Overall was nearly very good in hotel! But location not so close to shopping, restaurant area and center of the city. Meet some guys from Malorosiya in restaurant|bar staff (reposition here from Kiev Fairmont because the crisis).

Dear Igor C,
Thank you for your wonderful review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us but its unfortunate that the location did not meet your needs. We are conveniently located to the subway station which takes you only a few stops to Beijings major attractions and shopping areas. We hope you do have a chance to stay with us again and thank you for youre review.

This is really a very good hotel. Staff were very friendly, helpful, knowledgable and efficient. The Chinese restaurant was pretty ordinary, especially the Peking Duck.
The location of this hotel was not very convenient for shoppers. It was close to the Silk Market but a bit far from Wangfujing Shopping area. It will be great if the hotel can offer free shuttle bus to and from Wangfujing. It was not easy to call a taxi, especially during peak/after work hours.

Dear TEK8484,
Thank you for your review and compliments to our friendly and helpful team. We do apologize that the location did not meet your needs. Although we do not have a shuttle service to Wangfujing, there is a subway at the corner of our street which is 3 stops away from Wangfujing. Most guests do find this very easy and quick to all the tourist attractions near Forbidden City. We thank you for choosing us as your home away from home during your visit to Beijing and hope you do choose to stay with us again.

We based ourselves here for a 4-night stay in Beijing, before cruising the 3-Gorges, taking a club-floor room.

What a superb hotel, made all the more special for us due to an unexpected upgrade to a suite. Our son would have been so envious as it was larger than his apartment in London!

The room was superb, with way more space than we required; the bed beautifully comfortable; the bathroom large and supplied with the best toiletries; the walk-in large enough for the spare bed! I could go on.

The club floor is excellent value, offering a very good breakfast, high tea and evening canapés in the rate. After our days of sight-seeing, a drink and canapés were all that we needed before bed.

The staff were wonderfully friendly and helpful, and their English more than adequate, and certainly better than my non-existent Mandarin! The hotel's location was very good for us, though we didn't really walk anywhere, other than to the Silk Market close by.

Why stay anywhere else?

This hotel is located few hundred meter from the Silk marked and the #1 street in Beijing but still in a very silent location. The downside of the location is that nothing happens here in the night. The rooms are spacious and have absolutely everything you will ever need. The breakfast is worth telling about to a price you normally not will pay yourself...

You will probably find nothing to complain about which the hotel can improve on, except for the prices on everything.

The speed of internet varies from fair to "back in the old 128 kps modem days"... But you can't blame the hotel for that...

Room Tip: High floot

Stayed for two nights on my most recent trip to Beijing. Made the choice to stay here based on the great rate being offered that included breakfast and I was very pleased with my choice.

The location is very good, convenient to the CBD and metro station. Hotel is very nice and modern a squeaky clean. Room was spacious, well equipped, quiet and very nice. Slept great as the bed and pillows were very nice as were the towels in the bathroom.

Enjoyed breakfast in the room (only a RMB50 upcharge) which was nice. The lobby lounge was a nice place to have a drink in the evening with some live music.

Very good value in Beijing for a 5-star hotel. I will be back.

Hotel is located in a financial district, so its quite at night. We arrived at the Beijing airport really early in the morning, so the traffic was still light, it took about 45 min to get to the hotel. The hotel lobby was like any other 5 star hotels, high ceiling, clean and quite. The room at the Signature suite was in good size, the amenity and the quality were in accord with that of the Fairmont high standard. The indoor swimming pool were fabulous, the steam room, however, has hair on the floor and when we went back the next day, the hair were still there. Service was excellent, from the front desk to the house keeping. We ate at the Chinese restaurant several times, the food were mediocre. We hired cars from the hotel for 2 days to show us around the city, both days driver were as good as tour guides, we found it so much easier this way than trying to hail a cab in the city of Beijing. All in all, this is a top quality hotel and they sure keep it up with it.

Dear Shaobao,
Great review! Thank you for your kind words regarding the service of the hotel from the front desk to the housekeeping team. I definitely agree that taxis are quite difficult in this city so the car service you booked is highly recommended. Perhaps on your next visit, you will have the opportunity to try our steakhouse on the 2nd floor called "The Cut", notoriously known for having the best steak in Beijing. Thank you again for your review and hope to deliver the same memorable experience on your next visit.

I stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of a 2-week business trip. The room was clean and spacious, with a comfy bed, nice couch and work space, and a lovely bathroom (although I was not overly fond of the high tech toilet). The bathrobe was cozy. I ate breakfast there very morning and there was ample choice. I also had room service twice and it was very good. The staff were excellent. The location was also convenient for me - close to the building where I had meetings as well as for being a base for sightseeing.
