Great hotel, clean, great service, great location
Beautiful historic hotel, right in the center of everything. Bucket list places of historic significance + amazing restaurants + great shopping all within walking distance. The service, cleanliness, and condition of the hotel were top notch. When we visited, the pool and one of the restaurants were temporarily closed but the 1st floor restaurant was filling in, and there were other choices within walking distance.

Great Stay!
We had a wonderful time at this hotel. We loved our room, that has much history and traditional Chinese decorations. It is a spacious room with very comfortable bed. We spent a couple weeks there and it felt like a home away from home.

6/10 Good

Was average for the price. Did not receive VIP upgrade or treatment and was laughed at when I asked for the upgrade.

Stay in this iconic hotel!
The hotel is so beautiful and the staff is super helpful and friendly. It is close to the Forbidden city and an amazing hotel to stay in. I ate in the downstairs lounge which is very elegant and the food delicious.

Old Classic
This lovely hotel is definitely one of the classics. The old girl has held up well and continues to provide comfort, style and service! The room was spacious and clean. The amenities are truly on point - organic and luscious smelling bath salts, soaps and shampoo. I got such a great deal on the room through Hotels dot com that I booked it even though I have an apartment close by.

7 nights peaceful stay
Good size room with living room space. Very private and quiet. However no view. Great location just 2mins walk down to Wangfujing subway. Great location at Wangfujing shopping street with all food and shopping choices. Will definitely consider again.

10/10 Exceptional

We arrived early at the hotel because my daughter was very unwell and unable to sight-see that morning as planned. The hotel staff saw she was not well and very kindly allowed us to check in early and checked up on us periodically throughout our stay to make sure we were OK. They even sent fruit and a get well card for my daughter which was so nice. Room service meals were excellent. Loved the pizza, and the prawn ball dish was amazing. We spent a whole day in the hotel just relaxing and pampering ourselves with all the complimentary goods (lovely soap, gowns and slippers) which very much helped my daughter made a speedy recovery. Above all, the personal service provided by Jessie Zhou in reception was exemplary. She really looked after us and made us feel welcome and so at home. Jessie is such an asset to this hotel. She turned a routine hotel stay into something very special for us. We loved her, this hotel and our whole stay at Nuo Forbidden City in Beijing. We will be back.

The Beijing Hotel Nuo exceeded all our expectations (which were already high enough before we arrived). It is pretty much how every hotel should be. Classy, clean, cozy, spaceful, great staff, very well located, great wi-fi. We had one of the best breakfasts in our lives (although expensive). I want to thank all the employees who made every effort to make us feel at home and made our trip so fantastic especially Mr. James Wu who also arranged a birthday cake to our daughter.
