Overview

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.

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.

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.

Days inn Forbidden city

Would not recommend Mon, Mar 3, 2014
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.

Attractions

Forbidden city is very close by and well worth a good look around. Tian an man square is opposite

A place to rest your head

Would recommend Sun, Oct 20, 2013
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

Would recommend Sun, Oct 13, 2013
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.

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....
