Minzu Hotel (Mínzú fàndiàn) Review

When it opened in 1959, the Minzu was labeled one of the Ten Great Buildings in Beijing—this paean to China's unity has welcomed many prominent dignitaries over the years but has since been renovated into yet another shiny pleasure dome, even though it has maintained its original local appeal. A lack of international brand recognition, however, means it lies slightly off the usual tourism radar, despite its location near western Chang'an Jie, relatively close to Tiananmen Square. With the rise in the number of luxury hotels around Beijing, the hotel no longer attracts any significant visitors, and the only reason to stay here—other than price—is if you have business in the area.
