We thoroughly enjoyed our four days and nights staying at this boutique hotel in Beijing's hutong neighborhood near Lake Houhai (where all the bars and nightclubs are but out of hearing distance from our hotel).

We were very satisfied with our stay. Location was very convenient, staff friedly and helpfull and overal hotel desing was nice. We loved the shadow art performance in the lobby. The kids could even go backstage after the play. Breakfast could be improved a bit and a baby chair would be helpfull for the babys breakfast dining.

The hotel was hard to reach even for the taxi driver but as soon as we saw the facade we knew we had mde a great choice. It is filled with Chinese ambiance and great hospitality. The breakfast is delicious and the staff is wonderful. Surely recommend it!!

Best place to be in Beijing. In the middle of a lively Hutong. Two full-time puppet masters are at work in the lobby almost every day. The staff is very helpful in all respects. Free bikes! (May be the hotel could bye some new bikes with comfortable and adjustable saddles?)
