A Real Chinese Hotel with all Western needsPosted Dec 19, 2007
The hotel was an old palace of a Ming Princess. Very small but oozing charm. The hotel staff, really more a motel by american standard as it was so small, would go out of there way to make sure that I was happy. The location is inside a Hutong, that gave it great atmosphere. Not for the faint hearted, as they my not feel comfortable staying in a Hutong. But for me, it just added to the entire experience. They did a wonderful job renovating the place but the courtyard is open air, cold in the winter. But had it been enclosed, it would have taken away from the charm of the place. Internet access, hospitality, and location makes this hotel a wonderful experience. Just remember that it is not a large hotel and doesn't have a gym, ect. But if you want a truly Chinese experience without the hassle, this is the place.
