I stayed in Hulu Hotel for one night, and I wish I could have stayed longer! I knew I wanted to stay in a nice hotel for my last night in Beijing, just so I could relax by myself, and I sure was treated well! I jokingly put on the request form while booking that I would love a bag of M&M's on arrival, and on the night of arriving, there they were! Then while I was signing in, they had a cat just relaxing in the sun, having what seemed like the time of his life, which was exactly like my experience there. They feed you some pretty legit breakfast too! (refer to photo) They also had a fuzzy TV signal, so they gave me free access to bucket loads of movies and TV series.
Hulu is basically a good quality Chinese-inspired hotel, with a very nice ambiance.
Also, they're just generally nice people.This was because, I was leaving from the hotel to the airport after I checked out, and I'd only flown international once (on the way to China), so I didn't fully understand the checking in time frame. Basically, by the time I left the hotel, I was stressing and not sure if I'd make it. They offered me some lunch to take away, call a taxi, and told me the quickest route to get to the subway to the airport. Also an affirming 'you'll make it', which really helps in those situations.
So cheers Hulu! I will definitely come back to you if I go to Beijing again.
