Mandarin Oriental luxury boutique hotel to open in Beijing in 2019

The 73 room Mandarin Oriental Wangfujing set to open in Beijing, with spectacular roof-terrace views of the Forbidden City.

The first Mandarin Oriental property is set to open in China’s capital in early 2019, with a 73-room boutique hotel on the upper two floors of Hongkong Land's luxury shopping ‘destination' WF CENTRAL.

It will have rooms that are minimum of 55 sqm, among the largest in Beijing, some with views of the Forbidden City.

General manager Mark Bradford said: "Mandarin Oriental Wangfujing will become the prime hotel address in Beijing this winter, offering supreme comfort, impeccable service, incredible cuisine and an unmatchable garden-terrace view of the UNESCO-listed Forbidden City. 

"We are looking forward to welcoming guests very soon."

The hotel takes its name from the lively Wangfujing district in which it is located and is connected to WF CENTRAL, which has 130 tenants including 20 brands debuting in Beijing or China.

The hotel is just minutes from Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, within easy reach of the CBD and financial district.

It will have two restaurants and a rooftop bar with a garden terrace.

Café Zi will offer all-day dining, specialising in Asian cuisine and featuring a signature lunchtime dim sum selection created by Michelin-starred Hong Kong chef, Wong Wing-Keung.

Mandarin Grill and Bar will feature classic grill-style dishes with interiors by Adam Tihany, while MO Bar will serve innovative cocktails and feature resident and international DJs.

The hotel spa will have four suites with wellness and beauty treatments and a 25-metre, glass-roofed pool.
