Hotel or Serviced Apartment?

by OneNightInBangkok

I will be staying in Beijing for 8 days and I am undecided if I should stay in a hotel or book a serviced apartment. I am currently looking at the following properties and I would appreciate your inputs.

Somerset Grand Fortune Garden in 46 Liang Ma Qiao Road Chao Yang District
Luxury Serviced Residence in 17 Jian Hua Nan Road, Jian Guo Men Wai Street Chao Yang District
Grand Mercure Xidan in 6 Xuanwumen Nei Avenue Xicheng District

I can get a club level room at the Grand Mercure so breakfast up to cocktails will come with the room. Internet access is complimentary but laundry will be for an extra fee. Location-wise, I think this property is very central?

Somerset looks so good but I am not very sure about its location. It has a kitchen with washer and dryer in the room but everything else like breakfast and internet would come for a fee.

Luxury Serviced Residence would be the most inexpensive of the three but same thing as Somerset, breakfast and internet will be charged separately.

Help please?

LiangMaQiao at Chaoyang District is also very convenient, with subway line 10 and ChaoYang Park Olympic beach volleyball venue, this shouldn't be what you are worrying about.

Besides, it is the central diplomatic region of Beijing, nearly each foreign country that has established a diplomatic relation with China has set up an embassy there. I like walking around in this neighborhood, seeing those national flags & guards in front of the fencing wall is interesting, and it does improve my world geography.

Xuanwumen Nei Avenue Xicheng District is near the shopping area such as XiDan, WangFuJing and the old city center, if you are doing the regular tourist staff, this place is a good choice, too.

Thank you. How far is Somerset from the nearest subway station?

If you are by yourself or have no young children traveling with you then there is no need to go to a service apartemnt for a 7-8 night stay. I like service apartments if my family travel with me or if I have to stay a few weeks (or months), as it gives me more room and places to cook and do the laundry (kind of like a timeshare units) and extra work space, otherwsie of you can get club level deals with free breakfast and coaktails do enjoy the luxuary, why worry about making your own breakfast if you can get it free?

Travel Tips for Beijing

Tian An...

by SirRichard

Tian An Men square has got several highlights: south of the Palace Museum and north of Tiananmen Square is the Ming Dynasty rostrum of Tiananmen (gate of Heavenly Peace ). From this vantage point you can scan the golden roofs of the place and the square which is called 'the heart of China'.

Creepy-crawlies on sticks!

by Willettsworld

The Wangfujing Night Market has a selection of exotic Street food on the Snack Street. Deep fried insects, scorpions, and sea creatures can be found, along with other animals and animal parts not ordinarily consumed as food in the west. Because of this, the stalls are a bit of a novelty for both us westerners and, also, for Chinese. You'll find a great number of people pulling horrible faces at what’s on offer plus those daring to try one of the sticks that contains an insect (which can be still moving!). All of this means that it's also a big draw for having your photo taken with people handing insect sticks near their mouths!

Stream pathway/park

by schwein

On the south side of the Forbidden City lies a nice stream pathway. It is hard to notice if you aren't looking for it, as it is hidden between the City wall, with another identical wall blocking access from the sidewalk/street.

This is the same stream that you cross over to get into the Forbidden City.

To access the pathway:
From the Tiananmen gate Forbidden City entrance, head east about 100m. You will see doorways for a public toilet set back against the wall. The park's access door is in the wall, beside the bathroom doors, and looks like it's part of the bathroom complex. It comes out in the next block over, where the main road crosses it, and continues on.

A nice walk, much better than walking along beside the traffic and crowds on the sidewalk.
Maybe people didn't enter the doorway because they thought the path was part of the bathroom area?

We used the pathway quite a few times, just walking around. It never had more than a handful of people in it, no matter what time it was and how crowded the sidewalks were.

Shopping street that have almost everything

by MickeH about Wangfujing Street

Wangfujing Dajie is a big street lined with lots and lots of shopping.
You can find almost anything here, from arts and crafts to the latest world fashion.

The priced are higher than you might find elswhere but there are still bargains to be had.
And even if you aren't shopping for anything in particular the street offers plenty of recreation and you can walk around feeling the pulse of the street. Of get something to eat and sit down planning your next move.

Some will find this street to modern and western for their taste but who said you can't have one without the other. Take one day walking around the malls and small stores here and go on to the silk or pearl markets the next. In Wangfujing Dajie the main commodity is clothes, but you can find most things you are shopping for along the street. From cheap souveniers to Rolexes. Yes, the genuine thing. To the genuine price... Expect to spend more than you might elsewhere in Beijing, but you can still find bargains.

Hire a bike

by Niekie

In Beijing traffic, there is always a choice. You can be stuck in a cab, going nowhere, because incapable drivers, trying to get ahead in busy traffic, have blocked up some intersection, leaving an entire block trapped in a huge gridlock. Alternatively, you could be peddling your way through the most narrow hutongs, the wind in your hair, swerving around any obstacles that you might come across, free as a bird. The choice is yours.

Alright, being a Dutchie, I may have a slight predisposition to riding a bike, but I genuinely think this is the most enjoyable mode of transportation inside the center of Beijing. If you never ride a bike in your normal everyday life, just stick to the hutongs. A bicycle will give you the freedom to stop where and whenever you want and allows you to cover larger distances than on foot.

Renting a bicycle for a day should cost you around 20 to 50 RMB, depending on the quality of the bike. Ask your hotel for directions to the nearest rental place.
