Great neighbourhood deep in the Hutongs

Posted Oct 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
Nice hotel with charming traditional Beijing courtyard. Hardware in the rooms are a bit worn and lacking attention to details. Service is good in general but somehow our request for a taxi to the airport, delivered 3 times, over a period of 3 days, never reached the concierge and we almost missed our onward train journey. The Hutongs in the neighbourhood are the best aspect of choosing this hotel. They are full of independent restaurants and shops and are exceedingly charming. But this also renders the hotel a bit difficult to find for taxi drivers. It's recommended to have your map loaded in advance to help the taxi drivers find the hotel.

Days of Glory Past

Posted Sep 16, 2014
Pros: Staff, courtyards
Cons: Overall state of repair, cleanliness, dirty carpets, no hot water.
Location: Great location, close to pedestrian shopping area, lots of restaurants
Beautiful exterior, worn out interior, friendly staff. Hotel has seen better days. In great need of an infusion of cash to bring it back to 4 or 5 star status. Carpets worn and dirty, little or no hot water. Never figured out breakfast, sometimes they had a minimal, and I mean minimal breakfast, more often than not, nothing. Staff was great though.

Great, non-corporate hotel

Posted Sep 8, 2014
Cons: The 'breakfast buffet' was extremely weak. I wouldn't even consider it a continental breakfast. Recommend not paying for it; go to Starbucks instead
The hotel staff was fantastic. Gave us a detailed map of the city, oriented us to the major tourist sites in Beijing, helped us with taxi rides, checked our departing flight for us and ordered food for us after hours. The hotel was actually a building for Qing Dynasty officials and retains the ambience of older Chinese architecture. That alone makes it worth the stay if you can tolerate being away from another anonymous corporate hotel.

Great location - hard to find, worth the effort.

Posted Jun 3, 2014
Pros: Location , friendly staff and good quality accomodation.
Cons: The breakfast room is in the basement which is a bit gloomy. With a little invest,ement a restaurant/breakfast room could be created in the courtyard.
Location: Central location. Most attractions walkable. 5 mins walk to a metro station. Go anywhere for 20p!
If you are looking for a hotel in Beijing that is not the usual bland multi-national chain , then this is the place for you. An oasis of calm in the middle of the city and close enough to walk to many of the local attractions. For those further away it is close to a metro station. Staff were friendly and the accommodation of a good standard. The one challenge is finding the place! It is in the "hutongs" which are a sprawling area of old alleyways. The initial approach is along a busy, touristy, bustling hutong - after that it is a leap of faith to walk down a much darker, narrower alley with no clear indication that a top class hotel is situated some way down it. It is worth the effort, full of character with the rooms arranged around tranquil courtyards containing pools of carp.

Hôtel très chaleureux et cosy .

Posted May 8, 2014
Cet hôtel est une oasis dans pekin . Idéalement situé au cœur des hutongs , ces ruelles typiques pékinoises , il est à la fois chaleureux élégant et très cosy . Le personnel est absolument exceptionnel , immédiatement reactif, pas intrusif . Je recommande à tous ceux qui veulent découvrir un autre pekin et une autre Chine . Fameux!

Kleines, sehr feines und ruhiges Hotel.

Posted May 7, 2014
Das Hotel liegt sehr ruhig mitten in den wuseligen Hutongs. Das im traditionellen Stil gehaltene Hotel hat uns sehr begeistert. Die Zimmer und vor allem das Bad sind sehr komfortabel. Das Bett riesig und sehr bequem. Lage auch optimal. Metro Station ca. 5 min. zu Fuß entfernt.

Hotel mit sehr schöner Atmosphäre in zentraler lag

Posted Apr 28, 2014
Pros: Die schöne Atmosphäre mit den Innenhöfen.
Cons: Das Frühstücksangebot könnte bei der Brotauswahl und der Marmelade sowie der Qualität der Säfte verbessert werden.
Location: s.o.
Das Hotel ist im chinesischen Stil erbaut mit 5 wunderschönen Innenhöfen, in denen man am Abend oder auch tagsüber sehr schön sitzen kann. Ein Innenhof enthält einen Teich mit Brücke und Fischen. Die Zimmer sind geräumig und ansprechend eingerichtet. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Frühstück war bei uns nicht im Preis inbegriffen und ist mit 98 Yuan nicht sehr günstig. Das Frühstück war in Ordnung, das Buffet enthielt vielfältiges chinesisches Essen, ein Koch bereitete auf Wunsch Eierspeisen. Die Lage des Hotels mitten in den Hutongs und direkt bei der touristisch sehr besuchten Nanluoguxiang (Hutongstrasse mit vielen Geschäften und Restaurants) ist sehr interessant. Auch viele andere Sehenswürdigkeiten sind gut zu erreichen.
