Hotels in Beijing

Beijing’s hotels are largely luxury or boutique format, with massive high-rise accommodations or small-scale courtyard spots. Grand Hotel Beijing certainly has the appearance to match its title. Its ancient and artful design reflects the hotel’s view, which is over the Forbidden City itself. It is just steps away from Tiananmen Square and offers modern luxuries with an indoor pool and gourmet cuisine at restaurants on-site. The Regent Bejing is one of the best hotels in Beijing and offers 500 rooms with five-star facilities and accommodations. The hotel is less than a mile from the Forbidden City and right along the central shopping street.

Hotel Kunlun is located in Beijing’s Central Business District (CBD) and overlooks the scene Liangma River. The restaurants in the hotel serve Sichuan cuisine, as well as Vietnamese, Thai, Korean and Japanese. Radegast Lake View Hotel Beijing has elegant rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows offering views of the city or Longtan Lake. It’s also only a 10-minute drive from the Temple of Heaven, a historical site that is worth the trip.

It’s all about location at this five-star business hotel near the center of Beijing. The 19-floor business and meeting hotel has 293 guest rooms, 75 apartments, and office space, all within a few minutes of the airport and railway and subway stations.
