A bewildering array of restaurants, bars, and lounges coupled with spacious, well appointed guest rooms means this popular Chinese business hotel deserves even wider recognition. The public areas are impressive, adorned with Dragon Empress carved dividers, gigantic lanterns, sofa fabrics that could be satin ceremonial robes, and gigantic smiling Buddhas; or you can opt for the more modern lounges, often grand spaces made cozy with sofas, tasseled velvet cushions, and fine
teak furnishings. Topped by a revolving restaurant, this 28-story tower has high ambitions. From the spacious Basic rooms to the Superior suites, they're all done out in a low-key but tranquil style. The Kunlun isn't too far from the clubs of Sanlitun.

We had a great time at a Hotel that had character. They saved me from headaches and heartaches in a country with such history. I left my electrical outlet convertors at home (USA) and had 3 cameras that needed immediate recharging. I was looking at 10 more days of China and panic set in. I went to the Hotel Information desk and explained my problem. They were very nice and said they would have a surge protector with the needed outlets delivered
to my room immediately. Our stay in China produced 6 hours of video, 8 digital disks and 4 rolls of film which I couldn't have done without their help. The Kunlun Hotel has so much class; forget the Radisson, the Hilton, the Sheraton and even the Plaza Hotel in Beijing. Don't get me wrong, they all look very nice with their glass and chrome interiors, but in Beijing? This was a vacation to remember!!! I would recommend Beijing as a Must see for everyone and Kunlun as a Hotel with class and character that fit with the China mystique. By the way, our room was $160/night with a huge breakfast buffet included. Have Fun!!!
