    Western style hotel

    by

    The hotel was arranged by the travel committee in the choir and orchestra. Since I wasn't on the committee I cannot say what we actually paid for the hotel, but I guess it wasn't the cheapest. The staff in the lobby spoke a reasonably good English, as did the restaurant staff. Rooms were clean, ordinary hotel rooms with quite hard beds. Don't get me wrong the beds were comfortable enough for me, but if you absolutely want a soft bed you'll be in for a surprise. Most guests were westerners (I heard Scandinavian, English, French and German), and I guess it's popular with travelagencys. All rooms have working air-condition. Coming into the lobby was heavenly when the temperature outside was 37 deg C (100 deg F) in the shade. I wanted to make a tailcoat when I was in china. The assistant manager helped me find a good tailor that came to the hotel for measurements. The price for the tailcoat wasn't bad at all. I could also get a good suit at a lower cost than that others got on the other markets when bargaining for the lowest price.

    Unique Quality: The hotel is also the scene of one of Beijings famous Peking-operas (The Liyuan Theatre). It's also possible to get a massage.

    Directions: From the Temple of heaven Park walk east on the road that runs along the northside of the park as far as you can go. You'll have the hotell in the corner.

$60USD for a double. near a community center, so you don't have to go far to see tai-chi and other street activities. internet bar and mail services also close. there is also a famous Peking Opera & Acrobatics show in the lobby.

Watch the Opera Actors put on their Makeup

by joyful_sun

In Liyuan Theater, in Qianmen Hotel, if you arrive early at around 7PM, you can watch the Opera actors put on their make up before the show which starts at 7:30PM.

PEKING OPERA !

by LysDor

It was a strange experience with odd mimics, weird jumps and shouts interrupted by those bizarre chinese sounds - they call traditional theatre music!

This theatre tradition is over 200 years old and plays are based on folk tales, famous novels or fairy tales. They are in an awkward way a real pleasure to watch and in some places it is possible to have online english translation of the subtitles.

The fantastic silk costumes are works of art in themselves.

One of the best places for Peking Opera experience is Qianmen hotel which I visited.

Another idea is to go see chinese acrobatics - I assisted at the one at Poly Plaza.

Can't leave Beijing without watching the Opera

by joyful_sun

Beijing Opera is out of tune, wacky, fun, fast and entertaining. We watched it in the Liyuan Theater in the Qianmen Hotel. In the front part of the theater which was like the VIP area, the setting is a sit down-tea house style with chairs, tables, snacks and tea, while at the back part where we sat, it was pretty much movie-theater style seats. There is also a screen at the side of the stage that has English subtitles so you understand the plot. The opera has colorful costumes and makeup, donned with cartwheels, acrobatic kung fu style moves, it is both comedy and drama. Show starts at 7:30PM, if you come early you can watch the actors put on their make up. You'll either love it or hate it. Me, I simply loved it since its one show where I didnt fall asleep...(slept through Phantom of the Opera, Les Mis, etc)

1) What's a reasonable price to you?
2) When are you staying?

Hi, the Qianmen Jianguo Hotel is right down the road from Hong qiao markets.
It's maybe a 10 minute walk, but it's on the same street - you literally walk out the door and head left.
