Our thoughts

As ever, the Shangri-La hotel collection exceeds expectations - everything about this hotel is beyond excellent. You relax the moment you walk through the doors. The atmosphere, the large, comfortable and well-equipped rooms and the helpful staff. The food offerings are also outstanding. The location is perhaps better suited to business travellers, however, taxis are easily bookable through the helpful concierge to all major Beijing sites.
