Swissotel Beijing Hong Kong Macau Center

Reviewed 28 October 2011

I spend 2 days for business purposes with my partner at SwissHotel Beijing. Location is just perfect is close to the subway giving you a best way to get to the hotel from/to Airport ussing Airport Express. BB is very nice and rooms are comfortables.- Very well recommended for business and leisure, close to subway allowing you to take you everywhere in Beijing, as in all China, english is an issue and is hard to make you understood by the staff, anyway they are nice. Internet is just available at Lobby which is a problem when you need to be connected with the world.
Beds are another issue, mattress are very very very hard! I think the hardest in all China.

Stayed for six nights in a Junior Suite with Executive Floor privileges. The room was very nice and large and it looked out over the traffic intersection in front of the hotel which was constantly busy. I was told by others that had stayed here previously that they always requested a room on the side away from the traffic circle to reduce noise from car horns from the street which in Beijing are used frequently. But with the windows closed the traffic noise was not a problem. The bathroom was a bit older but everything worked but the hair dryer. The tap water is not drinkable and the hotel provides an ample daily supply of bottled water. However the sign telling you not to drink the tap water is tucked in below a ledge by the tap and was barely noticible if you were not looking for it. The subway/metro stop is just outside the front of the hotel which made taking public transportation very easy and we used it extensively for sightseeing in Beijing. The hotel is adjacent to a busy street that had a Starbucks and various other restaurant choices, though non seemed very exceptional. (The Beijing “Hooters” is a 15 minute walk down the street, apparently even China is not immune from such things). The executive floor was very nice and I would recommend this option if it is available. Breakfast was served there as well as a happy hour in the evening and a hot and cold buffet. A very nice place to get away to after the end of a busy day. The one thing we did learn the hard way is that vehicles making a right hand turn on a red light don't stop for pedestrians, they just blow the horn twice before they (nearly) hit you.

Room Tip: Get a room with executive floor privledges if you can.

Swissotel Beijing is ideally located if you are arriving by subway from Beijing International airport.Take the airport train to Dongzhimen subway station ( 20 minutes ).From here take subway to Dongsishitao station (1 Stop) and the hotel is 10 metres in front..The check in was fast and efficient. The room was perfect..size and comfort. Tea ,coffee making facilities in room. We had the Advantage room deal which included breakfast, which was a fantastic buffet mix of Chinese and Western food .Staff were courteous and helpful. All the major sites in Beijing are easily reached by subway which is at the front door of the hotel.Plenty of shops and restaurants nearby.To get to the Great Wall..take subway to Jishuitan station and follow the signpost for bus 919 to Badaling.(The bus stop is about 5 minute walk from subway exit ,almost to the end of the street. Be careful because there are also bus 919 that go to other destinations .) Would definitely stay at Swissotel next time we are in Beijing.

This is a welcoming hotel, from the facade, through Check-in, the staff, the restaurants, to the rooms. The atrium style check-in area is spacious and inviting, the decor is pleasant and eyecatching but muted. The check-in staff are courteous and helpful. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. The restaurant staff are efficient and courteous, the food is of a high standard and plentiful. The hotel is within easy walking distance of several good restaurants (the Purple Haze is recommended) and Ya Show Tourist Market. There is easy access to ther MRT system (station outside the hotel).

The location is not bad, close to the ring, ghost street and to the center, but if you do not want to take the metro, you must rely on taxis which are not always easy to find these days in Beijing. Metro station right in front. The hotel has no charm, no internet in the rooms and the staff does not always speak English. It has not been renovated in 10 years, the rooms are that of a European 3 star hotel, the bathrooms are quite old and are showing their age. The beds are very hard, similar in what you would expect to find in a 3 star but not in what should be a luxury hotel. The front desk is nice but not helpful at all. The bar has wifi and the tea is very good and very expensive (more than a cocktail or beer). I would not recommend this hotel since in Beijing one has many other options which are better for business and leisure.
