Mid-range Hotels

In Beijing’s mid-range hotels credit cards are often not accepted and air-conditioning is not always standard. Check when booking

  1. Fang Yuan Hotel

    Two blocks north of the famed Night Market, the location is hard to beat. It’s a fairly modest place but looking quite spruce after a 2005 refit. Staff are well used to dealing with foreigners and there’s a travel advisory service, booking center, bicycle rental, and internet.

  2. Hade Men Hotel

    Among the older hotels in Beijing, but renovated to a standard above other Chinese-run options in this range. Rooms are comfortable, if a bit gaudy, with nice views from the upper floors. It’s round the corner from the railway station.

  3. Red Hotel

    Formerly the Red House Hotel, this establishment has been under new management since 2008. Its clean, cheerful rooms are good value for money. There’s a popular football bar on the premises, and it’s a short walk to more bars in the Sanlitun district.

  4. Beijing Bullion Kaiyue Hotel

    Excellent, modern three-star on a narrow lane just a few minutes’ walk from Wangfujing. All rooms have laptop portals, and satellite TV, and represent good value for money.

    • 31 Ganyu Hutong, off Dong Si Nan Dajie

    • 8511 0388

    • Subway: Deng Shi Kou

  5. City Hotel Beijing

    Sound mid-range option within walking distance of Sanlitun’s bars, restaurants, and shops. Rooms are clean and comfortable, if a little dated. Staff speak some English.

  6. Comfort Inn & Suites

    Rooms are tastefully decorated, with desks, comfortable sofas, and plush new duvets. It caters more for business people on lengthy stays, so service can be found wanting.

  7. Motel 268

    Because of its prime location, this branch of China’s economy hotel chain Motel 168 has been branded Motel 268. The 156-room property offers four categories of rooms, all with Internet access, air conditioning, and TV. Make sure your room has a window.

  8. Huafeng Hotel

    The Huafeng may be bland, but it offers good value for money in the pleasant Legation Quarter, and is walking distance from central Tian’an Men Square and Wangfujing Street.

  9. Scitech Hotel

    A good-value option for both shoppers and hedonists, the four-star Scitech abuts a large department store and popular nightclub Banana. Standard rooms are a bit on the small side but are otherwise comfortable.

  10. Qian Men Jianguo Hotel

    The hotel itself isn’t much to look at, but rooms are decent. The Li Yuan Theater, with nightly shows of Beijing Opera, is on the hotel grounds. The Temple of Heaven is a short walk away.
