The staff was so great. For a true cultural experience in a real hutong this is the place. It is located in a traditional hutong area, surrounded by local residents and Chinese history. You can take breakfast in the hutong or in a main street has a very good pastry with a very cheap prices. Not have the luxury or... More

I chose this hostel based on the reviews and comments about the hutong area, but unfortunately, it was not what I expected. Bobby from the reception was very helpful with directions and buying a train ticket for me right in the middle of Golden Week, which was highly appreciated. While the facilities were basic, the beds were comfy and the... More

I've stayed at Templeside twice, first in 2011 and most recently in September 2013 and have really enjoyed it both times. Bobby (owner) and his team are great and will also help arrange train tickets, outings and anything else you might need. For a true cultural experience in a real living/working hutong this is the place. Note that this is... More

We had a lovely stay at this guesthouse for 4-5 nights. It is located in a traditional hutong area, surrounded by local chinese residents and history. It is near to a subway stop or its easy and very cheap to grab a taxi on street nearby. Clean, comfortable, quiet and charming. Helpful and friendly staff. Quirky communal area with ping-pong...

The Guesthouse is really cool. It's more of a hostel than hotel in my opinion. Check the pics. Hotels don't normally have ping pong tables, books and bikes to be borrowed. The staff is very nice. Bobby and his wife are very helpful as are all the girls working the desk (including Gracie; a previous review gave her bad marks... More

Our family of 4 stayed here for 4 nights in July. There are 2 Templeside's - one is a hostel and right around the corner is the Templeside Deluxe courtyard house where we stayed. The neighborhood where it is situated is just delightful. A real slice of the 'old' Beijing and I would wholeheartedly recommend it. There were very few... More

Templeside was a pleasant quiet stay. We had 2 adults, 4 children stay in a 3 bunk room with private bathroom. It was clean and quiet. It's a 15min walk (holding the slowest one) to subway station,we timed it. With the kids normal pace it would take 20/25min. We got to see a lot of interesting things and try food... More

Located within a traditional Hutong near to Beijing´s City Center, Templeside offers easy acess to both, modern and traditional Beijing. The Hutong is full of small streets with markets and different tasty foodstalls. The rooms open into an traditional courtyard. Staff is nice and very helpfull.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A brand new deluxe hutong traditional house, run by the trustable team from Beijing Templeside House, which is the No.1 winner in 2007 in all China, voted by all hostelworld customers! Beijing Templeside Deluxe is a 'Si He Yuan'(a compound with houses around a square courtyard)hotel in a comfortable pure Chinese style with Qing dynasty characteristics.There are seven guest rooms and a beautiful covered courtyard as a multi-function hall.All rooms have air conditioning, Internet service, phone, TV, and even a ice fridge. The house is decorated with handmade colored paintings, antiques, traditional style wooden furniture, and various kinds of handicrafts.Our honored guests can enjoy the beauty of Chinese culture and arts here.Every Tuesday afternoon, we will have free dumpling making show for guests. Every Thursday afternoon, we have a free tour to explore our local hutong neighborhood. Living here can help you get a better understanding of Beijing's local life. You could never get the same feeling and traveling experience from any other places. Wandering in the long and puzzling hutong, smiling to lovely local neighbors, seeing the blue sky in the no-roof courtyard, hearing the whistle from swiftly flying-by doves, watering the garden, walking the dog, the Templeside house gives you 'a glimpse of what life in the city is really like'. The hotel located in the center of Beijing. It is about 30 mins walking to the Forbidden city, Bei Hai park, Tian An Men and most important sightseeing places. Over 20 buses and subway around the hotel make all traveling very easy. ... more   less
