Beijing Airport Business Hotel

img_2042img_2043I chose a flight from Vancouver to Ulaan Baator with a 19 hour layover in Beijing. As usual,  I booked my accommodation using www.booking.com.   I chose this hotel for several reasons.  At $21 / night it was inexpensive, offered a free shuttle service, and free breakfast.  I did not know where to pick up the shuttle but a gal at one of the Information desks in PEK called them for me and told me to go to Gate 5.  An inter-airport bus departed from that gate, but across the street was the shuttle bus parking. I had my reservation printed in Chinese, so the driver was able to determine I was in the correct spot.  It was about a 20 minute drive to the hotel, and checking in was quick and easy.  This hotel required the key car to be inserted in a slot to turn on the electricity in the room.  The room and bathroom were clean and basic.   I could not get the internet to work on my computer – but it did on my IPad.  In the morning I went for the free breakfast.  It was interesting.  There was nothing offered to drink.  Breakfast was a hot hard boiled egg, rice broth, steamed buns, and 3 kinds of salad.  I tried 2 of them.  They were very good but very salty.  Every hotel room in China has a kettle, and cups – but no tea or coffee.  I always have my own with me so I can have coffee when I wake up.  I caught the shuttle back to the airport expecting it to drop off at departures, but we were dropped off at exactly the same spot where they had picked us up.  I would certainly recommend this place if you are one a quick layover and only need a place to sleep and shower.
