Ximen station has many exits leh
Unsure abt midtown
But for via hotel is less than 3min walk to exit 6 which is near the kfc building in ximending

Mid richardson is near by less than 10 mins walk.
But like many has said, the waiting time for the lift during peak period can be quite an issue for some.

Think Westgate hotel also around there.
Lobby looks classy for Westgate but the rooms surely is small.
Mid-richardson is bigger.
If you want, can try justsleep. But rather pricey.

Google map is gd to gauge how far the location. To ask one walk how long or far from place to place not zhun. Some ppl walk faster some walk slower.

For me, 1km is walkable but others may not. :s13:

True to the sense.
Like asking how long a KKJ should be.:s13:
But google map really is 很好用。
No data also can load map in hotel before heading out.
They will also pinpoint your location.

New as in recently pop up? There's no new attractions. There's the Shimen Cave / Stone Arch. There's a kite park nearby too.
