A great little hotel in the Hutongs area. Good value. Small rooms. Clean. Staff were very friendly. Handy location for the tube. Lots of places to eat nearby and just around the corner from the drum and bell towers. Ideal for a night or two.

For those on a budget, this hotel is good. It is located in the old area of Beijing, but there is a train station just down the road, so its easy to get around. The rooms are quite basic, and a little small. There are plenty of little interesting places around the lane ways to explore. Overall, not a bad... More

I've stayed at hutong inn many timmes over the last ten years It is centrally located in active hutong with increasing hip places to eat and drink. Bad: prices have risen without any increase of service nor upkeep in rooms. Stay here but remember it is getting too pricey to really to recommend

I enjoyed my stay here. The bathroom and beds were very clean. Don't expect a lot, if you're traveling for the sake of seeing things and not for the sake of luxury, then this is the place for you. It has very good location to many shops, subway and within walking distance to a shopping district. Very close to many... More

was going to give this place 2-3 stars, but then the ordeal of checking out earned them only 1. Many of the rooms are windowless and the smell of smoke permeates the walls. The heat barely works, so it's cold at night. The tours in the lobby are overpriced (especially if you don't want compulsory shopping stops), so I'm glad... More

This is a review for a 7 day stay in October 2014. I thought the hotel was clean with comfortable bed/bedding. Bathroom was acceptable although I would have liked a western bathroom with a bathtub. It's about 5 minutes of walk to subway line #2 which is three stops away from the airport train. On the other hand, it's kind... More

I hate to say it,But though the location is really good, This place is really sketchy. The staff do a great job making this place have a bad vibe to it. I can testify that what other people have said is true. Another reviewer stated that he had been taken by a tea scam. The same thing happened to us,... More

Overall, this was a good wee place to stay in. We spent a week here when we 1st arrived in China. To begin with, it wasn't easy to find so if you're unsure on how to get there, get the subway to Guloudajie station on line 2, take exit G which is also sign posted for line 8 transfer. When... More

The hotel was a bit tattered but the room was clean and adequate. The AC seemed to operate on the cool side but was manageable. I had been to Beijing before and did not have to depend on the staff for information which was probably a good thing as I did have a bit of a problem communicating with them.... More
