Great location in the hutongs. We had been uncertain before we went to Beijing whether we would be confident enough to find our own way about the hutongs particularly after dark but in the event we had no problems and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Our room was very comfortable and the breakfast excellent. The staff were very friendly and... More

Cute, small little hotel. Loved being in the old area of Beijing, the Houtong, felt so safe walking there even in the dark. Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms comfortable. Breakfasts very acceptable and plentiful. We found a good restuarant about 5 mins walk away on the banks of the Houhai lake. Turn right at the front door. Walk to... More

The hotel is located in a hutong area of Beijing. A 10-15 minute walk from the Beihai North metro stop on Line 6. The hotel is beautiful inside. The staff was excellent, and the breakfast was very good. Be sure to check out the puppet show! The say at was a highlight of our Beijing stay.

We visited this hotel during a weekend excision planned by our customer. We did not have any say in selection and were only told it would be memorable, and it was! I would stay there again without question. As other reviewers have said, it is very hard to find. Our driver was a Beijing native and he found it after... More

Would suggest you have the hotel details, including phone number written in Chinese as it is very difficult to find, however do not let this put you off, you could arrive by subway at Beihei North Station, and it's a 20 minute walk to the hotel. We were dropped off on the main road by a taxi driver, fortunately we... More

Very nice place hidden in the middle of the hutong and at walking distance of Behai Bei. personnel is helpful and willing to give you a nice experience. There are shows in the hotel from time to time which are quite nice. I warmly recommend the place.

Great small hotel in the somewhat (potentially) cultural shocking full Hutong experience, if new to China this is the full monty area of narrow shabby streets but yet this is the real way to experience China life. Within 400m of the hotel is a wonderful lake, where the locals exercise and swim in the morning, and it is full of... More

The communal space is pretty and the puppet theme a lovely touch. The staff speak good English and are helpful enough. Our room was on the ground floor, which may be where we went wrong - the room was small with no natural light or window access. This resulted in the room being damp with a bad fly infestation coming... More

This place if fabulous all around. LOCATION: The hutong is beautiful and full of character. And it wasn't dirty. The hotel is located about 7 mins walking to the quiet part of the lake, around which you'll find restaurants and shops. If you're a beer drinker, check out The Zone, which has a great selection of beers from around the... More
