I booked this hotel because of the great reviews at tripadvisor and booking.com. Also, I think staying at a old Chinese hutong style hotel can be a great experience for a trip to Beijing. After consider the value and location, I picked Michael's House. I atayed for 3 nights in March. Overall, it is a great hotel, but still some room for improvement.
Location - in a hutong (Alley) and lively neighbour. plenty street vendors and food in proximity; decent walking to the subway station (~10-15 minutes)
Room - comfortable and clean; nicely decorated as well
Staff - can be very friendly and nice (depends on your luck)
Noisy - because most rooms are facing the courtyard, which can become very noisy when someone talking there. During my stay, there was a kid started playing and talking in the courtyard since 7am. I like to hear kids laughing, but not at 7am during my vacation.
breakfast - room rate included comtinental breakfast. Staff refuse to replenish the food at 9am, however, even the breakfast suppose to run until 9:30am. This is very disappointing, especially they are not providing many choices of food and it should not take them long for replenishment. Also, compare to the room rate that they charge, the cost of food that they provided is minimal.
Staff - can be mean and rude (depends who you run into)
