Beijings only boutique hotel
This hotel is great. Its very friendly, has a resident tailor, 1/2 hour walk to the centre of town or 5 mins walk to a bus stop and the bus fare is 1RMB.
The rooms are largish, clean, free adsl internet in rooms (lan cord provided.)
There is a convenience store next door to get that cheap beer and the hotel provides a cafe area serving pizza etc.
It is also only 5 mins walk to the temple of heaven.
The breakfast is adequate, and I did have the most wonderful lemon chicken here the only night I had dinner here.
Across the road from The Temple Of Heaven
The R J brown is a boutique style hotel that is close to a lot of the major attractions in Beijing.
The rooms were a good size, there was internet access, a bar and restaurant and the staff were more than friendly.

I recently stayed at the RJ Brown Hotel in the Tian Qiao area of Beijing (just west of the Temple of Heaven). It was fairly inexpensive, clean, FRIENDLY & HELPFUL staff (ask for Joe), had great breakfasts, and reasonable internet access. They have their own website (rj-brown-hotel.com I think?) and email them for rates. 1 bus from that area took me to the Forbidden City and subway routes. Getting to the airport might be tricky, however. I took an airport shuttle (16RMB) and it got me nowhere near the hotel--but the cab I took after I jumped off the shuttle only cost my 30RMB, so it's pretty cheap. They also have laundry services, free bottled water, a nice lounge, etc.
Unique Quality: Internet (10RMB for 1/2 hr), free bottled water, breakfast & dinner available, can arrange tours, laundry services, helpful ENGLISH speaking staff. Ask for Joe!
Directions: Tian Qiao area (Xinlong & TianTan crossstreets area)

More about Rj Brown Hotel
I am staying at the RJ Brown Hotel during my trip to China. The proprietor suggested I take an 'autobus' (what's that??? where do I catch it??) from the airport to the Beijing Train Station, then grab a taxi to the hotel. According to the map, it doesn't look to be too far from the RJ Brown Hotel. What should I expect to pay for a taxi, or is it walkable if I am female, 39, and have 1 pullman & a backpack? I'll hit town around 6pm. Or should I simply take a taxi from the airport directly and pay more?
Beijing airport transfer
Most likely a reference to Beijing Airport's shuttle bus service, which only costs around 16 RMB. It is a good idea to take the airport bus downtown first and then transfer to a taxi. The taxi should not be more than 20 RMB from the train station.

Duly noted. Thanks!
