Our Review

Sandwiched between two drab edifices (to the east, the 1970s lines of the Běijīng Hotel; to the west, a gawky Soviet-era facade), the seven-storey Běijīng Hotel NUO (formerly Raffles) oozes cachet and grandeur. Illuminated in a chandelier glow, the elegant lobby yields to a graceful staircase leading to immaculate standard doubles that are spacious and well proportioned, decked out with period-style furniture and large bathrooms.

The heritage building dates to 1900 when it was the Grand Hotel de Pekin, and it stays true to its historic roots. The ground floor contains the hotel's most historic feature: the Writers Bar, once a common meeting place for Communist Party cadres, including Mao Zedong, and now a splendid spot for high tea or a cocktail.
