Its a really nice hotel situated very close to the subway station. The staff and the management of the hotel are all extremely cooperative and nice so being a first time visitor to Beijing --- its a great experience.
I was travelling to Beijing for work and it was my first time in china so the assistance of the hotel staff proved really useful in all spheres.
for tourists to Beijing a week at this hotel gives the perfect platform to explore this great city. Its convenient for south Asian visitors as well.
the staff are very nice but if they speak better English that would be very helpful to the ordinary foreign visitor who does not know Chinese.
there are a number of 7/11 style stores open 24/7 so getting things to eat or items of daily use isn't a problem.
the BIG CHALLENGE with this property is locating the hotel within the hutong.. its almost impossible to do so in case you don't know Chinese or are unfamiliar with Beijing. Its near Andingmen station but landing at Andingmen without knowing where exactly to go isn't a good idea...
do have a phone wherein you can get someone to check in Chinese with the hotel staff on how to get there else its going to be really difficult.

It's a nice and small family-owned courtyard hotel north of Beijings citycentre within the hutong area and inner Metro-circle of line 2. It's a fifteen minutes walk away from station Andigmen or Guloudajie. Trolley 107 goes along Gulou Dongdajie which can also be reached within 15 minutes walk. Drum and Bell tower with the nighlife areas Qian Hai and Hou Hai are 20 minutes walk away. The owners, except One young woman, do not speak english, but with free wifi, just use google translator and communication will work. Just the light bulb in front of my room (west wing) bothered me at night as the light was shining through the bathroom window and its glassdoor into the room. Hung a textile over the door.

Great hotel for the price! We stayed here in October and are already planning to stay again. It's nothing fancy but it's clean and quiet and in a great location. The subway is a five minute walk down the street and it can take you anywhere in the city. Most of the staff speak enough English to communicate with us with our very limited Chinese. If you're looking for a decent hotel on a low budget, I would recommend this one highly.
