothing to do with not one member of the hotel staff being able to speak English. There is a rooftop pool which is quite unique to have in Beijing. It is small, approximately 15 m. The view is decent but it is Beijing so there are really no special city views. Again, don't even try ordering a drink from the rooftop "bar", you would be lucky if you were even brought a menu. The rooftop pool has more of a public pool atmosphere than a lounge in a hotel. The location is great being so close to the Forbidden City, the National Museum and Tiananmen Square but there are dozens of other options in the area. Save your money and time and find another proper hotel.

We stayed at The Emperor for 3 nights and the entire team were extremely friendly and helpful. The location is excellent as it's located right next to the shopping street with a lot things to do and eateries. I have to admit that it's hard to find the hotel in the very beginning as it's hidden by the corner. But you will get over it after knowing where you are. Apart from that, the room is clean and spacious with good mixed of varieties at the breakfast buffet. Service is really impeccable as most of the service crew that I dealt with went above and beyond. Highly recommended!!!

We stayed in this hotel for three nights. We had problem at arrival because we had to get down outside on the main road and then wheel in our luggage aqbout 100 m to the hotel. The reason is because the hotel is located in a no-vehicular traffic zone. The hotel is an art-deco style. The staff at the reception was extremely polite and friendly. We were upgraded by the Guest relations Manager Miller Liu to a larger room. The room was large, clean, nicely furnished and with a very comfortable bed and a good shower. The buffet breakfast was excellent with variety of good food. There is a roof top bar and pool. The hotel is a walking distance to the Tianmen Square, forbidden City and other sights and very close to train and Metro stations and a Bus terminal. The hotel staff helped us to hire taxis and provided directions. The surrounding area is a recreation of a village with no vehicular traffic and an ancient market place with many eating places and gift shops. At nights it is full of locals and tourists and lot of hustle bustle. It is a good value for the money. At check out, the hotel staff arranged for the taxi to airport and helped us to bring our baggage to the road outside.

This hotel has an excellent location, right next to a popular street food lane. It’s easy to get everywhere. We got the soak room, with the big bath which was a treat. A small selection of free minibar drinks was great too and bed was comfy. Only downside was our experience with reception. Check in was very slow and despite advertising a New Year’s Eve dinner everywhere, it took four attempts and showing them the signs for the staff to know what we were asking about. They also advertised an ‘unlimited drinks’ option to go with it, but the price was misleading. Then on the day of, we got a note saying the restaurant would be closing at 10pm, from its usual time. Very glad we didn’t go for that. Enjoy the location and the bath if that’s what you’re looking for!

Firstly to anyone contemplating visiting Beijing let me tell you that (other than becoming engaged!) our visit to the Great Wall Of China was the highlight of five weeks in five countries, so if you’re on the fence, go to the wall!!! This hotel is fantastically located for the other things we did too - walking distance from the forbidden city! It was also extremely easy to get to from the airport, we took the train both ways. The breakfast selection was just fantastic! Probably the best out of everywhere we stayed. Buffet style appealing to all cultures and fresh cooked options too. The rooms I have to say were somewhat disappointing, no where near a slick as they appear in the photos and looking quite tatty around the edges if I’m honest. We also didn’t get much hot water to be able to enjoy the luxuriously sized shower. The biggest disappointment for us was that we had book the hotel and felt comfortable with the price based on it having an indoor spa pool and a restaurant, neither of which it turns out any longer exist and without them we did not feel it was good value for money. I must also warn you that half the internet seems to be censored in China, so my advice to plan, book and print and thing you want to do before you go. We couldn’t use our gmail or a number of apps. It’s also very difficult to connect to any WiFi out and about. I’d like to compliment the city, in particular the area around the Emperor hotel on it’s cleanliness. No litter in sight and all the mopeds are electric! Despite it being a bustling city, very few places (not even the train station) accept card payments and I’d also suggest having things written down in Chinese as we found that there was very little English spoken. Everyone we met though in particular the hotel staff where very friendly and helpful.

The location is excellent and staff is very kind and friendly, always available to help. Rooms are clean and there is free minibar. The standard room they gave us didn't correspond at all to the photos showed on the website where we booked. We asked to change room the second day and they kindly accepted. The new room was a bit better but still not meeting our expectations. The swimming pool was closed and it will remain closed probably till October. This wasn't mentioned anywhere on the website and the staff wouldn't have told us if we didn't ask. That's a pity cause one of the reasons why we chose this hotel was the swimming pool. In my opinion the price is too high for what the hotel offers...

We had been looking forward to staying here, expecting a smart, boutique hotel experience. On arrival however, we found the roof pool was empty, the meal options at night were limited/non existent and the aircon only blew hot air. That said, we enjoyed the stay and found the staff working there to be helpful when we attempted to arrange vehicles and trips. Particularly good features were the roof top terrace, where excellent meals were available, and the location of the hotel itself. Very easy walking distance from Tiananmen Square and the surrounding shopping streets. These positives certainly make the hotel a worthy place to stay, even if only for a short period.

The hotel is situated in a great location, the rooms are a little tired but not bad. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was good. If you are there to use as simply a base then it really is a perfectly good hotel for that. The rooftop bar was fantastic with views over the forbidden city.

Nihao ❤️ I wish that you could remember me. Hard to explain how badly I’m missing Beijing and especially The Emperor Tiananmen team. You guys have made my first trip to Beijing to become the dream that I always dreamt of. The room is perfect, nice decoration with the float on the ceiling and I love the bathroom so much and I did enjoy the darkness of floating room since I do not like too much light. Thank you very much for all of your recommendation for spa, dining, day tour. Your service makes me feel like home. I miss the very nice yoghurt that you had left on the table for me. It made me smile after a long tiring day out under the coldness of Beijing. I really love people here and I mean it by heart. I wish to come back next time soon and to see all of you again. Keep your good work!
