We stayed at 161 for four nights. Rooms are well appointed with modern facilities. Interesting décor throughout. Staff spoke good English and was quite helpful with tours, taxis and tips. 161 is in the old hutongs surrounded by many restaurants and shops, but a bit way from the noisier roads and traffic. Pretty quiet for being in the old city,... More

Very comfortable little hotel in the heart of a Dongcheng Hutong. The hotel is in a great location, close to subway station. There is a tasty and cheap breakfast available, great for eating quickly on your way out the door. The staff are also very friendly and knowledgeable about what to do in the city and how to get around.... More

I spent one night here with my mum in May. Its in the old part of Beijing, offering interesting streets to walk around and lots of places to eat. I liked the history and authenticity of this area and preferred it to Wangfujing. The hotel itself was nice and the staff were friendly and helpful and spoke pretty good english.... More

Situated in a narrow alley makes this a little difficult for taxis or cars to get right to the door (we had a 50% success rate) so may this isn't recommended if you have lots of heavy bags. But in every other respect this is a fabulous place to stay. Rather than a bland hotel room this is a modernised... More

Pros -Location (5/6 min walk to Ping'anli station line 4, take Exit G). You could walk to The Forbidden city, which would take you around 40 min or so. - Restaurants around the location are often the cheapest, and you would be spoilt for choices. If you are after the 'ambiance' this location is not for you. - Air-conditioned rooms... More

Just got back from spending 5 nights at this hotel. We were a bit surprised when we had to walk up a busy hutong to the hotel, but the hotel turned out to be a hidden gem. The staff are really helpful and speak excellent English. They organised the airport shuttle to pick us up at the airport and also... More

I booked this online as they were the only hotel that answered my email and English queries. Well i arranged the airport pick up even though I knew it was expensive ie £30 for 3 people and on the tube it would be maybe £12 or something. But after a long flight with a 5 year old I thought it... More

After staying in a very modern hotel chain in Shanghai, I was so pleased to transition to this small and cozy boutique hotel in Beijing. It has the feel of a bed and breakfast and the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The hutong (side alley street) that the hotel is on is definitely not fancy, but busy and colorful.... More

I stayed in its Standard Room for 5 nights. And I must say that the hotel is beyond my expectations with helpful reception, excellent free Wifi and of course, nice and cosy room for solo traveller like me. Also, this beautiful hotel is located in one of the Beijing hutongs, whereby you would get to see more of the everyday... More
