The hotel is hard to find, ensure you have the name written in chinese characters before going. My cab driver still had to pull over and google it because its sort of in a random alley. Overall appearance of hotel is decent and what you get for the price is fair. My bed was pretty hard. The staff is fairly helpful.

nice hotel in Hutongs close of the forbiden cityPosted Nov 25, 2013
Pros: quiet hotel and clean
Cons: wifi in the rooms
Location: forbiden city in the heart of teh Hutongs
Nice hotel but will be better if the could provide WIFI in the rooms prices are OK be careful of the restaurants in the street . when you exit the hotel DO NOT go to the first restaurant located first on the right side with menu in English at the door you will be charged by 2 or 3 times the price because you re foreigner

OK Hotel, but only for a short holiday.Posted Oct 27, 2013
The hotel is just average. Good location but 20 minute walk to the nearest underground but buses go there. Buses are 1 yuan each and underground is 2 yuan each. Only some of the staff can speak English. The hotel itself is very basic. The lobby is just a few chairs. The bar is very basic. Hardly any drinks/food. Wifi is only located in the bar, where signal can be either very good, or rubbish. The room is quite tight. Nice bed. A bit hard but OK for sleeping. Small fridge, TV, kettle and air con. There is nothing in the fridge which is good, as you can get drinks very cheaply from the outside shops (20p-50p for a bottle of water or fizzy drink). Air con can be a bit confusing to use. You may think you have it working, but a next time you try and use it, it won't work. We hard a bit of a problem the kettle where when we turn it on, we lost power to the room. This was fixed a few hours later as we found english speaking staff member. If there wasn't it could have taken a lot longer. The TV is basically all Chinese. There was one English speaking Chinese channel which was just fine. There are normally UK and US but the satellite had lost signal. The bathroom was very poor and rubbish. Although clean, the sink was slowly rusting away, and the shower leaks at the base. There was also a nice stain on the floor. The breakfast is not worth it. Very, very, very basic. A few drinks and little choice of food. Better to eat else where. Just as cheap

Good location, Room was spacious and clean but very old carpet. The location is reasonably close to the forbidden city. The breakfast was simple but served its purpose. No non-Chinese tv channels were available. A bit noisy during the day, especially at the reception

Convenient location, make sure you get a receipt fPosted Oct 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
It was convenient, it wasn't accessible as stated on the website. We had some problems because we didn't insist on a receipt when we paid the security deposit and they were reluctant to return the money. I like the area. Don't drink the water. I would stay there again if they had an accessible room.

Fantastic locationPosted Oct 2, 2013
Pros: Especially well located although taxi drivers found it hard to find. Good value!
Cons: Bathroom could be cleaner
Location: China art museum, forbidden city, night market, Wangfujiang st mall, Ji shian park
Walking distance to lots of sights, restaurants, ATMs! Jinshian park (which was so exciting!), authentic hutong.

There are better optionsPosted Aug 13, 2013
Pros: Location was good for visiting the north side of the Forbidden City.
Cons: It is a long distance from either of the nearby subway stations. About 20-30 minutes walking. At nighttime, the area around the hotel is poorly lit.
Upon arrival, I had to change rooms, because my original room had a malfunctioning lock, shower, and the window was directly in front of the parking lot. They upgraded me to a strange room which had two floors, but was little more appealing. The carpets were unclean, and coming loose around the edges. And like my first room, the shower did not drain properly, so you had to be quick or you would be wading in a pool. The third room was slightly more comfortable, but the carpets were still unclean, and the showers did not drain properly. I would not stay here again. Despite it's ideal location, I would advise travellers to find something located closer to the subway station. The Beijing Metro is cheap and quick.
