Here, we look at the best boutique hotels in the Chinese capital of Beijing.
Beijing (formerly Peking) is the third largest city in the world (and the second largest in China), with over twenty-one million inhabitants. Its three thousand years of history are sure to enthral; beautiful gardens and parks await the visiting explorer, along with art, culture and the architecture of its magnificent palaces and temples. The Great Wall, the largest manmade structure on earth, is a top priority for most sightseers. Beijing also has a modern face with shopping malls, gourmet restaurants and universities.
The Grace Hotel is in the ‘798’ district near Chaoyang and is also rated with five stars. Its twenty-four rooms offer character and funky décor, in addition to plenty of innate charm and reportedly good hospitality.
The luxurious Rosewood Hotel is a good family choice with children and has a wide choice of rooms and suites, combining classic yet modern. With relaxing and sumptuous rooms with walk-in wardrobes, the beautiful interior decoration is complemented by books and art, as well as a hotel spa for relaxation. Recently opened, the Rosewood is set to excel in the area, with just under three hundred rooms and mid-range pricing reflecting its quality and spacious elegance.
Other alternative include the Chang’an, or the massive Pentahotel in Hong Kong with nearly seven hundred rooms, starting at reasonable rates and with a fitness centre.
