Comments and Questions

We are a group of 10 senior citizens staying at Howard Johnson Paragon Hotel near the Beijing railway station. Do these airport shuttle bus provide luggage space for passengers as each of us have a medium size trolley luggage and wondering whether it is convenient or not?

Kindly advise urgently

Hi, it is allowed to take along your luggage onto the shuttle bus. If the size is a little large, the bus has luggage compartment beneath. Just take it easy!

Im arriving at Beijing Int. airport at 0.20 am. Going to Novotel Xinqiao which transport is convenience and economical. Pls advice.

It is suggested to take airport shuttle bus line 2 (Night Line) and get off at International Hotel station. Then your hotel is around 1.6km away. Just take a taxi to reach in minutes.

Hi, I have a flight from Nanyuan airport at 20.05 but the last scheduled airport bus from Xidan is stated as 15.00. It also says 'The departure times of the airport buses from/to Nanyuan Airport are adjusted according to the times of the scheduled flights of the day.' but how can I find out the times of the buses for my flight? Thanks

You are right with the info of the last bus to the airport from Xidan, 15:00. The sentence you quoted means that the frquency of the buses (06:10 - 15:00) is adjusted according to the flights' schedule, so no bus suits your flight timing.

I am travelling by train to Beijing and arrive 6pm. My flight is at 9;30pm same day. I am really worried about making the flight. Do you know the time frames for bus, train or taxi to terminal 2 Beijing airport? I am scared traffic might delay taxi or bus, but rain may also be peak and I have a large bag, hope you can advise.
Thanks Helen.

To be honest, you don't have enough to catch your flight. You will meet the rush hours and there will be traffic jam. Considering all, I would suggest you change another flight departing later.

Hi, coming from the Capital Airport, we plan to ride Airport Shuttle Bus #2 and go down at Beijing Int'l hotel. From here, what city bus should we ride to reach Nanheyan Street, Dongcheng District. Thanks

Bus no. 52 or 120 would help. Walk from the International Hotel to Beijng Zhankoudong bus stop to take either of the buses and get off at Tiananmen East. Then walk east to Nanheyan Street.

It takes 25-30min to the airport and the cab fare is around CNY90.

From the airport to the hotel, you can take shuttle bus line 2 to Yonghegong Lama Temple. Then use local subway line 5 to get off at Dengshikou. Get out from exit C and you can walk there in 650 meters.

To catch a plane that early, the best and the only way shall be taking a taxi.

you mean your hotel in Beijing city?
it is possible for you to wait at the airport.
you can take the subway airport express line, and the first subway leaves the airport at 06:21 for terminal building 3 and 06:35 from T2.

salina ishak ( Malaysia ) :11/24/2013 7:43:46 PM

tq wendy. my hotel at shizi hutong. but im planning to drop by to xidan for winter cloth shopping. so I want to wait at Beijing airport before going by bus or train to xidan in the morning.

Wendy :11/25/2013 5:53:46 PM

if you plan for winter cloth shopping in Xidan, i suggest that you stay longer in the airport, as most shops and markets won't open until 09:00.
airport bus line 2 runs to Xidan directly, so you may consider take the bus rather than subway.

Hi, I will be arriving in Beijing on 2/12/2013 at 1:50 am. please advise me the best mode of transport to go to my hotel Green tea inn Beijing chaishikou express hotel shizi hutong, xicheng, financial street. How mush is the fare,tq

there are airport shuttle buses as long as there is flight arriving at the airport.
so you can take the airport shuttle bus nightline to Xidan, and then take a taxi to the hotel. the bus fare is CNY16 per person and the taxi fare is about CNY20.

Hi. I am arriving in beijing airport. going to jin jiang inn beijing zoo branch in Xicheng District. I have 2 pieces of luggage. What is the cheapest way to go to the hotel? Will there be a bus that will stop near my hotel? thanks

the cheapest way is to take airport shuttle bus line 2 (CNY16) and get off at Xizhimen QiaoNan stop. however, there is still over 1 km to walk to your hotel, but it is also a good opportunity to get close to the local community. from the bus stop, you walk back (northward) for about 160 meters, and turn left onto the Xizhimenwai South Road. head westward for another 200 meters and turn right at the second turning. then walk north again for only 80 meters, and turn left at the first turning. continue to walk west and at the end of the lane turn right. head northward until you reach the main street of Xizhimen Wai Street. There walk across the overpass and turn left to move westward. when you see the Beijing Exhibition Hall, turn right onto the road east of it and continue to walk for about 150 meters, you will find the hotel.
Another way is to take subway airport express line and then change to line 2 at Dongzhimen, and then line 4 at Xizhimen.
alight at Beijing Zoo (Dong Wu Yuan) station and leave from Exit C. walk eastward along the road and turn left at the Beijing Exhibition hall, and then head north for anothter 200 meters, you will the hotel. the walking distance is only 600 meters, but the fare is CNY 27 per person. also, it will be inconvenience for you to make transfer at subway stations with your two suitcases.
the most conveniet way is take a taxi, but costs CNY 100.
