This hotel is a Chinese style hotel in a courtyard, but not a Marriott Courtyard. This is not a hotel for five star junkies but the experience is well worth it. We had a remarkable stay because of the small size of the hotel (<10 rooms) plus excellent food and extremely competent staff with excellent people skills. Definitely worth while

We stayed here for 3 nights and glad we chose to stay in a hutong. The hotel is located down a lane, which is full of cafes, bikes, cars passing each other and people! Inside the hotel, it is quiet, with a small reception desk, located in the sitting/dining area. The room comprieses of sofa chairs, draped with rugs, large... More

The hotel was the perfect place for three pals to acclimatize to a new culture, exciting food and biking in and around Beijing. We stayed there two nights in preparation for a nine day bike tour. And I can't think of a better place to start. The rooms were clean and comfortable (and pretty)!! The staff so kind and tremendously... More

I wanted to experience the culture & decided to find a hotel in one of the hutongs. Although small only ~10 rooms I am glad I chose this one. People have said it is hard to find & these narrow streets can be missed but the hotel sent me directions which I printed & sent to my driver: Johnyellowcar. Although... More

We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights. Hotel is "hidden" in a small local alley which might at first seem a bit scary to newcomers to China, however once you get to know this alley better you actually start to love it - it is filled with local small shops and restaurants and people are all very friendly.

We wished we could have stayed here longer. Lovely authentic feeling small hotel located down an alley in the older part of the city. Handy to the metro Was great to walk back in the evening and see the locals cooking their meals on the side of the road as we approached the hotel. The rooms are wonderfully decorated, we... More

Having read a number of reviews on Tripadvisor for Beijing, we booked Hotel 161 in Lama Temple. The reviews mentioned the location was out of town and in the Hutongs which we did not really understand. We tried 4 taxis at the airport before anyone would take us. Eventually we got a driver and the cost was 100 RMB to... More

I haven't stayed at this hotel, but I live down the road just a short distance, and I come often actually to drink coffee or have breakfast. Saturdays and Sundays before 11am, there aren't many options to get Western style egg dishes, but these folks do a nice job. The staff here have been dutifully studying Western-style customer relations, and... More

This small hotel provides a warm welcome, with friendly and helpful staff, a good location near to the subway and close to many restaurants. The hotel is situated in an alley which gives an authentic feel of working life. There is a good choice of western type meals provided daily. Staff will help you organise any trip to local attractions.... More
