Book into one of these Beijing hotels and enjoy the attractions of one of the world’s greatest cities.
The Oll Beautiful Garden Hotel Beijing has 200 guest rooms, all of which are well-lit, comfortable, and clean. This four-star hotel is ideally located in the central business area of Fengtai district, and is very suitable for business travel. A nearby budget hotel is the GreenTree Inn West Beijing. It’s very near the military and government offices, and walking distance to the China Millennium Monument, Military Museum, and Shijingshan Amusement Park. Rooms are clean and comfortable, each with a private bathroom, and offering free toiletries, high-speed Internet access, and cable TV.
Another inexpensive option is to book a stay at the Beijing Hutong Courtyard House, a bed and breakfast that costs very little yet gives you a truly authentic taste of China. All rooms are decorated in traditional Chinese style, with hand-carved furniture, but offer modern facilities. The Forbidden City is only a 30-minute walk from here, and other attractions, such as the Bell and Drum Tower, Behai Park, and the Sichachai area are only five to ten minutes away.
The Yuan Yuan Hot Spring Hotel Beijing along Tuanjie Lake Road in the Chaoyang district offers the benefits of a natural hot spring right within the metropolis. Each of its 55 guest rooms has its own bathroom, and offers cable TV and internet access. There is a Chinese restaurant on the second floor which offers classic Chinese food and room service from 7am to 9pm. Guests are invited to soak in the hotel’s hot bath, which is said to improve the skin, circulation, and immune system.
Other budget hotels to consider on your Beijing holiday are the Hotel Kapok Beijing, Days Inn Forbidden City, and the delightfully surprising Hotel Cote Cour S.L.
