12 Hours at the Airport in Bejing - cheap Sleep?unfortunately, I will have to fly home soon
the cheapest flight is offered by China Airlines with a 12 hour stopover
arriving at 1 o´clock in the night makes short excusions uninteresting, as I will be sleepy
is there any cheap accomodation in range of the Airport?

3There are no cheap sleep options at the airport (other than the floor).
The hourly hotel is a ripoff. And often, they'll say they only have 24 hour vacancies - they'll refuse to rent the available rooms for less time.
Most of the nearby Chinese hotels are dirty old dumps that charge a premium price. Don't let the touts twist your arm into one of those.

5Years ago, the hourly rooms in what is now called T2 were readily available and reasonably priced. But typical China, with their "shot themselves in the foot" stick the foreigner thinking, the hourly hotel in T3 is a major rip-off.
The only acceptable hotel near the airport is the Crowne Plaza in nearby Shunyi. They have a stand at the arrivals area. Chinese hotels aren't all bad, but the ones near the airport are.
