As an art lover, I think this is the only and the best place to stay in Beijing. I had a wonderful time wandering round all the galleries, found some new interesting works from artists I did not know previously and was reacquainted with works of well established artists, namely that of Wu Guanzhong, the father of modern Chinese painting - an artist who I admired 20 years ago when I was studying in Beijing and that I have all but forgotten.
I was very very VERY spoilt at Grace - from the initial glass of champagne at check in to the wonderful made to order breakfasts; from the wonderfully CLEAN and airy room to my own very large bathroom - what a difference it was to when I was last in Beijing as a student staying at the university campus - then, I had to share room and bathroom, and had daily 'run ins' with rats and all types of creepy crawlies - ugh!!!
Had a fabulous lunch sitting outside on the terrace with friends and a wonderful intimate dinner in the restaurant with my husband. The restaurant staff were friendly, courteous and extremely helpful.
Loved the photograph which was in my room - man with head in towels - made me smile every time I saw it - the artwork in the rest of the hotel I found to be quite quirky and humorous.
Yes, it is a teeny tiny bit inconvenient to get to and from the centre of Beijing but then why would anyone want to leave? I would stay and wait for Beijing to move its centre to 798!
