Mid – range hotels in Beijing
With 400 four star hotels Beijing is well covered with decent accommodation. These are more affordable and still offer great comfort and quality service that meets international hotel standards. You can stay in these for as low as $40 in a distant end of the city or something like $80 in downtown.
This category is closely followed by nearly 500 three star hotels in Beijing. Lower price range is of course followed with worse quality of service, but you get what you pay for. These are anywhere between $25 and $40. It’s worth noting that three star hotels still have most of the features you find in western four star hotels.

Holiday Inn Central Plaza Beijing
1 Caiyuanjie, Xuanwuqu

Low – end Beijing hotels
Beijing hotels on the lower end are not that many. There are 350 two star hotels in Beijing. You will find only 50 one star hotels. At least they are not offered online. I have never stopped in one so I can’t vouch for quality here, but looking at prices of these, it can be very comfortable or absolute nightmare. Proceed with caution. Many of them operate as hostels with some private rooms. Price range for these Beijing hotels is $15 to $25.

The prices I gave you here will be different on every online booking website. However, I am staying in Beijing at least several days a month and using hotels that I have checked in many times over. I am talking to people who are traveling this city all the time. These prices are real and the best guide for you. Good luck finding some great Beijing hotels.
