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

This Hotel met with all our expectations and more, the rooms where clean and comfortable with a balcony. The little cafe was fab and Xiauzuo and... 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

Pro's: - Great location. Subway just a few minutes away and lots of restaurants around. It took us about 30 minutes by taxi from the airport. - It's a small hotel, which makes it really cosy and comfortable. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful; they even helped me out with accessing my social media, which didn't work in China. -... More

This is not an American-style or a luxury hotel, but a comfortable place tucked away on an old-fashioned Beijing alley, where folks ride motorbikes and eat Mongolian-style grilled lamb and hotpot in tiny restaurants. The hotel staff was terrific, advising us on local markets, congratulating us on our purchases, and helping us navigate the city--even jotting notes for us in... More

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.
