            I have stayed here for at least 7 times and the staff have already known me by now. it is a little bit pricey, but definitely worth the stay as it is located in a quiet alley within a busy tourist attraction. the place itself is historical.

            Excellent location for restaurants and bars or just browsing the small craft shops in the Hutongs. The hotel has character although is in need of refurbishment. The staff couldn't have been friendlier and walked us to the main street for traffic access (5 mins) to get a taxi to the train station. The hotel is value for money.

            This hotel is a very traditional Chinese hotel in a fabulous location. It is very basic and the breakfast is only Chinese food which needs to be eaten with chop sticks as no western cutlery is supplied. The bedroom was basic but clean. The staff only spoke very limited English. Please don’t book the hotel if you like western creature comforts. Overall very basic traditional Chinese hotel in good location

            Quiet, Great location, spacious room
            Check in was really fast (but the 'guard' was asleep at 11pm when I arrived!) They let me check the room before checkin, and for the around $50 a night agoda price, it was incredibly good! Very clean, no bugs, I chose the two single beds instead of the double bed. The internet was good, and the location is unbeatable! This is really the area you want to stay if you like to wander around old chinese-style beijing. Its 3 minutes walk to the busy walking street with 100s of cafes and shops. (nanluoguxiang street) That street is full of people so most normal taxis will not drive you to the hotel during the daytime but after around 10pm its fine. There is a convenience store opposite the hotel with drinks and snacks. I didn't try the food at the hotel. The receptionist spoke English fine, not super fluently but she let me change rooms and check out late. Any bad reviews of this place must be from crazy people who have never stayed in China! for $50 this is a real bargain in the best location in Beijing

            The decor was more than I could of hoped for old world China as promised but more.
            We arrived late down a dark alley was a bit nervous as I had promised my partner some old world China for our quick 2.5 day visit to Beijing but as we walked into the lobby my partner and I were surprised and relieved the décor was wonderful beautiful panelled and painted ceilings that followed us through the rabbit warren of the hotel to our room. The room was small but again the décor watch the charm of the hotel. Each room had a shared courtyard which was extremely relaxing and blended in with the feel of the hotel. The staff spoke enough English to make all transaction easy and friendly. The restaurant had a menu that was easy to read and the food delivered to the table was very good. From the hotel we managed to walk around the lake area at night it was a decorated with a festival feel with lots of little shops and clubs to sit and have a beer something to eat or a cup of coffee did a bit of shopping to. The hotel is positioned well we managed to do some sight seeing the great wall, the forbidden city and the temple of heaven which is not bad in 2.5 days. Would I stay in the hotel again yes would I recommend it to others yes I already have.

            I really loved this hotel the moment I saw it, with the red lanterns outside and the typically Chinese wooden furniture. Fantastic location too. The rooms are a little bit small but very nice despite that. The only downside is that the Italian shower doesn't drain well and water spills over onto the bedroom carpet! But it's still good value and makes for an enjoyable stay. NB. The restaurant, which includes an outdoor courtyard, is only open in the spring/summer.

            it was a nice stay. the single room was small but ok. the hot water needs to be run for a long time though before getting hot, but that onlyu happened on one day. otherwaise it was a lovely place. i though breakfast was slightly overpriced for what it was. overall though a lovely place to stay. i'll be back.

            good hotel to stay, just a bit distance from the bus (it locates in the middle of 2 stops). Far away from train (Beijing blocks are HUGE) the hotel is very cosy, stuffs are so nice that you can even use the tea room without order anything.
