How many mosques are there in China

In of 2014 there were 39,135 mosques in China, 25,000 of these are in Xinjiang, a north-west autonomous region, having a high density of one mosque per 500 muslims. In China, mosques are called Qīng Zhēn Sì (清真寺, “Pure truth temple”), a name which was also used by Chinese Jews for synagogues.

The Muslim friendly hotel means a hotel that has Islamic characteristics that can provide basic facilities that are more friendly to Muslim customers such as a Qibla direction indicator, the availability of prayer tools, the presence of halal food / list of nearby restaurants that provide halal food.

Like other tourists, Muslim travelers coming from Islamic countries have particular requirements when they choose the destination for their vacation. Among these requirements, Muslims are concerned about the availability of halal compliant foods (no pork or alcohol in food) and a clean place to pray.


Many international hotels in China do serve halal food that is slaughtered in accordance with the teachings of Islamic Sharia and is free of any substances forbidden by Islam such as pork and alcohol.

Other Islamic countries such as Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Oman and Brunei continue to be popular with Muslim tourists. Among non-OIC countries, Singapore, Thailand, the UK, Japan and Taiwan remain the top five respectively, but show improved scores on the index.

The public spaces are very nicely appointed, and the staff is very helpful, if somewhat English challenged overall. The hotel room itself (a Business Room on a middle floor) was suitably spacious, with a great view of the surroundings (Xiyuan is pretty much the tallest building around). The bed was VERY firm, which I’ve encountered in other Chinese hotels, and the climate control was a bit flaky, in part due to the weather.

There is a “Muslim” restaurant on the first floor that serves food only very infrequently, a lobby tea space which doesn’t appear to serve food (though on occasion I saw people with noshing stuff, they claimed they couldn’t do that for me), a “Chinese” restaurant which I ate in with my Chinese colleagues, but they were loathe to seat me in on my own, referring me instead to their 26th floor rotating restaurant, which mostly did buffet-style food. I never did get sorted out where i should be eating there, but as it was I wasn’t there long enough for it to be a big concern.

The location, near the Beijing Zoo, is not super-close to downtown (~15 min cab ride to Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City), but is convenient to the subway, so one can get around.

A good hotel. Reasonably priced with good comfortable rooms.

Breakfast was good and the in house muslim restaurant offers authentic western china food which is very delicious.

With our efficient smile service and modern facilitates all guests can enjoy an unforgettable living experience and refined gourmet food, no matter for business or leisure.
The hotel’s restaurants were nice (impressive buffet at breakfast), but it was a little surprising that the Chinese restaurant on the third floor did not have a menu in English. Yes, I understand that it was a Chinese restaurant in the middle of China, but it is in an international Hilton hotel that caters to foreigners so it was a little bit surprising. I was able to order based on the pictures on the iPad that was brought by a restaurant staff member who spoke a little bit of English (and who seemed to be the only employee in the restaurant who spoke any English) and the food was good.
The main restaurant on the first floor had English descriptions of the food, more staff who spoke English, and a better selection of all types of food.
Secondly, this hotel is about 20 minutes from the city center and it costs 20 yuan to get there each trip (30 yuan to Grand International Bazaar). Not costly, but at night time, you don’t really have places to wander around… Everything’s in-house.
Each room in this hotel is very spacious. It’s really big. But please ask for the rooms near the lifts. Two of mine was at the very end of their respective floors.
It’s quite a journey from the lift to the end since this is a big hotel. Takes about 2 minutes to walk each time. Tell them you need the rooms in the middle of the hotel. Trust me, it will be so much better for you this way.

The hotel is also in the heart of the financial and technological district – Zhong Guan Cun and within close proximity to renowned universities with easy access to two subway lines and international airports.
The hotel is wonderful. All staff was extremely courteous and helpful. They spoke good english and understood us easily. The restaurant had a wide choice of cuisine which included Chinese, Western, Japanese and Indian. Buffet lunch and dinner were rather expensive.
Beef, lamb and chicken, we were told was halal, which improved meal options for Muslims. There is a nice garden by the restaurant which makes the ambience very pleasant. Location was not bad.
The hotel was fantastic and the service impeccable. Chinese people have such a willingness to serve and assist people, we really felt like royalty during our stay. It was very easy to find taxis from the hotel to the tourist spots in Beijing. I would have loved to be a little closer to the Tiannemen square area, but other than that our stay was perfect. Be sure to try out the spa at the hotel as it is pure indulgence! The breakfast buffet was huge but because we only eat halal the choice was a bit limited – I did however do justice to the pastries!
The hotel has a lovely garden which you must take a walk around. This is one of the things that I found so appealing in China – the gardens and parks, it’s all so beautiful.

Shangri-La is the brand of hotel I like to stay in when I travel to China.

The location of the hotel is good to me, close to Summer palace and Beijing university. It’s not close to major tourist attractions though. There are some decent restaurants close by. And zizhuyuan park is walking distance, a very pretty local park, worth a couple of hours wondering inside and absorb local sceneries.

I stayed in the old wing, the room is decent and clean, nothing to complain about and nothing spectacular either.

There is a garden at the back of the hotel, very pretty. It’s a good place to have a afternoon drink and rewind. But the service can use some improvement, it was very slow and didn’t seem to understand what we ordered.

Used the gym once, it was small but OK.
