"This is a 5 star hotel that is definitely 5 star"
We had a wonderful stay at the Beijing Raffles. All the staff were most helpful and welcoming and could not have done more for us. Our stay was greatly enhanced when we met the Raffles Ambassador, John Spooner. John was extremely helpful and advised us on all our trips out to places of interest. He also helped us celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary going out of his way which was most kind of him. We will remember John and our visit to Beijing with great affection and recommend the hotel to anyone who asks.

We stayed 4 days during Chinese New Year and had a wonderful experience. Very dedicated, attentive staff.
The room was spacious, modern. The bathroom was large and had a great "spa" feel and layout. It also was quiet and peaceful which is nice after a long day. The hotel has a very good restaurant, China Grill with stunning view of the city.

The hotel was under renovation when we were there; however, it is still my favorite 5 Star hotel on our China vacation.The Peninsula Beijing was a nice place to return to after touring the city. The bed was comfortable and they provided everything we needed. They even provided a few extras. It was no problem to mail my Mother's Day card to the United States. It's close to the metro/subway and within walking distance of the forbidden city and other tourist sites and of course taxis and cars are easy to get. The staff is friendly, fluent in English, and always professional.

This hotel is more like an aparment with daily cleaning service. The pluses are there are two bedrooms (1 king size bed in the larger room and 1 twin in the smaller room); there is a small kitchen, there is even a nice washer w. drying capability as well (we used it and it worked). So it is more spacious than a normal hotel. It is suitable for a family.
The downside is that the upkeep is not the best. It is not the cleanest place (there are stains in the carpet), but it is acceptable to me. If you want to get new toilery each day you need to throw away the used ones otherwise they won't give you a new set. The cleaning crew start their day between 7:30-8:30am so you have to wait till then to get your shampoons etc. The hotel staff is nice and do respnd to your need even though it is slow at times.
For the two bedrooms, two breakfast buffet are included. The selection is very basic but it is good enough to get a meal out of it. You have a selection of eggs that is cooked for order.

"The hotel picture is an artist rendering, not real"
First, let me say that I like this hotel for it's price point and the large apartment rooms. This is a place I will return. Just understand that this hotel is undergoing a full renovation, no breakfast etc. I was unhappy initially at the actual look and feel compared to the picture they gave Expedia. Very different than the picture represented. No non-smoking rooms for now. Air con works great which is highly unusual for China. Outstanding location. Very helpful to have an excellent dry cleaners next door and Starbucks a block away. The rooms are decent but brace yourself for the hallway and lobby. Room cleanliness is very average. The nearby church bells go off at 6am but it is tolerable. The staff is effective if you are patient. They were generally helpful when needed.

The place was very comfortable, although communication in English was difficult especially in the restaurant. There was a translated english menu offered with limited choices, but at least we could order something. I think normally there is a buffet though for people to choose food.
