15 Best Gay Hotels Beijing

From true 5 star luxury to backpacker hostels Beijing has it all and for a world capital city hotel rates are very low offering great value.

Hotels vary widely in terms of quality, so carefully consider anything suspiciously cheap. Besides, good accommodation in China is not prohibitively expensive, with some great modern gay-friendly hotels available for about $100 a night. If you prefer something more picturesque, there are some wonderful hutong (signature narrow streets and alleyways of Beijing) and courtyard hotels that allow you to truly immerse yourself in the city’s more traditional side.

Despite the fact that China still has a long way to go in terms of homosexuality acceptance, a cultural focus on the respect of privacy means that most hotels in Beijing are gay-friendly.

You shouldn’t have any trouble booking and checking into any hotel in Beijing, but there are a few that are more popular with gay visitors. These include hotels close to Destination Club in Sanlitun such as A Hotel and The Opposite House Hotel, the latter of which has a gay-frequented lounge bar.

Where you choose to stay will depend on what you plan to do in Beijing. The city is huge, so it pays off to stay close to the main attractions. This makes Dongchen a good option for sightseeing, especially Gulou and Dongzhimen. Nearby, Sanlitun is great if you want to enjoy the city’s nightlife, while CBD is perfect for shopping and fine dining.

Why we love it

♥ Very close to Destination and other great Beijing nightlife
♥ Good value for money
♥ Top Seller

A-Hotel is located inside the Beijing Worker’s Stadium, making it a true party location. Destination Club is just over 10 minutes away on foot, with other popular gay bars like Kai Bar and Alfa equally nearby. Sanlitun bar street is also walking distance, so you will never have a boring night while staying here. Because of this exceptional location, A-Hotel is a Top 100 seller on Travel Gay Asia.

The hotel decor is modern and colorful, if not a bit tired in places. The rooms are spacious with nice facilities – check out the Superior Fashion Room with an in-room bathtub. Due to the location inside the stadium, it is an unusual layout, with very long corridors that only have rooms on one side.

Overall, the best thing about A-Hotel is its location and good value for money – stay here if you plan to make the most of Beijing’s nightlife, or if you enjoy a unique independent hotel. A-Hotel is one of the most booked gay-friendly hotels in Beijing, especially for party boys.

♥ Perfect location for gay nightlife airport transfers and general sightseeing
♥ High standard of service
♥ The original artwork adds an interesting touch to every room

AC Embassy Hotel (also known as AC Art Museum Hotel) is located in Sanlitun, an easy 20-minute walk away from Destination Club. It’s ideally placed on Dongzhimen Outer Street, exactly in between two metro stations, Agricultural Exhibition Center (Line 10) and Dongzhimen (Line 2 and Airport Line). These links provide easy transport to key landmarks in the city, including Tiananmen Square and the National Stadium.

The hotel itself is high-end but slightly old-fashioned (unless lots and lots of marble is your thing). It is also spotless, comfortable, and well-maintained. Original artwork is featured in every room and common area, and there is even a gallery space with a rotation of works by Chinese artists.

Service is of the standard you would expect for a 4-star hotel. The staff do not always speak fluent English, but are friendly and always happy to help.

Why we love it

♥ Fun sexy decor
♥ Great location in the heart of Sanlitun
♥ Nice extra touches like daily fresh fruit

This boutique hotel specializes in compact yet lavishly decorated rooms. The style is fun, unique and purposely sexy: round beds, faux fur throws, in-room jacuzzi tubs, and plenty of metallics and animal prints. A perfect choice for attention-grabbing Insta posts and for couples, as long as you don’t mind the relatively small space.

Sanlitun Mark Jacobs Boutique Hotel is also extremely well located in the center of Sanlitun. Destination Club is a 20-minute walk away, and the surrounding area is filled with other great nightlife, dining, shopping, and entertainment options.

The hotel can be a bit difficult to find since it is housed in a larger building. It is also not signed as Mark Jacobs Boutique hotel: look for signage marked “R-Kiss Hotel” when you get to the address. This is one of the most booked gay-friendly hotels in Beijing.

Why we love it

♥ Excellent location close to gay nightlife and transport links
♥ Affordable nightly rates
♥ Very good food and breakfast

Asia Hotel is very well located near the Worker’s Stadium, less than a 10-minute walk from Destination Club and a 5-minute walk from Dongsishitiao metro station (Line 2). It is an independent Chinese hotel with a 5-star rating, although it is simpler than other newer, more modern 5-star hotels. However, it is also very reasonably priced, making it a good intermediate hotel if you want to save some money.

The decor is a bit dated in some rooms, but is otherwise pleasantly neutral and understated. The secluded garden is a particularly pleasant addition, with a small pond, birds in cages, and places to sit. There is an indoor pool for swimmers, a small gym, and basic spa facilities. The food in the hotel’s four restaurants is delicious and authentic Chinese, including an excellent breakfast buffet.

Overall, Asia Hotel is lacking in some 5-star aspects, but has very good rates, a great location, and comfortable enough facilities. As long as you consider it as more of a mid-range choice, it is a very good option. With this in mind, it’s not surprising that the Asia Hotel is one of the most booked gay-friendly hotels in Beijing.

♥ Perfect location for exploring Sanlitun
♥ Stunning ultra-modern rooms
♥ Extremely attentive staff

InterContinental Beijing Sanlitun sits at the very top of Sanlitun Road, one of China’s trendiest streets and a Beijing nightlife hotspot. Here, you will find the biggest concentration of bars and clubs in the city, as well as a generous selection of international brand stores. The walk to Destination Club may be a bit too long – over half an hour – but you definitely won’t get bored in this location.

The rooms are all sleek, modern, and high-tech, with the cheapest category (“Classic”) still offering first-rate accommodation and amenities. The Executive rooms and Suites, however, do come with Club InterContinental privileges, including access to the excellent Club Lounge and its complimentary food and drinks throughout the day.

Food options are varied and all delicious, including separate Chinese and Japanese restaurants, a tapas bar, and a Western-style dining room. Meanwhile, the bars offer a selection of innovative cocktails with high-end contemporary surroundings.

Why we love it

♥ Panoramic city views in most rooms
♥ Excellent executive lounge for those extra perks
♥ Great transport links and nearby park

Part of the Hilton’s Conrad chain of luxury hotels, Conrad Beijing has all the usual features of a 5-star hotel. Lovely, carefully designed rooms with huge windows and sweeping city vistas? Check. State-of-the-art fitness and swimming facilities? Check. A generous selection of dining and drinking options? Check.

This hotel ticks all the boxes for a luxurious 5-star stay in Beijing, and comes with the reliability that accompanies a brand like Hilton, but there is little in the way of innovation or special extras. It is worth spending a little more for an executive room, giving you access to the Executive Lounge and its stunning city view. This also includes complimentary breakfast, afternoon tea, and happy hour drinks.

Destination Club is half an hour away on foot, which is just far enough that many people would prefer a taxi. However, there is plenty to do, see, eat, and drink in Chaoyang District, making this a great location in general. There is a nearby metro station (Hujialou, Lines 6 and 10) and Tuanjuehu Park next door is a wonderful local spot for strolling and people-watching. It even has a small (but clean and fun) water park for those hot summer days.
