Where to Stay in Beijing?
An enormous and ever-changing city, Beijing is easy to divide into distinct districts, each with its own attractions, character and accommodations. Dongcheng, in the city center, is home to many of the city's traditional sights, such as the Forbidden City and Tianamen Square, plus many well-preserved hutongs, Beijing's traditional residential areas, as well as Wangfujing Dajie, the city's most famous shopping street. Chaoyang is Beijing's entertainment and dining center, where many of the city's best clubs and restaurants have been opening in the last few years. Xicheng, in the north, is where many innovative buildings and art galleries can be found. For traditional Chinese culture, the Xicheng district is home to many old shops, many selling antiques. Another popular area is Chongwen, home the Temple of Heaven and the preserved remains of Beijing's original city walls.
Beijing Accommodation Options
Beijing may be unusual among major world cities for having too many hotel and accommodation choices. Most older hotels in Beijing, while inexpensive, are often outdated and unimpressive. The Beijing hotel boom of the last decade means, though, that there are many newer hotels throughout the city, particularly in the Dongcheng, Xicheng, and north Chaoyang districts. Most are clean and comfortable, although they often lack any distinctively Chinese elements. If authenticity is what you are interested in, try a courtyard hotel in one of Beijing's hutong neighbourhoods.
Over 400 hotels in Beijing have restaurants and business centers. Approximately 300 hotels provide room service and contain fitness centres. Beijing’s close to 400 hostels, guesthouses, inns, and bed and breakfasts, many of which are also in the Fengtai district, have impressively low rates, and many are geared toward the youth market. The Mutianyu Great Wall affords travellers an array of luxurious vacation rentals.
