Good budget option.

This hotel's target market is domestic Chinese guests. As such, the level of amenities expected is different than what we expect in the U.S. Additionally, the hotel is not in a tourist-centric area, so you get a more authentic China experience, but you also spend time walking through a neighborhood that appears to be dedicated to shops selling materials for commercial ventilation. Finally, the physical plant of the hotel has seen better days, though some of that is the fact that the hotel has been made out of buildings from an older part of Beijing - it is in a hutong. We enjoyed our stay. The amenities were basic, but well done. We did not go to China to spend time in our hotel room, but when we did, we were comfortable. We went in April. I am not sure if it would be as comfortable in the summer heat. We purchased a small fan on our first day in China so that we could moving air for sleeping, which worked well for us. The staff did not speak much English, but were very pleasant and very helpful, going out of their way for us several times during our stay there. Close to the Ping Anli subway stop. The courtyard was a pleasant change from the bustle of Beijing.
