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.
