I booked this hotel online at Hanting. At Bejing Capital Airport I took the Beijing Capital Airport Shuttle Bus (Line 2) which cost 16CNY and went all the way to the other end at the final stop (Xidan). The bus was the old type and the journey took an hour. I completed the final leg (very close by) using a car. The hotel is in a quiet old style road, there are some local shops and restaurant. The whole road is not modernised. The reception staff was helpful but no one could speak English. Hanting does not take credit card either so you have to pay by cash. The rooms are set in a square formation with a court yard in the middle which was very good for sunning yourself as there are garden tables and chairs (if you don't mind people looking). The room comfort that I was allocated was reasonable and clean. There was no good view out of the windows. The location was very quiet. Outside of my window I could see an old rusted roof. The bonus was that there were quite a few local restaurants at very reasonable prices within 50m. The local people eat there and there was an absence of tourists except those staying at the hotel , of course. Again no one could speak English and the menu was in Chinese only. There was a very good breakfast place at very cheap prices (part of a chain) just 50 m to the right of the hotel as you walk out of the reception. I ate there every morning. For fresh fruits there was a local shop too. From the hotel it takes about 10 mins to walk to any of the three metro stations, so it is very convenient.
