I rate this excellent because of the value you get for your money and location. Do not stay here expecting 4 or 5 star service. The little cafe is great, excellent coffee and cheap beer. The upstairs eating area is comfortable and eclectic. The hotel is located in a good area with easy access to the metro. We had the... More

This hotel generally met my expectations, the room was average size, a bit dirty - didn't look vacuumed to say the least and there was a fair bit of mould in the bathroom, but for the low price of the economy room I wasn't expecting too much. However this hotel does have great staff, all the receptionists have good English,... More

The Hotel rooms are good, quite large for the price. Very clean and comfortable. Good food to be had in the street/alley, really enjoyed our stay. We walked from... More

Nice little hotel in a very central location. It's close to the metro, one stop away from the bell tower area which has many nice bars and restaurants. Also close to the forbidden city and it's located in an atmospheric hutong. The room we had was not big, but very clean and with an excellent airco. The staff organised a... More

We were in double and twin rooms, cozy, clean, with some extra like slippers, Shampoo and Shower Gel. Daily change of towels. Very well located in a hutong in the downtown area. Metro stop just a few steps. Western breakfast at affordable price. Recreational areas with interesting decor.

Lovely hostel with small sunny patio, nice cafe area and good bar joined on. We loved the authentic hutong location - old style alley where local people live. Spent Y900 - £90 in western district tepanyaki restaurant one night then next night got better food and great beer in a local restaurant for Y160 - £4 each. The hostel is... More

The hotel has standard but clean rooms. The staff is very nice and helpful. The hotel's proximity to Dongsi subway station makes it a great starting place for tours through Beijing. Go and buy a Yikatong and charge it with not more than Y100. It's great to use the subway with this IC card (it's like London's Oyster card)
