BEIJING PALACE HOTEL is not the name of the hotel. The real name of the hotel is XIN MINGJI HOTEL, and "Beijing Palace Hotel" is the English version. This is an important information to note because you will not easily find Beijing Palace Hotel on the maps and the local drivers also do not know this place.
I arrived at 1am at Beijing airport, and had to ride a taxi instead. When I was out, I asked the Chinese drivers to drive me to "BEIJING PALACE HOTEL" and nobody can determine where that place is. I was then endorsed to a different driver who seemed to know where this is but also had a hard time knowing this. Due to this, he had to stop a couple of times and ask me where the address again is.
At the end, I had to pay 500 CNY (around 100 USD), which I know is a scam or is too much, but I had to pay just because the I didn't want the hassle of arguing with a driver who doesn't really understand English, and someone who also had a hard time looking for the hotel.
Even the tour guide, had a hard time looking for "BEIJING PALACE HOTEL", I had to give the phone to the receptionist so the receptionist can explain it to the tour guide on the phone where exactly XIN MINGJI HOTEL is.
Also,when I asked for an assistance to hail a taxi to the airport, instead of them calling the standard taxi service, I was endorsed to ride the tourist taxi they are partnered with next to the reception, which is more expensive.
