The PuXuan is equipped with both Chinese restaurants and western restaurants, all of which consistently deliver delicious fares. Though when we travel we usually like to scrub around the older parts of town, dining options, especially the local menus, at PuXuan are worth exploring for intrepid eaters.
Their exceptional location is perfect for people who like to see things on foot- TripAdvisor’s given them a 97/100 location score for walkers, with museums, theatres, subway stations, and 33 restaurants within a 5-minute walk. Close by is the Forbidden City, parks, and all the other major historical attractions in Beijing.
With everything said, what really sets the Puxuan apart with the other hotels in the culture of hospitality they’ve embedded in their staff and protocols. Mineral water is free and unlimited, with new big bottles being dropped off at your room daily. In colder months, a hot water bottle is placed in beds at 6:30 pm to warm them up ahead of time. The concierge and butler service is said to be unparalleled. We’ve even heard of staff bringing ginger teas or boxes of tissues up to guests when they notice the guest sneezing or with a sore throat. Nearly every review of theirs discusses the impressive service and careful attention they give to each guest. In China, where hospitality standards can often fall short of western expectations, this is no small feat.
