    Nice boutique hotel”

    This hotel is pleasantly located within the 2nd ring road which encircles the heart of Beijing where most of the attractions are located, and the closest subway station is just 500m away. While the room is pretty small and it doesn't come with bells and whistles, it definitely has most of the essential facilities. It would be even nicer if there are more hooks/rails for hanging towels. Breakfast is free and good. I would recommend it to anyone who likes to stay in a well-run hotel (within a historical narrow alley) that is different from those typical 4-5 stars international chains.

    Super tiny room as not expected. ”

    We have booked the slightly larger room from this hotel which stated to have 269ft2 but we were given a super tiny room which we guess it should be the smallest room type. English is very limited but we have all those hotel documents in english and that's very hard to explain the situation with the hotel staff for the room size / room type and so we gave up and just let it be. Goods: Hotel lobby and rooms are clean. Staff is nice and friendly. Room heat is warm enough for you in the freezing winter. Bads: Washroom facilities not up to standard. Shower is a bit user-unfriendly as the sprinkler is very hard to hang up / has no where to put while you want to keep the hot water running in this freezing cold beijing winter. Toilet bowl has been blocked once during our stay and we need to ask the hotel staff for helping to fix it. Guess its related to the old drainage system in the hutong area. Besides, shower hot water is not very stable.

    LOCATION : This hotel is located in a small alley (hutong) and taxi drivers will never go in to the hutong due to one-way traffic, please be prepared that you will have to walk till the junction to get a taxi. 5 to 6 mins walking distance to the nearest subway station. There are few restaurants, pharmacy and bakery shop nearby (within 3 mins walking distance). STAFF : staff are quite friendly and helpful. ROOM QUALITY : room is pretty small with limited space, ventilation system in the bathroom is not good, awful smell coming from the toilet. Overall OK.

    Ancient China Living Experience”

    The hotel is located along a narrow lane, surrounded by others courtyard houses. The entry to the hotel is narrow, which allow only one car and only one way. There is a railway station nearby, with 10 minutes walking distance. There are some dining places and convenience shop along the main road outside the street. Living facilities are clean, comfortable. Staff are helpful and informative. The hotel offers shared drinking facility, no dining facility, and inadequate tissue rolls provided, which i think these are the weak points of the hotel.

    Traditional chinese style house, restaurant near hotel, near to MRT station

    To admire its traditional chinese style house. good experience for stay, but the tidiness of room could be made more better. I often heard next door human's voice when they were talking and roars. This is the weakness point. fortunately, we had good sleep and stay in this hotel for 2 nights. Staff was friendly and nice. This hotel was okay with this price. Don't expect too much for this hotel, then you could be satisfied.

    Mitigated experience...”

    - Location : convenient because 5 minutes walking to Pigan’Li subway station. However, the hotel is in a hutong, in a popular district which isn’t convinient for everybody. - Room : very clean and pretty but BAD ODOR coming from the bathroom... - Quality of the service : AWFUL 1) WE HAVE BEEN WOKEN UP AT 2:15 AM by the lobby who called us on our room phone number because they couldn’t see on our passports the airport at which we arrived in China... 2) I asked for leting my luggage until 5 pm on the day of the check-out. Right after, when I kindly asked if the room payment was done with the deposit credit card or the credit card input on Agoda booking, the receptionist was rude and requested to me « what’s wrong with you ? » I’m used to the lack of service and the laziness in China but I’ve never seen such a lack of respect to the customer... Lastly, only 1 of the 3 receptionists speaks and understands English. I don’t recommend this hotel...

    Worst hotel stay ever!”

    This place needs to come with a warning label; stay at your own risk! There were insects. The bathroom smelled weird and not properly cleaned; there was a hose coming from the ceiling into the shower area. Above the sink is a sign that says water not drinkable; now, I don't ever drink water from bathroom faucets but it would be nice to be able to brush my teeth at least! The paint on the cracking and peeling walls are from three decades ago. Planned stay for 3 days but checked out the next day (If I could have left that night, I would have). Worst hotel I have ever stayed at! I have never written a review for any place/product before but this definitely warranted it.

    The hotel we stayed in was far away from the centre and anything interesting to see took us about 30 minutes by subway to get to. the people all looked surprised at us and were wondering what we were doing there. The hotel staff was unable to assist us in English accept for 1 friendly member of the night staff. wifi was okey though, even in the rooms. for a couples holiday I would not recommend this hotel. maybe more something for backpackers

    Clean, Simple, and a bit of a cultural experience.”

    Clean rooms, english speakimg staff, location

    We had one wall in the room which was too thin, but other than that, everything was equal if not better than what you would expect from a super8 hotel (which it is, by the way, though it doesnt say on the website). Ofcouse it took forever to check in, but that was because the staff is required by Chinese law to fill out a bit register form fir every foreigner that stays in hotels, i belive. Would totally recomend for people who need a better accomodation than a youth hostel, but dont want to pay lots. The building is a very old traditional building with narrow corridors. Probably not technically a hutong, but its got a bit of that feel to it.

    Staff to carry luggages and provide proper table or chair to put the luggages.

    As there is no elevator and the staircase is narrow and dangerous to carry luggages on our own, hence the staff should provide services to carry the luggages to the guest room. Also, the room is not spacious and difficult to put our luggages (1 big and 1 small).
