The Jen Shangri-La

Last updated: 31 December, 2023

Taking up 22 floors of a downtown skyscraper, Jen targets China’s hip young lifestyle set with all-white, tech-forward rooms, an incredible gym over two floors, and even a microbrewery.

North-facing rooms frame floor-to-ceiling views of Beijing’s most iconic modern building, the twin-legged CCTV Tower.

A co-working cafe and free business facilities makes it a great choice for travellers who like to mix work with sightseeing.

Conveniently, Jen connects below ground to the subway, with Tiananmen Square and the central sights just five stops away.

Surrounding area

On a relatively quiet street in Beijing’s high-rise business district, Jen is low on local colour but big on convenience, with mall shopping, bars and restaurants all connected to the hotel itself.

Under the gaze of skyscrapers, including Beijing’s tallest at 528m, the surrounding streets are orderly and well-kept, if a touch corporate.

A standout venue worth making a beeline for is Migas Mercado, a Spanish-run restaurant and bar with live DJs and an outdoor terrace offering stunning skyline views.

The luxurious China World Mall sprawls around the hotel, and includes some first-rate drinking and dining destinations.
