These words were on the back of the computer of the staff in the courtyard of Michael's House. And it is so true: in Michael's House you find a home that is friendly, welcoming, clean, efficient and fun! We stayed there for 12 nights and immediately on arrival got an upgrading of our room without asking for it and without... More

My friends and I stayed at Michaels house for 5 nights. We booked the hotel based on the great reviews we read here on tripadvisor. It did no disappoint. The service was fantastic, the girls were amazing, and the rooms were very clean and nicely decorated. The courtyard atmosphere was my favourite part. After a long day when u just... More

This is a great, traditional looking hotel. The staff are one of its strongest assets as they were very friendly and always eager to help with questions and advice. The room that we stayed in, although small, was very well maintained, clean and overall very sufficient for our needs. Location-wise, the hotel is off-the-beaten path, on a little alley (that...

I too was here at Michael's House for a month while teaching, and it was the very best part of life in Beijing. The staff was excellent -- cordial, helpful and hard-working -- the rooms comfortable and well kept, and the atmosphere inside the small guesthouse and out in the neighborhood was incomparable. Located in an out-of-the-way urban area teeming... More

Extremely comfortable, tastefully decorated, restored traditional Siheyuan (courtyard) home in an active residential neighborhood in the northern Xicheng district of Beijing. Just north of the gracious, restful Back Lakes and BeiHai Park-. Warm, accommodating, welcoming staff. Perfectly located a few short blocks from the Beijing Metro (Jishuitan Station, Line 2). Whether a short stay of a few days, or a... More

I stayed at Michael's House for a month while teaching in Beijing. There's a reason why others have rated it so well. It's just an oasis in Beijing. In a city full of big, bland, and faceless hotels with hard beds, Michael's House is small, beautiful, and comfortable. The best part, though, are the extremely friendly and helpful staff. The...

I love this hotel. It is beautiful and peaceful, and the staff are wonderful. It is in a lively area with plenty of restaurants, but the hotel itself is very peaceful and calm. The location is convenient for the main sights of Beijing, it takes less than an hour to get to Tienanmen Square for example. Also, getting to the... More

We stayed at Michael's House for 5 nights. The best part is the shared courtyard where the friendly and helpful staff chat to you, offer suggestions and generally make you feel very welcome. It is also lovely to have breakfast in the courtyard and meet other guests. The staff cooked me an egg every morning to accomodate my food requirements.... More

We had a wonderful stay at Michael's House. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Location is good: it's only a 5-10 minute walk to the nearest subway station (jishuitan) which gets you fast and very cheap to other places in town. Although the hotel has a good location, the hotel itself is calm and peaceful. Another plus is that... More
