My boyfriend and I wanted to experience real Beijing by staying in Hutongs more so than a hotel and we really are glad we did. The people who run it/ are on reception are very very friendly and speak good English. The place has a great feel from the moment you walk in. Its very clean and very quiet so... More

Although one notable down-side of our room was a lack of windows this was made up for by the hotel's cleanliness, quiet but central location and rooftop terrace, where we went for some of our meals and to relax. I found the service consistently efficient and helpful despite my almost non-existent Chinese - most of the front desk staff could... More

My wife and two kids (ages 8 and 14) and I stayed for three nights in Room 208: a king size bed; a single bed; and the staff brought in a portable bed as well. The room had blackout curtains, so we could sleep as late as we wanted; and down the hall was their rooftop restaurant where we ate... More

My husband and I stayed here. This was our first hotel in China and would not change the fact that we stayed in this hotel. Loved the location, your with the locals, the decor, the staff was very nice and helpful. Breakfast was nice. The bathroom did smell but was doable.

We picked Hutong over " Western " hotel.. because this is CHINA right? and we wanted to experience what its actually like, not just being holed up in a Western styled chain motel. This place is family run, and has that homely feel about it - the 3 girls on the reception counter ( Melissa, Yuki ) all spoke English... More

We planned to stay here for 2 nights to get a better Beijing hutong experience, but the place has some real issues they need to address, and we ended up staying only 1 night. The major problem was black mold and the accompanying smell in the bathrooms of both of our rooms 207 & 208 (see photos) and the strong... More

Nice courtyard hotel in Lishi Hutong. Nice and helpful staff with good English skils. Okey and quiet room for nice price. Nice to stay in one of the many old hutong of Beijing. Was only having the breakfeast in the restaurant, standard British. I can recommend this place for who wants a cheap place with a good location.

This hotel is a little gem, with friendly English-speaking staff and a location surrounded by cheap, convenient eating places. Exploring the local hutongs is a great way to spend an afternoon, and it's a relatively brief walk to the greater sophistication of the Wangfujing shopping strip. Tours to the main sites of interest can be booked at the hotel.

Our family of 2 adults and 2 children (11yrs) stayed for 4 days here and loved it! The reception staff were great and spoke good English- very friendly and helpful with our questions. Great location for walking to Forbidden City and shopping street (Wangfujing). In the middle of Lishi Hutong- a typical living area. Our apartment was lovely- and although... More
