I stayed here for a week as part of a university study trip and everyone has loved it. The cafe downstairs makes the most amazing coffees and all of the staff are so friendly and helpful. One of the guys even took a bus with us when our transport fell through to make sure we got to the right place... More

The hotel was in a great location on one of Beijing's many hutongs. The staff were always polite and friendly and the public spaces were very creative and homely. The rooms were basic, but fine for just a weeks stay and good value for money. I would say the air conditioning needs an update though, it didn't work very well.... More

This hotel is located in Lisha hutong just off Dongsi Street and is very close to the important sights in Beijing. it is also handily on the airport side of the city. We stayed four nights which, with the service charge, cost a very reasonable 1196 yuan. Our room was on the second floor up two short flights of stairs... More

Located a short walk from the metro, this hotel is in a great spot. A large number of the main tourist sites are within a half hour walk and with the metro you can get to most places easily.

Eventhough the name is 161 hotel, this place is so much more a hostel. But it's by far one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in! Good: The cafe. Great coffee, good sandwiches etc. Awesome location. You can walk to forbidden city in 30 mins. Close to subway. Cheap. Bad: Got a room in the basement. Very cold.... More

We were very happy with the location in a small but bustling street 5 mins walk from Dongsi subway station and a 25 minute walk from Tiananmen Square and Forbidden palace. There is a Hypermarket next to one of the exits from the subway. We were in a twin en-suite room on the 3rd floor near the back of the... More

It is in a alley called Li Shi Hu Tong,near Wangfujing,easy find. Clean and with a bar,but I think in the same alley the Taste bar is better. It is cheap ,whatever you care about other things? by the way , people are friendly.
