Currently, the hotel with the most buzz in Beijing is a brand-new hotel called Nuo. The hotel definitely has more of a design hotel feel than a typical luxury hotel. I noticed this when I first walked into the lobby. It felt like I was walking into a hotel in the Middle East. This is because there are very tall and impressive ceilings along with amazing artwork which really grabs your attention.
After checking in, I traveled up to the 22nd floor to check out my room. Although the hotel is quite modern, the designers incorporated traditional Chinese art and features throughout the interior. A feature I’d like to point out is the fact that the pillows are incredibly soft and comfortable. Amazing.

The bathroom is quite spacious. The bathtub is sitting right next to the window which offers a splendid area to clean yourself up and enjoy the beautiful view.
The hotel also boasts an extensive executive lounge on the 25th floor. It’s full service offering breakfast, afternoon tea, dinner and cocktail hour. The selection of food and drink is impressive to say the least for a lounge.
Along with the breakfast in the executive lounge, I was able to enjoy the more extensive selection in the main breakfast. Everything was great!
The theme of the food and beverage at the Nuo hotel is high-quality with an authentic taste. I believe they have about eight international chefs producing some of the best food I’ve had recently. On Sunday morning, I was able to enjoy the brunch at their N’Joy restaurant which you will have to read about in a separate article. I will say that this might be one of the best brunches I’ve ever had, but you’ll have to read the article.
Another aspect of the hotel we need to talk about is the fitness and pool area. The pool is huge and the design is glamorous. The gym overlooks the pool and has all of the equipment you’ll need. Don’t worry fitness junkies, I got your back. When you enter the locker room, you’ll be happy to know that there are great facilities including a steam room and sauna. Nice and toasty to relax Pierre.
When it was all said and done, I can really understand why people are raving so much about this hotel! I spoke with other professionals in the travel industry and some believe that the Nuo hotel is the best in Beijing. I’ll wait until I see more to make this judgment, but for now it is great. The hotel is impressive on all fronts and offers good service, quality food and a wonderful overall experience. I would highly recommend you to visit the Nuo hotel in Beijing, China!
