Think no further than the Aman Summer Palace for your stay in Beijing. It is simply amazing! The property is so beautiful and the staff is nothing short of superb. They sought to make our stay a most memorable one. No attention to detail was too small. We cannot recommend the Aman Summer Palace enough. Don't bother looking at other...

I have been to many Aman properties around the world and fall in love with the hotel group. However, this one is definitely below the Aman standard. It cannot even attain the standard of service of Aman Tokyo. I came there for afternoon tea once and there were around 50 people squeezed in a tiny living room about 100 Meter...

Went to visit for an afternoon tea since i couldnt enjoy the summer palace as it is crowded with local tourist during the golden week. Lovely place to relaxed and enjoy a couple of hours with friends. You get to soaked in the atmosphere of the olden times.

After a visit to the Summer Palace, we went for a late lunch at Aman's Chinese Restaurant. The food and service are very nice, although most of the staff at the restaurant cannot speak English well. After lunch we walked inside to see the property and had some cocktail and tea at it's tea lounge by the garden. Very nice...

Aman, is a brand of good quality in hotels. The Aman Summer Palace, in Beijing, China, follows the tradition. Situated inside the Summer Palace Gardens, far away from the busy center, offers a good quality of services, among different historical and very elegant buildings and courtyards. Excellent place to have a break from the noisy and crazy traffic from the...

We always stay at Aman hotels. Here you pay for the location - in general the staff let it down. These are 6 star prices and sub three star service. The manager is great and some of the senior staff too but the concept of service is yet to be understood in China and reflected here. For example, lack of...

We had a memorable stay. Richard the manager helped us upgrade to a suite which was very nice. The most memorable part was getting up early and accessing the Summer Palace park in the wee hours of the morning before the park opened, through the hotel's back door, giving us access to the park with no one else around. We...

We stopped here on the way to the Summer Palace. Beautiful property. Walk the grounds. Cobb salad and salmon salad were excellent for lunch as was the seafood pasta. Looks like a wonderful place to spend a few days.

Aman hotels are more of an experience than a place to stay. I always expect to be surprised when staying in one of their hotels and this was no exception. My amazing room was close to the secret door that allows you to jump into the summer palace avoiding the huge line at the entrance of this popular tourist attraction....

This is a seriously gorgeous hotel beautifully managed. VP the general manager and his staff went out of their way to ensure that we were happy and anticipated every possible need. I felt as if were treasured gusts made to feel welcome by all the staff. Everything runs smoothly and the location of course was stunning with any time access...
