4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

This was our last stop in China and we decided to treat ourselves to a bit of luxury. The hotel reception is very grand and our room was large, clean and comfortable. We didn't eat at the hotel. We used the pool which was really cold, I'm not sure what was wrong. The staff were all really helpful. The hotel... More

Chose this hotel for the brand and the price offered. It has got a very imperial feel and does justice if you are looking for a cultural yet comfortable experience. It is not the modern feel of a five star but we were looking for something more cultural. The pool and the changing rooms definitely need upgrading. John is an... More

I have travelled China for 16 long years and have never really bothered to review any hotel as it's always been so so. This time was different. It is my first time in Beijing. Had work in nearby Hebei and needed to spend 2 nights in Beijing. I booked this hotel after experiencing Raffles Singapore and Manila. After booking it... More

I chose this hotle because of its brand reputation and good location. The staff did their best to assist me as soon as I checked in and purchased a local cell phone card for me. They also offered me an alternative mobile adapter with no delay!

We spent most of our time in Beijing staying at a hotel in a hutong. We extended our stay and our hotel couldn't accommodate us for our last night so we decided to upgrade and relocate closer to the Tianemin/Forbidden City area. Thus, the Raffles. Great convenient tourist location, upscale old school reputation and ambition, and rooms that are large... More

I have made a reservation through hotels.com. I wanted to try a hotel that was owned locally. The reviews were excellent, the hotel looked beautiful and well maintained.

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.
