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.

Ok hotel

Very small rooms with mold in the showers. The room was clean but the bathroom was not. Location is near the Forbidden City and Tianamen square which is nice. Hotel was quiet. The bed was very firm. The breakfast is 69 yuan ($10). So, for the extra 20 or more dollars per night,you can get a lot nicer hotel that includes breakfast. The gift shop (size of a walk in closet) is seldom open (only saw it open for 10 minutes over the two days I was there)

Not a good value for the money

The Days Inn Forbidden City isn't your best choice for a hotel in Beijing. My room was in the basement, and the carpet was wet and moldy in spots. I was moved to another room, which was slightly better -- but even then the door key never worked, and the hotel had to call housekeeping to let me in each time I went out and came back.

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

Good Location, but bugs in the room

The location was great, but my room had bugs. The management did very little to resolve the problem. Additionally, the room did have a weird smell. Otherwise it was fine.

Great Location and a spotless room

As a China scholar who has stayed at many moderately priced hotels, this was one of the best. It is very convenient: it is close to both Wangfujing and Tiananmen Square. The economy room (in the basement) that I stayed in was a bit cramped, but it was very clean, especially the bathroom. It was also conveniently rigged electronically, so you didn't have to do a long search to plug in the laptop. The lighting was also good for reading. In short, it was a very comfortable and practical room.
