Loved this place. My Chinese wife wanted to stay in a hotel that had a traditional look and feel. It was beautiful, ornate and immaculately clean. I've read the other reviews and no, we never tried the TV and yes, the wifi was Chinese and therefor slow and filtered. We only conversed with the very helpful staff in Chinese. The... More

I arrived in Beijing past midnight and with the long drive from the airport going to the Beijing Traditional View Hotel, I really just want to lay down and sleep. Unfortunately, the persons who picked me up can't find the hotel in Juer Hutong. Take note that the taxi didn't go inside so I have to walk carrying all my... More

I booked two different price rooms for my family in July for 3 days, however when we arrived they gave us two identical rooms, when I asked the reception staff and they told me the wood in the room were different, gosh. Of course it was the same and they started to show their knowledge about the different types of... More

I wanted a hotel that was traditional Chinese so I could get the real feel of the culture. I was so excited by this place, but when I got there, I had never regretted my decision so much. Let's get the good things out of the way. The hotel is near a lot of cute shops and stores. The bathrooms... More

We had booked a nearby hotel, but on arrival, found it to be dirty and noisey, so we didn't stay, almost next door was the "Trad", it was old and small, we were tired from traveling, so we booked one night, hoping to find something better next day. We had a clean and comfortable room, also very quiet, and we... More

this hotel has changed its name to 'Traditional' as another commentator stated. This hotel is attractively decorated and the check in went smoothly and efficiently. The room was decorated in traditional style furniture. It was a bit small but okay for just a parent and daughter. The air conditioner worked well. There were no English tv channels, despite the high... More

during booking I place a special note about early check-in. All the hotels I've checked into in Asia have allowed early check in without charge. Not this one, I arrived at 2:30am and they charged me for a "good room" but I was placed in a standard room. No tea, coffee, sugar or teaspoons but kettle and cups are provided.... More

We stayed at this hotel in Feb 2013 when it was the Traditional View Hotel and I guess they changed the name because of all the bad press they've been getting! The thing is, I agree with all the negative comments, I just don't see them as negative, more just what you'd expect from traditional Hutong living! We arrived at... More

We stayed 6 nights in this hotel from 01/01/2014 until 07/01/2014. After reading other customers review, it feels as if we have been unlucky. BEWARE the hotel is currently being renovated. The room was quite small and was located just above the area where workers were drilling so the noise was constant and loud. Our room was clean but we... More
