Accomodation in Beijing
« on: June 06, 2007, 10:14:39 AM »
What are some cheap, good hotels/hostels in Beijing?
I'm looking for lower end of the price range but don't want to share a bathroom. The links page has been useful but now I want some first-hand opinions.

So far I'm considering these three:
New Dragon Youth Hostel, Beijing Drum Tower Youth Hostel or Red Lantern House. Has anybody  stayed at one of these places and what did they think of it? Or has anybody got their own personal favourite?

What price is 'cheap'??  How much do you want to pay?
Be kind to dragons for thou are crunchy when roasted and taste good with brie.

yep.. all depends on price.

There are a number of hotels I've used in Beijing before that cost under 200RMB for a decent twin room. Hostels with private bath, on the other hand, are hard to come by. I used to stay at the Poachers where the private room was 180 rMB/night but the bathroom was shared. Same think for the international hostel across form Beijing Zhan.
the Super8 hotel chain is a good deal usually...

go to elong.net and run a search for the dates with room price under 200RMB.. you'd be surprised at the number of results.

I've personally stayed at the super 8 near sanlitun as well as the Eastern inn quite a few times before moving into the city.

alors régressons fatalement, eternellement. Des débutants, avec la peur comme exutoire à l'ignorance et Alzheimer en prof d'histoire de nos enfances!

Around 200RMB per night.
