Inexpencive Stay in the Heart of Beijing
Posted Nov 27, 2014
Yes this hotel is really cheap. It's very hard to find if you are first time on your own. We took a cab from Dongsishitiao for 100RMB (fifteen minutes bargaining with taxi drivers from 200RMB) None from the taxi stand wanted to take us using meter. Eventually young driver, said, okey, let's go on my taxi using meter. When we loaded our suitcases, and sat into the cab, he asked for 100RMB flat without using the meter. We had two little and tired children with us, frustrated I agreed. Although realised lately that its only 10RMB this way cost. Location is unbeatable, close to subway, in the heart of Beijing. Rooms are dump during the cold nights in November. Although very quiet during the night. Hotel is suitable for backpackers, and on the budget clients.I checked rooms in hotel acros the street, they are smaler but air is drier and warmer,price is a bit higher. We didn't move out. I think it was good experience for children. Later we stayed in Pingyao Cheng Jia hotel, and it was really different experience. This hotel is also Hutong Style, but nicely decorated in traditional chinese style, with heated floors, large kang bed, red light in bathroom, styled sink, hot water drinking faucet, beautiful yard. It was totally different experience.
