Oase der RuhePosted May 8, 2015 on Hotels
Das Hotel ist eine Oase der Ruhe in einem sehr lebhaften Viertel. zu Fuß lassen sich viele Sehenswürdigkeiten Pekings bequem erreichen. architektonisch ist das Hotel angelehnt an die alten Hutong-Höfe. das Personal ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. die Betten ein Traum (wir hätten sie am liebsten mitgenommen). Allerdings ist das Mobiliar schon etwas abgewöhnt, was aber durchaus seinen Charm hat. wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen.

Great neighbourhood deep in the HutongsPosted Oct 20, 2014 on Hotels
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 PastPosted 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 hotelPosted 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.
