“Home Away from Home in Far East!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

I stayed 5 days/4 nights in the Beijing Regent and was impressed with the comfortable, gorgeous rooms, which create a nice home away from home. There were usually around 6 small water bottles placed in the room each day, and I found extras on my way out in the morning by the concierge desk, so I never had to venture out to the convenience store across the street to buy any. There is a bank with ATM just around the corner, and you can exchange US dollars at the front desk if need be - without an additional charge, so it equates to being about the same as going to the ATM. The bed/shower are fantastic, internet worked well (adding GoTrusted security as well); although the thermostat was a bit finicky. I had laundry service and dry cleaning, for a pretty penny, but it is a 5-star hotel so you get what you pay for. There's a golf umbrella in the room for use on rainy days, which came in very handy! And a Starbucks just outside. I would not advise taking the subway, although there is one below the hotel, as I hear it is incredibly over crowded. Room service includes a variety of Western / Italian options, which is great if you're getting a little tired of rice for us vegetarians :) Highly recommend!

This is a great location for tourists and some business travellers. It is in the heart of a very high end shopping district. If you want to buy an exotic sports car you won't even need a cab to get there. With a Bentley/Rolls Royce dealership in the lobby and a Ferrari dealer just outside, the tone is set for the neighborhood.

The hotel did all the basics right. The check-in was welcoming and efficient, the room was terrific, the public areas well appointed and the in-house restaurants were varied and excellent. What stood out for me was the breakfast. A huge buffet offering a wonderful selection of Chinese, Japanese and yes, Western breakfast delights. Everything was well labeled for the unfamiliar. It saddens me to see so many westerners pass up a top-notch oriental breakfast for their familiar fare and never realize what they are missing.

Stayed 2 nights there. Everything is luxury. Service, food, room - no complains. Took a tour via their agen - price seems to be not very exaggerated. Location was convenient for me.
Room rate looks reasonable: 1,087.50 CNY plus Tax.

Centrally located by a subway station and access to Beijing's swift, clean, lucid underground system. Forbidden City is easily walkable but don't get lost as the locals mostly only know Chinese - tho' I did get coralled by two groups of arts students whose English was quite good.

Located in upmarket area with abundance of trendy European brandshops - eg Burberry and JaguarLandrover.

Hotel has many fine facilities. TV options quite limited - certainly by comparison with Bangkok and Manila.

Breakfast was a bit limited - somewhat based on western style deep-fried junk but I did persuade staff to dish out a delicious chicken noodle soup. Otherwise chicken was not available. Don't think I saw boiled or steamed rice and definitely no jacket potatoes.

Neither this nor the other ultra expensive hotel on my package (Merchant Court Swissotel, Singapore) could match the cuisine of the cheapest I have visited (Ibis Huamark, Bangkok - now 4 Seasons) - tho' they both did provide suitable baths (Beijing's being the best). As often in life there was an inverse relation between cost and quality!
Serving staff were pretty unhelpful and for a while I was wondering where I would be permitted to sit!

We visited this hotel for tourist purposes only and we thought it was perfect! The location was ideal--plenty to walk to and a short cab ride to anywhere we wanted to go! Cabs are VERY inexpensive (less than 5 USD for up to 30 minutes away) and plentiful. The food at the hotel was delicious and the service with the front desk and concierge was great! Having a modern hotel was a nice break after a chaotic day in the city! I'd highly recommend this hotel!

Located on an upscale shopping street & with ample grounds to buffer street noise, rooms here are large and modern. Restaurants are appealing. Staff tries to please. We were in residence for 5 days, and had no complaints. Location relatively central.

Spent a week here in Sept and it was really excellent. Large, well-appointed room with a bathroom that should be in the design magazines. Very efficient, helpful staff. Myriad of health club options. We were lucky enough to get upgraded, which included 24/7 use of the 17th floor lounge, free drinks and fine food at happy hour. Easy walk to Forbidden City, shopping etc. Only negative was the wine was below average in quality and above average in price.

Room Tip: Get a high floor away from street noise.
