Qianmen Jianguo Hotel
When the first rays of dawn are cast upon the Forbidden City, you will feel the grace and dignity of Beijing, an ancient capital. However, there is a different atmosphere outside the Qianmen area. In the past, Qianmen was vibrant with Beijing's rich folk culture, and Beijing's past and present is well reflected in the verve of Qianmen.
Less than two kilometers away from the Qianmen Gate stands Qianmen Jianguo Hotel (whose name contains the same characters), which has been there for nearly 60 years. When it first opened its doors in 1956, Qianmen Jianguo Hotel was one of the best hotels in Beijing. China’s national leaders, including Zhou Enlai, Liu Shaoqi, Zhu De, and Chen Yi, have graced the halls of Qianmen Jianguo Hotel. In the 1990s, the tourism industry of Beijing began to boom and flourish, bringing opportunities to Qianmen Jianguo Hotel which enjoys a prime location: west of Qianmen Street, south of Liulichang Cultural Street and north of the Temple of Heaven.
