Average time to visit

With scorching summers, cold winters, temperate springs and pleasant autumns, Beijing and its surrounding area experiences four distinct seasons. During the summer months, the mercury can reach over 40°C, bringing monsoon rains and extreme humidity, despite being the peak season for travel. From November through to March, northern winds whip through the city, seeing temperatures tumble to as low as -20°C in January, the coldest month. Springtime is windy yet pleasant, although sandstorms from Mongolia sweep through at this time of year making outdoor sightseeing uncomfortable. The Fall months are the perfect time to travel, with fewer tourists and the most clement weather for exploring the city.

Description

Located within walking distance from Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, The Park Plaza Beijing is a comfortable and contemporary option perfect for those who want a central location. It's an oasis in Beijing's bustling cultural and business center.

The Park Plaza Beijing sits conveniently in Wangfujing, Beijing's central district and cultural center. It's brilliantly located for visiting The Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and The Temple of Heaven.

The property is unmistakably a high rise city hotel, with 216 rooms, several restaurants, a spa and a gym. However, the interior design has been carefully considered and unlike many city hotels, the Park Plaza has character and atmosphere that makes it warm and welcoming.

Rooms are spacious and comfortable with crisp white sheets, modern bathrooms and all the amenities expected from an international hotel. Some even have floor to ceiling windows, with views out over the city.

There are numerous dining and drinking options, ideal if you don't fancy heading out after a day touring this incredible city. Choose from Bloo that celebrations Asian cuisine, or Oodle, a Japanese and Northern Chinese restaurant. There's also 24hr room service.

We feel that the Park Plaza offers comfort, value for money and a fantastic location.

The Park Plaza is a great value option in the center of Beijing. I liked the smaller feel of the hotel which feels more personal than some of the larger hotels in the city. Whilst the overall look and ambiance is more four star the value for money that the hotel represents is a huge selling point. Id definitely recommend opting for Club Level rooms as the added benefits that come with this are very useful. The location in the very center of Beijing means you can easily get out and walk to local restaurants in the evening in fact two of Beijings very best duck restaurants are within a few minutes of the hotel.
