Back to basics at budget hotel in neighborhood near Forbidden City

Guests get a flavor of everyday life in China while staying at this 162-room budget property. The surrounding neighborhood streets are typical Beijing hutongs, or narrow lanes, bustling with bicycles and people. Guests can rent a bicycle to travel around Beijing as the locals do. A five-minute walk takes guests to the quieter north gate of the Forbidden City and picturesque Jingshan Park. Loft rooms offer a twist on suites.

Highlights
  • Five-minute walk to the Forbidden City and Jingshan Park
  • Neighborhood location provides a glimpse of everyday life in China
  • Bicycle rentals
  • Loft rooms
Rooms

Flowers and burgundy bed runners and throw pillows add a stylish touch to the 162 simply furnished rooms. All rooms include a flat-screen television, mini-bar, desk, safe, and high-speed Internet. Standard rooms are small by modern standards at 236-269 sq ft. Twin rooms offer more room to stretch out. The loft rooms (492 sq ft) offer a different spin on suites. A king-sized bed upstairs in the loft overlooks a sitting area below.

Features

Guests can stop for breakfast or sample Peking duck for lunch or dinner in the Chinese restaurant. A caffeine fix is available at the Coffee House. Rent a bicycle to travel around Beijing as the locals do. Book sightseeing tours and train tickets at the travel desk.

location was good but the staff were not helpful

i was happy with the location of the hotel easy walking distance to attractions, jingshan park, forbidden city and Tienanmen square. I was not satisfied with the staff who i found not helpful at all. I asked them to book a taxi and was told yes they would book it but to find out the next day after they told me to wait for the taxi that it was not coming. then i was told to go find one by myself outside. i also had to continually ask for toilet paper for the room as after the room was cleaned everyday there was never any replaced.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

always have your hotel name written in Chinese and maybe a Google map page printed out because of the black taxi's at the airport when you arrive.

Pretty Good location, Great Value, with some drawbacks

We stayed at the King Parkview hotel for nearly one week. The hotel is a bit hard to find at first, because it is tucked away in an ally. However, the alley is not touristy and feels like an authentic Chinese alley (you will see a lot more locals than tourists in the alley). The location is great being in the center of town. However, there is one drawback, if you are planning on using the subway, you will need to grab a 109 bus to the dongsi station, because it is a bit of a walk. The wireless internet is not in all rooms (works in the lobby quite well, though it isn't blindingly fast). The service is good, and even though some of the staff does not speak English, they were almost always helpful. One guy that was really helpfull was a manager named Ken. He speaks English, he's friendly, and he really helps you find things you are looking for.

Walking distance to everything

This hotel was close to most of the big attractions in Beijing. It was nice to be able to walk everywhere or catch a bus close by. The hotel offers some inexpensive day tours, which was great! Aside from those things though, the reception desk was not very helpful and the hotel offers only basic amenities. If you are traveling on a budget it is good, but expect to figure things out on your own. I was not fond of the 200 Yaun deposit for the minibar as I was traveling with cash only and had a limited amount. If you only plan on being at your hotel to sleep, this is great choice, but if you are looking for someplace to relax and enjoy yourself, it is probably worth the extra cash to go to a nicer hotel.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you are planning on doing things on your own, make sure to have any destinations written in Chinese. I also suggest planning the areas you want to go for meals, and mapping them out.
