What is the best area to stay in Beijing?

Hi-My family is making its first trip to Asia and I am a bit confused as to what the best area to stay in Beijing would be. My kids are 6 & 11. We want to be close to the action.

Any other tips would be great!

Hi,

I recommend you stay in hu tong hotel will be more interesting and explore the real beijing life. But if you want stay i ciy center ,Novotel Xinqiao Beijing hotel is quite nice with very good location.

Hope your family have a good trip:)

What does best mean for you?

Close to what action? Bars? Shopping? A specific attraction?

The sights and places to see are almost always far apart but staying in the city center will definitely help.

Thanks for the suggestions. By best I mean walking distance to restaurants, shopping and a site or two.

Wangfujing is probably the best bet, walking distance to Tiananmen/Forbidden City, its a massive shopping street with a lot to offer, but if you plan on taking taxis, this area can be nearly impossible to find cabs, especially during the week.

Staying in the Xidan area is also very good, lots of food, shopping, transport, and also very close to Forbidden city.

I second Xidan. The Grand Mercure is pretty decent.
