From even before our trip, the service at this hotel was excellent. Very responsive, friendly and helpful. The room was just what we were looking for - charming, a feeling of authenticity, clean and comfortable. There was plenty of room for our family of four. The bathroom was a bit small but had everything we needed. Though this was our first stop of our two weeks in China, even by the end, we considered the breakfast to be the best of our trip. The only downside to this hotel is its location in the middle of an alley - since we were there in November, it was a bit cold (and rainy at times), and it was pretty far to walk to get a taxi or to the subway. However, the up side of the location was seeing the "old way of life" in the Hutong - an increasingly unusual experience in a city that is losing Hutongs every year. The Hutongs that you can "tour" are not authentic anymore, so I especially appreciated being able to see a genuine up close, with the hotel's neighbors going about their daily life.
We would definitely stay here again!
