    Your home away from home

    by

    It's not often that I choose to stay in a serviced apartment during a holiday. However, given the fact that my wife and I were staying for six nights in Beijing and really wanted to feel at home we decided to give this hotel a shot. (Note: My wife is living in Shanghai while I am in Tokyo so it was a reunion of sorts and so the need to feel at home!)

    The place was a splurge. Three bedrooms a huge living and dining room. Three bathrooms and showers. Full kitchen and washing machines. Cable TV. Free Internet access for our lap top etc. Actually bigger than our own flat at home!

    At 1200 Yuan a night it was a bit on the expensive side for 2 people, but for a family it's perfect. Your kids will love running around the HUGE apartment. It also seems to be BRAND NEW!

    This is not a standard hotel so there are some trade-offs. No room service, no concierge are the big minuses. However, the front desk staff and bell boys are all so helpful. For example, they went out of their way to bring up delivery service menus one night, actually researched movie times / places for us and helped us with tips in the city.

    Unique Quality: The place has a great gym and swimming pool in the same complex shared by residents. They provide a free pass so you can use all of th 5 star facilities. You need to bring or buy a swimming cap for 40 Yuan or $5 US.

    The location is in Chaoyang Area. It is farther than being in the Dong Cheng area where everything is happening. But, we hung out in various restaurants in this area so it was not bad at all. You will find out that Beijing is so spread out and the traffic awful. It can take 20-45 minutes to drive into town sometimes. But cabs are cheap.

    There is a supermarket about 5 mins away on foot which can stock up your fridge. Hotel can provide cooking utensils, glasses and plates upon your request.

    Directions: Chaoyang Area

No worries, we understood what you meant.

Here are a couple you might consider:
The Harmony Hotel, it is considered the top 3 star hotel in Beijing.
Here is a handy link, including location, within walking distance to Tianemen Square and Forbidden City:

also: Courtyard Marriot is a sure fire guaranteed hotel:

I stayed at the Nanjing Great Hotel near Wangfujing Street. This is a nice hotel which is excellently located and within your budget.

Nanjing Hotel, not Nanjing Great Hotel, I presume?

Re: re: help for hotels in beijing

by paulwf

No, it's definitely called the Nanjing Great Hotel.

Strange, because I've always known it as Nanjing Hotel! Maybe they wanted to upgrade. ;)
