Beijing accommodation

It is unlikely that some of the visitors of Beijing will have troubles finding adequate housing because there is a great choice in all price ranks. Accommodation prices in Beijing are not high and it is possible to find a good bargain. You can bargain in the most of the hostels, and even in the some mid-range hotels. The central districts, Dongcheng and Xicheng, or nearby Chaoyang District are best to visit when it comes to searching for the accommodation. They are suitable because of the attractions which are relatively near, the city center which is also around, and because they contain the largest number of hotels and hostels.

One of the most attractive locations for accommodation is the hutong area around Nanluogu Xiang Hutong, north of the Forbidden City. It’s an old part of the city where you can find interesting hutongs, where the architecture of most buildings is traditional, with many restaurants and bars, being one of the centers of nightlife in Beijing. This is the place where you can go back to ancient history for just a moment, and at the same time enjoy the night life and modern restaurants. In this part of the city, the hotels in traditional style can be found, and accommodation is usually not expensive.

Dashilar (or Dazhalan; 大栅栏) area and Qianmen Street, south of Tiananmen Square in Xicheng District, is one more area with a wide range of hostels and budget hotels. This is also the old city and the Qianmen Street with over 500 years of tradition, is one of the oldest commercial streets. Wangfujing, the Central Business District (CBD) and Financial Street are also places to visit, for those who want to enjoy the luxury at still lower prices compared to Western cities. These are the business districts of the city, with big fancy shopping malls, government buildings, modern buildings, but comparing with them even hotels do not fall behind in luxury.

A lot of hotels offers a discount for early booking. The prices shown here are valid for standard rooms, but many hotels also offer more luxurious and more expensive options. These prices are for high season, while the low season offers lower prices, which can become higher during the public holidays.
