Let's be honest, Beijing is difficult city. My wife found this hotel online, and booked it. We arrived on CNY. From the airport, take a taxi, it is only about 60 RMB. Do not take the subway, because the station is too far from the hotel. Definitely do not let one of the travel companies book for you--it will be...

Thank's for giving our family a nice place to live on our vacation in the exciting city of Beijing! The staff at the hotel were lovely and helpful and we had no problems at all. All of them speak English. We had chosen this hotel because of the authentic, chinese style, and we don't were disappointed. The location of the...

Xiao Yuan is a converted traditional house with a lot of traditional features architecture, decorations, furnishing, a central courtyard and even a fish pool. This make the hotel really charming. The beds were very comfortable, nice and firm. The blankets were excellent for the cold December nights, although the heaters worked well too. The toilets were modern and in the...

Perfect location as it was a 20 min walk from the forbidden city and within walking distance from a lot of the sites. The hotel itself was clean and we loved every minute of it, we asked for some Chinese tea and it was the best tea we'd had! We are at the little cafe next door which was really...

The hotel and room itself were good; however, the bathroom situation was not. I stayed here 5 nights. I believe I was in room 206, and I can't say for the other rooms, but the bathroom was mildew-y and moldy. It was one of those showers where only half of the shower has a glass separation to the rest of...

This hotel is an excellent hotel. The way the rooms are set out around a courtyard helps give the whole hotel a lot of character. The rooms themselves are a good size and contain all the use amenities you would expect, they are clean and comfortable. They best part of the room is the large 4 poster bed which was...

Its quite an expensive place for what you get, really: decent room with a very small bathroom. My wife and I stayed 5 nights. Beijing is massive, so you are only relatively close to the central attractions - Forbidden City is a good 35-40 minute walk, the subway system is only a five minute walk away. The hotel itself is...

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...

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...

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...
