Through booking.com, I paid EUR 80, which is not a fair price given the service level and the overall hostel design: 1- The host was not able to transfer a phone call to my room. 2- The reception desk, the breakfast place, and the bedrooms are basically all in the same place, namely the courtyard. It means that when you... More

First most, the staff of this hotel offer great service. They speak above average english and can help you plan what to see in Beijing. They played a key role in arranging our Great Wall visit and also gave us heads up on what is open and not on what day. This is not a 'posh' hotel per say with... More

my wife and I stayed at Michael`s house for 4 nights and absolutely loved our visit. The staff are excellent and friendly and couldn't not have been any more helpful. We had many a long chat with other guests and also staff in the covered dining/relax area. We ate mostly at the small locals restaurants and although we couldn`t speak... More

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...
