What's the best way to make the most of Beijing by foot?

Plan out where you are going to go before you get there. Beijing is spread out and may not be able to see everthing you want by foot. The MTR is easy to navigate and most signage on the MTR is in English as well as Chinese.

  • Cheap for Beijing, right in the thick of things for local food, walking distance to airport shuttle, subway, restaurants, shopping & Tiananmen Square.

    Alexandra, Young couple from Australia
  • Excellent for on a budget. Good location near forbidden city and park. Alleyway is near traditional hutongs so you're right in the midst if local life. Not for the faint hearted. Good on site travel agency who booked both a fab trip to Great Wall and our airport transport. Great value. Only let down was showers needed a good clean (limescale). Water was hot and pressure was good. Bed linen clean and other areas of room clean.

    Lynne, Family with young children from the United Kingdom
  • We chose a Deluxe double and were allocated a very spacious well appointed room with king bed and quality linen on the ninth floor. There was comfortable seating, a large desk and a spacious bathroom with bath and shower. The hotel was well located only a 5 minute walk to Dongsi subway station and easy walk back from the north exit of the Forbidden city. Take the subway or just walk 20-30 minutes down Wangfujing Street via the Donghuamen market to Tiananmen Square. This is an excellent choice of hotel in Beijing.

    GREGORY, Mature couple from Australia
  • Can't beat the location, 200meters from Tiananmen Square, a few yard from Qianmen St (equivalent of Oxford St in London) and underground station. Bar in the hotel is excellent, very good western food very good price. My partner really enjoyed his English food there after failing to get this in other 5 star and 4 star hotels in Beijing. The building is beautiful, typical Chinese courtyard architecture. I heard the owner paid more than £10 million pounds a few years ago, now worth a lot more, I am not surprised at all.

    Xin, Mature couple from China
  • The location is great, rich breakfast from 7:00 till 10:30am, wide comfortable rooms, clean, excellent internet. The staff speak English. Very convenient location, just 2 stops by metro line 2 is Hongqialo Pearl market and Forbidden City. The International Airport is 50 minutes with one transfer. Near the hotel there are many shopping malls, supermarkets, restaurants, cafes and bakeries. I recommend the hotel for business and leisure travelers.

    Jordanka, Mature couple from China
  • I hate 5 star hotels with their marble foyers and uniformed concierges: 161 is informal, comfortable and friendly with the quirkiest coffee shop in Beijing and the price can't be beaten. The rooms are spartan but clean and the staff are attentive. But by far the best quality is its location on Lishi Hutong with its selection of great and cheap restaurants. Beakfast 2 doors away: dumpling soup and a seamer of 10 xiaolongbao RMB12 for two.

The Opposite House Excellent 8.8 Great design and location. The bed and beddings were superb.
Capital Hotel Beijing Good 7.8 "Kou xiang tang" is the Chinese word for chewing gum, which I had sat on somewhere before I arrived at the hotel. I didn't know how to say it when I talked to the front-desk staff, but they figured out I needed special attention from the laundry service. I got the trousers back in about six hours, good as new. They were incredibly helpful, and because I had to order room service for lunch that day, I also found the best bacon cheeseburger in Beijing! The bed was great, and the shower was excellent. I will stay there again when in Beijing.
Redwall Hotel Beijing Pleasant 6.5 Very clean, helpful, English speaking staff, good size room, & a great location. This is the hotel I always stay at when in Beijing, ( my third time)
Regent Beijing Excellent 8.6 Comfort Well equipped Facilities
Beijing Double Happiness Courtyard Hotel Excellent 8.9 everything was great if I come back to China definitely I will stay in this hotel
Kempinski Hotel Beijing Lufthansa Centre Very good 8.3 The ambience of the lobby lounge and bar with its superb lighting and décor.The quiet of the river view rooms which give refuge from the assault of noise on the Beijing streets.
Courtyard 7 Wonderful 9 Delightful ambience and the underfloor heating was a treat in winter. Good brekkie too.
Raffles Beijing Hotel Excellent 8.7 Superb location, very friendly staff.
Jianguo Hotel Good 7.9 I stayed with my 26 year old son in a Club Suite (after speaking to the staff we decided to upgrade to the Club Suite). This was an excellent decision as after being out all day the Club Facilities (tasty snacks & drinks between 6 & 8 each evening) are included in the rate. This was great as I stayed on my own for the last 2 days/nights so felt very comfortable relaxing and having a little supper on my own. Well worth the upgrade. The hotel also has a seperate tour company who operate a desk at reception. I was able to easily organise a private half day tour to The Houtong district which was excellent. This is a hotel I would highly recommend. The location is good if you want to shop - the next block is the famous Silk Market.
Sunworld Hotel Wangfujing Good 7.7 Friendly staff and speak english well and very helpful in our plan tour, specially Mr. Mac Ma..
Legendale Hotel Beijing Excellent 8.8 In great location for walking to some near by sites and shopping malls. The building, being distinctly different architecturally to the others around it, made it easier to find again when walking!!
The Peninsula Beijing Very good 8.5 good location, relatively low room rate, "honest 5 stars", great service, very good staff, nice pool.
Ritan International Hotel Pleasant 6.9 location, standard, price, staff
