It is not at all like any western chain hotel; expect something completely different- A traditional Chinese house converted to a nice homely small hotel. The best thing about the hotel is the very personal touch which its wonderful staff adds. Actually that is perhaps the best thing about it. Stay there if you want to experience real Beijing. You cannot find taxis to and from the hotel as as easy as you would outside a big hotel. However one could walk to the main road which is five minutes away and wait for a cab.Metro station is not too far but not too close either especially if you are carrying shopping bags. It was nice to enjoy dinner in nice and cozy 'The Bar' resturant within the hotel. The staff could help with arranging tours to different attractions but we chose to go on our own, Taxi from airport costs around 70 but I had o give more to the cab driver as he was not ready to take cab down the alley and wanted to drop us on the main road. Rooms were cozy even in the winter.
