Two words best describe our experience in this hotel- '' utterly dreadful''. Nothing could have prepared us for the dramatically poor rooms we were assigned here. Even allowing for the budget rooms we had booked, mainly because the Inn is next door to Forbidden City. They were dank, dark, airless, cheerless caverns. The Shawshank Redemption crossed my mind as I... More

The hotel is very close to the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square among others. Given that Beijing can be very congested traffic wise by car; it is therefore a plus that abovementioned sites can be visited by walking distance. The rooms are nothing special to write home about, but comfortable enough. The Wifi is not so good.

Stayed on business for two weeks. Had a budget room but it was clean, quiet, comfortable and was not disturbed by other hotel guests at all. The Cafe has good meals for reasonable prices given Beijing can be expensive. Close to Tian 'an East metro and easy to get a taxi if needed. At least one English speaking staff member... More

Don't expect a gleaming tower of glass and marble. The hotel is accessed via an alleyway and its ordinary appearance does fit in with the low-rise structures of the old city. That said, the Days Inn Forbidden City Hotel is ideally located a short walk from the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The reception... More

The hotel as such is nothing tosay about: a regular featureless dwelling for short-term visitors, but location is as great as the Great Wall itself. It's five minutes walk from the Forbidden City (hence its name), same distance to Tananmen Square, three minuted form the Bejing central market and main shopping street. Meanwhile, you can observe "hutons" from your window... More

We stayed 5 nights on the second floor of the main building, room was clean and the beds comfortable. The staff don't speak very little English so plan your tours from home. The wifi cut off all the time. I would stay here again. Always use a metred taxi and pay what's on the metre, they always want more!

I stayed here for 2 nights. The rooms are clean, but the room I was in was street level so a little loud during the night. It's in a very close location waking distance to Wangfujing street where there are lots of shopping malls and street stalls, food ect. The hotel staff are very helpful but not all speak English...

I was looking for a hotel that locates in the center of Beijing and this hotel is even beyond my expectations. It is about a quarter mile away from the Forbidden City and there are many stores and restaurants around, so it's not difficult to find a place of reasonable price and delicious food to dine. The service is satisfactory,... More

This is a small chain, on a side street between Wangfujing shopping street and Forbidden city. Easy access to metro, shopping, tourist attractions. I booked through CTRIP and was able to get a single room with a view and breakfast for the same price that most other sites offered a basement room, no breakfast. Breakfast is buffet, primarily Asian choices....which... More

English was very limited at this hotel but we found the same over most of our China trip. This location allowed us to walk to Tianamen Square and Forbidden City by ourselves and bus to Temple of Heaven. The hotel was older but rooms well appointed even though a little tired. We are an older couple and would recommend this... More
