Beijing Grand Hotel: Very well kept, detailed cleanliness, attentive and courteous staff, fast to any service. 5 to 10 minute walks to modern shopping, old Beijing hutongs, Forbidden City, Tiannamen Sq., and Beijing Opera. 7th floor room overlooked these. The inside rooms overlook well lit and nicely appointed courtyard; live piano usually filling the background. Good food and drink. Reception keeps passport copies; a beautiful cake and bottle of wine was sent up for my wife's birthday.
“Very Impressive - Good Service and Good Price”
The rooms, lobby, common areas were all beautiful. The location is right next to the Forbidden City and Tineanmen Square, also a very short easy subway ride to the silk market for bargain shopping. The staff was friendly, the concierge easily found out airport terminal information for us which saved us a lot of time at the airport. Also, our luggage was lost by our air carrier, and the concierge called several times throughout the day to check on it for us (I'm certain that having a Mandarin speaker calling was key in getting our bags returned). Overall a fantastic stay... easy cab from the airport was inexpensive. The concierge was also very helpful with helping contacting a local driver for a trip to a remote area of the Great Wall. I thought this was wonderful, since the hotel itself offered private car service, but at a higher rate. The driver she found for us was friendly, prompt, had a safe and clean car, and though he spoke very little English, he met all of our needs for a very reasonable price. I travel internationally 3-4 times a year for work, and I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to colleagues and family/friends.
“A Hidden Treasure”
“excellent service and location”
excellent service and location. great price for quality.
“A random choice, but one with no regrets.”
The hotel proved to be an excellent place to stay. The facilities including the choice of restaurants and bars was extensive, and the location, next to the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square, was ideal. The room and all the fixtures were of good quality, the bathroom large and the facilities satisfactory. I cannot comment on the food since I did not eat at the hotel but I can comment on the service in the bar and it was exemplary. Would I stay there again, absolutely.
“An excellent hotel stay”
Grand Hotel Beijing is located on a major traffic artery, across from a park, next to the Forbidden City and Tian'an Men Square. It is large and provides good service and pretty rooms in my opinion. We opted for a "room with a view", which made the room price around 10% higher, as I recall, but we felt it was "worth it". We had breakfast in our room one morning, a meal of many dishes (the usual 'Western' breakfast rather than Chinese) and enjoyed it thoroughly.
“Good Beijing Stay”
The hotel is an excellent choice in Beijing. It is close to Tienanmen Square and the Forbidden City and only a 5-minute walk from the busy shopping street. The exterior picture is misleading because aside from a gate the actual hotel exterior just looks like a basic building. But the inside is beautiful. We got a free upgrade to a room with a forbidden city view which was beautiful. the rooftop bar, which was a huge selling point, was closed for the year which was a big bummer. the concierge and front desk speak english pretty well and were extremely helpful with pointing out places we were interested in on our map, setting up train tickets and cabs for us. the room was big and the bathroom was beautiful. not the most character but a good, clean and nice hotel. i'd hear that hotels in beijing left much to the imagination so it was worth paying a little more to have a nice and conveneient stay.
“First-rate place to stay for a week in Beijing”
The location was excellent, as were the rooms and the staff. A staff member's lack of facility was occasionally a problem, but was remedied by a colleague.
“An overnight stay”
The room was comfortable, but the lights didn't seem to all work, the bathroom was a bit run down but appropriate. Room service breakfast was served on time & as requested.
“My preferred hotel in Peking”
Nice location, well equipped rooms
