We stayed at Swissotel Beijing on 2 separate occasions while holidaying. Both times our flight to Beijing arrived early in the morning but the kind staff at Swissotel let us check in at 10am. Furthermore they let us check out at 2pm which meant we stayed at the hotel for over 24 hours but did not get charged any extra.
The hotel itself was not close to any attractions as such but is literally right next to the underground. This allowed us the freedom to move around the city cheaply and easily. The staff at the front desk were very helpful and spoke good English. They were able to provide clear directions and other information.
Facilities wise the hotel has a pool and a gym available to guests. Both times our rooms were spacious and had good views from the 7th and 9th floors. We did not eat at the hotel so cannot comment on food. However there are eateries in the vicinity. There is also a 7/11 across the road and a Starbucks as well.
If there was a downside to Swissotel it would have to be the lack of wifi on the upper floors. Also the cabled internet is pricey.
Overall we enjoyed our stay at Swissotel and if we were to visit Beijing again we will most definitely be staying there.More
