“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

The front desk, most of the bellhops, and the concierge speak English. Most of them are very formal and professional when helping. Not overly friendly like the hotel I stayed at in Shanghai, but that's not a big deal. I was still able to get the information I needed from the staff.

The room I reserved was the King bed superior room. The cost per night on Orbitz.com was $74.04 per night, and I stayed for 5 nights. There is a gym, a spa, a hot tub, and a pool at this hotel.

The hotel was clean. The drainage for the sink kept making a noise. The water did have a slight smell of smoke or something. The bed was nice and comfortable and there were no stains on the sheets.

This location is about 5 minutes from the pedestrian street and about 8 minutes from the night street market with the scorpions, starfish, snakes, and other good stuff. This hotel is also about 15 to 20 minutes from Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City.

I would recommend staying at this hotel. It was clean for a great price and a great location.

During my trip to Beijing I was making the best of my time and made sure to see all the sites this wonderful city has to offer. To do so I wanted a hotel that was conveniently located and could grant me access to all these sites and still keep my comfort of my hotel room within reach.

The Crowne Plaza Beijing Wangfujing has a great location and it was very nice to see all sites being so nearby. The concierge was very helpful and even spoke english. Sadly every time i did ask for a taxi i noticed I was always given the expensive "Black Limo" taxi which for me also looking at my budget was not always what i wanted. Shouldn't I be asked an option?

The breakfast offers were good but nothing really special or anything that "blew me away" and I was hoping to see some great local treats in there, but sadly no. Even though some girls were very polite, smiles were not that easy to see. Is everybody unhappy to work on the holiday or is this just their attitude?

Going for a coffee in the beautiful attrium which reminds me back in the contemporary art neuvo style, i liked looking around and having real daylight come donw on me while sitting down. The service was not very attentive, i almost wanted to the waitress myself to be seen and receive my coffee. Again a question, would they not like to have costumers?

As for the price and the room, I have no real complaints. The pricing is very reasonable and the rooms are clean and tidy and provide all you need. Ofcourse it is noticeable that the hotel is dated but still it weights of to the great benefit of location and still quality of Food and Drinks.

If the staff would just be a bit more attentive and pay more attention then my stay would have been perfect. It did not affect my trip to Beijing in whole but just like to remind as a frequent traveller that service is the most important part of a guest experience. Would I go back again? Sure, why not! Would i consider other options if i return? Yes, why not!!! (I was not convinced this was the bst stay) but i allow the hotel another chance when i return to leave a good impression.

This hotel is well situated in Beijing - close to all of the tourist locales, as well as reasonably close to business venues. The hotel is older, but the rooms were renovated approx 5 years ago (I believe). The food is great (great continental breakfast), and the staff are keen to please.

This was my second stay here, and I will keep coming back!

Room Tip: Rooms on the West side can see the forbidden city

This is a well located hotel positioned conveniently for the main Wangfujing Street shops and amenities. It is about 20 minutes’ walk from the Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City. It is best to visit Tiananmen Square first then walk across the road to Forbidden City as the Forbidden City exit is a good distance back to Tiananmen sq.
The main lobby area of the hotel is spacious and pleasant. It is comfortable to sit and relax with a drink or have a meal. English is quite well spoken at the hotel. I found that the reception team, concierge and door staff to be fantastic, better than any other hotel I have stayed at in a non English speaking country. They were all very kind and helpful and had good language skills. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they were very pleased to help us whatever our query or problem. If I was going to visit Beijing again I would choose this hotel, for that reason.
We did stay at the hotel twice on our trip, the first time in a king club room which was lovely and fresh looking, the second time was at a standard room which was a little bit jaded, I suspect that some of the rooms will be needing a facelift soon. Perhaps this is already underway as our club room was very nice.
Food and drink at the hotel are quite expensive; however they are at all hotels we stayed at in China. Wine is particularly expensive throughout China, as is Western food. The quality of the hotel food is very good and the serving staff pleasant.

Spent four nights at this hotel during a business trip. Ideally located at Wangfujing, a main shopping street in Beijing. The hotel is quite dated and an number of negatives could be stated e.g. carpet stains, dirt on furniture etc. Really could do with a thorough steam clean. The lobby lounge and café were ok. Staff are quite attentive, especially the check-in staff. Internet is not free in-room, and costs CNY150 per day for access. Quite expensive, as in other hotels of this standard internet is often free. There is a McDonalds and 7/11 not too far away - if I had taken both the internet and breakfast package it would have added around 50% extra to my room rate. The design of the hotel means that half of the rooms face an internal atrium. I would prefer a view to the street. Concierge was very helpful arranging taxis and cars for airport transfers and business meetings. In general, I think this hotel struggles to uphold the Crowne Plaza brand standard and I wouldn't be surprised if significant renovations are undertaken in the near future. If location is important, this will override the state of the hotel.

Room Tip: If you prefer a fresh air outlook (if such is possible in Beijing), then ask for a room facing the s...

It was a good choice to choose crowne plaza during my stay in Beijing. Check in at the hotel was good, the staff were friendly and helpful. But the internet was very slow and needs to be improved. Concierge was very knowledgeable and overall location is good.

This is my third time going to china and it was the best I've experienced so far. Throughout the duration of my stay, the service was impeccable and constant. In the end I was almost sorry to leave.

Upon arrival, I found myself in a valley of smiles. The service staff made me feel welcome and at ease. At first I felt apprehensive due to the fact that I was from Europe and was expecting to have communication problems with the staff there. These concerns were eliminated when one of the staff named Deborah explained everything i had available and helped me gain internet access quickly. Despite being of very young age to be working in the service line (about 20 i presume), she spoke fluent english and ensured my smooth transition in paperwork. It was literally hassle-free. I totally did not expect this level of professionalism and this little surprise brightened up my day since i was put through a long and arduous overnight flight the day before.

I stayed in the Executive Suite and it was clean and quiet. The most conducive environment to rest, relax and prepare for meetings. The bathroom was spacious and clean too! The bed was the epitome of comfort, being hard in the right places and the comforter maintained equilibrium with the cold temperature of the suite.

The location of the hotel was strategic. Beijing train station and Wangfujing subway station are just a stone's throw away. Furthermore major landmarks such as Forbidden City can be accessed on foot.

Unfortunately, since i was on official business I did not have ample time to fully utilise the gym and the spa. But I can clearly tell that the facilities are well maintained and safe to operate.

In succinct summary, the staff of Crowne Plaza Beijing Wangfujing did a wonderful job in making my stay enjoyable, relieving me of stress given the rigour of business meetings. Excellent choice of personnel, they really know how to make you feel at home.
