The good

Great hotel, modern decor, situated 2 minutes from the tube station (Line 8, Guozai Meisui) taking the tube is much better than the cab as Beijing could be very congested at rush hours. Major attractions are mostly a few stops away.

The bad

The Wifi kept loosing connection and it was a major letdown
As the hotel is situated by the main road, we could hear cars honking at around 8a.m though we stayed on 10th floor.

We had a view of the forbidden city from our room, the room was much bigger than what we expected too. It was generally a good experience for the price we paid. The hotel was in a very good location, clean, and had okay-ish staff.
The breakfast was not great.

check in and check out is a nightmare, stuff does not know english. They took a deposit which was not returned. For a five star hotel the stuff should be more professional. During the check out the stuff lady at the desk did not know english and told us we did not paid what we do when we came, then she changed it but a deposit of 1466 is overcharged.

Room had a great view of the city. Wide selection of food to choose from for breakfast. We could hold our luggage there as we were too early for check in which was great. Staff are helpful and could speak enough English. Lobby is beautiful. Highly recommend.

It was my first time in Beijing, but not my firt time in China. Room was very large with two Queen size beds. Very nice bathroom with seperate shower. Plenty of hot water, fullly stocked bathroom with anything you needed. TV with cable was good and had several English language channels with other languages as well. We had the breakfast package buffet for the three days we were there, food nice and plentyful. there was some variety but I have to admit by the end of the third day we had tried almost all and we were getting tired of it. They were very helpful in holding our luggage when we checked out at 12 noon till we left at 430pm to get our flight to Shanghai with no charge. Had many agents at the front desk who spoke very good English as well.

Would recommend or go back there to stay there in the future. Was very close to some great shopping in Beijing, Even my wife who is chinese liked it and she is picky.

I stayed at this hotel for 5 days/4 nights. Got a nice rate of 105€/night for a Club floor.
Check in was very quick and smooth.
Rooms are very big and nice. Very comfortable. The bathroom was nice with shower AND bath, although a bit old...
The lobby is very big and impressive.
I did regret the lack of international channels on satellite TV : only CNN and HBO were available...
I tried the foot massage service which decent but expensive, and I do not recommend.
Did have a peak at the pool but did not try it...
We made a 1 day trip to Great Wall for less than 30€... very nice and easy.
Breakfast is fairly good, but would never recommend having dinner at the buffet because it's extremely expensive and not worth it considering the wealth of good adresses in Beijing (check out the surroundings of lake Qianhai at night!!!).

But the best point about hte hotel is its location. Right on Wang Fu Jing, the main commercial street in Beijing. It's in the center of the town. About 10mn (walking) away from northern entrance of Forbidden City and Jingshan Park, and 15mn from Beihai Park. And it's about 30mn away from Tian An Men square.
If you like to do urban trekking, but being based on a nice 4* western-like (but Chinese) hotel I surely would recommend this place ! The only places I took a taxi to go to were the summer Palace and the Great Wall...

My fear is that anyone reading this review will think I'm a shill for the hotel, writing a fake positive review, as I only have good things to say...That's how much I liked the Prime Hotel.

I've been to Beijing before, so I understand the city, its people, and its hotels. I could not have been more happy with my stay at the Prime. The location is excellent, at the very north end of the Wangfujing shopping street. It's about a half-hour walk to Tiananmen square, shorter to the Forbidden City. Easy access to tons of shopping and eating, bustling with activity day and night. Certainly for a first-time visitor to Beijing, I couldn't think of a better area to stay in.

My room was big, quiet, very comfortable, and all amenities were in working order. A well-thought-out selection in the minibar, reasonably priced, and nice unexpected extras. I even used the hotel's laundry service, which was quick and did a great job. The TV had CNN, NHK, HBO, the Chinese equivalent of MTV, all 9 CCTV channels, as well as a bunch more. The bed was huge and very comfortable...A rarity in China. Most days, I went downstairs for breakfast at about 8:30 AM, and when I returned to my room about 45 minutes later, it had been made up already.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. I encountered none of the 'limited English' complaints voiced in previous reviews. Then again, I've made an effort to learn a bit of Mandarin, just to be a gracious guest in a foreign country. The conceirge desk was very capable (they helped me set up my China Mobile cell phone with no complaints or attitude), and the business center was able to help me check on a flight to Shanghai. Yes, internet access at 2 RMB/minute isn't cheap, but it's far from highway robbery, either, and is the going rate for high end hotels in Beijing. In USD, that's about $2.50 for ten minutes. Elevator operators stand ready to call the elevator down when they see you coming through the lobby, and the bellhops out front not only will call you a cab, but they even give you a card with the taxi number when you return, in case you accidentally forgot something in the car.

The breakfast buffet was comparable to others I've had in China and in the states: Perfectly fine, maybe better still. Chinese foods, as well as Western foods (even a selection of cereals for the Americans, and beans for the Brits. French toast and maple syrup, even! In China!). BTW: The place is CRAWLING with Americans and Europeans. Looked to me like they make up 70% or better of the clientele. There are a couple of lounges in the large open lobby where you can sit and have a drink, a smoke, or some tea...Whichever vice you happen to have.

Honestly, I can't think of a single complaint about the Prime Hotel. And I consider myself a pretty worldly traveller. Having booked through Expedia, I paid a premium rate for my room ($135 per night), but it was worth every penny, and by western standards, undoubtedly a bargain. To be sure of a similar experience next time, I would pay even more than that.

I recommend the Prime Hotel to anyone travelling to Beijing, and will not hesitate to stay there again, myself. Having found it through Tripadvisor, I even went to the trouble to take some photos, which I've posted here.

Just stayed at the Prime in Beijing. Excellent value - nice hotel/good location/excellent standards and service (if limited English spoken!- but thats China for you)
Only one real criticism - the pool and spa areas are dire!!! The pool room was cold,dirty and unwelcoming - (I was assured it was in use for guests but we decided against using it!) The spa needs a serious facelift - shabby and dark and unkempt with tatty carpets and furnishings. Massage was very good though.
If swimming and pampering are important aspects of your stay - dont stay here!!
Otherwise it was a lovely place to stay. Staff v friendly and wanting to help.

In our room, we could not open the window... but that doesn't mean they won't have any rooms where the windows might open. We were there in May when it was warm so always had the temp set to about 75 degrees Fahrenheit (they use Celsius so had to look up the equivalent) so if you just keep the thermo set at a decent temperature then you shouldn't have a problem with over heating since it's not just On/Off.

Yes, the deposit when you arrive at the reception is more than your booking approximately 25%. Basically they hold this amount on your credit card. During check out they check your room and the cancelled the hold amount. Then they charge you the actual amount + taxes + any extras. In my credit card only the final amount paid at check out was appeared.

I would definitely recommend taking an adaptor and if you're planning on using the swimming pool, take a swimming cap with you, as they will make you buy one otherwise.
