I slept in this hotel/guesthouse for 5 nights and found it comfortable. The position is perfect, 2 minutes walking to the subway and in a quiet alley of a hutong neighborhood with many small restaurants and bars. The Bell and Drum towers are in walking distance. About the rooms, if you are familiar with the far east guesthouse standard, the... More

Traveling from Korea we notice many Americans and other "laowai" from different countries use this hotel,main reason because it is a unexpensive place to stay a few nights. While in beijing me and my friends stayed here 14 nights. We liked the location but not anymore than the location. The staff did not speak korean ,obviously, but did speak decent... More

We loved this hotel. It is in a great location - close to major tourist sites, easy access to the Metro, and it was great fun to be in a hutong. There are many good restaurants nearby on the main street around the corner. It is clean and basic. The photo of the rooms they post are accurate. The staff... More

Stayed for 4 nights, got a room in basement(?) brick wall otuside our window- but made me actually happy because I didn't have to be worried about getting robbed in this neighbourhood. Rooms were ok, cleaned very day, bit dumpy and stinky in the air, bathroom could be renewed, couldn't flush toilet paper in the toilet and had to wait... More

The room is small and always stinky. There's no window in the room . The sheets are dirty and first day we didn't have towels until 6 pm. They have wi fi in rooms but that's just the name. Wifi doesn't work properly. Workers speak English but can discuss you in front of you in Chinese.

Loved our stay here. Booked the rooms through ctrips.com. The taxi driver had trouble finding the location initially but was able to locate it after a call to the front desk. A 200RMB deposit is required. The room is small, showing age, but totally functional, especially for the price paid. The shower was hot, basic toiletries are provided, slippers and... More

I stayed in Hutong Inn only one night. Luckily for me! The room was very small with unpleasent smell inside. Bathroom was small as well and not so clean as it should be. The hotel staff was rather helpful and speaking English. The bigest advantage of the hotel is its location, not so far from the subway - approx. 5... More

Considering the price you pay, I think this is quite a reasonable hotel. In terms of English standard, it's more like Premier Inn than Holiday Inn, but none the less adequate. Yes the bathroom is a wet room, and the bed is hard, but I went to my friend's flat and found that they had the same type of bed... More

Overall, I can't really fault this place, considering the price paid. Its not the Ritz by any means, but its certainly quite functional for sure. The best thing about the place is the surrounding neigborhood. Its a very cool unrestored "Hutong" area with all sorts of interesting back streets that you can spend hours just walking around. Don't stay here... More
