The next lounge that I visited in the Beijing airport was the BGS Premier Lounge, which I accessed via Priority Pass. Like the Air China First Class Lounge, the lounge is up some stairs and open to the rest of the terminal, so it feels spacious and bright.

The food options were largely similar to the Air China lounge, with hot food options of items like dim sum, congee, and hot soy milk with Chinese donuts. One extra that this lounge had beyond the Air China lounge was a noodle bar with a dedicated chef, which looked good.

The lounge itself had plenty of seating, as they crammed a lot of seats in a decently large space. I was there pretty early in the day, so it wasn’t very crowded, but it seemed like even at more crowded times there would still be plenty of places to sit.

There was also a small business center, and the lounge advertised showers, but I did not utilize either.

Overall, the lounge was good for a Priority Pass lounge and comparable in many respects to the Air China First Class lounge with the main differences being the addition of a noodle bar and the lack of sleeping rooms.
