“good value in central Beijing”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

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.

Not a normal hotel that you normally expect to find in China, no modern facilities in room, only one English Channel to watch (not a great issue for me). Great location as it is right in the preserved old Beijing area and plenty of Chinese restaurants here, although most restaurants here don't understand or speak English. If you want cheap accommodation in Beijing and want to experience something unique, this hotel would be a good choice. If you want lixurious room, mini bar, and fancy breakfast, then stay away.

I've stayed in this hotel for 5 nights with my boyfriend. We had a very good time in Beijing and the hotel was good. Our room was a little bit small, and there was no cabine or curtin in the bathroom for the shower, so the entire bathroom went wet when we showered. That are the only 2 things we did not reaaaaaally like. The beds were good, little bit hard but good. The curtins were cleaned once during our stay. We got new towels every day, the staff spoke a little bit English during the check-in and check-out. We did not have to pay a deposit. The restaurant looked okay, but they serve only Chinese food, so we didn't eat there. The location of the hotel is also very good, near the metrostation that brings you to highlights of the city in about 10 minutes. Around the hotel are very much restaurants, and there is a bakery at the corner of the street with a lot of bread and pastries (Which we as Europeans prefered to eat in the morning instead of noodles).

We will go back here if we go to Beijing again in the future.

Ok as a hotel: Good quality, clean, good location close to the centre and the metro

It has no real common room, no place to relax with the rest of the group

I spent one month in Beijing and the entire stay was spent at Huguosi Hotel. It was an excellent stay. The rooms were clean and spacious, I loved the glassed-in shower area, and it had consistent internet access. Xicheng district is near the music district and very close to parks. It is walking distance to some great shopping. The alley on which it is located is quite lively in the evenings in the summertime, and the folks were all very friendly and fun to visit with. (Do not assume that all Chinese speak English!! Most do not, so learn some Mandarine before you go. It will serve you well.) I suggest you carry the Huguosi Hotel address card with you when taking a cab as it will be helpful to your cab driver. When I go back to Beijing, I would definitely choose the Huguosi Hotel again.

Room Tip: Ask to view several rooms before accepting the one you want.

Very good location. By walking, you can reach the metro station called "Pinganli" in 30 seconds, or the lake area where bars are located in 20 mins through the alleys. There are some groceries and convenient stores around where you can buy fruits, water and other foodstuff. The street where this hotel is located has many restaurants of traditional Beijing food and snacks.

Room is spacious, cleanliness ok. Surprising is that it has more than enough provisions including water dispenser for hot and cold water, coffee maker (see pics), thin TV, hair dryer, usual toiletries, towels, disposable slippers. Air conditioner for both cool air and hot air functions well. Bed comfortable (but as usual overall in China, bed is rather hard as compared with other western countries). The decor has Chinese traditional style. Each room has its own poem written on the door.

Staff fine. The receptionist (at least one girl I heard) can speak English well.

Price great. I booked on Citrip website for RMB230 per night (one big bed standard room for 2 persons). It's not easy to have such a room of such standard in Beijing .

Just three imperfections: 1) Shower and toilet is at the same place. There's no curtain inside the toilet room and you will get water splashed around after showering. 2) The curtains of the bedroom is light in colour. So it's not so sun-block and you may have to wear an eye mask if you wish to continue to sleep after 7am or so. 3) Lighting inside the room is rather dim.
