Once you find this little gem of a hotel you won't forget it, really well located to explore the temples and Hutongs, a five minute walk to the nearest subway station and close enough to all the major sites to visit. We also went on the Great Wall trip arranged by the hotel which is recommended (go on trip one... More

I might be biased, but the two things I value most in a hotel are location and cleanliness. Both were excellent at this hotel. Situated in the heart of Hutongs on Second Ring, with many restaurant options around, it was all I needed. This small family owned hotel has a friendly staff and gives you a feel of safety and...

Why visit Beijing and then stay in a Western hotel? I think it's much better to experience local culture and hospitality if possible and you'll certainly get that in the Llama Temple Courtyard Hotel. The rooms aren't luxurious but they are very comfortable and clean and the air conditioning is perfect after a long day in the blistering heat of... More

We stayed in a family room called Yong He Gong. The big bed's three sides were adjacent to a wall, ideal for small children. Pros: great service, super friendly staff, with its own charm of Chinese style of decor, surrounded with inexpensive restaurants great for evening BBQ foods, and close to GuiJie the food street.

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.

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
