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

Excellent location (500m from north-east exit of Tian'anmen station, just follow Nanchizi street [south chizi st. in Google maps] until the sign with the hutong on the right side appears). The hotel staff was very friendly and has good command of English. Particularly the young women (we don't remember her name, unfortunately) was extremely nice and helpful. The rooms are... More

This hotel is perfect for a Chinese flair and style. If you want to experience staying in a courtyard, which is the ancient lifestyle, here it is. There are many courtyard in the Hutongs to stay at but I chose this one because the courtyard was enclosed. We came the last week of March and wasn't sure of the weather... More

The rooms were okay, but the bathrooms were a bit dirty. The courtyard was quite nice, although the smokiness from an establishment in the basement completely ruined the atmosphere. The staff was average, but moved our unpacked belongings from one room to another while we were out without informing us.

This place really shows a real experience of the country, no good staying in a western hotel if you want to experience Beijing, may as well be in NYC. The staff are extremely helpful and really try hard to accommodate westerners. It is very basic but reasonable for the price, very close to Forbidden City just a few minutes walk.... More

Not suitable if you like a wardrobe, shower tray and mirrors. Less than basic for backpackers, students and adventurous couples seeking cultural experience. Not suitable if you like western hotel comforts.
