Beijing Hotel Nuo

Last updated: 28 December, 2023

Part of the former Grand Hotel de Pékin dating to 1917, this elegant property has long been popular with overseas visitors.

European classicism is evident from the chandeliers and antique furnishings in the lobby, and this sophisticated period styling extends throughout the rooms and suites. If you didn’t know you were in Beijing, you could almost be in Paris.

Afternoon tea or a cocktail in the Writer’s Bar, with its baronial French windows and 1920s wooden dancefloor, is de rigueur. Located near Tiananmen Square, the hotel is close to the main central sights.

Surrounding area

The city’s main east-west thoroughfare, Dongchangan Jie, passes in front of the hotel.

The vast road (12 lanes of traffic!) is used for military parades, and cuts neatly between Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, one kilometre to the west. Wangfujing, in the opposite direction, is even closer.

The infamous 1989 ‘tank man’ photo doesn’t actually depict Tiananmen Square – it was taken from an upper window of the hotel, and shows Dongchangan Jie.
