Walking distance to tiananmen square,forbidden city,wangfujing and east tiananmen subway. If you tour the forbidden city, u can choose to exit at east gate. The hotel is only 10min walk from east gate. Basic amenities, clean room and friendly and helpful staff.

We loved this hotel and its location and felt it was just the perfect hotel for travelers like us but before doing a review I asked the desk clerk (or manager, I'm not sure what she is) if it was okay because I had seen in a prior review that they didn't accept Westerners thought I might have just snuck...

Took almost half an hour to find this place on a cold morning at 7 deg cel! In the end, took a cab. Only checked in to the room in the afternoon, bathroom was very basic, and the room was cold. Bed wasn't that fantastic..

I recently received an e-mail from the Tourbooking China website (beijing landscapes), through which I booked and paid for a one night stopover here, to say that my booking is being cancelled as "this hotel only accepts Chinese guests" Lisa from the website was very apologetic and refunded my money immediately. fair warning to anyone making arrangements to stay here...

I agree with the comments of the previous reviewer. My parents were put in a very small room and changed to another room on request, however the new room had a really dirty carpet. My room was fine except the shower in the bathroom was broken so you couldn't adjust the temperature. This was a particular problem as the water... More

Lovely, quaint, traditional courtyard hotel. If you're looking for upmarket hotel with all the modern day luxuries, then this may not be for you. Situated further back from Nanchizi Street. Peaceful and quiet. The room we were in was lovely and spacious with airconditioning which was a blessing. 1 queen and 1 single. Very comfortable and quiet. Nice and clean.... More

We booked this because most reviews said they are very helpful and speaks very good English. They were right. We needed a lot of help in directions. We stayed in a ground floor corner room. It was secluded but the entrance to the room was unkempt and a bit smelly. The bed covers/linens were itchy. The bed was as hard... More

The title should say it all (see Ji House !) For more details... Getting here is a bit tricky but usual with most hutong places. The atmosphere is nice if it is your first time to China, but for expats and Chinese, the atmosphere and courtyard are average at best. It's nice that it is covered for when it rains,... More
