There is no better way to learn about the Hutong people and live like a real Beijinger than to stay in the Hutong! Everyday I was walking amongst real Beijingers, buying boazi fresh from the steamer in the morning, shopping at the neighborhood grocery, and eating with the locals at dinner. This hotel is really, really nice for being in... More

The hotel has character--a hutong quality of small, nicely decorated rooms with an attractive central countyard. My room had about 2 meters of space on the side of the bed where a small desk was located. There was no space for a clothing closet. The western style bathroom was a comfortable size. The WiFi worked OK with the typical chinese... More

Bought the rm thru Hotels.com. for 3 nights - June 27-30. It was our destination as we arrived to Beijing. Close to subway & T. Sq. Upon driving to the Hutonng area, we thought we were going into a doubtful neighborhood since there were shirtless men sitting around drinking beer and smoking on a dusty road with somewhat dilapidated housing...

I'd had a recommendation for a boutique hotel in a Beijing hutong, but ended up getting this one booked instead by family living in China (available through their travel agency). Historical building with traditional decor and design. The rooms are located facing a common courtyard (traditional housing design). They are quite small (I had one of the "noble court" rooms...

Elite Hutong is a traditional courtyard residence, very well located, walk distance to the Theater, Tiananmen Square, and Forbidden City and also about 5mins walk to the Hepingmen Metro station. The neighborhood is quite nice (Hutong’s) and interesting but we felt safe. It is an authentic Hutong atmosphere. We were there went it got cold (frost, rain and snow) it... More

We stayed here from 18th - 21st May, 2012 and have to agree with everything JS&KB,Hong Kong said. It was all very accurate. We arrived in Beijin from Shanghai by train and had the name and address written in Chinese, though the taxi driver didn't know where it was. He pulled over and made a phone call to the Elite...

We stayed for 5 nights towards the end of May 2012 for an extended weekend sightseeing in Beijing. This is quite a difficult review to write as there were quite a few things that were not quite right, but we both really quite liked the place and would happily stay again. So please read through and make your own decisions....... More
