Clean, cheap, nice location, accessible
Depends on how much you want to pay but I have stayed at the Holiday Express Minzuyuan which is not far from Beitucheng subway station and also not far from the Olympic site. You can easily get to other places in Beijing via the subway which is very cheap and accessible, about 4 yuan per trip.
I have also stayed at the Harmony Hotel and the Novotel SanYuanQiao. Both were good. But Beijing has many cheap good hotels. Look around the Wangfujing area too as it's close to Tiananmen Sq and the Forbidden City. Hope this helps. almost 6 years ago
Try the Hotel New Otani Chang Fu Gong. This hotel is affordable and clean. It is near to Wangfujing shopping center, the Imperial Palace and the central business district. It also has a great pool. http://search.costeffectivetravel.com/Hotel/Hotel_New_Otani_Chang_Fu_Gong.htm almost 6 years agoAnswered by Paul via Travellr.com
I stayed at the Red Lantern House (http://www.redlanternhouse.com/home.htm). 70RMB in a 4 bed dorm, shared bathroom which was clean and equipped. Beautiful courtyard, great coffee, English-speaking staff, fantastic location between two metro stations (5 mins walk), awesome lane way location with lots of eateries. almost 6 years ago
