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

Very weird/sketchy and impolite. Room size... Very small. Not enough space for big luggage. Bed.... Decent but a little hard. Cleanliness... Poor, not clean / housekeeping will try to avoid cleaning your room to... More

I booked a room through the hotel website. The lady at the desk (who spoke adequate English) was not aware of my reservation and even asked if breakfast was included. Their website states that rooms come with breakfast. But one look at the breakfast and I was not impressed. I skipped it each day. The location is good, the WIFI... More

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

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
