I spent a week at the Lama Temple and loved it! The staff was really friendly and helpful from the moment I arrived and especially when I got a cold because of the bad weather conditions 🤒 The subway is really close. So easy to reach different locations in the city. My room was the "Lama Temple": big, cosy, clean... More

We stayed 4 nights at the Lama Temple Hotel. Our deluxe room was well appointed and clean. The heat worked well, which is good because it is cold in December! The food was reasonable and very good - we ate breakfast there three days. The staff was very friendly and helpful - everyone spoke English. Staying in the hutong is... More

I stayed in this hotel for the final night of my Chinese vacation and was very happy with the experience. The location is great, easy to find and a 20 minute walk to Dongzhimen station, where the airport express train terminates. The Lama Temple, Bell and Drum Tower neighborhoods and Nanluoguxiang shopping street are all in easy walking distance. The... More

Our pick up shuttle dropped us off in an alley and told us to walk 5-6 mins, it was about 25 mins from the airport. Not worth the 300 yuan. Found the hotel which at first looked like some small building. Front lobby is cute has some seats and chair to Lounge in or to order food and drinks, got... More

Stayed here in June 2015 with a friend. Taxi driver knew exactly where it was and dropped us at the bottom of the lane and we just walked down. Staff were very welcoming and helpful, helped us book taxis etc. Rooms were clean and charming! Great location just behind 'ghost street' with tons of restaurants, however we liked the little...

The hotel is in an alley (just wide enough for vehicles) off the main road. Other reviews have listed this a a negative but I didn't consider it to be, as leaving the hotel put you right in the middle of the real Beijing and it was a chance to immerse yourself in everyday life. If there were other tourists... More

My family and I stayed for 2 nights in August 2015. We booked 2 double rooms, 1 single room and 1 Family Suite. Positive: Friendly staff at check-in and throughout our stay. Charming courtyard hotel to experience old-style Beijing. Good in-room amenities - traditional style Chinese tea set, A/C (could be colder), free Wifi, TV, and hairdryer. Personally, I also... More

We stayed in 161 Lama Temple hotel for three nights as one of the stopovers in our around the world trip. In Beijing we were looking for something slightly different. Not typical high building with a sterile rooms, but something more traditional, something Chinese. And I have to say 161 Lama Temple hotel was that place. LOCATION Hotel is located... More

Wonderful hotel near Lama Temple. Staff always cheery with good English skills. Room very nice very clean. Nice breakfast included. Staff very helpful with advice and directions. Only downside bad smell in bathroom but think that is typical in Beijing. Would definitely stay here again.

We booked this hotel using Trip Advisor and stayed for 5 days during the Mid-Autumn Harvest Festival. Dana Yang was the person we most frequently interacted with at the property. She was incredibly helpful and generous extending tips and suggestions. The hotel is a well-located property, clean and met our needs. I suggest a room in the back on the... More
