I stayed in the "Sky Heart" room on my first stay in Beijing and at Hutongren. This is a gem of a hotel - beautiful, clean, stylish, great location, fast wireless internet in the room, really plush towels and a soft bed, really friendly and helpful staff, and so reasonably priced. The only problems were that the bathroom in the room is a bit stinky - a sort of sewage smell that I smelled elsewhere on the street in Beijing, and I think must be related to the age of the building. The Sky Heart room is right off of the tiny alleyway, across from a cafe, so the head of your bed is literally a couple feet from the people sitting outside at the cafe. Its very scenic, but I found it noisy when I had an early bedtime due to jet lag, and was woken up by people walking by in the middle of the night.
I would absolutely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone, but would probably choose a room off the courtyard rather than the street next time, and hope that the bathroom issue isn't a problem in the other rooms.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestled in a very small, easily-overlooked side alley north of storied Xiao Ju’er Hutong, this charming little tea-theme hotel offers a quiet, well-lit retreat from the bustle of the middle of everything. A handful of rooms-double from RMB 600 and single from RMB 480 – surround a stone-floored atrium filled with plants, natural light, books in various languages, wi-fi and a small bar. All rooms are equipped with super comfortable King Koil Mattresses, traditional furniture, air conditioners and under-ground heating. You will be warmly welcomed by the lovely staff and little Blackie. The unique Chinese Tea experience (free Tea classes are given everyday by reservation in advance), relative peace and quiet you’ll find here after a long day is worth it. ... more less
