This is a lovely little hotel in a classic Beijing alley. Our first room, a double, was small and not ideal. Thankfully we were upgraded and the second room was much better for a couple. The hotel is charmingly decorated with wonderful courtyards. A much more intimate experience than some of the other option son Beijing. Great breakfast too. Thanks to the staff for making our stay so welcoming.

We stayed for 5 days during June and found the hotel very relaxing and restful. Staying here was like staying in someones home with your own room. The courtyard is a very pleasant place to sit and read or have your breakfast. Breakfast if required is basic but fine to get you going of a morning. The bed was ok to sleep on and not to hard. Bathroom is quite small but always had hot water available. This hotel is reached from the main road by alleyways so it is best to have a map and address in Chinese. This is in a very safe neighborhood with plenty of local people, young and old who always seem to be socialising amongst themselves as this is a living neighborhood. In the future hutongs may slowly disappear so experience one when you can. The Metro line is only 5 minutes away, and from there Beijing is your oyster.

Charming Courtyard hotel. Nice staff. Very helpful. 7 min walk to subway. Most cab drivers will not know exactly where this place is. Without proper directions, you may have trouble walking to this place. I advise emailing hotel in advance and asking for detailed directions if you are taking the subway here, or for a taxi, ask the hotel staff to email you the address and directions in Chinese as most cab drivers will need that to get you here.

Great place to stay if you want to experience the feel of a chinese courtyard house in a hutong. Yes, the rooms and bathrooms are on the small side by today's standards, but that is part of the charm. They worked with what the original building had to offer when they converted it to a small hotel. The staff was really great. Could not have been more helpful.

We passed 7 nights in this hotel at the end of April 2013. Beautiful traditional hotel and very well located. I think the best location in Beijing but that's only my point of view. Located in the hutong, lots of life around (restaurant, coffee/tea places, shop) but the hotel is a very quiet hutong (alley). Not far away from the tube (10-15 minutes approximately, nice walk). Very good value for money. Breakfast buffet is OK but I would recommend to try the numerous places for breakfast you have around the hotel (if you like Chinese breakfast of course). They didn't have the standard room we booked and they uprate our room for 7 nights (it was a traditional room, very nice). Staff friendly but not always efficient. We booked a Beijing opera night with them, they told us to be ready at 6PM in the hall (when the spectacle started at 7.30PM) they told us at 7PM that the "car was broken and couldn't pick us up... maybe better to book the spectacles on your own as it is not so difficult to circulate in Beijing with the tube.
