Yeah, Very few hotels in Beijing can offer such a fantastic location as the Beijing Sha Tan; with the Forbidden City literally just around the corner and Tiananmen Square not far, this hotel is extremely popular with independent and business travellers from around the globe.
A solid three star hotel funded by CNPC Petroleum, the Beijing Sha Tan is a blend of traditional Chinese features with modern designs, a mixture that works wonderfully well. The lobby has incorporated the traditional red lanterns into a fantastic lighting system, a tall Ming vase stands next to a modern Asian mural and potted plants makes it feel unique.
Rooms at the Beijing Sha Tan are decorated in simple and tasteful ways. Rooms are quite spacious for Beijing and come in a range of different categories. The triple rooms are perfect if you are bringing the family along with you and need more space; the deluxe double, standard and suites also have ample space for a comfortable stay here.
No matter which type of room you choose, your rooms are decorated in creams and muted gold tones with good quality red textiles. The triple and deluxe rooms have wall to wall windows where you can bask in the beauty of this ancient city.
When it comes to dining at the Beijing Sha Tan, the only way to describe the restaurant is ‘ancient China in the 21st century’. The tables and chairs are set in rows down two lines on either side of the room, with wooden and glass floors and innovative lighting on the ceilings and walls.
The restaurant serves good quality food from the southern regions of the country, mainly Fujian, Hunan and Sichuan. The menu is solid, but for a treat order the Purple Dragon – a Hong Kong seafood dish that is so fresh it’s almost still swimming on your plate.
In addition to the restaurant, the hotel also has a bar-cum-pub where guests can relax with a drink after a hard day’s exploration or meeting.
The Beijing Sha Tan is a good solid choice if you want a hotel with leisure facilities. With a casino to gamble away a few yuan, a few souvenir stores to purchase some gifts for family back home, a tour desk to arrange different excursions in and around Beijing, plus a beauty salon to pamper yourself in, the Beijing Sha Tan has everything you need for a comfortable stay.
The Beijing Sha Tan offers a choice of three conference rooms, all elegantly and practically designed, making any business meeting a pleasure. Each room has all the necessary equipment you will need. We give top marks for the reliable and informative business staff here.
