Beijing Hotels
“Hostels are often staffed by young Chinese with a good command of English. Easing the ‘lost in translation’ feeling, they will gladly direct you to the best eateries and nightlife in town.”
Are you planning a trip to the Chinese capital, but don’t know where to look for a cheap hotel? Are you puzzled by the city maps full of Chinese symbols? Beijing is confusing, but when it comes to budget accommodations, you’ll be spoilt for choice. There are cheap and cheerful youth hostels, such as the centrally located Leo and Happy Dragon Hostel with its friendly English-speaking staff. Plus, atmospheric courtyard homes like Kelly’s Courtyard make Beijing one of the best places in Asia to find affordable accommodations.
