I had booked this place before noticing a lot of the bad reviews and was a bit worried. Especially when my taxi driver had no idea where the place was and even called with the number provided which apparently didn't work.
Thanks to some of the photos posted, I was able to recognize it and checked in. It's certainly quirky, but not at all horrible like other guests have posted. My room was clean, the a/c worked, the bathroom was actually really cool with bright red tile and a neat bathtub. Again, everything was clean.
I thought that for the price and considering it's proximity to some of the major Beijing tourist attractions, shopping, and restaurants, it was beyond adequate. I mean, if you pay 40 USD or 35 Euro for a hotel in other parts of the world, what are you expecting?
Staff speak limited English, but enough to us to understand each other, and with many of the signs in Chinese, it's evident to me that they are not catering to foreigners. If you are looking for that experience, this is probably not the place for you.
I did sense that someone must have been smoking in a room next time to mine one of the nights I stayed there and you could certainly hear some noises, but it wasn't a late night crowd and it wasn't horrible either.
I thought that the décor was super interesting and I felt safe there and with the location. The size of the room was also more than adequate and had lots of neat areas to put to your luggage out of the way. Plasma screen tv, electric tea kettle with tea, and free wifi rounded out the place. Again, if you are looking for something that caterers Western tourists, this is likely not the place for you, but not because the rooms aren't okay. They are. I stayed in room 107, fyi, which is on the main floor when you walk in.
The lobby also arranges tours and can sell you cameras.
