The hotel is located less than two blocks for the Tiananmen east subway stop which is very handy for after you have seen the sites in old Beijing you can move on to other parts of the city. You can get to and from the airport in day time hours only on the subway there are a few station changes... More

It may not be the best hotel in town; certainly the staff in the breakfast area seem less than interested and two doors to the bathroom makes both the sleeping area and the bathroom small and confusing, but it is clean and close to the Square the Forbidden city and the local market and shops. On balance go for it.

The location is top. 5 min to the forbidden city and Tian’an Men Square. As well very close to the shopping street Wangfujing. The hotel is still ok but getting older and that can be seen in the room. The wifi is included but not very stable. So if you need a vpn be prepared for many disconects. After the... More

Basic hotel providing basic needs. Price without breadfast so consider expensive but near wangfujing shopping belt n forbiddrn city tianman square. Also short walk in between two subwa6 stations. Watch out for illegal touts asking you for other hotel reservations. Ignored strangers while in Beijing is needed. General experience OK n environment is quite at night with good sleep. Internet...

It was okay... Nothing special. Our room was very moldy and reeked of cigarette smoke. The breakfast buffet was good enough with made to order omeletts which were not bad but I would say to eat out because it is expensive when compared to other restaurants. I will say that the hotel is very convenient if you want to walk... More

Stayed here for 3 nights as part of a trip through China. Location: The hotel's location is great for visiting Tian-anmen Square and the Forbidden City. It is also quite close to the Wangfujing area where you can find lots of restaurants and shops, and of course the street-food area. Expect to travel by metro for most other places of... More

Quite place despite being near to the main road. Walking distances to Tiananmen, Forbidden City and Wangfuqing. Room is clean and spacious. Located nearby along the main road is a place selling one of the best dumplings in town. Also located nearby is a massage place. Good for soothing muscles after shopping at Wangfuqing

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
