“China World Hotel was fantastic!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

We stayed at the China World Hotel for four nights and it was a wonderful experience! The hotel is beautiful (especially the lobby), our room was very comfortable and the breakfast buffet was incredible! Everyone who works there from the bell men, the receptionists, elevator men, maids, restaurant staff and especially the concierge staff made our stay at this hotel fantastic! There is a concierge named Dirk who went out of his way to make sure that we had a wonderful time in Beijing. Dirk was so helpful, so kind and so genuine! I highly recommend staying at the China World Hotel for any type of Beijing visit!

We stayed at the the China World Hotel and really enjoyed our stay. The room was very nice and comfortable. We enjoyed our breakfasts and we also had a very good "traditional" dinner one night. We were very impressed with the staff. They made a point of recognizing us when we were in the lobby area and made us feel welcomed. Several times during our stay, they checked to make sure we were happy with the hotel. We were with a group of three other couples and had a guide, but the location is very good and central.

China World (part of the Shangri La Group) exudes traditional oriental opulence. Whilst its been superseded by newer 5 star internationally branded hotels in recent years, its still the hotel of choice for many visting dignitaries and local businessman. The lobby is a spacious hive of constant activity. The room I stayed in on the 7th floor was renovated, with a large bathroom and a good sized study desk. Theres a good breakfast spread at The Scene Cafe.

One important thing to note is its prime location, being situated at the heart of the Business District, connected to a shopping complex with good access to the subway below. In traffic congested Beijing, this matters greatly.

Room Tip: ask for a refurbished room

I remember the first time in China I stayed in this hotel. Had an amazing experience.

Since then China World Summit Wing opened and became my first choice.

Returned to China World - it aged a lot and lacks the service offering provided by its new expansion.

It is rather expensive compare to what one would get from China World Summit Wing.

So this might be confusing for most: China World Hotel is the old block facing the main road. China World Summit Wing is the tall (tallest in Beijing?) hotel opposite the CCTV headquarter.

One of the best I had been. Very confortable and the staff is so much polite, perfect english spoke by them, helpfull in a city that almost don't speak it.
The breakfast is excellent and variable, the traditional and new join with success. The rooms are so great.
The best was the concert on the lobby at afternoon.

I cannot say enough about how pleased i was with my stay at the China World Hotel in Beijing. My stay was from May 16 -24 2013. My room was extremely comfortable and always kept clean and neat by a great housekeeping staff. The front desk, concierge, and general staff located all through the lobby and elevators were always available to answer any questions and always greeted me and my group with a smile. Not to mention the stunning musical entertainment that took place daily in the lobby area. I wish i could mention several of the employees by name but i lost my paperwork with that information.
