Good place to stay, conveniently located near the famous SILK STREET Shopper's paradise... Very closely located to the Forbidden City & Tiananmen Square... Nice and clean, Breakfast has lots of options. We were entertained very well even when we arrived @ 2 am in the morning...

Good place to stay, the only inconvenience is it is not close to shopings, the only close market is the silk street market which is 10 min walk. Nice and clean, the continental breakfast is good. Try to exchange curency at the hotel reception at 608 better than on the market for 600

Dear Walid C,

Thank you for your review of Fairmont Beijing. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. I'm sorry to hear that you found the proximity to shopping centers inconvenient. Within a 15 minute walking distance is the Silk Market as well as YinTai Shopping mall, and Guomao shopping malls. I hope our concierge will be able to give you a detailed description of all the places you wish you visit upon your next trip to Beijing. Hope to see you again, soon!

The Fairmont Beijing hotel was fabulous! The staff were especially kind, helpful and very accommodating! If you need help on getting around Beijing or want to know the places to go ask for Joe Hoe! He helped us out so much and is very thoughtful and kind.
Everything about the rooms were wonderful from the beds to the heated floors in the bathrooms! They have several places to eat in the hotel and all were very good! I can't say enough about the hotel and the staff! They made my stay in Beijing perfect!

We stayed at the Fairmont Beijing for 4 nights on special rates and have never had such a lovely and comfortable base while traveling. The accommodation and service is amazing, you feel relaxed and pampered from the moment you enter. It was a lovely contrast to the sometimes frenetic center of Beijing and helped us recharge for our action packed days.

The location is in the business district but is only 3 stops direct from Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. Yonganli Station is a 2 minute walk from the hotel and the Beijing subway is very efficient and information is in both English and Chinese. Cabs are easy to get but 2 out of the 3 times we had to get out our phone maps to tell the driver exactly where to go. In contrast it took us about 20 minutes door to door to get to the gate of the Forbidden City. Wanfujing is even closer. Nanlogouxiang and Tiantan are about the same commute. There are very good restaurants a short walk away and convenience stores, cafes and ATMs nearby as well. In short, it's in the business district but is by no means the sticks.

Our room was not ready before Check-In time but I was told to go to the Spa Lounge where it was quiet and they gave me a nice spot, internet access and served me tea. The staff tended to me frequently to see if I needed anything.

Our room was perfect in every way. Room size is big, bed soft and fluffy, view beautiful, bath luxurious and huge. Little touches that made it extra special were daily apples, beautiful tea set and nespresso coffee machine, free wifi and high speed internet, a TV in the bathroom, water bottles, tea and coffee and toiletries refreshed twice a day and on request, turn down service. We didn't use the free BMW bike rental or yoga gear usage but that was also available to us.

I can't wait to be able to use this hotel again.

The staff and the service was excellent! The manager of the front desk walked with us to the Silk Market and assisted us with prices on our purchases. He even took our purchases back and had them placed in our room! The service in the restaurant was very good and the food was cooked beautifully as ordered. The restaurants and the bar were a bit pricey, but in a 5-star hotel it didn't surprise me! The music in the lobby bar was exceptional and very enjoyable. The rooms were very comfortable with heated floors in the bathroom and draperies that open with the touch of a button. I would recommend this hotel. :)

We stayed for 3 nights in Beijing, this is a 5 star hotel , the rooms are just incredible, the bathtub in the middle of the room and with a glass is amazing, great amanitties, is a ver y luxury property and very good service, .Its a little overpriced, . The only issues i found is that the music in the bar ends at 10:30 pm , just when everybody is arriving. Then the bar deads.
There is no free wifi unless you subscribe to the fairmint club there. Thats not nice in a 5+ star.
And in the breakfast buffete almost nobody had napkins. Everyone was standing up taking napkins or asking for them and very fregquently and in all tables waiters removed your plates and glasses if you stand up for more food and without permission, this made several people angry. Besides that if you can stay there, pricey yes..Check in was flawles but a big line at checkout time, 9 am, 3 from the staff making theyre best anyway, maybe rush hour.
Location in front silk market very good.

Room Tip: ask for a room with the tub with a glass next to the bath, amazing room.

Lovely hotel, beautiful big room and helpful staff. Good value for hotel but food/bev and spa costs overpriced by China standards but quality very good. Excellent pool and fitness centre. Easy access to subway and Silk Market but better suited to business travel than tourism as traffic.
