We stayed here after walking the streets lost for an hour or so and all the places more to our budget wouldn't let us stay because we were tourists. We got 2 single rooms for 700 rmb for one night so like usual, make sure you haggle your price or book online. This was more than we planned to pay for the night and claimed we didn't have any money left for the crazy deposit she was asking for since it would have left us dry until geting to an atm so she let us off. One receptionist could speak english which was handy. The room was nice but the floor was a bit dirty. The bathroom + shower were really good after that day of travels. About a 10 min walk to tiananmen square where you can also walk to the forbidden city.
