“Enjoyed Our Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

We had a great stay at the Penta Beijing. We got two rooms for our family of 4 at reasonable rates. Rooms are a good size, very clean with modern simple decor, value for money. Linens good quality and beds very comfortable, we had great sleeps. Our rooms faced the city on the 15th floor, no noise. Bathrooms are small but quite serviceable. Breakfasts very good. Restaurant food and bar drinks on offer were excellent. Free bikes to take around city (just need to pay deposit). We hired all 4 and had a great time. Excellent location close to Tian An Men, Forbidden City, and Temple of Heaven and some good restaurants. Hotel service was good. When we go back to Beijing we will stay here again. Thanks Penta!

I stayed at the Penta Hotel in May 2011. Then it was just beginning it's upgrade process. At that time the lobby was a vast expanse of marble with a few random chairs. Jump ahead to October, 2012. The lobby is completely new: great dinning area, bar, super morning buffet, plenty of chairs to hang out in. Plus pool tables! And the new gym is also quite welcome.

Nearby are fun places to eat, two malls, and a terrific Foot Massage place at the end of the block.

A couple of minor complaints: the drinks are very pricey and on the small side. I was afraid my Scotch might evaporate before I could drink it. The bathroom is very small and the lighting over the sink makes one look like something out of an Ed Wood movie.

Overall, I really like this hotel and was still enthusiastic about it after a two week stay.

Room Tip: I stayed on both sides of the hotel and prefer the side that looks out at the back of the buildings...

Dear Guest

We appreciate your comments and are happy to know that you overall enjoyed your stay at the hotel, nevertheless trust that the drinks here in penta are not supposed to be on the small size at all!, I apologize for this and rest assured that we will be more than glad to offer you a proper drink upon your next visit.

Merry christmas to you!

Just spent 2 nights in Beijing and stayed at The Penta Hotel. Great value at 72 British Pounds per room per night including breakfast and free WIFI in lobby. Booked direct with the hotel as they had a 2 night special advertised. Hotel has just had a full refurbishment (some rooms still being done) we were lucky to stay in a refurbished room. The room is a modest size with everything you need, safe, coffee maker, bottles of free water, flat screen TV, Ipod dock. All very modern. The down side was the size of the bathroom. Very small, you have to go into the room and then shut the door before you can use the toilet or the shower. Although the bathroom is small, there is everything in there that you need, great shower, hairdryer and supplies of shampoo etc. Aircon in the room works well but very noisy during the night.

The breakfast buffet is the best I've had in a long time, fresh breads, cooked to order eggs and a range of Asian and Western products. You can fill up on breakfast which will last you through till the evening.

As you enter the hotel it is not very obvious where the Reception is, it is actually to the Right of the main door. Staff very helpful and asked plenty of questions about what you were planning to do during your stay.

Great location - 100m from the subway, 15 minute walk from Tianaman Square and Forbidden City. The hotel is next to a shopping complex with a supermarket on the ground floor and numerous cafes ranging from KFC, Pizza Hut, Starbucks and Asian delights.

If you needed a taxi the hotel has a taxi rank

I loved my 3 night stay here at Pentahotel in Beijing. It is close to a lot of things you'd want to do downtown Beijing. It reminds me of a hipper Novetel or a Cosmopolitan in Toronto. The room we booked was taken by the time we got there and they had no problem accommodating us in an upgraded suite. Our breakfast was included daily which was a buffet. Very good choices of food from fresh fruit and yogurts to freshly made omelettes, bacon, fries, cereals, Beijing bread and lots of pastries. There is something for everyone to eat here. There is free access to wifi in the hotel lobby and any one of their restaurants. The lounge serves up homemade noodles and chicken or lamb skewers to live for. The bar serves half price cocktails and drinks from 5-7pm..YUM. Our room overlooked the city which was nice. Complimentary water bottles every morning always started my day out right. Overall, very good hotel...had no complaints here.

Room Tip: Try to book a room overlooking the city. Otherwise, you'll be looking at the back of buildings.

We booked this for a holiday during National week and had no troubles getting a room. The bed was comfortable as were the pillows and doona. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the staff on front desk had very good English skills. There was a mix up for some snacks we ordered and they handled it very well and very apologetic. We ended up spending time at their bar as it was the best we could find in Beijing (ie, the drinks weren't deliberately watered down for the foreigners). The breakfast was vast and very well prepared. There was everything one could imagine (and more) for a great feast before heading out to see the sights of Beijing. highly recommended!

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a non-smoking floor if you're not use to China's out-dated smoking pol...

A very discreet hotel in the heart of Beijing, with a very classy reception.
The rooms are small but comfortable, but the bathroom was a little dated, with cracks in the tiles and on the walls. The minibar was empty and there wasn't any information or a room service menu in the room. However, the buffet breakfast was fantastic, offering both Chinese and Western breakfasts. Overall a very nice stay, a little dissapointing in terms of the services in the room.

My daughter and I stayed at this hotel for 12 nights. Every staff member was helpful, cordial and friendly. The managers, Jeraldine and Jeffrey were great. The buffet breakfast was very nice. Eggs made to order!! It was wonderful having access to a gourmet food court through the 5th floor at the New World Shopping Center. ATM machines right across the street. The subway is right on the corner only 3 minutes from hotel. I would stay here again!!!

Room Tip: there is construction going on. We had to change rooms from the 10th floor which was very noisy betw...
