The luxury 7-star hotel is currently one of the nicest hotels in Beijing. Built right on time for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, this high-end hotel features one of the world’s most dazzling vistas of Beijing’s Olympic Park, including the famous “Water Cube” aquatic center as well as a gallery of modern architectural icons like the Beijing National Stadium, known as the “Bird’s Nest,” that was also built for the 2008 Olympics and is illuminated every evening.
The Pangu 7 Star Hotel Beijing features luxury interiors created by Milan-based maestro Ricardo Bello Dias. The architect was able to find a balance between Chinese classical tradition and contemporary European glamour. The hotel’s 234 luxury guest rooms, including 140 suites, feature soaring, eight-foot ceilings and Baker furniture, the same found in the U.S. Presidential White House.
The Pangu 7 Star Hotel Beijing is a masterpiece expressly crafted with guests’ comfort in mind, where opulence is imbued with myth and meaning, and the ancient Chinese principles of feng shui has been harnessed on a grand scale to bring good fortune and prosperity.

Located at the penthouse of the hotel, The Pangu Plaza 23rd floor is one of Beijing’s most exclusive attractions for visitors and hotel guests. The celestial Sky Courtyard offers an experience unlike any other on earth. Thanks to custom-powered roof slides that allow people to watch the stars when open, the views from the bar and restaurant are breathtaking.
