Visiting Beijing was on our bucket list for a long time. We were excited about our trip to China. Finding a good hotel in Beijing is very difficult. Some of them don’t have toilets, some of them are of low standard and, unfortunately, most of them has very week WiFi. We, as digital nomads, need reliable Internet to work. We spent hours on searching for the right place to stay in the capital of China. Finally we found Hotel Jen Upper East Beijing– best hotel Beijing. This hotel seemed to have everything that we wanted- luxurious standard, good Internet, gym, good location and professional staff. Was it as good as we expected? Check it out!
About the hotel
Hotel Jen (formerly The Traders hotel) belongs to the luxurious Shangri-la group. It’s one of the highest buildings in the neighbourhood- it has 403 rooms. The hotel has everything a traveler needs: cafe, restaurant, laundry service, swimming pool, gym and even spa. The location is very convenient, close both to the airport and to the city centre. The staff is very professional, they are all very fluent in English.
We were positively surprised by the facilities of the hotel- we are traveling around the world for 2,5 years now and we’ve never been to a hotel so friendly to its guests.
Hotel Jen Upper East Beijing is a luxury hotel but you can find there vending machines where you can buy cheap snacks. The mini bar in your room is almost empty, you won’t find there expensive drinks or snacks that you would never buy. Hotel Jen’s management understands the needs of travellers. Most of us use the fridge to put our own food or drinks there, so all we need is more space in the fridge.
The other thing that we love are mobile phone chargers that you can find at hotel’s concierge. You can lock your phone in mini box and wait until it will be charged. How awesome is that? We were forgetting our chargers many times during our travels. It was always difficult to find a shop where we could buy new ones. Hotel Jen’s facilities take all your troubles away. If you forget something, you can be sure they have it!
Do you use hotel’s laundry service? We don’t. It’s usually too expensive. Paying $10 for washing one t-shirt is just too much. Hotel Jen Upper East Beijing knows about it. That’s why they are offering something amazing- washing 10 pieces of clothes for just 200 RMB. $3 for one piece of cloth is not much!
We really loved the idea of club lounge. You pay a little bit more for a room but you get a lot in return. Individual check in and check out, private breakfast and unlimited snacks and drinks in the evening. You can use the Club Lounge whenever you want, to work, watch TV or just relax. It’s truly VIP experience.
The Club lounge even has it’s own VPN, that means you can use websites that are blocked in China, like Facebook, Youtube, Gmail etc.
Superior rooms (33m2) are available on the standard floors or club floor, with all Club Lounge benefits.
Deluxe rooms (38m2) are available on the standard floors or club floor, with all Club Lounge benefits.
Executive suites (66m2) are available on the standard floors or club floor, with all Club Lounge benefits. Suites are very spacious with a separate sitting area.
Club deluxe suite
Very spacious room (99m2) with all benefits of Club Lounge. It’s more like an apartment, with kitchenette and separate sitting area.

There are 3 main places in a Hotel Jen Upper East Beijing where you can eat and drink. It’s not all though, there are few vending machines and small shops where you can buy small snacks as well.
