This is a lovely (and reasonably priced) hotel for anyone wanting to avoid the large chains. It is set in an old courtyard house with spacious, well-equipped and comfortable rooms off a covered courtyard filled with sofas, ponds, lovely wood furniture and books. All the staff were welcoming and helpful. We stayed there when we first arrived and again on... More

We are so glad we chose this unique, small hotel. The location is great - just a 10-15 minute walk to the Jishuitan subway station and plenty of restaurants and stores in the neighborhood. The staff here are wonderful - friendly and so helpful. Celine is a sweetheart - we so enjoyed talking with her. Our room was quiet and... More

This hotel is lovely! If you lie a more authentic stay when you are on holiday this is perfect! Hidden down a little alley off a main Street, you walk into a beautiful cosy indoor courtyard with a little pond of fish, beautiful furniture and a really warm welcome from Celine! The rooms are all set off from the courtyard... More

Stayed for a week, lobby courtyard is cozy and warm and great for hanging out after sightseeing in Beijing. The staff is pleasant and extremely helpful, especially Celine, and was able to assist us with all of our requests. It really felt like our home away from home. Western-style breakfast provided every morning, we were able to request an early... More

I had a short stay here in mid-Dec just for a day, mostly went there by the reviews and was not disappointed. This hotel was built around a big mansion like house with cosy little rooms overlooking a eloquently decorated lobby/reception/breakfast area, with nice lighting which makes you cuddle up and relax. My room was small just ok for a... More

I stayed some days with my daughter who is studying at the Beijing Normal University. The location is excellent and quiet. It's very convenient with access to grocery stores, shopping centers and restaurants as well as underground and the University. The twin bedroom is small but it's fine for two small ladies. Room is clean and the decoration of the... More

Fantastic stay at Michaels house, clean and neat room with a good breakfast, far beyond expectations for the price paid. Staff very helpful and with reasonably good english. 10 min walk to station but easy to hail a taxi in the main street a block away.

My family in law was visiting from France and we decided to visit the Great Wall in Beijing. Michaels house was a very good choice. The personnel were very helpful with our kids (5yrs and 1 yrs) and even played with them. Also the reception area was a good meeting point for the whole family several sofa sets and plants... More
