Days Inn

Would recommend Mon, Feb 27, 2012
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.

Nightlife hint

Lotrs of spivas and who*es neaby. Take care!

Perfect Location within walking distance of Tiananmen Square and Wangfujing Street. Comfortable, modern hotel. Excellent buffet breakfast.

Explore Wangfujing Street (for supermarket, restaurants and metro).

more than i expected

Would recommend Wed, Nov 9, 2011
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 hint

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.

Great Location - Great Price

Would recommend Fri, Nov 4, 2011
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.

Dining

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

Good value but needs atention to cleanliness

Would not recommend Sun, Oct 9, 2011
Budget rooms are in the basement. The corridor is quite dingy and the rooms do not have a full window. The grouting in the shower in our room was black with mould and needed to be cleaned badly. The reception area was nice but a bit worn and the front desk, which is where your first impression forms, looked as though it had not been dusted for a long time and the marble counter looked as though it had not been cleaned in a long time. The location was great, within walking distance of the Forbidden City, Tien'anmen Square and subways. Overall view of the hotel is that it could do with a good clean.

Attractions

Forbidden City, Tian'anmen Square and Oriental Plaza Shopping Mall all within a few minutes walk

Overall, good experience

Would recommend Thu, Sep 15, 2011
We were looking for something close to the sights and metro station that was reasonable, this is what we got with the days inn forbidden city. You can't get a better location! We could walk to the forbidden city, Tinanmen square and the night market within 10 minutes. There's a metro stop about 5 minutes away. Breakfast was great with lots of selection. Yes, we were put in a 'basement room' but it wasn't bad. It did have faint moldy smell but it wasn't overwhelming. The shower was a little dated, take shower shoes and you'll be fine. Remember, you're staying in China, the cleanliness standards are a little different.... The bed was comfy. The staff want very helpful, but in their defense their English wasn't great. If I were back in Beijing I would stay there again.

Dining

If you're into beer, you MUST go to Great Leap Brewery! It's a great craft brewery that uses local ingredients to make really fantastic beer. Located in the Hutong district-look them up!

Budget is synonymous with unclean at this hotel...

Would not recommend Tue, Sep 13, 2011
Good points You can't beat the location. You are in walking distance of The Forbidden City, Wangfajung Street and Tianamen square. Bad points: Room-I don't know how it is for people who had "deluxe" rooms but my husband and I booked a budget room. We tried to upgrade when we reached the airport because I heard mixed reviews about the budget rooms. None available...so here we are...a room whose carpets obviously had not been cleaned in some time (thank goodness for the free paper flipflops they give you), the bathroom stall (I swear, I didn't know how much mold can grow on a wall) wall fixtures were literally falling off the walls (we closed the bathroom door and wall fixtures literally fell off the wall). Breakfast-You're better off going to the Mall at Oriental plaza for some pastries than wasting your money on the breakfast. Staff-mediocre but what stood out to me is we asked for a taxi to go to Houhai Lake, he gets us one, he and the taxi driver have some sort of conversation (it's apparent that for some reason, this taxi driver doesn't want to take us there and the bellhop is just nodding his head like, yeah, yeah, ok) we get in and he refuses to turn on his meter. Gratefully, he only charged us 20 RMB which apparently isn't that far off but the whole situation was quite suspicious. Overall, I wouldn't stay at this hotel again even if I had the option of a deluxe room. There are better options out there for the price...

Great Location & Value

Would recommend Mon, Aug 29, 2011
Not only is the general location very good (easy walk to Forbidden City, 2 Subway Stops, and a shopping mall with many restaurants and even a grocery), but it is just off a main road on a less-used alley. Therefore, the street noise is greatly reduced. In fact, we didn't hear any. The room was a bit on the small side, but clean and comfy. Would stay here again.

Dining

Nearby is a shopping mall (Oriental Plaza) that has an extensive selection of restaurants on the B1 level. Options include: fast food, sit-down restaurants, take-away, bakeries, and even a grocery store. Also between the hotel and the mall is "snack street," if you want to try a variety of street fare.

Close to the Sights of Beijing

Would recommend Tue, Jun 28, 2011
The hotel was as advertised. Incredibly convenient to the Forbidden City and Tiannamen Square. The staff was helpful, although at the reduced rate I paid for the room, I was given a basement room, not bad with a small window near the ceiling. The hotel was accommodating, free internet [no WiFi], and a free adaptor to borrow. The staff was fluent in English and arranged cabs for me and good walking directions.

Attractions

Go to The Forbidden City early, get the audio guide and plan on spending 5 hours. Don't miss the Inner and Outer Courtyards.

Would recommend Thu, Jun 16, 2011
I thought the location was great - just a few blocks from Tienanmen Square, Forbidden City, and the metro. Also, there is a great dumpling place on the same block. The rooms were very small, but nicely updated and quite comfortable.
