Anybody giving this accommodation more than one star is either a backpacker or just trying to justify why they stayed here. I gave one star because of friendly and helpful staff plus the availability of Wifi.
As for the accommodation we were put up in nothing more that a bedroom and a bathroom, that's all.
The bed room had one chair upon which one of our suitcases was placed. The other, plus two other cases had to be put against the wall and when required to be opened had to be lifted on to the bed because no other room.
The bathroom was serviceable but the constant stench of sewerage was offensive to Western senses.
Overall the courtyard needs money spent on it, if only to make obvious and basic repairs and renovations.
In my view it, in its current state is badly run down.
If you must, one night here is enough just to stay you have stayed in a hutong.
As previously mentioned, Wifi important because you are better off browsing tin one of the actual courtyards than staying indoors.
