We stayed at Templeside Deluxe Hutong House on our family trip to Beijing, with my 2 year old son. It's a great place for kids! He had many toys to play with, fish and water turtle to feed, and he loved it. The staff liked him a lot and played with him. He really enjoyed his time there, as did we.
The deluxe room was very clean, comfortable and nice.
The staff was very helpful in tips on how to get to all the tourist attractions, as well as booking our next hotel and plane tickets. We didn't take any hotel tour, we prefered to take the subway and local buses to all the attractions, which was very comfortable.
The only fault to this hotel is the location: it's a 20 minute walk to the nearest subway station, Fuchengmen, which wastes some valuable time in Beijing. Other than that, I highly recommend this hotel.
