This hotel supports a large staff and pays a big licence fee for its location. That means it is expensive in every way. That being said it is a little magical to go through the "secret door" straight into the Summer Palace. The accommodation is lovely but other Aman's have better bathrooms. The staff is very good and set us...

I went on a busness trip to Beijing and decided to try Aman Summer Palace. I've read too much books and information of Aman all over the world. It's just beside the Summer Palace and have a private access to the Summer Palace itself. How often can a person say that they actually stayed inside the Summer palace? It was...

Stayed over a weekend before starting meetings in Beijing on the Monday. Location is perfect for Summer Palace and Great Wall trips - both of which were organised to the last detail. The property is unique in the city - with a "secret door" that leads directly into the Summer Palace at any time. Given how chaotic and busy it...

I stayed at the Aman at Summer Palace for a week in July with my 14 year old son. I guess each traveller will have to weigh up cost versus the unique nature of the hotel. For me the uniqueness won. In a country not yet noted for fantastic customer service, the Aman staff are all well trained and happy...

I have stayed at many average luxury hotels in Beijing but this was exceptional. We stayed 3 nights with two other groups of friends to celebrate some special birthdays and they went out of their way to make this memorable. Expensive - yes but an experience like no other from the exceptional guides, amazing remote Great Wall experience with a...

Stayed at the Aman at Summer Palace hotel for 2 nights during a two week trip around China. We had stayed at one Aman property before (Amansara in Cambodia) and thought it was amazing not only due to the property itself but also the guided trips they offered to Angkor Wat and surrounding temples included in the price. The Aman...

We spent a long weekend in Beijing and stayed there. We had a fabulous suite with an original Chinese bed but with a modern comfort. The room had century old vaulted wooden ceiling that were probably 20 ft high. The hotel has its own private entrance to the summer palace that is accessible anytime upon request. It means that after...

Aman offers a very special experience in Beijing. I was firstly attracted to it because it has the private access to Summer Palace, and soon enough I found the hotel itself is also a charming creature offering all the necessities to comfort your stay. During our stay we went to cinema and swimming pool without seeing any other guests. The...
