    We debated on staying at either this hotel or the North Garden Hotel (closer to the subway) but we couldn't find much written on the North Garden and chose the Taiwan hotel because of its good reviews and was not disappointed. The rooms were clean, the staff pleasant, the air-conditioning adequate, although it had a slightly smokey smell to the rooms (there are no non-smoking rooms). The hotel was close to the Wangfujing tourist area where there are shopping and many restaurants to choose from. Wanfujing is a interesting, but busy place to walk around and during the summer, the shops open til 10 pm.. Just across the street, walking in the direction of Wanfujing street, is a clean fast food restaurant chain, where we enjoyed a northern style breakfast where you can order soy bean milk+ egg +onion pancakes for 7 RMB or a tray of dumplings for 8 RMB, just point to the pictures We were also allowed an early check-in at 9 am, and we paid half a room's rate for late check out at 7 pm. We booked this hotel for $65 /night for a standard double room from www.asiatravel.com. If you want to go to the Silk Market, you can walk 15-20 minutes to the subway, pay 3 RMB, and go 3 stops and get off at Yong An Li. The Silk Market is right off the subway stop, you don't have to go out to the street. To get to the Xi Dan shopping area, go the opposite direction and get off the Xi Dan stop. The Forbidden City actually took us 25 minutes to walk to the entrance in the front and was well worth it. We booked a full-day tour to the Great Wall and Ming Tombs from www.hotelguidechina.com for $20/person. The only complaint we have is beware of allowing the bell hops to take your luggage and call a taxi for you upon check-out because the taxi's are usually dishonest.. We paid 75 RMB from the airport to the hotel, but 190 RMB in the opposite direction, from the hotel to the airport. Instead, get your own taxi on the street and make sure they use the meter and ask for a full receipt.

    Directions: Near Wanfujing, 25 minutes to Forbidden City, 20 minutes to subway

    Good Location

    by

    The location is excellent - it's right on Wangfujing street, a major shopping area, and a nice 15-20 minute walk to Tianemen Square. Across the street is a very upscale restaurant, Quan Jia Fu. Taxis are easy to catch in front of the hotel, a convenience store is right next door, and a Bank of China ATM is right down the street.

    Most of the front desk clerks speak passable English. The maid staff spoke no English at all, except "clean room?"

    If you don't bring along your own laptop: Internet access is available a few blocks away for only 3RMB per hour. Internet access is also available at the hotel's business center, but it's 6RMB per MINUTE and is ridiculously slow.

    Upon arrival at the Taiwan Hotel, we realized that the heating system in our room didn't work. We called the front desk, who sent up people to check it out. Within a half hour, we were upgraded to a better room at no cost. Excellent service.

    Unique Quality: All rooms have internet access. Call the front desk for the cord you need to plug into your laptop. Cost is about $6 USD for 24 hours, and the connection speed is excellent.

    Currency exchange is available at the front desk. The hotel has a few different restaurants; we ate only at the buffet next to the lobby. The buffet is about $7 USD and is very good, with a mixture of American and Chinese dishes.

    We booked this hotel at sinohotel and had no problems whatsoever checking in. We had a twin-room rate of $53 USD per night at off-season rates.

    You are not allowed to bring visitors to your room after 11pm. Just an FYI.

    Directions: Print out the Chinese characters for the hotel at sinohotel, hand it to your cab driver at the airport. They ALL know where this hotel is.

    Good value in central location

    by

    For the price this was a surprisingly decent hotel (approx £30 per room per night). Large twin room, with TV and fridge and reasonable sized clean bathroom. Furnishings old but clean. Room smelt of smoke (although we had asked for a non-smoking room), but nothing an air freshener didn’t sort out. Nice lobby area and efficient English-speaking reception staff. It also has a couple of restaurants and beauty centre. We didn’t eat in although the menu's looked reasonable. We used its business centre for internet access and that was cheap. Location is central, just off Wangfujing shopping street and within 15 mins walk to Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City. Our room at the front overlooked a main road that got busy early, but wasn’t too noisy. Seemed a very popular hotel and residents were a mix of Asian and European. For the price and location would recommend and would use again. One warning: avoid the pushy drivers in the expensive taxis that park outside the hotel. We booked our room at a discount rate through www.sinohotelguide.com.

    Directions: 1 minute from Wangfujing shopping street and within walking distance of Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City.

    One to avoid

    by

    I haven't stayed here, but the description I got was a rundown, musty smelling hotel that is way overpriced. A frequent stop on adoption travel, my friends who were unfortunate enough to be put up here all said to avoid it all costs.
