The Days Inn Forbidden City Beijing has a proud history. The hotel was once the sprawling courtyard complex of a well-known warlord. Today the hotel's 160 rooms provide a peaceful rest stop for travelers weary from sightseeing at the nearby Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, or shopping on Wangfujing Street. Guests can park for free -- a rarity in Beijing.

Rooms

The 160 modest-sized rooms stick to the basics: white linens, beige carpet and curtains. All rooms come with a workstation, mini-bar, safe, flat-screen television, and free high-speed Internet. The budget single rooms, in the basement, go for a cheaper rate than rooms on other floors.

Property features

This hotel's location is its prime selling point. A ten-minute walk takes guests to several of Beijing's most famous landmarks, including the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, and the National Theater. Shopping choices abound on nearby Wangfujing Street, and two convenient subway stations provide easy access to the rest of Beijing. The property's courtyard-style layout provides a welcome change from Beijing's many high-rise hotels. The hotel's restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The breakfast buffet includes both Chinese and Western dishes.

Perfect Location

Very convenient location with easy walking distance to Wanfujing (including subway) and the Forbidden City. Staff was very friendly providing recommendations for more local restaurants in an otherwise touristy neighborhood.

Good location

If you are taking a taxi from the airport, the drivers will have difficulty finding it, even if you have the address printed in Chinese. Pick a well known landmark nearby and have the address in Chinese. This should be helpful. The location is within walking distance of Forbidden City and Shopping Mall.

Needs cleaning

The hotel is located fine, walking distance to the nicer part of the city, were all the good hotels are located, were you can stay for almost the same money. The hallways and room carpet was dirty, disgusting, and the TV was on the side wall of the bed, while the air conditioning was straight ahead of the bed. The room was small.

They try to charge you for everything

-The reception did not call a taxi but led me to their own private taxi which did not run the taximeter -The currency exchange machine charges a transaction fee and the rate is pretty bad already -Business center and the shop are ridiculously expensive, and they are closed at night

Days inn Forbidden city

No taxi driver knew where it was, not good for getting to from the airport or getting back to when out. Poor wifi, kept dropping out, not good when trying to look something up. Room was not vaccumed in the 19 days there, most staff speak a little english. Room was very very basic. Breakfast was over priced and wanted to charge extra for everything. Very disapointed.

A place to rest your head

We travelled to 3 destinations. Beijing all you really need is a clean comfortable room and that is what we got. Five minutes walk to the underground and The Forbidden city, and the other way the pedestrianized shopping street with plenty of eating establishments. The receptionist was not very helpful, but the travel reception could not do enough, she booked our train tickets to Shanghai, and helped with directions several times.
