What a dumpPosted Apr 7, 2015
Hard bed, 1950 style furniture, only value is location

Traditional, but Very TiredPosted Mar 29, 2015
Pros: The overall look (if you didn't look too closely) felt like a boutique hotel Convenient location
Cons: Everything! This was probably a very nice hotel at one point, but very disappointing now. Staff need re training
Location: Convenient for bus stops (not subway) Convenient for shops/hutongs/bars/restaurants
Building work going on in lobby No restaurant or bar as closed? Did breakfast which was absolutely foul and would not appeal to Europeans Grubby room, wallpaper hanging off, damaged light shades, gouged floors Info on the hotel and surrounding areas things to do etc. all info out of date Safe didn't work No tea/coffee in room No wardrobe or cupboards for storing clothes - had to leave them in the suitcase No Sky TV - nothing in English Booked an early morning call which never came The staff spoke very little or no English Don't book tours through the hotel very disappointing and a total rip-off Don't stay on a weekend as full of domestic tourists with family's and very noisy Very hard to locate - do not rely on taxi drivers to know where this hotel is!!!! Witnessed an American family and an English couple having trouble booking out and it wasn't a pretty site with the unprofessional staff refusing to refund deposits as the guests had apparently damaged their rooms. It was distressing for all to witness especially as the staff seemed to be using delaying tactics as the guests were short of time for their flights and were obviously hoping they would just walk away without refunds.

Taxi's dont like it..Posted Mar 10, 2015
Pros: Feel, Bathrooms, Location close to town
Cons: Sound insulation
Location: Foodies will love this place
Hotel is exactly as named... a traditional feel, and a great location. The only problem is that taxis and cars cannot access it during most parts of the day or night, as its is in a restricted vehicular access area. You need to walk 280m to the main road, bags in hand, or 180m through the lanes, to get to an area that has a possible taxi available. Taxis know they cant access at night, so refuse to go there at night, even if you only want to be dropped off at the road 180m away, if you cant speak the language, they wont understand you, and refuse to take you. Thank god for the rickshaw drivers. Other than that, quite comfortable, but paper thin walls mean that you do wake up whenever someone walks past.

Traditional looking hotel with some issuesPosted Jan 19, 2015
This is a traditional looking hotel located in a sketchy back alleyway in the center of Beijing. The room was nice- two adjoined rooms with a king size bed and smaller bed + two bathrooms and heated floors and tv. I had several issues with this hotel: #1- Location- the hotel is located down a small alleyway, which cars cannot drive thru- this made it difficult to locate and for pickup/drop off by taxi. #2- Wifi issues- the wifi kept dropping out and had trouble connecting. #3- Construction- the hotel appeared to still be under construction with workers hammering and making noise outside of the lobby (although it was quiet in the rooms). ----- Here were some positives: - the hotel room felt very traditional and was nice and warm, which was a plus during winter. - hotel staff was very friendly and had an English speaking staff member available 24/7. They even booked a private car service to take us to he Great Wall and the airport. -Cost- very affordable. ---- After spending 2 nights there, I became more familiar with the area and was able to find my way around. It was a nice hotel; however, not sure if I would stay here again.

Tradisjonelt kinesiskPosted Jan 11, 2015 on Hotels.com
Dette hotellet ligger i et kjempe spennende område. Selve hotellet har ikke det så mye å by på, men fungerer optimalt for litt søvn mellom dagene man har i Beijing. Litt kaldt i selve hotellgangene, men rommene har varme!

전통적인 호텔Posted Dec 29, 2014 on Hotels.com
중국의 전통적인 분위기. 하지만 후통 한가운데라서 택시가 호텔까지 들어가기가 힘들다. 그렇다고 지하철에서 내려도 10ㅡ15분정도는 걸어야한다. 아침 조식은 비추.... 후통에서 밤새 술한잔하며 젊은을 느끼고 싶은분들께는 추천.
