My family of four stayed in this very beautiful courtyard hotel in November 2016 for 5 nights. We loved the location and its nearby eating streets, local restaurants and its proximity to the scenic lakes. The nearby old Hutong was a great traditional Beijing residential experience. The staffs are very professional and helpful. Linda, Seven and Vicky are excellent in... More

My husband and I spent a week in Beijing and stayed at the Sandalwood. The Butler Team's service was impeccable and was one of the highlights of our trip. They even wrote notes for us in Mandarin and in English to take with us during the day if we needed to ask for directions while sightseeing. The hutong where the... More

Very small (only 10 rooms) and beautiful hotel in the heart of the old neighborhood in the center of Beijing. We had our 8 year old daughter with us and the staff (Linda, Carrie, Joanna, Seven, ...) were simply amazing in trying to entertain us when we would come back tired and cold from a day of sightseeing. They taught... More

Absolutely stunning hotel and wonderful staff at a very reasonable price! Centrally located to many major sites like Tian'anmen Square, Beihai Park, and the Forbidden City. The staff is incredible! They're literally there for you all the time and conduct the activities themselves. Very helpful. Anyone who complains that this hotel is too far down the hutong is probably really... More
