Questions & Answers

I will be arriving earlier/later than the stated check-in time. Can I still check in?

I will be arriving earlier/later than the stated check-in time. Can I still check in?

Usually this is not a problem; you can arrange for an after-hours check-in with most hotels. However, you should always confirm with the hotel. You can use the "Special Requests" box in the booking process to inform them of your estimated arrival time in writing. It's important to remember that the property can't always accommodate these requests. It's always best to check with the property directly and in advance to avoid confusion. You can contact the hotel directly by calling them, the local telephone number you can get from Nehow's Local Guide after you finish the booking.

I want to check out after the stated check-out time. What should I do?

I want to check out after the stated check-out time. What should I do?

A late check-out can only be arranged with the hotel and usually depends on availability at the time of your stay. You can ask about the possibility at the front desk upon arrival.

  • Great location - everything else, eh.
    Laura A
    Mesa, Arizona | Oct 15, 2015 | Trip type: Couples

    I selected this hotel because of its proximity to the Forbidden City - I did not want to mess around with the public transportation system in Beijing, and had heard that Westerners have a hard time getting picked up in taxis (a fact that was proven by the dozen or so taxis that stopped, saw we were Westerners, and drove away laughing or grimacing).
    From a location standpoint, you can't beat it if you purpose is to visit the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square, as it was ours. It was a quick ten minute walk, and we were in the heart of the Square. The rest of our trip was set aside for the Great Wall - the hotel offers tours, but we had already hired a private driver, so I can't comment on those except to say that they appear to be available.
    The Front Desk staff speak very little English. There is one woman who seems to have the best mastery of English who we happened to work with the first day, but if she was not around, it was very difficult to communicate. I asked for their assistance in ordering pizza delivery for us one night and it turned into a rather big party, as it took five of us to get it figured out. Thankfully, it worked! :)
    The room itself is very dated, and the bathroom was very underwhelming. Very few towels, no soap, and the towels were so old they barely dried your skin anymore. The TV was set up on some sort of system where you could only select certain channels and certain movies, but when you clicked on a movie to watch it, a different movie came up.
    Also, our hotel room had nice big windows, but when you opened up the blinds - our room overlooked the balcony of someone's private home. And those folks loved sitting outside all day! So, we had to keep the blinds closed at all times.
    Overall, I would not recommend this hotel.

  • Just so so
    Shanghai | Oct 3, 2015 | Trip type: Family

    The hotel advantage is the location. Besides it is just very average standard hotel. We stayed with the family and rented three rooms by Ctrip. Rate was at 110 usd a night which is on the higher side and you would hope for better standard. Room carpets were dirty and stained. One of the rooms we stayed in has moldy and moth ball like odor. We were given rooms on 2nd floor facing a shack where empty beer bottles were stored. I would recommend to ask for higher floor rooms. We travelled during major Chinese national so we appreciated the location and the fact that we could easily walk to some of the key landmarks of Beijing down town.
    Forbidden city and Tiananmen Square are just around the corner. So is the subway stop. Wangfujing walking street is nearby and temple of heaven a bit longer walk away.
    To sum it up good location but substandard quality of the rooms. I would not stay there again if in Beijing.

  • fantastic location
    Josephine V
    Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand | Sep 15, 2015 | Trip type: Couples

    On check in I was ordered to sit by a very bossy lady, and I did! Check in was smooth but not happy to only have one room card..with the 2 of us...what a hassle! Room was in separate building on the 2nd floor. Carpet dirty as per normal Chinese hotel. Breakfast was adequate. Toiletries provided. Overall it was nothing special but the location was fantastic. Would recommend to any first time traveler to Beijing due to the location!

  • Good 3 star hotel in great location
    Suffolk | Aug 4, 2015 | Trip type: Solo travel

    Location is great -near forbidden city and wangfuing street for evening local food delicacies. Staff speak English and are helpful. Room in separate building but quiet and functional all in all a good choice for downtown beijing

  • Affordable accommodation in Beijing - Days Inn Hotel
    Tanja O
    Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa | Jul 27, 2015 | Trip type: Family

    We stayed in a basement room but it was clean and what more do you need? You should only sleep there for a couple of hours a day. The basement room was clean and not too small with a shower two beds a bar fridge and aircon. There is a ketel and a hairdryer. Every day the room is cleaned and you get fresh towels. What I liked about the Days in was that it is walking distance from Tiananmen Square the Forbidden City the China History Museum the Railway museum and a not to miss Qianmen Street. You can book tours at reception and the people at reception are very helpful and friendly although their Chinglish is not English. Make use of the local tours offered in the Hotel it is really more affordable than going through a tour group and you get more valuable information about the sites and sometime you even get to see more for less.
