Nice Hotel in the HutongPosted Apr 30, 2014
Cons: Overall it's fine, bathroom may need better cleaning
Location: Walking distance to many attractions and night life locations
If you look for a 4 stars hotel with all inside amenities, like gym, etc ... this is not for you. This is a nice hotel with an local charm that gives you access to an authentic experience of the Hutong neighborhood. Life there is always busy and full of foreigners visiting or eating around. We fell safe and welcoming during our stay. The location is not on a main road, thus cabs don't like to come to the door but many tours come and pickup people from the door. The hotel is very quiet and peaceful once inside, with a nice breakfast included, the rooms and bathroom are fine but not great and you don't stay in the Hutong for the comfort since you are mostly outside. Still need improvements but it's a great place to stay if you want to experience vibrant activities close by and by foot, like the Hou Hai bar street, Ghosts street and the Hutong itself.

Great family hotel in the midst of the old hutongsPosted Apr 21, 2014
Pros: The friendly, accommodating personnel, the old world atmosphere, and being able to walk the old hutongs and to many sites in Beijing.
Cons: For our family it was a perfect experience.
Location: Close to the subway, can walk through the hutongs to the drum and bell towers, Beihai and Jingshan Parks, the Forbidden City, even Tian'anmen Square.
We loved the personal, friendly attention of the staff especially to the children, and the inclusion of breakfast in the price of the hotel. Also, they accommodated us with better rooms when the facility we had requested was already filled when we arrived late because of an airline delay. The family atmosphere, fruit in the lobby at all times, concerts in the evening on traditional instruments, along with a tea ceremony and the old world atmosphere was just what we were looking for.

Convenient Hutong location, outstanding staff!Posted Apr 7, 2014 on Hotels.com
Wonderful stay. English speaking staff was very helpful and responsive. Authentic original refurbished Chinese building in the Hutong. American and Chinese Breakfast was included! Manager also included us in tea time. Perfect for anyone looking for an authentic experience verses a stale run of the mill hotel. Guests we met included Chinese, Europeans and Americans.

Room and toilet was clean. A quite nice traditional house converted into a boutique hotel. Large courtyard but was quite cold in the mornings when I had breakfast during winter (I dont think they have heating in the dining area). They stop serving breakfast at 9am so got to wake up before then. People at the hotel were very helpful and friendly. A very different experience to living in a normal hotel.
