Off the usual tourist route this hotel provides a rare experience. Based within the local community you get a glimpse of life you wouldn't see otherwise. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Food is OK. Puppet theatre show whilst only lasting 10 minutes or so is free and well worth seeing. Rooms are well appointed but a bit on the... More

This hotel was well-appointed and very comfortable with a lovely relaxing ambience. The staff were super with excellent English skills and a most gracious manner about them. The shadow show was entertaining, especially to the many children staying there with their parents. Best experience in 16 days in China.

This is a fascinating hotel in a Beijing hutong. Right in the middle of things, with many restaurants and interesting places nearby. Staff very pleasant and helpful (and carry cases to first floor rooms - no lift). Room a bit small, but only to be expected in the confines of traditional Beijing housing. Hotel interior very impressive. Air conditioning, comfortable... More

This hotel was our first stop on our trip around China and it was a great place to get started. The staff were so helpful (especially John and Maggie) and on several occasions offered to help book trips or restaurants for us - definitely helped put us at ease on our first stay in China. Our room was clean and... More

We had our room on the first floor so we didn´t have great view but otherwise the room was excellent. We enjoyed the best breakfast during our trip to Beijing. Staff was really helpful and explained us alot about the shadow art performance and chinese culture.

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.
