This is a lovely hotel, situated in an interesting part of Beijing in a Hutong (alley). It is incredibly quiet. The room is beautifully furnished and I would love to take the bathroom home: it is much better than mine! The attention to detail is amazing. The hotel itself has free shadow puppet performances which are stunning. This does encourage... More

This hotel is clean and lovely inside, and the staff is wonderful. They speak just enough English. It's small and is located in a hutong, so it is not easy to find. But well worth it. I wish we hadn't missed the show. They had other classes for kids on the weekend as well. They offer a very nice breakfast... More

Helpful staff. They provided bottled water on request without hesitation. Free shadow art performance helps to spread the word to keep this art alive. We are also invited to attend the mid - autumn festival celebration on the eve. However, we have to give it a miss as we are flying off in the afternoon. Highly recommended stay to experience...

So glad we had a tour guide drop us off at the hotel. It was very challenging for even them to find. Once we arrived though it was fantastic. It's a hidden gem in a protected part of the city. Real people and living. Staff is helpful, knowledgable and friendly. Room was very clean and a mix of old and... More

The hotel is perfectly located in the Hutong area, a 5 min walk to north lakes where you can find plenty of bars and restaurants. The hotel architecture and design are lovely and you can see and feel Chinese art and culture all around it. Staff is very friendly and breakfast was fine. I would appreciate to have had a... More

Highly recommended. The staff were all great, welcoming and attentive to the need of us. Wonderful experience. However, it is not easy to get to the hotel as most of the taxi would refuse to go into the narrow street and you will find yourself have to walk at least 5 to 10 minutes out to a street.

We enjoyed our stay here. The rooms feel authentic with interesting furniture and finishes. They provide a nice welcome basket. The included breakfast is fun; lots of Chinese and western-style offerings. Even great coffee. Love the hutong neighborhood full of street activity. We liked walking to the nearby lakeside and eating dinner in restaurants there that were filled with people... More

As our taxi approached the hotel, my husband's confidence wavered. What had I booked us into? The neighbourhood is determinedly pre-modern. This actually became part of the charm as we wandered around the lanes and lakes. The room was blissfully cool and had everything we needed. Thankfully, that did not need to include the two complimentary respirators (proper rubber masks... More

The hotel is in one of the hutong areas of the city which is a really fascinating area of old Beijing. The hotel was pretty good but needed a new stair carpet. The staff were terrific. We had a small room with the bed inaccessible from three sides. However, the breakfast was good and general facilities fine.
