Budget-friendly courtyard-style hotel near the Forbidden City

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.

Highlights
  • Convenient location near the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square
  • Free parking
  • Free high-speed Internet
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.

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.

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.

Great Location, Hotel Okay

The hotel could use some updates and a refresh. Carpet is old and stained, and the bathrooms are getting a bit dingy as well. Clean though, and the location was fantastic. Close to the metro and lots of sights including Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. Staff was helpful, restaurant was fine, although restaurant service was not good. All is all, recommended.

good for the money

Beijing is very expensive, this hotel is cheap and good for the price, don't expect something extraordinary, but is the best located, is in almost the same block of the forbidden city, and near 3 blocks of a main av full of stores, and mc'donalds....

The internet was very slow. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room is nice. You might find people smoking in corridor but it seems its normal in China.

There is a restaurant with "Muslim" in its name. It has nothing to do with Muslims but the food is good. They have English menu with pictures.

Great stay.

This hotel has a great location and staff very friendly & helpful. The first room here at this hotel was on the first floor and was a standard room very clean comfortable. I switched rooms during my stay and saved some money to a basement budget room and is basically the same room but smaller. Nice area and close to many sights. Will stay here again.

Very good location to every attractions.

It's very good location to every attractions, such as Forbidden City, Tian'an Men Square, and Wangfujing Shopping Street. And many small restaurants and little shops near by. Very close to the bus and subway stations too.
