6 years ago i visited this inn and the atmosphere was wonderfully cosmopolitan and vibrant. Now the staff was not helpful and their knowledge of English was close to zero. They had no idea what was happening in town or where there were nice eateries. I was the only foreigner in the hostel and the reworked bar area was not... More

Okay this review may be a result of having stayed at Beijing before in a better hotel so I can compare the quality. The staff here are friendly, the room is clean but that is all I can say for it. 1. It is hard to find: from Deshengmen bus station waking towards the lake, you turn right on the... More

We spent 3 nights here. The reviews are overrated for Sleepy Inn. Good thing is the location - near to the lake & a bus station. However, with poor maintenance the dorm room is dirty with dust. Some of the staffs were good when you ask for direction but if you are unlucky some of them won't border you much.

This hotel was reasonably priced, in a great location, and the staff were friendly and helpful, and spoke English well. There was free wifi, albeit slightly slow on occasion. The room was spacious, and the en-suite facilities were fine, as long as you were happy with a glass wall between the toilet and bedroom. However we had a few issues... More

For the price this is an excellent pick and I would stay here again without hesitation. The staff were super friendly. The room was clean and a good size given the price (I have stayed in rooms only big enough to fit a double bed in Beijing). And the location, right next to a very peaceful spot on the lakes... More

The staff at Sleepy Inn is what bumped this review up from three to four stars. They are incredibly kind and helpful. Pros: Location. The lakes are a lovely place to ride a bike, jog, walk, or go on a rickshaw ride by day and an exciting place to eat and go out for drinks at night. You can rent... More

The hutong and lakeside location of this hotel/hostel is great. It is a 10 minute walk to the subway. We stayed in a private room with an en suite bath. The girls at the front desk were friendly. We had a problem with the lock on our first room and they changed our room immediately and were apologetic. The bathroom... More

We had been to shanghai and xi'an and feeling rather 'cityed' out, too many people so was assuming Beijing would be exactly the same....well Sleepy inn is just that, a chilled haven away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Located just 10 minute walk from the metro you wouldn't believe you were in a city. Set beside a... More

Two friends and myself stayed in a dorm room with two bunk beds in and ensuite shower room. The room and bedding were clean and the girls that worked there were brilliant, they booked us a private taxi to the wall and were always able to help. On first look the area may seem not perfect for getting to on... More
