This was an experience that I really enjoyed. A traditional Chinese style hotel in a small Hutong, it was loaded with charm. The room was basic, but clean with the downside being no safe for your valuables such as cash and passports. The room was leaved each day. The cafe was cosy and attractive with upstairs couches seating and bean... More

The hotel is in a good location. The frontdesk staff is very helpful and friendly. The room is very basic and small. The matress is too hard. The bathroom shower is ok. The breakfast is not included in the room rate and it is expensive! If you want a budget hotel go for it.

We initially booked for 3 nights and then extended for the whole week. The staff are incredible, nothing is a problem and their English is great. We stayed in the double room and then were moved to one of their business rooms. Both were wonderful and super clean. The location couldn't be better. Just a short tube ride to all... More

We were looking for a nice place to stay after a 21day trekking through Mongolia. And we found it! The hotel offers practical, clean rooms, a lovely hot shower en a cosy coffee corner with the best coffee in Beijing. Good value for money. Friendly staff that tries to help you the best way they can.

This hotel was brilliant. We have just stayed there for eight nights. The rooms were clean when we arrived, beds comfortable, no English speaking TV but there was a USB connection to the TV so we could watch movies off of our hard drive. Excellent location. Two minute walk from Dongsi metro station and basically in the city centre. There... More

Really nice place and staff. Clean, near the metro and easy to access to the main attractions in Beijing. I would love to go back to Beijing at some point and we would definitely stay here again. Very recommended and good value-price.
