Amazingly helpful staff, going above and beyond in person and by phone. Rooms were spotlessly clean and had very spacious bathrooms and showers. Nice entertainment for kids and it was near a very nice park and restaurant area. Highly recommended.

In this narrow hutong you would never imagine to find this incredible design hotel. The staffs are excellent, especially the young man that helped us late at night for check in, he gave excellent tips and wrote us helpful notes in Chinese to hand to people. During the stay, we were surprised they have complementary shadow art show, and painting... More

Lovely little place in the backstreets (Hutong) of old Beijing. Located walking distance to subway and bar/restaurant and lakeside. No restaurant on site apart from BF, rooms small if you don't upgrade (which we did) The staff were extremely helpful, exceptionally Dave. I recommend the this place if you don't want a stock standard hotel experience, even though your taxi... More

There are hundreds if not thousands of hotels in Beijing, so this is a place you go when you want to get off the beaten path. The hotel is located in a hutong, which is basically a maze of alleys representative of old-time Beijing. In the big picture, it's a fairly central location, near BeiHai park, and within walking distance... More

Dear tinadam, Thank you for writing an overall positive review and inform fellow trip advisor users, it is much appreciated. I feel highly approved when reading your compliments, while indeed, we are nothing in common with those 'cookie cutter brand hotels' due to our well-preserved local architectural style, dedicated and professional butler team, and fruitful cultural background. Yet still, you... More
