Beware! To find this hotel do NOT use Google Maps but look for the address given by Agoda. Google Maps locates this hotel in a parallel street. I have informed the hotel staff of this but they seemed unable or unwilling to contact Google to correct the mislocation of their hotel. Otherwise this is a very fine, comfortable and friendly hotel. I stayed here for two non-consecutive nights (one night out of town hiking on the Great Wall).

Great traditional chinese style hotel near Forbidd
The hotel is in the Hutong traditional Chinese style homes and is only 10 minutes to the forbidden city and Tianmen subway. Also very close to Wanfuling shopping area. The staff was nice and helpful with limited english. We had a large room with 3 beds for a family of 4 (2 teenage boys) for about $150 US per night include good western/chinese breakfast Clean room, mattress & pillow. The bathroom was decent. The shower area had molds but good hot & cold water. The hotel has no sign . It is in the alley, very hard to find and is across from a famous Beijing Roast Duck Restaurant that you have to wait for almost 2 hrs to get in. Hence, get a number and check back with them later. The Forbidden City was crowded. Bring passport to purchase ticket. Don't buy the ticket at the first entrance. This ticket just allow you to see the tower at the front entrance not the Forbidden City. If you see the tower, you have to check in any bags that are greater than a 5x4 square inch size and be sure to pick up your bags when you exit the tower before entering the Forbidden City since it is a one way entrance. They won't let you to come back out unless you show them your tower/bag check tickets and explained in mandarin that you need to return there. The Forbidden City is amazing. Make sure to see the gallery on both sides if you have time. Plan to spend about 3 hrs there. Lots of walking and steps. Other areas to see include: Summer Palace, Zoo (very cheap only 19 RMB/ticket ~$3.00). Go to Simatai Great Wall over the other tourist areas if you can. Great view with a traditional chinese Wtown below. Check out the Red Theater Kungfu show and take express airport subway to the airport- much faster and cheaper than by car/taxi to avoid the terrible Beijing traffic & congestion. It is our 1st time traveling on our own to 7 cities in China and had a great time without joining any tour group. The subway and speed train is your best mode of transportation in large city like Shang

awesome traditional court yard converted hotel.
Right next to forbidden city and one of the few well preserved court yard that will bring you back to the old times. Especially good for large family with multiple beds. Other than narrow street alley and lack of a/c in some common area, we loved place.

Palace Hotel is a wonderful place to stay
Palace Hotel was the best hotel we could have chosen for our trip to Beijing. It is a 5 to 10 minute walk to the Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, Snack Street and the shopping street. There is a great Peking Duck restaurant right at the end of the alley. One block up are all sorts of restaurants, stores and fun things to do. The staff is wonderful! They do not speak much English and I only knew a little Chinese, but we had no problem understanding each other as they use a very cool app to translate. We got to the hotel around 10pm and let them know we were hungry. We asked where to go to grab something to eat. They opened the kitchen and made noodles for us. The noodles were delicious. The Hotel is very charming. It is a block down an alley. You ring the bell to get in. The main courtyard is beautiful. There are plants and flowers everywhere. There are carvings and painting all over. Our room was huge! There were two big king sized beds. We were on the third floor. I would recommend this hotel for anyone wanting an authentic stay in a small hotel. That is in a great area.

很有京味的四合院
地理和价格都很适中,唯一不满的就是设施没有4星级标准,但是不影响住宿,房间清洁。 很适合有小朋友的家庭,里面有个小院,都是用玻璃包起来,不怕下雨和担心空气质量,小朋友玩的不亦乐乎,而且还可以在院子里休息,很休闲,也很适合有老人的家庭。 离故宫很近,去后海和天坛坐就近的公交车就可,下次去北京的话还住他家!

現代版四合院
改良後的四合院。院子封了頂,將地下室的部分都變成了客房和游泳池,還配有電梯呢! 不過,我覺得少了點四合院的原汁原味。

酒店位置很好,出行也比较方便,离天安门广场不远。环境比较清净,居家。早饭选择种类少了点,要是能有点粥就更好了。值得推荐
