Beijing 161 Lama Temple Courtyard Hotel is a great 11 room hotel in the Beijing hutong area. Close to two metro stations is a perfect spot to start your city adventures. Being placed in a hutong allows you to go beyond the wide streets and monstrous buildings of the Tiananmen Square and see some more real Chinese life. The hotel... More

Website pictures are a little deceiving; facilities are not perfect but very good for the price and staff is very friendly and helpful. Has two nice courtyard (front and back) and a roof deck, shared a 4 bed dorm with 3 other family members (young teens). The ”ensuite” (our restroom) wasn’t so private, it wasn’t even in the room, but... More

I had a great stay with the staff actually buying me breakfast one morning!!! I would recommend for couples and solos. The location was great down a small hutong but close to restaurants, transport etc. Rooms are a bit small but welcome to China.

I was excited to stay in the hutong and I will agree that the location is excellent. We arrived late and they were there for our arrival. Our king bed, that we had reserved, basically filled the room and the bathroom was so stinky, that we asked to see another room. We ended up opting for the twin beds and... More

It is in a narrow hutong where in the heat of the summer people spend a lot of their time outside in the streets. The hotel is completely renovated with small but clean rooms. They have a few double rooms as... More
