This hotel is hard to find but when you find it you are happy you did. The hotel has only 11 rooms and is in an alley with no parking. The alley is great! Restaurants, shops and people. You feel very safe. There is a "lobby" small bar & restaurant , a place where guest relax and meet each other.... More

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights, and we highly recommend it for the kindness of the staff, the cleanness and confort of the rooms, and for the central position. Besides it's very colorfull, characteristic, and it's a peace full place to go back after a day in the chaotic city. The ratio price/quality, is excellent.

Nice, authentic, clean, very close to subway, in a quiet arean. At first might be difficult to find, but if you come out of Beixinqiao subway station and walk towards Lama Temple, turn right when you see the sign Beixin Hutong, walk for 2-300 meters and you will find the hotel on the right. The rooms are nicely decorated and... More

First time in china and first hotel. Great staff, really supported us for making reservations of some trains and trip to the Great Wall, and also changing money. Good English speaking. Great location into a hutong, near subway, Lama Temple and Confucio Temple.

We've been living and working in China for the last 10 months, and this turned out to be the perfect choice for our holiday trip to Beijing. The room was clean, staff were friendly and spoke excellent English, and the location couldn't have been better for us. We are both vegetarian, and placing ourselves in the Lama Temple area we...

We stayed three nights at 161 Lama Temple in August and loved it. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly and all receptionists spoke good English. The hotel itself is situated in a typical Beijing hutong, animated and buzzing with local street life without being noisy. The rooms are nicely decorated and clean with comfy beds (of the... More

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

Has two nice courtyard (front and back) and a roof deck, shared a 4 bed dorm with 3 other family members (young teens).

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.
