HAND PICKED BEIJING ACCOMMODATION

Beijing is a vast city so a good hotel location is essential to get the best of your experience here. Our hotel of choice is the Jade Garden Hotel located a stones throw from the east gate of the Forbidden City. A peg higher is the Kapok Hotel almost next door and a good Boutique style option. At the top of the range is the Hilton Wangfujing. However, Beijing also offers more traditional Chinese style hotels based around courtyard sin the ancient residential Hutongs. Of these our top choice is the Double Happiness Courtyard Hotel.
