Generally speaking, the bus from the East Bus Station will arrive at Beijing Liuliqiao Bus Station or Sihui Bus Station. You are suggested to consult the driver when you getting on the bus.

You can take bus no. 5 or 15 to get there within 50min. You can walk from the hotel to Huoshenmiao bus stop within 3min to find either of the buses. If taking taxi, it takes around 20min and CNY30 or so.
