A clean, well-kept hotel just west of the lakes in the historic central part of Beijing. The Qianhai Lake restaurant/entertainment area is about a 20 minute walk along a busy hutong/alley. The Pinganli subway station is 1/2 block away. Many taxis on the main road nearby, though it was hard to find one to get back to the hotel late at night. Facilities are not brand new, but in good shape. Friendly staff. There was always someone at the front desk who spoke good English. An English-speaking tour desk in the lobby during the daytime can book tours to places like the Great Wall. Twin room with bath and breakfast was 340 RMB in Nov 2012. The breakfast was fairly simple, but if you get tired of that, there is a good bakery-cafe a few doors away. Free wifi throughout the hotel.
