“What more can one expect? Perfection to its completion!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2012

To top off a wonderful journey through China we decided to stay at the Fairmont Beijing, ranked # 1 of Beijing hotels on Tripadvisor.
This outstanding hotel deserves this honour. Not a single moment have we been disappointed.
When you entered the hotel,they addressed you by our names in immaculate English. Immediately we felt welcome and when Xavier brought us to the Gold floor lounge, it was like coming home. The interior is warmly decorated and very cosy. The first thing I usually throw a glance at, is the library. to my astonishment I discovered some books by Youp van 't Hek, my favourite columnist (NRC Handelsblad).

We were immediately offered an excellent cappucino (yes they seemed to know that after a train ride of 5 hours we were in need of a cup of coffee.) We would go back to the Gold Lounge many times a day, for a drink, for afternoon tea, for the happy hour with canapés. Always we were being served with a big smile and a warm-hearted chat.

Right after our arrival we were brought to our suite on the 22nd floor. Again the room whispered 'Welcome!'. Beautiful bouquets of flowers, a welcome card on the desk, a lovely happy birthday wish and a nice small Chinese present., Chinese slippers waiting for you at the door.. it was all there.
But the piece the résistance of the suite definitely was the bathroom, with a window to the room (that can be shut off), an inbuild tv and a futuristic toilet. Go and experience it yourself :)

In the eveving we booked a table for two in The Cut, the upscale restaurant with the young but very creative Canadian Chef Marcus. He came to greet us personally and helped us with the choice of the menu and then he went off to his kitchen again, preparing the meal as we wanted to have it. Heavenly meal with in the end a birthday dessert offered by the chef.

The Willow Stream Spa is wonderful. We did not have any treatment this time, which I regret, but as in all other Fairmont Willow Stream Spas , the service here must be very relaxing.

This hotel offers more than everything a guest can expect in a 5 star property.
But our stay at Fairmont Beijing was made so memorable and unique thanks to the staff working there.
They really made an effort to give us all the support we needed, all the service we could dream of, all the moments of attention you gave us.
Thank you Michael and Tom , and Emily and Apple, and Faisal and Marcus, and Xavier and Nathalie and everybody else who made our stay so memorable.

Welcome Brett, we are convinced that Fairmont Beijing is going to become an even better place when you are there.

We are convinced we chose the best hotel there is in Beijing

Room Tip: Try to upgrade to a gold floor room/suite. The benefits were worth it.

I spent a month in Beijing for work and stayed in three hotels, the Fairmont, Opposite House and the Grand Millennium. The Fairmont easily had the best service.

The hotel is very clean and quiet. The staff was friendly and spoke excellent english. The fitness center is one of the best I've seen in a hotel. I would definitely stay again.

Simply the best hotel in China. Rooms, facilities, restaurants and staff are all top notch. Location is not great for strolling around during the day or at night but is within a short walk to the Silk market and Metro station. recommend the local delicacy Peking Duck in the Lunar 8 restaurant.

This hotel is superb. The room was big with all the amenities that your would expect from a five star hotel. Having stayed at the Fairmont Dubai previously this hotel also delivers the famous Fairmont experience. Good variety at the breakfast in Lunar 8. All the staff was friendly, helpful and courteous. Wi-fi is complementary for Fairmont President's Club members. Would stay here again.

My family stayed at Fairmont Gold Junior Suite for a 4-day vacation! The hotel was awesome! The service was amazing! Facility was top-notch! Whole day service/supply of food and drinks from the Gold Lounge! And the bed... oh the bed...totally wonderful!

The staff (everybody) made it a point that our stay was extra special. They were very attentive to our needs. My two kids wanted to stay there forever -- hahaha!

Dinning at "The Cut" was sumptuous! Chef Marcus and the rest of the staff made our dinning experience very memorable.

Location is good, too. Just a couple of minute away from the subway and, viola, the city is in your hands!

I'm a travel and hotel business traveler for over 25 years. I've stayed in many hotels. This hotel is the best ever. From the service to the decor, this is what 5 star is all about. Others have said to pay for the Oro or Gold floor. I agree, you save on breakfast and light dinner in the lounge access. If you like or are familiar with Fairmonts, they bring her unique brand of consistency to this location. Oh, and download the Fairmont Beijing Travel App...also outstanding.

The Fairmont Beijing is truly a 5 star hotel. Our room had a sitting area with a desk/work area. Internet access was available. Room also had a refrigerator, iron and board, safe, large screen TV, coffee maker, and large bath with tub, separate shower, sink, and a toilet with a heated seat and water cleaning apparatus. The king bed was very comfortable. Turn-down service is available in the evening. Bathrobe, slippers and bottled water were provided. The only negative in the room was the poor lighting at the sink.

Room lights are controlled by a master switch. We had trouble turning off all the lights with the master switch until we found the individual switches on the night stand lamps. Follow the cord to the switch which is behind the table. Newspaper (China Daily) was delivered to the room during our 3 day stay.

Breakfast was in the Lunar 8 Restaurant on the lower level. The buffet breakfast included a good selection of Western and Chinese food. Good made to order omelets.
