The Top 15 Central Beijing 5-Star Hotels

Here is my pick of the top 5-star hotels in Beijing. Actually, the city has quite a lot of 5-star hotels, but for this list I have narrowed it down by focusing on the all important city centre making it convenient for transport and sight-seeing, then ranked them by past visitor reviews. All of these hotels consistently get top reviews from past guests. At the bottom of the page there is a handy map outlining their locations.
