Sunworld Hotel Beijing
Ranked #85 of 6,568 Hotels in Beijing
Reviewed June 18, 2013

I recently spend 5 days in Beijing at the Sunworld hotel and was happily surprised it was better than I expected. The room was nice and large and very clean and the bathroom and its amenities were good. It is in a good location with great shopping just around the corner. There is a 7 Eleven right across the street for snacks if you wanted them. The only issue I had was I think they make their OJ in the morning from a powder and I don't think they use bottled water because after being their for 3 days I got sick. I was super careful about using bottled water and not eating salads etc. and I had been in Hong Kong for a whole week prior to this but this threw me. I thought it was real OJ after I had a very small glass of it and never had any after that so just be careful with that. Also of note was the fact they offer a buffet breakfast but don't wash the eggs which was very off putting especially in light of the Avian flu outbreak that is in China.

I would stay here again but wouldn't eat there.

We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights, it is well locates as mention in the earlier reviews...its quite close to Wangfujing , which is the main shopping area of Beijing, there is a 24hrs Mac near by and just across the street is a 7-11, there is a Chinese Restaurant next to it and we found the food good.
The rooms wee decent size by the toilets were small, and the toilet sliding door did not have and lock and the door had a see through glass. The hotel was well maintained and we did not have any complains. The Breakfast has limited Western food and more of Chinese dishes and we had to eat almost the same thing everyday... this is something the hotel management needs to look into.
The hotel Staff were kind and helpful.

This hotel is walking distance to the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square as well as Wangfujing Avenue shopping. The Dong Hua Men Night Market is also a 7-10 minute walk away and worth a visit. You'll see the world's largest Apple store on your walk there which thrilled my son. A 7/11 is across the street and the noodle restaurant next door is good. The breakfast was good but not great. Da Dong Peking Duck restaurant is within walking distance also and was our favorite meal in China. Staff's English is okay. Free wifi in the lobby but not the rooms. It's clean and comfortable.

This hotel was well located close to one of the main shopping streets for those who want to shop. It is also located close Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City. The Metro is at the end of the street and is a good experience if you want to try some local travel. Night markets are not far away as well. The breakfast selection is excellent and our group tastes were well and truly catered for. There is a 7/11 store across the street and several restaurants within easy walking distance. We were part of a tour group so not sure of prices but would certainly recommend this hotel.

Easy walking to the Forbidden City. Rooms medium sized and clean. Limited English spoken. The breakfast was buffet but lacked in selection and quantity. There are many street eating places in the vicinity. For authentic fare (& being hassled) don't get too close to the Forbidden City. We were lucky and found an excellent street sitdown eatery not far from hotel ( also served two types of local beer: a premium and a budget which we had on recommendation and found it very palatable) Overall a good place to stay when in Beijing

Great Hotel for a seven to ten day stay in Beijing.
Location is fantastic! In front of the hotel is a 7/11 together with a modern day bakery (coffee,croissants...),a small fruit store as well. Metro close by, but use a Taxi- cheap.
A seven minute walk is a shopping street with huge malls where you can find restaurants with local food as well as western food..fast food, Subway etc.
Tienanmen square as well as the forbidden city close by. 15-20min walk.

Staff friendly, English okay.
Breakfast has to improve..

Room Tip: Ask for a room on one of the higher floors. (Above floor 9.)

We were very pleased with our recent stay at Sunworld Beijing Hotel, which was my second time staying there.

The location is great, with plenty of places to eat within very easy walking distance (including the cafeteria-style place across the street which was very cheap and actually pretty tasty), plus convenience stores and ATMs. It's a short drive to Tianamen Square, the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven and other tourist attractions.

Our room was very clean and quite nicely furnished, and we were able to get a non-smoking room which is always preferred but not always available in China. Of course we had the typically hard Chinese beds, but they were comfortable enough and the staff was very happy to accommodate our request for extra pillows. The a/c worked great, and hot water in the walk-in shower was abundant. Our room included a safe, fridge, mini-bar, electric kettle (complete with Nescafe packets!), complimentary bottled water and free wi-fi. The television had 2 English-speaking channels (HBO and CNN).

The breakfast buffet in the hotel's diner was above average, with many western and Chinese options available. We also had dinner one night in the hotel's restaurant; we were very happy with the food and service and the price was quite reasonable.

The staff were friendly and efficient, and could speak a small amount of English.

The Sunworld is a great hotel for business travelers or tourists. I would recommend it without reservation and would definitely stay there again for any future travel to Beijing.
