Taxi fare at midnight

I would just like to ask how much is a taxi fare from Beijing airport going to Days Inn Forbidden City? We will arrive past midnight, are there any additional costs?

Price depends on distance. I'd guess about 120rmb.

Thanks! Hotel is charging me CNY320 one way, so I guess taxi is better.

A metered taxi is probably always cheaper than a hotel car.

At midnight the starting price for a taxi is CNY 11, and CNY 2.4/km if above 3 km, it is nearly 27km from Beijing Airport to Days Inn Forbidden City, so it may charge you CNY95.

Normally the total price after 11PM (I think) is roughly 10% above the day price. Since taxi is cheap anyway, that is not a big deal.

Taxi is much cheaper then airport pick up.

If you take a cab, it will cost about 80 yuan daily but at night it may be 100 yuan at night as it will take a night fee.

Its a lot cheaper to get a taxi than the hotel car. For that time of night it will be around RMB100.

There are signs in English at the airport terminals for the taxi line. Have your hotel name & address written in Chinese to show the driver.

Got this from the BCIA website -- Additional 50% of the total fee will be charged as an allowance for the return trip if the single trip has exceeded 15km;

Is this true?
