Beijing’s Hotel Jen works out travellers’ pains

Shangri-La Hotels & Resorts Hotel Jen Beijing is one for the energetic.

Located on the first 22 floors of the China World building in Guomao, Hotel Jen Beijing features an impressive take on the tired, old hotel gym - the Trainyard health club. It is a workout space rivalling the best in contemporary gym and health club facilities anywhere.

Visitors can burn the calories 24/7 in the club's twenty-five-metre indoor heated pool, full-size boxing ring and Mixed Martial Arts training space, or specialised cardio, pilates, and weights areas. Afterwards, relax in the onsite Jacuzzi or Sauna to ease those aches and pains away. For the fitness-conscious tourist or business traveller, there are few more enticing options -  especially amid the often smoggy surrounds of China's capital.

Chic and relaxed design

Guests will also find plenty to like about the hotel's 450 rooms and suites, ranging from 40 sqm to 75 sqm in size, with the larger rooms featuring a kitchenette and breakfast bar as well as super-fast WiFi, and chic, relaxed interior design.

True to Hotel Jen's penchant for open, inclusive spaces, the property also features Prototype: less a business centre and more a purpose-built co-working space, with 13 meeting rooms, 250 people multi-function facility and even its very own cafe.

Beersmiths - the only Gastropub in the Guomao area - sees a little of the West's obsession with craft breweries pour into Beijing's CBD. Many of the brews are handcrafted onsite in large copper vats, complimented by contemporary pub cuisine in a stylish setting.

Matt Shepherd  In the hayseed towns of southern China, municipalities where the population barely nudges 700,000 people, little more than a dozen words of Cantonese will get you a pretty riotous response.
