Ximen is a great area to use as a base. I traveled around town for three days. The street under my window was always busy but the only noise was a band setup in the late morning. This is a young and trendy area of town and the hotel fits the area. European style rooms. The split bathroom and common sink would make it easy to travel with a loved one of friends. The bar and morning breakfast was great. Such a diverse hotel in and equally diverse area. A great place IMO.
