Boutique Hotels in China and Must-Sees for Beijing Stopovers

China is a tourism supermarket, when it comes to sightseeing! Only within Beijing, you have the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace, the Temple of Heaven, the Confucian Temple, and a hundred more well-known sights to see. Yes, it is impossible to squeeze them all into one day (let alone appreciating any one of them!). If you only have an overnight stay in Beijing, tour guides advise choosing no more than three items for either personalized guided, or self-guided tours.

Even one attraction could be enough to keep you going for the whole day … the Great Wall of China, for example, is pretty big! Some of the least famous Beijing attractions can also create some of the most-loved memories, so don’t be afraid to stray off the beaten track when it comes to planning your single day in Beijing.

The Shichahai hutong area, Yuanmingyuan Park, Peking University, and the Ming Dynasty tombs offer some amazing experiences, but are less busy. And the authentic Chinese experience doesn’t have to stop when you wander off the streets – a careful choice of Beijing luxury hotel or accommodation in Beijing can really set off your whole day.

Hotel G in Beijing is a glitzy, gracious and glamorous example of what life is like in the new Beijing … one where food is plentiful, war is a distant memory, and hutongs are slowly being replaced by high-rises. The Beijing designer hotel takes pains to be different to the usual international accommodation offering. Instead of beige walls and minimal decoration, here you’ll find a celebration of art, eclecticism, and life in general.

The entire facade glows neon at nighttime, and guests can choose the color of their particular window. Even the gym at Hotel G Beijing is part of a new technological age for China, who has always been a forerunner in consumer technology. It is Technogym branded, and contains amazingly innovative variants of the gym machines that you are used to from home. This Beijing luxury hotel offers a great way to contrast a history-filled day of sightseeing with an experience of the modern Beijing.

If proximity to the main attractions is your focus in choosing a Beijing Hotel, Beijing Shijia House is a less busy but just as beautiful place to stay. The five star hotel is about ten minutes from both Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, and the Wangfujing shopping district.

It is a courtyard style hotel in traditional Chinese style, and located within an old-style hutong – but with the facilities of the Hilton! Amazingly unique traditional features at this Beijing luxury hotel like stone walls, enormous indoor plants, precious ancient pottery, and the distinctive Chinese style windows will have you feeling well and truly immersed in the real China.

Hotel Kapok in Beijing is a testament to what modern designers can do with the rich inspiration of Chinese history. The exterior is modeled on the traditional Chinese lantern, but looks ultra-modern. It is a great way to experience the business side of Beijing – the efficiency, politeness and polish of corporate life in China. However modern this Beijing bed and breakfast is, it has not forgotten its history or culture.

You can rent bicycles from the front desk, and there are other old-style services like shoe shining, packed lunch creation and an evening turn-down service available at this Beijing hotel.

Hotel G Beijing is the first of an exclusive beijing boutique hotel brand launched by Hong Kong-based real estate private equity management firm Gaw Capital – and a model to be rolled out in selected cities of Asia.
