The entire experience of Raffles Beijing was exceptional. The service was outstanding and the Raffles Ambassador made me feel particularly welcome. The hotel provided a relaxing respite during a particularly demanding work period.

Beautiful hotel. Our room was amazing. Clean and beautifully decorated! Great location. Unbelievable value for money. Make sure you stay here in Beijing, right near Forbidden city and shopping precinct!

From the very moment we arrived the staff at Raffles was nothing short of exceptional. The 'raffles ambassador' was extremely helpful. He helped us plan our daily tours, places to eat, advised us on local customs etc. Every day upon leaving and returning the entire staff would know where we were going or coming from and send us off or...

Dear Kevinxiao82, Thank you for your recent stay and review of Raffles Beijing Hotel. We have been spoilt by all the positive feedback from our guests that lead you to stay at our hotel; a review of your nature is therefore disappointing.

We travel a lot and can be picky and found Raffles Beijing to be a dream. Spectacular heritage building, updated and large rooms, great amenities and shops and the location can't be beat.

This five-star hotel is close to the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. Other than that, it doesn't live up to its five-star designation. We were on the fourth floor, the carpet in the hallway smelled like cat urine, and I wasn't imagining it since other guests on the same floor agreed. The decor and furniture was higher end, but it's... More

A heritage building that is one of the best hotels in Beijing. Luxurious throughout, our suite (a free upgrade) was spectacular. And what a location! Walking distance from the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square, plus it is just around the corner from the trendy Wangfujing pedestrian mall. The staff is highly attentive - the airline lost one of our bags,... More

Reflecting Oriental refinement and French élan, Raffles Beijing Hotel epitomises refinement and exclusivity. Established in the early 1900s, this luxury Beijing hotel was then proclaimed as “the only deluxe hotel in the Far East”. A century on, guest rooms and suites draw inspiration from the golden age of travel but are technologically enabled with discretion for 21st century living. Personality Suites pay homage to luminaries from the hotel’s fabled history while Raffles Inc Business Rooms cater to business travellers on the move.Indulge in gastronomic delights at this Beijing hotel. Innovative French cuisine takes centrestage at the elegant Jaan Restaurant which recalls the glamour of the 1920s with glittering chandeliers and its original timber dance floor.The vibrant East 33 meanwhile offers international fare and the popular weekend Seafood Extravaganza.Ideally situated at the crossroads of famous Chang An Avenue and the district of Wangfujing, Raffles Beijing Hotel lies in the heart of the prestigious business and commercial districts, a few minutes from historical attractions such as the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Temple of Heaven, the Silk Market, and modern marvels such as the ‘Water Cube’ National Swimming Centre and ‘Bird’s Nest’ Olympic Stadium which captured the world’s imagination during the Summer Olympics of 2008. ... more   less
