Based on your budget, here are a few decent hotels city-center hotels that seem worth exploring. Let's quickly check them out.

1. Inner Mongolia Grand Hotel Wangfujing (Recommended)

The Inner Mongolia Grand Hotel Wangfujing is an elegant 4-star that is superbly located to public transportation options, sights, eateries and shopping. With plush interiors and an extensive range of onsite amenities, this hotel offers the most bang for your buck. And with tariffs that won't leave you bankrupt, you can expect nothing but a grand stay!

A guest raves:

This hotel is all about quality. Though it's a 4-star, the standard is 5 star all the way. Room was well laid out, great amenities, very comfortable bed, strong water pressure in the shower. Location is perfect, not far from the central train station and just opposite a very nice shopping centre and metro station. Not far from the main shopping street in Beijing and also only a couple of metro stops to Forbidden Palace. This hotel originally built for visitors from Mongolia has a buffet restaurant serving western and Mongolian foods with a huge selection along with beer and wine at Vegas prices. There's also a Chinese restaurant. You will not be disappointed here!!

2. Shatan Hotel (Recommended)

Shatan Hotel enjoys a picturesque locale with the verdant Jingshan Park flanking it on one side and the acclaimed Forbidden City a short stroll away. This traditionally-decorated 3-star property lies smack dab in the center of Beijing, close to entertainment and shopping haunts and is your best bet for living like a true local.

A happy guest elaborates:

I am a single elderly seasoned female traveller. I found the Shatan Hotel to be just what I wanted: clean, conveniently located with all necessary conveniences for me (safe deposit box in room, tea/coffee, tv, airport shuttle) and striking a good price/value ratio. The staff were friendly and could speak English. It is situated in a little alley , next to a Hutong, where one can observe and experience authentic Chinese life.  I felt safe at all times and ate out alone in the street at night where several cheap and yummy eateries have mushroomed. Dongsi subway is two bus stops away, but is walkable if you have the energy and desire to watch local life. All in all, highly recommended!

3. Novotel Xinqiao Beijing (Recommended)

Hotel Novotel Beijing Xin Qiao is another city-center gem with all the positives that make a hotel stay-worthy. Yes, it has all the usual classy 4-star amenities and  facilities and the subway station is right outside the front exit, a tempting bakery sits right next door and important landmarks are an easy amble away but the USP of this hotel undoubtedly is the natural hot spring water supplied to each of its rooms and the spa. Reason enough to stay at the Novotel, ain't it?

Here are loads of glowing reviews on the place.
