This massive curved tower may seem all business up front, with 825 rooms and suites decked out in a simple, Western-vibed elegance of blond wood, black-and-white photos and marble baths. But then you discover the party in the back: Club Oasis. The gigantic indoor pool is ringed by Atlantis-like stone columns, potted palms, waterfalls, and Jacuzzi grottos with a color-changing “sky” that wouldn’t feel out of place in Vegas. Interior walkways to the subway and Malls at Oriental Plaza make the hotel’s seven dining and drinking destinations as much a hit with Beijing’s moneyed masses as with guests.
In the Area
Nearby Tiananmen Square and The Forbidden City may offer serious sightseeing, but pedestrianized Wangfujing Dajie, Beijing’s oldest and most famous shopping street, and the picturesque hutongs that branch off it present a crash course in Chinese culture that harkens back to the Ming Dynasty. Today hundreds of odd stores from swanky relics (Shengxifu hats, Wuyutai tea) to flea market-style finds cater to the tourist trade. Set down a picturesque hutong is one of Beijing’s most charming restaurants, Dali Courtyard. A daily set menu lets you taste your way through expertly cooked Yunnanese specialties in a tree-lined courtyard ringed in Imperial-style walls. Feeling fearless? Wangfujing Xiao Chi Jie“Snack Street” offers pan-China street food with everything from Sichuan dumplings and Cantonese seafood soups to starfish, snakes and scorpions served on sticks. For a window into modern Beijing, spend an afternoon wandering through 798 Dashanzi, a complex of art galleries, cafes and boutiques carved from a factory district that once produced electronics for the military.
How to Get There
Located in central district in Beijing, this hotel is conveniently located at walking distance from famous wangfujing
street. Access to orient plaza is as getting out of the hotel elevator.
Hotel offers several restaurants and there are many more available in oriental plaza Mall, hence you are never out of options to eat.
We stayed here as a couple for 8 nights in April this year.
The hotel is stunning. The location is perfect. 10 minute walk to Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden Palace. Built above a high end shopping centre with easy access to two subway stations.
Our room was large with an amazing bathroom and view.
The pool in the basement is stunning. A real oasis after a few hours sightseeing.
There is a Subway sandwich store just outside the hotels main entrance (turn right). Good value for lunch. There is also an international supermarket in the shopping centre. It’s well hidden so you may need to ask for it. Good for beers and snacks.
Really enjoyed staying at this hotel. Think it could do with another bar though as we didn’t find the Red Moon that welcoming and therefore didn’t use it.
Great location for exploring the city by subway which is very easy to use.
This is a centrally located hotel with easy access to some of the major attractions - famous Peking duck restaurants, Wangfujing shopping district and lots of good eats and shopping at malls. The major reason for the 3 star rating is due to The room having a weird smell which made us feeling a bit dizzy, internet WiFi was slow
