Beijing is China's capital city and was host to the 2008 Olympic Games which means there's an abundance of budget accommodation available to the traveller. Beijing also has a modern transport system that can easily take you from your hotel to any of the cities districts including many popular tourist attractions.
Dongcheng is the heart of Beijing's main tourist district with the Forbidden city and Tienanmen Square within walking distance to the budget accommodation area. Similarly Xuanwu is a newly renovated area where savvy budget travellers can find a bargain. While Chongwen and Chaoyang to the south are close to embassies, parks, shopping centres and monuments.
Outside of Beijing's inner city and away from popular tourist sights Chaoyang appeals to shoppers and those looking for a glimpse of the Olympic Games. A visit to the National Stadium or the "Bird's Nest" is also a must see when in this part of Beijing. Surrounding this area are architectural sights such as CCTV building, Beijing's tallest building the World Trade Tower III and a massive collection of shopping centres. This area is also host to many embassies making it a good location for those needing travel essential visas.
This district is without doubt the most popular area for tourists and is also conveniently located in the very heart of Beijing. World famous sights such as the Forbidden City, Tienanmen Square, The Chinese National Museum along with a host of theatres and museums are all within walking distance of each other. Ideally suited to the budget traveller the Dongcheng area also has a host of cheap restaurants, food stalls and night markets. Beijing Central Station is located in this district making it ideal for further trips around this big capital city or further out to sights such as The Great Wall of China.
In Chongwen budget accommodation can be limited, however the prices in the area might just be enticing enough to take that chance. The district is just south of the central Dongcheng area and famous for its small side streets north of Hong Qiao Market. Filled with local stores, cafés and restaurants it can be a rewarding experience and a great place to eat cheaply. For families Beijing Amusement Park is located here but perhaps more interestingly walks to the Ming Dynasty City Wall Site Park and the huge Temple of Heaven make this an appealing area to stay.
Looking for the budget backpackers' accommodation area or cheapest accommodation in Beijing? Then Xuanwu's hotels & hostels will surely fit the bill. While it doesn't have any tourist sights in its location per se, it is still within reasonable walking distance to Tienanmen square and the Forbidden City. The area is more popularly known for its old pre-WWII stores and theatres. A working class area, Xuanwu is filled with the cheapest accommodation in Beijing.

bridgette. I have travelled a lot around the world, never have I encountered an establishment with such warmth and which gives one a place of belonging sometimes better than one's own homeground. The service by the hosts was absolutely excellent and it far surpassed my expectations! I now call the Great Wall Courtyard Hostel in Badaling my second home!!! Regards, Bridgette Gasa, South Africa

Gartt Great place to stay, smack in the middle of Beijing. Within walking distance of a number of sites including the Forbidden City and with easy access to the Subway. Friendly and helpful staff, rooms were ok and decent value considering the central location. A good, if limited range of food available. I would definately recommend this place to friends.

Judith Mol Red lantern House staff are very friendly and helpful. Shared bathroom facilities are cleaned throughout the day. Good location, close to but outside of 'trendy' hutong area, but within walking distance of many tourist attractions. Definitely glad I choose to stay here.
