Hotel was average but a good base to visit the sights. The bad was uncomfortable but I suppose some might find it comfortable depending on your preference.
It was about a 30 minute walk to Tiananmen square and the forbidden city, we went through the forbidden city then out the back and into jinshang park, if you climb up to the temple you get some really good views of the city. To get back to Tiananmen square you will have to walk around the forbidden city or pay to get back in.
Tiananmen square was busy and we continued down past the square to the shopping street, quite a hike and it was hot so we got the tram back up the street for about £2 each.
Breakfast in the hotel was good with plenty of choice. Staff more than helpful and pleasant.
