Days Inn Forbidden City Beijing
Ranked #177 of 6,550 Hotels in Beijing
Reviewed 16 November 2010

An amazing location just 2 blocks from Tiananmen & Forbidden city, and 3 blocks to Wangfujing Street (shopping/restaurants). The hotel is very modern, no frills, clean, decent condition staff speak sufficient English.

The breakfast was included in the very cheap rate obtained on Agoda.com, while daily internet in the room (not wireless) was free!

HIGHLY recommend this hotel for those who monitor their budget without sacrificing quality. This is truly a gem!

We booked without breakfast, but we ordered it for our stay. Once, we were sleeping too long, we couldn`t get a breakfast, because the stuff changed the buffet for the lunch. therefore, we had to wait for the beginning of the lunch.

The other time, on 16.11.2010, we arrived at the breakfast room 4 minutes before closing. The responsable stuff said to us, that we can not have a breakfast, because they would close at 10.00, it would be too late. I said to him,: It`s 3 min before 10.00, but no coffee, no breakfast.

In Thailand, the stuff make the customer happy, but in this hotel, the stuff have to learn a lot about service.

The rooms are clean, but dusty, a Cuccaraca was running through our room, when we arrived,

The concierge/porter was helpful and friendly

Absolutely the best location, 2 blocks from Tiananmen & Forbidden city, 3 blocks to Wangfujing night market for cheap street stall grub, 1 block to McDonalds for a cheap breakfast with decent coffee & reasonably close to everything else you probably want to do as a tourist. The hotel is basic, without too many frills but it is modern, decent condition & everything works (even has 2 ply toilet paper, what more do you want). Staff english is passable & everyone was friendly/helpful. The breakfast (not inlcuded in our package) was very good, if a little pricey. The deluxe rooms are on the upper floors & are worth the extras couple of dollars; the economy rooms are in the basement. If you need guides/tours; Iko & her husband Jason run Beijing-Travels (www.beijing-travels.com, sales@beijing-travels.com, 24 hours Line:86-10-13801067568 86-10-84023595) were terrific; reasonably priced, very friendly and took us out on their day off to accomadate a last minute tour; Highly Recomended

The room is clean and tidy, staff is willing to help. Despite the room is small, probably most people only stay there at night.

Location has been mentioned by others, can visit Tiananmen square, imperial palace as well as the subway station by 10 minutes walk. When walked to another direction, can reach Wangfujing Street by also 10 minutes walk. Between the Tiananmen square and the hotel is Nan Chi Zi Da Jie, which is a narrow street that you can find low cost food for local Beijing people. You can experience the culture and dishes of local people from there. Probably this is also the place rich in food shops near the hotel apart from those in Wangfujing Street that specifically for tourists with altered style.

I would recommend this hotel to my friends.

This is a nicer version of other Days Inn ive stayed it. Is is nice to know that you can stay at an american hotel chain abroad and the same standard for service and cleanliness will still apply. I ahd no problems and my room was great the 4 days i stayed there. They even had HBO and room service which in some hotels in china are not easily found. The western breakfast was also very good.

I think it certainly is a cultural thing of expecting China hotl staff to attend to you when you are standing at the front desk. We booked a superior double and I would not recommend this romm it is in the basement section with a dark small window and the BED!!!!!! What is it with hard beds in China!!!!! it was more comfortable sleeping on the floor the carpet had more give than the hard bed it was like wood. The location is great with it's closeness to The Forbidden City and Metro lines.

Comfortable, well run, Courtyard style hotel with Hutong atmosphere and the Forbidden City a few minutes away, yet also just a few minutes walk from the bright lights and modern buildings and night life of bustling Beijing. Staff very helpful and spoke good English. Hotel clean and neat and the aircon worked well, as did the money changing machine in the reception area. We stayed in other hotels in Beijing and this one was value for money and the location was great, especially if you only have a few days in Beijing and you wish to be located in downtown.
