This hotel is a little gem, with friendly English-speaking staff and a location surrounded by cheap, convenient eating places. Exploring the local hutongs is a great way to spend an afternoon, and it's a relatively brief walk to the greater sophistication of the Wangfujing shopping strip. Tours to the main sites of interest can be booked at the hotel.

Our family of 2 adults and 2 children (11yrs) stayed for 4 days here and loved it! The reception staff were great and spoke good English- very friendly and helpful with our questions. Great location for walking to Forbidden City and shopping street (Wangfujing). In the middle of Lishi Hutong- a typical living area. Our apartment was lovely- and although...

Location: 10 minute walk from metro station, partially mixed in with business districts-Starbucks near bus stop( Let's all be honest, you need coffee sometimes!) . The hutongs in Beijing are wonderful but can be in a mostly hutong area, or a mixed area like this one. We preferred the mostly hutong area, but this one is a mix. The hutong...

It's located in the Hutong, so you'll be in contact with an unusual style of life. PRO the location is quite good, near the centre of Beijing; the price is reasonable. The staff can talk and understand english in a good way. CON for 4 persons the room they gave us was a little too small; shame about the bathroom:...

The room was OK, the location was OK. They recommended an excellent restaurant nearby and their tourist packages were very convenient. Close to the subway, convenient to Tienanmen Square. However, their housekeeper "found" a scratch on the desk and the front desk wanted me to pay for the repair. Conveniently the look, "you're out of your freaking mind if you...

Located in a "Hutong", this hotel was really hard to be spotted on our first arrival, basically due to our unfamiliarity with Beijing underground and not to the directions provided by the staff. Things became easier ever after. The hospitality we experienced as well as employee responsiveness and empathy is exemplary. We had no problem at all communicating in english....

Attempted to give us room located in centre of building with no outside windows, however was allocated satisfactory room thereafter. Sewer problems resulting in unfortunate smells after simple activity like brushing of teeth or showering, plumbing expert required to solve non functionality of sewer system. Otherwise nice place in good Hutong location.

This delightful hotel gave us a glimpse of hutong life in Beijing. Would not have missed the experience. The staff was very accommodating, booked a Wall tour for members of our party. Very comfortable and stashed our luggage after checking out. Thanks for the memories.
