Wonderful!! I was enjoy this trip.

I like the garden in this hotel. the only thing i wanted to complain which was about Budget Room. All the Budget Room are in downstairs, and there is no elevator to get down, so you have to carry your luggage to downstairs by yourself.

Great Location - Great Price

It was a great location. Close to the Forbidden City and to a large outdoor shopping mall with food courts. The "budget" room is in the basement and is very small.

Food courts are located in the outdoor shopping mall, which is probably a 10-15 minute walk from the hotel.

more than i expected

this is a great location, near sights, shopping and restaurants. its clean and most of the staff is willing to help, and help you book tours of great wall, etc. the restaurant downstairs, while a bit pricey for lunch, is convenient and a good value for breakfast. If you venture to other parts of the city to go to bars or restaurants using cabs, know that the cab drivers will try to rip you off (80-100 rmb) to get back to this location, even when it only was 25 to get there...

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

there's some fun bars, outdoor markets in an area of town where some expats hang out. watch for the aforementioned cab drivers who will rip you off (as everyone seems to want to do) but if you go into the bars where there are people on the street trying to pull you in, get a price list of the drinks before you order... you can get charged 40rmb per beer, and 30 for a dish of peanuts you didn't order.

Days Inn

No problem whatsoever. Standard amenities for a Days Inn hotel. I partially chose the hotal for the location, but, though near the Forbidden City, other amenities such as shops are not particularly good here.

A couple nights in Beijing

The strongest point of this hotel is that it is a 10 minute walk from the gates of Forbidden City. I don't think there are many other hotels this close. The staff are friendly and the restaurant is good with a mix of Asian and Western cuisine. Sometimes it seems the staff has little experience, i.e. they set the table but forget the utensils. Some of the staff speak very good English, so no worries there. From a Western viewpoint, the room was average and nothing to write home about. Maybe from a Chinese perspective it is better. Order the deluxe room; at least it will be above ground. Bring your own shaving stuff or you will have to buy what is in the room. The bed was fine. I would have preferred wireless internet. The hotel supplies a LAN cable and the wall jack works once you figure out which jack to use. The other jack is for something else but it isn't clearly marked. Overall, I'd gladly stay there again. No regrets

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Try to find a hotel within a short walk of many attractions. You can save a lot of money and look at what you want to see by taking the tours without a guide. Usually, these hotels are near the centre of the city so there are night attractions as well.

Good value for the location

Economical and comfortable choice close to major attractions. Free wireless internet did not reach our room but worked in the lobby and cafe. Helpful staff but have limited English. Good shower, and beds not quite as hard as typically found in China.
