Home : Beijing Travel Tips:


The accommodation in Beijing offers both comfort and convenience, ranging from star-rated luxury hotels to budget hotels and Youth Hostels.

Should you wish to make your trip more economical, then the budget hotels and youth hostels are a pretty good choice.

 Budget Hotel

In Beijing, budget hotels, a new kind of hotel, are popular with people from home and abroad. These hotels focus on having relatively small restaurants, parking lots and facilities but the guest rooms are rarely inferior to those of star-rated hotels. By dispensing with the recreational facilities that are not essential to your stay, hotels of this kind are quite economical with prices ranging from CNY100 to CNY200. If budget hotels were to have star classifications then they can be equated to one and two-star hotels while some will even match three-star hotels.

Comments and Questions

From what I read, it seems that if you stay in a hostel, chances are it won't provide you with a bath towel. Is this true? If yes, would the hostel sell towel? How much will it cost per piece? Thank you.

there are many apartment hotel in the residence area near Wangjing Road, all of them have kitchen and bathrooms.
the approximate cost is around CNY 150 per day, there should be a discount if you rent the apartment for 1 month.
long-sleeves t-shirt and light coat would be good. it is neither hot nor cold.
