“Perfect to visit the Forbidden City”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

From the Rolls Royce at the airport to a late arrival at the hotel we had a fantastic experience including a dinner in the Imperial suite where one of our friend was staying. Perfect service with the staff caring to your every need although sometimes it is a bit difficult to be understood. the food was excellent and we had a Peking Duck after many years. Crispy skin and delicious meat.
It is a perfect place to visit the Forbidden city and the city center monuments. It is important as the traffic in Beijing can be very bad.

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the Beijing suites, fronting the building. Duplex suites are also very comfortab...

This is a very nice hotel, but the best thing is the location - very close to shopping (admittedly geared to tourists), and to the major tourist sites - can walk in any direction and find something interesting and historical. Also easy to get to and from, and very helpful concierge. However while I was there, the hotel was undergoing some retail space reconstruction which made the business rooms and the lobby very noisy during the day. Nice restaurants.

The hotel was billed as a luxury five star elegant hotel. When I hear this I expect that all my wants and needs will be immediately be attended to...sadly they weren't. I stayed here for 4 nights. I was on the concierge level on the 13th floor, the room was very avererge as was the service. The staffed was either disinterested, inefficient or worse yet...rude, I haven't decided which. An example was one afternoon my son wanted to order a salad while I was having tea in the lounge, when it was delivered by room service, they refused to allow it, saying "the smell of the food might offend other people"...it was a SALAD (and we were the only ones in the room!). The exception to the poor service was the head concierge, Mary, who was lovely and went out of her way to see that everything was ok.

Another problem is at the front door...it is virtually impossible for them to get a taxi. We waited on average 20 to 30 minutes. One more point about the rooms... The AC is not very strong...I requested for someone to come look at it...I'm still waiting!

All and all no one at this hotel seemed to care wether I was enjoying my stay or not...next time I'll stay at a Marriott if I want this kind of impersonal service!

Room Tip: People are allowed to smoke in their rooms...it took 3 tries to find a room that didn't smell!

Have stayed at the Peninsula three times now on an annual basis for business. Rooms and facilities are very good and, being in the Wanfujing district, close to lots of shopping opportunities. Excellent local food directly across the road, although the food in the hotel's restaurants is also very good. Entirely consistent with what one would expect from the Peninsula brand.

Stayed here with my son in June 2012. This is a great hotel that serves excellent breakfast. The rooms are in good shape, although a bit on the small side. The service is impeccable although some staff at the reception have a mediocre command of English. The pool is nice and the service and amenities are good.

Would definitely stay here again.
