Also unforgettable was our experience driving through Beijing in an old fashioned motorcycle side car followed by lunch with a local family in their traditional hutong house.

The Peninsula Beijing

Why We Love This Hotel :

History: First opening its doors in 1989, the Peninsula Beijing has undergone a comprehensive renovation, setting a peerless new standard.

Location: A stone’s throw from the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square, the Peninsula is at the heart of Beijing, located among its most iconic landmarks.

Service: Guests can enjoy the quality and attention to detail for which Peninsula is renowned throughout the world.


Every need is attended to, thanks to the comprehensive facilities available to guests at Peninsula Beijing. Whether spending time in the city for business or pleasure, visitors will find themselves relaxed and rejuvenated in the spa, the pool and the fitness center.

Fitness Center

Guests seeking to keep up their fitness programs will be delighted with the state-of-the-art range of Life Fitness equipment in the hotel’s gym, where personal trainers are on hand to offer tailored advice.


Bedecked with Chinese wooden lattice-work, marble and granite, the spa is a tranquil escape from the bustle of the city. Visitors can relieve all stresses and tensions with a range of ayurvedic and western healing therapies and treatments, administered by experts.


With an emphasis on quality, the restaurants and lounges at Peninsula Beijing exude elegance, and the diverse menus will delight any palate.

Huang Ting

Diners find themselves in the elegant surroundings of the home of a Beijing nobleman, surrounded by parasols and tables from the Ming Dynasty era. Huang Ting serves fine Cantonese cuisine and traditional tea in its new Tea Lounge.


Bright and modern, the decor is as fresh as a Chinese garden and the delicious Mediterranean farm-to-table concept provides fitting flavors. Diners can relax throughout the day, pairing the dishes with fine wines and refreshing cocktails from the bar.

The Lobby

The restyled Lobby Lounge is demonstrative of the iconic elegance of Peninsula properties across the world, and the ideal place to indulge in the celebrated afternoon tea experience - complete with live musical accompaniment.
