Below is a paraphrased copy of what I sent my credit card company after Hutong had ripped us off so badly: When we arrived at the hotel, we were assigned a horrible room, not as described in the reservation. Leaking sewer pipes overhung two separate twin beds with no window. Further, free breakfast for two was not honored, the hotel...

We stayed at the Hutong Inn for 5 horrible nights. Our room was situated between reception and the office and what we presume were other staff rooms. Conseqently, we were woken up all through the night and early hours by phones ringing and staff shouting to each other. We had a room with a private bathroom, this was probably the...

The hotel is good value for the money. Location is good but hard to find at night, especially in the rain. Can't find it b/c the taxi dropped you off too far away? Follow the signs to the Language School. It may say "Chinese Language School" and/or just "Language School". Face their doors. Look left. go to end of alley....

The hotel itself was good, the staff were helpful in helping us find the way there as its location is quite hidden from the main street. It is also not so close to the subway station (about 15 mins walk) but it's within walkable distance to the famous Nanluoguxiang and other attractions. It is a hustle and bustle outside the...

We stayed at the Beijing Hutong Culture Inn for one night, and overall it was a good place to stay for the amount we paid. We arrived earlier than check-in time, as we took an overnight train from Shanghai. We waited a bit, but they prepared our room even though check-in wasn't for another 3 hours. The staff was pretty...

So it was a little while since we stayed here,...firstly we couldn't find the place some local girls used the phone and rang them and then walked us to the place while on the phone to the inn and all they wanted in exchange was a photo how sweet! We wished we stayed over in the main hutongs amoungst everything!...

I got extremely lost on the way as I took the Airport train to Dongzhimen station and decided to walk (bad idea)... Taxi drivers don't know where it is (which I read earlier).

Hotel was very good value. It was also very well located not far from the drum tower or forbbiden palace. The only downside is that most taxi drivers won't take you directly to the hotel. The huntong streets are very narrow for cars. The area has lots of character.

“Definitely not the bottom floor!!”
 of 5 bubbles s_ctravel85, Jan 11, 2013 | Read review
“Higher floors are away from community bathroom (smell)- but you climb all the stairs. I didn't check the elevator. btw, beijing smells. After day 3 you probably won't notice it as much. Want to wake up early? Get a room facing the east. I doubt any room will be completely soundless. If that's your problem, bring ear plugs. if you snore, be kind and get a cheap mouth/snore guard. Everyone, including you, will sleep better.”
