Authentic and charming

We enjoyed our stay at the Aman, just next to the Summer Palace (complete with a private for admission!). The staff uniforms, the setting, and innumerable details created a unique and authentic atmosphere for our visit to Beijing. My favorite meal was at the wonderful onsite Chinese restaurant. There's also an excellent western restaurant. Each day we returned to a delightful surprise gift or treat left in our room. Truly an unforgettable place.

This is a unique property in that it is not only on the grounds of the Summer Palace, but actually part of an unused section. The plus is that you have access to the Palace through a secret door. The negative is that it is located away from downtown Beijing and some of the other sights. If you have been to Beijing before, or want to stay away from the bustle and pollution of downtown then this is a good choice.

Nice hotel

The staff was very kind and the room was comfortable. If we have a chance to go to Beijing, we probably choose Aman summer palace again.

Our travel agent Linda Young gets the credit for this. This resort is a must-do for any serious traveler to Beijing. This is not just a resort; it is an experience delivering a unique moment of Asian culture and philosophy. We participated in several regular services -- spa treatment including a private class on the use of singing bowls, private theater film requests, calligraphy and paper cutting classes with master artists, backdoor access to the Summer Palace. We returned with original art, singing bowls and very cute daily gifts. The staff was completely customer focused and found the right way to get our shipped gifts safety home for us.
