Good location but needs updating

Hotel was very big with multiple sections. Lobby was nice but hallways had a strange musty odor and had chipped paint and cracked wood work. Disappointed that breakfast was not included and pool was unpleasantly cold and hot tub was not hot at all! Overall not worth the price tag as I’ve stayed at another hotel that was even nicer that includes breakfast and location was also nice for much less money. On a positive note, very close to Tianemen Square/ Forbidden City and nice mall right around the corner.

Location: Tinamen Square, the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven, the market and shopping.
Location, location, location. The hotel is close to Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, Tinamen Square, the market and shopping. The hotel is historical and the entrance is beautiful. John the hotel ambassador is helpful and loves his job. We stayed on two separate occasions and discovered the rooms are dated and feels damp. No soft mattresses and bedding.

Great hotel, perfect location, awesome staffs

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet, location, nice staffs
Cons: no free breakfast
We were greeted by the staffs immediately after we arrived at Raffles, the hotel was better that expected, the staffs were very helpful, and its location is right next to Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, shopping, restaurants, etc. We enjoyed our stay in Beijing, expecially at Raffles. We will stay at this hotel again in the future, and we will recommend it to everyone.

Great Location, Good and Friendly Service, and big room

Location was perfect walking distance to Tianemen Square and Forbidden City, Food Stall Markets, and across front of the Oriental Shopping mall with a great selection of Asian and Western food on the Basement level. Beard Papa anyone. The guest hallway and room has wooded floor so you will squeak at every step. Spacious room no question in doubt. Service from everyone was very good. The highlight was my foot massage at the SPA. 11pm and had the place to myself. Ask for the Doctor (since I cannot give names here) as he got rid of my jet lag and body aches by the next morning.
