Upgraded to an all-suite hotel in 2016, the long-established Peninsula offers a near-perfect blend of upscale comfort and centrality.

All that space, superior service and amenities don’t come cheap, but if the price is within your range this is one of Beijing’s safest hotel bets.

The prime Wangfujing location, close to the major central sights, is perfect if you’re coming for sightseeing.

Among the hotel’s standout features are a rooftop bar (summer only) and Huang Ting Cantonese restaurant, designed to replicate an ancient Beijing courtyard home.

Surrounding area

Located in the heart of one of Beijing’s main hotel districts, it is within close walking distance of Wangfujing Dajie, the capital’s primary shopping street which offers malls, chain stores, coffee bars and restaurants.

The immediate surrounds are busy downtown streets, but a little investigating leads you to quieter hutong alleys, and the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square can be reached on foot in around 25 minutes.

China’s vibrant capital captives with its unique melding of ancient wonders, bustling hutongs and modern architecture – the food ain’t bad either. Top of the bill are the Forbidden City, the marvellous palace of China’s greatest Emperors – and the extraordinary Great Wall of China.
