Beijing is the capital of China. In Chinese, it means "capital in the north". Each and every year, this great city has attracted millions of visitors from all over the world to enjoy and experience its rich culture, history and fabulous scenery.
If you are coming to Beijing, looking for the right hotel with the right budget is not an easy task especially for first-time traveller. Beijing has so many different types of hotels to offer, ranging from low-cost budget hotels to very expensive luxury hotels. The choice of hotels really depends on the traveller.
Generally, I would think that the Beijing International Hotel fits the bill for most travellers. This 4-Star hotel is located at Chanan Street, a very famous and busy business area in Beijing. The hotel is about 28 km from the airport and is near the Forbidden City, also known as the Imperial Palace. Other interesting places of interest near the hotel are the COFCO Plaza, the Herderson Centre and the Bright China Chanan Mansion. This hotel is always the first choice for both business travellers and general travellers because of the location, the quiet environment and the reasonable price.
The hotel building has 916 fully equipped and furnished guest rooms. You will find beautiful ponds and fountains in front of the hotel. The building has a car-park that is big enough to accommodate more than 300 cars.
At the large and spacious outer court, you will find an elegant Four Season Lounge, the Shanghai Pavilion and the Starlight Revolving Restaurant for your dining options. The restaurant offers a variety of food including Japanese and Cantonese food. If you prefer to dine at your room, there is a 24 hours room service available at your command.
There is a full-service health spa with massage and treatment rooms for the ladies and a business centre with small meeting rooms for the business traveller. Secretary services can also be arranged if needed.
Whether you are travelling on business or having a vacation with your family, selecting the right hotel is very crucial and important. Choosing the wrong hotel can spoil your entire trip and bring back bad memories. If you are visiting Beijing soon and ready to explore this fabulous city and at the same time want to have a peace-of-mind with your accommodation, then perhaps the Beijing International Hotel might be one of the choices in your hotel list.
