Beijing Wohkoon Hostel-Nan Luo Gu Xiang Branch
Ranked #16 of 955 Specialty Lodging in Beijing
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Our stay at Hutongren was brilliant before we even got there. We got some great assistance via email, Chinese directions for our taxi driver, and were assured that checking in at 2am was fine!

The hotel is clean and well furnished. Our room was cozy, but there are three great communal spaces so you don't need to stay cooped up in your room. There is a sitting and dinning area by the reception, as well as a lounge, and a rooftop terrace which is great for resting in the afternoon.

The staff do an amazing job, and communicate fairly well in English. On our first day they booked tickets for us for the overnight train to Xian and the tickets were delivered to the hotel within a few hours. They also helped us out finding a local bike hire store, and they cook a great breakfast!

The area is perfect. The hotel is just off a shopping strip which really comes alive on the weekends and the evenings, but is nice a quite on the weekday mornings. There is plenty of food options around including street food and cafes (its definitely worth lining up for the hole in the wall places).

Nanlouguxiang Subway Station (Line 6) is about a 10 minute walk away and makes it easy to get anywhere you want. You might need to grab a local map from the front desk though, as this line is fairly new and isn't on the most recent addition of Lonely Planet maps.

Stayed 4 nights in the 4 bed room right opposite reception. Space is limited but ideal for families with young kids as bunker beds bring excitement to their holidays! Would suggest to fix some sort of ventilation in the attached shower. Otherwise great place to stay right next to a lovely street with hundreds of eateries.

1, it is a great place to explore "hutong". The hotel was renovated from a traditional beijing "siheyuan" . Decoration is tasteful and unique. you will like it, if you enjoy artsy stuff.
2, friendly staff who speak English. They were very helpful to make suggestions.
3, centrally located; The hotel is close to everywhere. It locates in a very safe neighborhood.
4, The room is clean, and in decent size. Surprisingly, mattress is very comfortable. I slept well during my stay.

I was really happy to stay at Hutongren Courtyard Hotel.

Make sure you have the directions given by the hotel to get show to a taxi driver to get there. The address in itself is not sufficient. When you get there, you realize the hotel is at the end of an alley, in a pedestrian hutong. This is what makes its character!

Hutongren Courtyard Hotel is a very nicely an tastefully renovated in an old house in a Beijing Hutong. The rooms are super clean, and with nice bathrooms. Rooms (some of them without windows) are generally on the small side, which is compensated by the quality of the common spaces.

Most important, everyone working in Hutongren Courtyard Hotel is super friendly, and has a good command of English. They are all helpful, reactive, and efficient. Breakfast is western style, and nice.

Hutongren was recommended in the Lonely Planet guide and I was very very happy with my stay.
GREAT location, right in the center of the hutong district, off the trendy pedestrian street NanLuoguXiang. Built within a hutong courtyard, the whole property has been remodelled, so everything inside is brand new, with modern fittings and furnishings. The roof terrace is amazing, with views out over the hutong.
It's great value for money. When on business trips to Beijing, I usually pay at least double to stay in a run-down "Business" hotel.
My friend (who is from Beijing) met me at the hotel and was amazed how a tourist like me had been able to find such a good hotel for such good value armed only with my Lonely Planet guide...
Downsides: this hotel is just off Nanluoguxiang, so it can be a bit noisy and is difficult to find. But that comes with the territory: this is a place for tourists looking to experience Beijing. If you are visiting on business and want a traditional hotel next to the train station with a large buffet breakfast and 5-star professional service, this is not the place for you!

I stayed here for three nights during my visit to Beijing. We had a wonderful stay at the hotel. Our room was located in the back, and it was very quiet and relaxing. We noticed the street noise mentioned in other reviews, but it was quite distant and barely noticable, and by about 9:30 or so every evening, it had died down to nearly nothing. We slept very well on the very soft and comfortable beds. There was a large bathtub that made for a very relaxing bath. We had three in our room (for a small fee for the 3rd person), worth noting, as I've found in China it's a little hard to find hotels that will let you stay three to a room.

The hotel had a relaxing, Zen feel, with plenty of natural light. The welcome tea was very refreshing. The location was just perfect, right off the busy hutong streets with plenty of nearby shops, bars and restaurants. We were jet lagged and looking to eat breakfast super early, but there are not too many breakfast options available in the area before around 8 am or so. The hotel's breakfast, unfortunately, doesn't start until 8 am, a little late if you're looking to get out and get started on your sightseeing first thing in the morning.

The place is a little hard to find,as mentioned in other reviews. Look out for the Starbucks sign (just the sign, the actual Starbucks is inside of a hotel). Once you find the sign, if the sign is on your left, the alley is just behind you. If the sign is on the right, the alley is just up ahead on your right. The alley is very tiny, and there's a small sign shaped like an arrow with the name of the hotel on it. Go to the end of the alley and you'll find the entrance on the left. I would definitely recommend this place.

Room Tip: Book one of the rooms in the back, as street noise and noise from the common areas will be at a mini...

We stayed at Hutongren for two nights at the beginning of July 2013 on a flying visit to Beijing.

On the run-up we emailed Seven a few times to ask for assistance with confirmations for visas, advice o day-trips and booking taxis and she always replied straight away and was extremly helpful, which was much appreciated.

We booked a transfer from the airport through the hotel as we were due to arrive late at night, Our flight was delayed by several hours but the driver was still ready and waiting for us when we finally arrived.

The hotel is quiet and peaceful but still in the perfect location, just off one of the nicest Huton shopping streets we saw in Beijing. All the main attractions are a short taxi ride away. It would be hard to find without a driver who knew the way but if you got the directions in Chinese from Seven before arrival I'm sure there would be no problem.

Our room was clean and functional, with working air con and a lovely shower, although the hot water was not working on our second day (we were offered the use of an empty room's shower instead though). As were were leaving late the day of our check-out, they allowed us to keep our bags locked in the room while we went off to do some more exploring.

We loved our stay - a home from home and Blackie the house dog is very cute and entertaining!

Thank you Seven, Eleven and Blackie for all your help and hospitality, I'm sure we'll be back one day!
