          It is a quiet hutong stay and with old Beijing culture, it is just slightly away from the main street but let you away of the traffic sound, it was a cozy comfortable 5 nights stay over there, will definitely come back here if I visit Beijing again.

          About 5 mins walk from the nearest subway. The pathway to the hotel was too uneven and renovation is still on-going to resolve it. Staff were good and were able to fullfill our needs. Bed were soft and room was cosy, basic amenities are all available. Only complain is the sound-proofing, could hear the neighbor talking/coughing at night.

          We visited Beijing for a wedding and spent 10 nights at the hotel. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Nothing fancy but good quality. The ambiance of the hotel and the location in the midst of a hutong are very nice: walking distance to Forbidden City and other must-see-spots. All staff are very friendly and especially the receptionists are wonderful: interested and supportive, and most of them speak English very well. We warmly recommend the Beijing 161 Wangfujing Courtyard Hotel.

          Awesome stay!”
          We booked a family loft room and was impressed with the hotel - the courtyard and the loft room. It was located approximately 10 minutes from Dongxi station in the bustling area. Few Halal restaurants were about 15-20 minutes walk from the hotel and a big supermarket is just nearby. The beds (including the sofa bed) were made every evening - nice to rest after long walks during daytime. I have never written a review of any hotels that I have stayed but decided to do so for this hotel as it was a memorable stay for our family - highly recommended to all.

          OK courtyard hotel ”
          The hotel room was kept very clean, and there were fresh flowers in the room. Also, the hotel is located in an atmospheric hutong. The minus points were this hotel does not provide free drinking water in the room, and the shower's water flow is very small, almost like a mist. While this prevents excessive splashing of water in the tiny bathroom, it does take a long time to shower due to the small water flow. Front desk staff is friendly and can be better trained. It is quite disappointing when asking for sightseeing advice at the front desk to have the staff helplessly reply they don't know the details.

          Ok stay, very oily breakfast, nice Hutong location”
          The Beijing 161 Wangfujing Courtyard Hotel is well located, only a 15 minute cab to the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. What is really special about its accommodation is its characteristic Hutong setting which allows you to really immerse yourself in everyday Beijing local life style. Every day as we would walk out of the hotel through the Hutong you were surrounded by neighboring locals going on with their day. I believe that staying in a Hutong is a much more rewarding experience than staying at a fancy 5 star hotel on one of the main streets since the Hutong allows you to time travel and experience a much more ‘real’ China. In terms of the hotel’s service its ok - the staff were nice and helpful except for one instance on our last day - they said they would order us a cab for the airport and when there weren’t any cabs available they did not seem to care (Even though we were going to miss our flight). We had to leave the hotel and hail a cab on the street.

          Close to subway and all shopping area. The staff are friendly and helpful. For the price I paid, the value is about right. However, the towels are old. There’s no refrigerator in room. Due to the hotel is transferred from old neighborhoods, you will smell some unpleasant smell at courtyard. The breakfast is very basic, not buffet.

          I thought this would be a good location in central Beijing, but it’s located on a small, dirty Hutong (alley). Our room was clean, and the air conditioning worked well, but it was on the small side for four people and the second “bed” for two people was a thin mat laid over boards. Breakfast was included for 3 of the 4 of us, but it is served offsite at a different Hotel 161 a block to the south. The American breakfast was unexpectedly excellent though.

          The hotel location is great. Walking distance to Wangfujing Street. The subway is also within walking distance and is connected to most of the attractions. It would be good if hotel can consider offering complimentary water in the room. What is the point of having a kettle but no water provided. Housekeeping should be consistent, they did not wash the cups. It was left unwashed after I returned to the hotel end of day. However, the housekeepers and staff were still very helpful and accommodating.

          Bad location, design and no working shower”
          The location itself is quite hard to find, our Didi driver had trouble finding it, and it's within a small and very uneven alleyway - there are a lot of works being done and going there seems like off-roading! Our room was smaller than expected with visible holes and shoddy construction, worst of all there was a terrible sewage smell from the bathroom - and to top it off, the showers does not work at all! (not that we were looking forward to showering there anyway with that smell) We did complain the first night to give them a chance to redeem themselves, but alas, nothing was done. The hotel staff did not speak much English and while they seemed to try to be accomodating, in the end there were little to no action at all. The hotel has potential, but they really need to fix up a lot of this - it's not exactly the cheapest hotel around as well. The only redeeming quality is that their WiFi was decent...
