Like any other part of Beijing, the area around the Days Inn Forbidden City Beijing is old, smells like trash, and the traffic is crazy, but the closeness to the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square cannot be beat. It will take less time to walk to these two places than to take transportation to them and be dropped off as... More

This location can't be beat, it's on a hutong just off the main road half way between the gates to the Forbidden City and shopping/restaurants on Wangfujing. Reasonably clean and very good value. Front desk staff speak decent English and are very helpful for writing out things for taxi drivers and ticket vendors. The free wifi works very well but... More

We booked this hotel after having problems with our card, and it really was a last resort! The room we had smelt of damp and mould, we slept in it for one night and woke up covered in bites and sores! We complained to the front of house staff who just laughed at us due to a language barrier, and... More

The hotel is neat and tidy and well maintained. It is conveniently located in the heart of the city, so easy to travel to forbidden city, tiananmen square, summer palace and other places to visit. Overall a pleasant stay and value for money!

Located two blocks away from the Forbidden City and one block from the shopping district of Wangfujing. Very near to the Wangfujing & Tianmen East subway stations so guess one won't go wrong if your budget is within this hotel. Ask for rooms in Block 1 (seems newer to me) but be cautioned that its smaller in size compared to... More

Flirting with spontaneity, we booked the Days Inn via the internet on the way from Nanjing Airport to Beijing. Our taxi driver seemed to grunt in disapproval when we told him our destination but we couldn't tell at the time if it was an opinion or just a gassy lunch. Tucked away off the main road and walking distance from... More

I was a little nervous booking this hotel but it turned out great. Bedding was clean and there was free wifi. It is definitely a LOT better than the typical Days Inn you find in the US. Keep in mind there's really no such thing as non-smoking in China. The room was non-smoking but the towels all smelled like smoke... More

This was by far one of the worst hotels stays in my 21 days in South East Asia. It was 'cold' and 'damp' and the space was quite small. The washroom was nasty and tub was overflowing; and they took an hour and a half to respond to my calls. On the day of check in I felt like I... More

Great for short stay. Hard to beat the location, walking distance to wangfujing, forbidden city, tian'anmen square, and subway line one. We felt safe walking back to the hotel even at midnight. Rooms were quite small but clean. Most of the staff we met do not speak English.

Excellent location right next to forbidden city. Subway line one, get off at Tian' anmen east, exit B (north east exit). When leaving the subway, just follow the road. Then second road to your left and you will find it on your left hand side. Clean and neat hotel, although it felt quite old. Wifi did not work all the... More
