“Good spot in Beijing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2007

I was in Beijing for business and spent two weeks at the Kuntai Royal Hotel. It was chosen for me by my employer, but I had no complaints, especially once I discovered the breakfast buffet on the second floor, which as far as I could tell was complimentary with my room. I'm not sure if a special business rate was negotiated, but the final bill was surprisingly low for such a nice property. My only complaint was the temperature control, which mostly didn't work. I spent most of the nights with the thermostat turned way down, both windows as wide as they would go, and was still too hot. The "fancy" restaurant was disappointing, but the dinner buffet was reasonable, and one of the beverage options is refillable beer. Good free internet service, and the laundry service was not too expensive either.

Stayed October 2006

Good:
- The hotel is new.
- Free internet.
- Location is good. for shopping. A large grocery (name is WONDERFUL) is a one-minute walk away. There is a fashion mall diagonally across the hotel, and silk street bazaar is abour 3-5 minutes drive from the hotel. Easy to catch a taxi in this area, and if youre feeling adventurous, there are many buses that pass infront of the hotel as well. There is a bus stop in front of the hotel.
- Breakfast is plentiful. Buffet choice of congee, wonton noodles, dimsum, fresh juices, cereals, cold cuts, fresh fruits, rice, sausages, eggs any way you want, etc etc etc. , although they serve the same things everday...
- Staff is very helpful. Most can understand and speak English.
- Bathroom is roomy - separate shower and bath areas. Enjoyed the bath tub. Hotel provides usual toiletries - soap, shampoo, bath gel, lotion, toothbrush, shower cap. Usual generic hotel toiletries. No bath salts or bubble bath.
-Very helpful staff at the business center who helped me compose a letter in chinese.
- Room not so big by asian standards.

Not so good:
- There are only three (3) non-smoking floors in the hotel. We were given a smoking room. Not happy with that. And the room was fully booked when we arrived due to some conference being held at the hotelso they couldnt transfer us to a non-smoking room. Good thing the room had windows. We left them open during our entire stay.
- Electricity acting funny. Our lights suddenly went off in the middle of the night, probably due to some short circuit. Staff was able to fix it in 20 mins after we reported it in the morning. However some of the lamps continued to be unpredictable. Some wouldnt turn on at times. Strange.

Overall had an enjoyable stay.

I was genuinely surprised at the modern, spacious & clean room. The room was made more than twice a day on some days.

Hotel staffs were also extremely helpful and efficient. Most of them spoke English.

The location was great too. A short walking distance (5 min) to a train station, a huge supermarket was 2 buildings away, one fashion shopping mall diagonally across the road (I think the mall's name was "Yueshow" Mall. Similar to "Silk Market", but I found this one much cleaner, and more relaxing to shop as not as crowded!). There were also few other shopping malls around the hotel, including an upper-end mall with starbucks cafe.

well, it's worth it. I would recomment to everyone. Most of the staff are nice and friendly.
The HEALTH SPA area is quite nice and you could even ask for a massage lady to your room.

You should try it

Great new hotel in an great area with lots to offer. I stayed there 10 days and loved it. Excellent service, perfectly clean, very comfortable beds, outstanding pool/gym... I only wish more of the staff spoke english. There is a latin bar/lounge arround the corner, "Mojito" that's very convenient ;)

My friend and I stayed at the Kuntai for only one night at the end of May. I had booked online for a double room for approx $125CAD. Every experience with this place was fantastic. The porters and the clerks were quick, thoughtful and most importantly fluent in English. When you want to leave the hotel, there is already a line of taxi's waiting on the street. The concierge waves one over for you and translates for you where you want to go. (The silk alley - now relocated to one single building of super shopping fun, and the friendship store was only 10RMB away.)

Our room was not small; however, with all the furniture in the room, which included a desk, a large armchair and the whole t.v/fridge/storage unit, the space was a little tight. Still, the linens were all crispy clean, pillows were balanced and fluffy, bathrobes were white and new. (Air conditioning was in good working order and it was quiet and comfortable.)

The bathroom on the other hand was enourmous. The shower stall and the giant bathtub were separate. The decor and the dimming lights gives the right atmosphere for a relaxing soak. There were plenty of heavy towels and little knick knacks of shampoo, lotions, toothbrushes etc.. Of course, being a relatively new hotel, everything was also very clean; no sweaty pipes, moldy grout, or stained porcelin.

I would recommend this hotel to everyone...

Beatiful new, modern hotel. Very nice bathrooms and linens. Super comfortable bed. The room we were given (1123) was on the small size for Chinese hotel rooms. The size was comparable to an NYC room. The breakfast was ok, nothing spectacular. Business center computers are not in private rooms or cubbies. Location is convenient.
