“My go-to hotel in Beijing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

I think highly of the Shangri-la Chain, and the China World in Beijing is no exception. I feel at home every time I walk into that (ok, slightly-over-glitzed) lobby. The beds are comfortable, the amenities are very good, the breakfast buffet is second-to-none in China, check-in is warm and efficient, the belldesk is on-the-spot but not pushy, the concierge is keen to please, the guest relations staff are charming, room service is fast and dependable, the internet works. The location on the airport side of town, over the China World Mall and Guomao subway stop, is excellent. It will soon be time to redecorate the rooms, but I hope they don't change that lobby.

I could not speak more highly of a hotel than that of the China World in Beijing. Any request we made was handled immediately and with concern. I celebrated my birthday while staying there. At dinner, I was greeted with balloons and a special cake. The wait staff asked if the chef could prepare a special soup that is typically served for birthday celebrations. Of course I accepted. In addition they presented me with a handmade birthday card signed by staff and took pictures which they later emailed to me. This was all done simply because my husband just mentioned he wanted a nice table for us and our six accompanying guest. It was clearly above and beyond. What a wonderful evening it turned out to be! In addition, the hotel is gorgeous and the amenities are many. This was the last leg of our three week visit to China and truly it was a great way to end our fabulous experience!

Room Tip: Try to request access to the Horizon Club.( concierge level). Breakfast is quiet,elegant, and lovel...

china world hotel is one of the finest hotels in asia i have ever stayed. I have been visiting this hotel over 10 years and each time it gets better. Caddie and ALL The Horizon Club staff is exceptional at making sure that all needs are fulfilled and take great care in getting to know each guest personally. They are profficient at assisting professional business travellers in every manner. Additionally, Leon in the Concierge office is fantastic at arriving at practical solutions to all issues within his area and often comes up with unique arrangements that assist each visitor.

Room Tip: ask for the side of the building where there is no construction outside

This was my first visit to Beijing. The China World Hotel was outstanding with excellent service and very clean rooms. I would certainly stay there again if my travels take me to Beijing again. Elena greeted me when I arrived. Walked me through an easy process and remembered my name each time I came to the lobby.

Room Tip: Facing the front of the hotel is a better view. Ask for this.

We arrived after a long flight - tired, grimy, sleepy. We entered a huge flower filled lobby - check in was reasonably quick. The room was lovely - with a huge window looking out on the lit up building and crowded streets below.
The breakfast buffet the next day was one of the best we have had on our many travels. Both Chinese and Western dishes, rounded off with yummy pastries and fruit. The service was excellent - the staff spoke English , and were without exception, helpful and courteous.
This place is a good base from which to explore the mad rush and many sights of Beijing.
