Michael's house literally became our home away from home; we stayed for more than three weeks. The location was super convenient, as I had to stay close to BNU. But what a lucky find it was! Huge thanks to Michael, Joanna, Celine, May, Little, sweetest cleaning lady and great cook--you all made both me and my son feel welcome, comfortable... More

Stayed there during a work trip. The place is great, real Chinese place, feels like staying in someone's home. Rooms are clean and furnished with traditional furniture. Breakfast is good and coffee is excellent. Staff is really friendly and lent us umbrellas as often as we needed.

We stayed 3 days at the beginning of our trip and 3 days at the end of out trip at Michaels House. The staff and hotel lived up to its many good ratings. It is a small establishment in a residential area away from crazy tourist center. It is decorated in authentic decor and is very comfortable. Staff are extremely... More

All in all a good choice of place to stay, with a welcoming feel in a hectic city. Rooms are very nicely decorated and clean, they face onto a tranquil inner courtyard. Staff are very friendly. A good, varied selection of food for breakfast. It's true it's a bit out of the very centre and 10 minutes walk from the... More

Very nice room, situated in a good location. Although not in the centre of tourist land,for me this made it better. You are located, amongst the locals and for me that is part of the point for coming. In my limited experience, The subway is by far the best way of getting around Beijing and line 2 is only 10...

We stayed our first 3 nights at Michaels House, a charming little courtyard hotel. As many reviewers have noted it isn't the easiest for taxis to find. However as we arrived after midnight and the street was very dark we did have the Reception speak to our Taxi driver to give directions - so it wasnt a problem. Out room... More

The hotel staff clearly deserves a 5-star rating: very courteous and always ready to help! The hotel also offers great service: money exchange with official rates, free wifi and fair breakfast. The hotel looks very traditional - according to our tour guide, it resembles a hutong (old Chinese house style). The rooms are nice: fairly sized, comfortable beds. The major... More

The hotel is tricky to find, but once you're there it's a great alternative to sterile hotels around the same price. The wifi worked, the room was clean, the breakfast had variety and was plentiful. Some finer points that might get overlooked were: fluffy white towels in the bathroom, soft 3-ply toilet paper, and hot shower that didn't go cold... More
