Raffles Beijing

Regal splendour a stone’s throw from the Forbidden City

On the site of the defunct, but legendary, Grand Hôtel de Pékin’s Block B, today Raffles Beijing endures as the go-to lodging for dignitaries and luxe-seekers alike. Raffles maintained the building’s Franco-Oriental stylings, something that carries through to its 171 nostalgia-inducing rooms, more so with the colourful experience available in the Personality Suites – each dedicated to notable names from history. The timber sprung dance floor, adjacent to the 1920s-styled Writers Bar, is particularly intriguing, as the original piece once scene of Beijing’s grandest social occasions.
