Below is a paraphrased copy of what I sent my credit card company after Hutong had ripped us off so badly: When we arrived at the hotel, we were assigned a horrible room, not as described in the reservation. Leaking sewer pipes overhung two separate twin beds with no window. Further, free breakfast for two was not honored, the hotel... More

We stayed at the Hutong Inn for 5 horrible nights. Our room was situated between reception and the office and what we presume were other staff rooms. Conseqently, we were woken up all through the night and early hours by phones ringing and staff shouting to each other. We had a room with a private bathroom, this was probably the... More

The hotel is good value for the money. Location is good but hard to find at night, especially in the rain. Can't find it b/c the taxi dropped you off too far away? Follow the signs to the Language School. It may say "Chinese Language School" and/or just "Language School". Face their doors. Look left. go to end of alley.... More

The hotel is clean, cheap and has a good location. Some rooms doesn't have any windows though.. If you travel low budget i can recommend this hotel. To find this hotel is not really easy though. Make you sure have a chinese address with you to show to the taxi driver.

The staff were very very helpful, with personality enough not feel like you were talking to automatons The bar - great view - perfect for the fireworks The room - a little rough (i.e towels and sheets perfectly clean laundered but a bit frayed) but clean and everything you could possibly want on hand Perfect location once you get there...

The hotel itself was good, the staff were helpful in helping us find the way there as its location is quite hidden from the main street. It is also not so close to the subway station (about 15 mins walk) but it's within walkable distance to the famous Nanluoguxiang and other attractions. It is a hustle and bustle outside the... More

We stayed at the Beijing Hutong Culture Inn for one night, and overall it was a good place to stay for the amount we paid. We arrived earlier than check-in time, as we took an overnight train from Shanghai. We waited a bit, but they prepared our room even though check-in wasn't for another 3 hours. The staff was pretty... More

I got extremely lost on the way as I took the Airport train to Dongzhimen station and decided to walk (bad idea)... Taxi drivers don't know where it is (which I read earlier). I finally got there after someone gave me directions on a bus. Best advice would be to transfer at Dongzhimen and go to Andingmen station and walk... More
