Travel Blogs from Beijing
We flew direct from Newwark to Beijing which was a 14 hour trip. The purpose of this trip was to attend a friends wedding in the town of Harbin in Northern China. They made our hotel arrangements and we stayed at the Huguosi Hotel. This is a great hotel to stay at since it is the middle of one of Beijings older neighborhoods. We went to sleep and …
I am getting into some routine here! up around 8 am, shower, and together with Nan we go to a famous breakfast restaurant here, full of things I never saw in my life, but very good! OK, I skipped the filled intestine ;-) Her son joined us around 9, and we all took a taxi to the Forbidden city, there they dropped me off (they saw all of it already …

Very good hotel, one chosen by Chinese people (I am the only foreigner, but they speak English all right) heating is working fine (fortunately, outside it is -10 degrees celsius at night!), bathroom is ok, hot water available on all time. Located very close to busy hutongs with lots of restaurants and in the XiCheng district, so close to the Forbidden City, the Beihai Park, Xi Hai and Hou Hai lakes. I would recommend this hotel!
