TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Ministry of Education Hotel Beijing
Provided by the Ministry of Education as I am on a teacher exchange program, so not chosen myself. Location is brilliant as it is right next to AFS's offices (part of the MOE), and just along from Tiananmen Square.
The staff are really helpful when I have a couple of issues. It's a bitold-fashioned decor wise, but facilities are fine, with broadband, and most importantly a good, big, hard, bed and a good, hot shower.

Many people are finding it hard to change their body clock so they are only getting about 4 hours sleep a night if they are lucky, I've been okay as it seems I can just sleep whenever I want to, but we are all getting pretty run down, we were also having to adapt to the high pollution levels in China!

... map!!! Managed to get to hotel in one piece with us only having to give further directions once! The nice hotel man who speaks no English managed to sort out the hot water issue in the shower and then without electrocuting himself (very scary) changed the wiring and socket. Went back to our local cafe for dinner as brunch there has been so reasonable and good quality. I got my cat fix too!!! One thing that continues to impress me is the access to wifi ...
... china! It was only 10am and the queues were miles long! We quickly abandoned this idea and decided to do a walk of Beijing, and boy did we walk!! We found a really cool area too which was very hip like East London! There were miles and miles of little streets with funky shops and bars, very busy with tourists tho but glad we ...
... and we were pretty set on McDonald's haha. We finally found it and got our meals (24Y) and I also got a mcflurry with bits of chocolate chip cookie in it haha! As much as I wanted to avoid places like this I think I really needed it and the protein after hardly eating anything for the past few days! So I don't regret it haha! We went into the Olympic park and wandered around. At this point it was getting cold and dark so we didn't stay too ...
