Capital of six dynasties and the beating heart of the world’s most populous country, Beijing is a city of contrasts, home to history and innovation, and wonders both natural and man-made. The vermilion walls and gilded roofs of the ancient neighbourhoods around the Forbidden City sit side by side with glittering malls and vertiginous skyscrapers.


VUE Hotel·Hou Hai·Beijing is located in the heart of the capital, minutes away from the city’s finest attractions. Guests of VUE get a taste of Beijing’s unique and unforgettable hutong lifestyle, an essential part of any visit to Beijing. The hotel looks out onto Houhai lake, while Prince Gong’s Mansion and the Former Residence of Soong Ching-ling are within walking distance. The hutongs are best explored on foot or by bike or rickshaw — just like the locals do. Stunning attractions such as Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, Jingshan Park, and the Temple of Heaven, are easily accessible by car or public transport.
