Is this hotel within walking distance of The Forbidden City? Thanks!
No definitely not but the subway is close and easy to use. However this hotelnis a great choice because it is in an old area with places you can walk to like the big park and waterways. It is very different to the high rise areas. Much nicer.

Dear guest, By Metro: Get off at Beihai North station (line 6 exit A), and go straight ahead about 200 meters, then turn right at Jingyongli Hutong, and then go all the way down for about 10 minutes (about 600 meters), when you see a huge tree, the grey light box and glass wall, you are in front of our hotel.
