Reviewed 6 September 2009

We stayed at the Raffles Beijing for 6 nights in September. It was simply the best. We enjoyed the breakfast, especially the Chinese food section. The staffs were very helpful. The conceige recommended Da Dong for the Peking duck dinner and it was a delightful meal and the price was reasonable.

Absolutely excellent, the rooms are above expectations, the breakfast is superb mixture of chinese and western, there seafood night in the restaurant is first class and is a must.
There is no better location in Beijing, and there are a lot of English speaking staff, and a English relations manager available for all information.
There is a happy hour every evening in the bar, and the Gym and swimming pool are very good.
Myself and two teenagers could not pick fault with this Hotel

Gorgeous hotel in fantastic location. Staff very pleasant and helpful(most of the time)!!! We stayed in a room on the 6th floor, which was lovely with a king size bed, massive tv, seperate shower and bath, fridge. Rooms were in impecible condition and cleaned twice a day with wee extras such as fruit, flowers etc.
Our only main issue with this hotel was when we went on a day out and tried to return to the hotel to find all the streets closed off by the police due to a national day of celebration (which the hotel had not informed us about). When we called the hotel to tell them we were stranded, they basically told us there was nothing they could do and that we should try and find somewhere else to stay for the night. This would be ok if we had our passports with us, as every hotel in China requires ID (no exceptions) to check in. So basically, we were homeless for the night but paying for a 5 star hotel. Needless to say we were pretty miserable and upset. When returning to the hotel at 5:30 in the morning, when the roads finally opened up to the public, we complained to the duty manager who took our room number and said he would look in to it and get in touch-we never heard anything till the last day when we met the manager who said that letters had been sent telling guests about the holiday-we did not recieve anything!! After long discussions we managed to get our bill for room service scrapped and a free late check-out and a sincere apology!
We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone-just beware of any national celebrations (or maybe carry your passport just in case)!!

We had a great vacation in Raffles Beijing hotel. The first room we were put in had a view to inner yard and we requested to change it to one with better view as we stayed here for ten days. The room we got was spacious on the 3rd floor and had a view to E. Chang An. Ave.

Breakfast is very good and they even make specialty coffees if requested. Other services, like arranging trips and taxis for us worked perfectly.

Only minus is that the use of the Business Center is only for Club Lounge members and they sell the package for the membership for 250 RMB's a night, which is quite hign price for only B.C. usage, as we did have already free Internet and other perks by American Express.

Elegant hotel catering to all one's needs. Great central location near Forbidden City, Tiannamen Square and Beijing's pretigious shopping.

Stayed in Oct 2008 with my family. This is hotel is boutique hotel so the service they gave is exceptional. The rooms were very spacious and nice along with the bathrooms. We got free wireless internet, so that was a plus. Also for hotel guests only, they exchange RMB currency without a transaction fee.

My bro-in-law booked it with his American express and we got a free foot massage at the hotel. It came in handy after walking the Great Wall :). We also got free breakfast buffet with the credit card. The breakfast buffet has Chinese as well as American food. You can eat eggs, bacon, french toast, or you go chinese and get Rice congee or wonton soup. The wonton soup is a must (they have the wonton meat prepped and assemble the wonton in front of you and boil it fresh). I got like 3 bowls of wonton soup every morning...I think the guy making the wonton soup hated me by the 3rd and last day...haha.

Location is very good. It's only a 10 min drive down the street to Tianamen sqaure and the forbidden city. There's also a mongolian bbq place nearby. Wangfujing is also a 5-10 min walk from the hotel. Great place to shop and eat some street vendor food. Street vendor food is cheap for the late night snackers reading this. The subway stop for Wangfujing is also closeby as well. I recommend the subway over taxi or private car. Beijing traffic is horrible.

If you go to Beijing, this hotel has it all. Stay HERE!
