A winning blend of traditional Chinese style and modern flourish in the heart of the capital
One of Beijing’s premier addresses for business and leisure travelers alike, the Peninsula exudes the understated, modern-Asian elegance the hotel brand is known for. The rooms have earth-toned décor, simple lines, and streamlined furniture, plus useful high-tech features like bedside temperature-control panels and iPod docks. Perhaps the hotel’s most distinctive feature is its Peninsula Academy programs, that aim to connect guests with Chinese culture, such as classes in fortune cookie baking and kite making or rickshaw tours through a Hutong neighborhood.
In the Area
The hotel is centrally located in the heart of Beijing. It’s a few minutes’ walk from St. Joseph’s Church (commonly known as Wangfujing Cathedral), an early-20th-century Romanesque Revival church that was first built in 1655, and close to the Forbidden City. A good overview of Chinese art history can be found nearby at the National Art Museum of China and the shopping is top-notch at the Malls at Oriental Plaza, which comprise five zones of stores ranging from international luxury brands like Burberry and Coach to homegrown favorites like Shanghai Tang, The Shi’s Gallery and Zhaoyi.
How to Get There
(Our second visit) Truly amazing experience, luxurious, spacious, central, friendly and helpful staff.
Restaurants pricey but absolutely worth it. Great breakfast selection with continental and local options. Our only hotel option in Beijing for all future stops. Walking distance to tourist attractions.
The rooms are amazing, service is terrific, and the food is delicious. We only stayed here one night on an overnight stay in Beijing from our cruise but we wish we coud have stayed much longer. Had the Peking duck in their restaurant and it was beyond expectations.
When you walk through the front doors the staff greet you as if to welcome you home! Our room was beautiful with exquisite attention to every detail! Breakfast was delicious, healthy and fresh. The staff are always on hand to meet your needs or simply converse and share their insights about Beijing! After only 3 nights we truly felt at home and so happy to be there. The location is perfect to go out on foot with sights to see nearby! Our daughter was about to begin her semester of study in Beijing and a very special member of the Peninsula Beijing staff went above and beyond to make the move into her dorm effortless! I cannot thank the amazing, professional and kind staff enough! Our home away from home- The Peninsula Beijing!
During the five days of staying, the hotel's equipment was very comfortable. The staff was very kind. Especially katherine was like a good friend warm and cordial hospitality, the Peninsula Hotel It will be my first choice for visiting Beijing again.
The Peninsula was perfect! The rooms are wonderful and the staff is simply amazing! From the minute we arrived to when we left (with a 8pm late checkout at no charge) they treated us like kings and were happy to help with everything or to simply have a nice chat during tea in the afternoon. The location is very central and perfect to explore Beijing. Definitely coming back!
