I booked this on elong.net and got a Queen room, private bath, for only 118 kuai a night. It's relatively easy to find and has a good central location. Staff are friendly, helpful and speak English quite well. The room is not luxurious, but is more than enough for a place to stay.

He explained how International SOS is there to act as a source ...

They live in X'ian and have been on holiday in Beijing. It's amazing how with a pen, paper and more importantly the resources of the iPhone how much you can communicate.
We have just all got into bed. There are 6 to our section with an open corridor to the side, me, Donna ...
... After a very long walk we went to the hutong area, a traditional place where some of the local people live. It was cool to see how they lived but I found it so strange how they lived in small, what we would call slum areas, yet drove a porsche or mercedes. Just totally different world! We then went to a Chinese tea ritual, which was really cool & I managed to drink 4 & half cups of different teas. Big achievement for me as you's know I'm a big tea hater! ...
