Thank you very much for your perfect score!

4 out of 5
The property is a landmark in Beijing and was built in early 1900s. Conveniently located at the corner of Changan Avenue and Wangfujing shopping street, major attractions such as Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square are within 5 mins walking distance. The property has the quality to be an old world charm but proper refurbishment and maintenance are required Rooms are spacious, ornate and well equipped but like the rest of hotel facilities, they are dated. Hotel staff tries hard to please guests. Management is the local Beijing Hotel group and tends to cater more for Chinese visitors in terms of variety of western food and drinks offered in the hotel.

No air-conditioning and no service

Pros: The old renovated building.
Cons: Lots.
Location: Wangfujing shopping street
It was that time of the years in-between seasons in China when all air-conditioning / heating is switched off for a couple of weeks. The rooms are hot and the windows cannot be opened. The service was poor.

Dear guest, Thank you for choosing Beijing Hotel NUO and feedback after your recent stay with us. We regret to learn about your experiences and we will address this with our relevant department immediately. About the air condition issue you mentioned, it is due to local municipal management system, the cooling system is switched on 15 April every year and heating returns when the temperature drops again in autumn. We certainly understand your disappointment and we genuinely regret the inconvenience caused to you. Please note that the feedback provided by you is used to identify the areas in need of improvement and to better train our employees, all of which will help to continuously enhance the satisfaction levels of our valued guests when they return. Thank you for your time to provide these improvement areas to us and we hope to welcome you back soon again.

Wonderful

I love this hotel for its style and sevice. Also it's location is very good: very close to subway station, Forbidden City and Wang Fu Jing. However a better shower head will make it perfect. Nevertheless I will tell my friend about this hotel, and likely to stay here again when I come to Beijing the next time.

A touch of class that is all class

Pros: The luxury and the staff!
Cons: That we could have stayed there longer!!
Location: Wangfujing St was right next door as was the subway - very important in Beijing! There is also the Forbidden City and Tian'anmen Square!
We were spoilt from the moment we walked in the door at Raffles! We were on our honeymoon and the staff took extra good care of us and made sure our stay not only at the hotel but in China was the best possible. Our room was upgraded, which was absolutely divine and stunning! One of the best beds I have ever slept in!! Everyone was so friendly and helpful, we were given lots of advice about how to get around, what to see, what to be watchful of. We were so close to everything, a big shopping street, major attractions and the subway! Raffles was value for money and then they took it to another level.
