We had an absolutely lovely time staying at Michael's House. Not only are the rooms clean and spacious but the staff are just so wonderful. When we left we were truly sad to say goodbye to them! They helped us to organize a private car for a trip to the Great Wall, and also were really flexible in getting us a different room when there was some construction noise outside. Really great people. Our trip would not have been as complete without a stay at Michael's House.

My family and I stayed here for 3 days - just missing the recent snowstorm - and found it a delightful place to stay. After the frenetic sightseeing around the city (made even more busy by the fact that we have two young blonde daughters), we found Michael's House to be the perfect setting to rest and chill out. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly and went out of their way to accommodate our requests. It was lovely to stay in a hutong and felt part of the vibe in the evenings when we ate the nearby street food or ate at the local Chinese restaurant. I highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed for 3 nights in this extremely cosy and beautiful Hutong style place. We had the Empress Suite which was very large and extremely tastefully decorated in traditional Chinese fashion making our stay even more special. The staff ( Amy ,Caroline and Sophie) were excellent attending to every little detail of ours.
Highly recommended for couples and families alike.

My second stay at Michaels House in the last 2 months, it's location may not be quite as close to central Beijing as the Hutong Courtyard hotels but it has such a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere it's worth paying for a few short Taxi journeys to get to the must see tourist attracions in central Beijing. Staff are great, rooms are generous sizes & spotless. Breakfast is good, perhaps the only area they fall down in is the lack of a reastaurant but that said within 5 minutes you can walk to local eateries both Chinese and Western. I plan to stay again next time I'm passing through Beijing.

Stayed 5 days at Michael's and it was great.
The room was big enough for us, good amenities and nice breakfast all of that for a bargain.
Mostly it was the staff who did it for us. We didn't spoke a word of chinese so having english speaking staff was a must, they helped us so much with everything even how to avoid scams.
This place is great, it has a nice atmosphere and they made our stay pleasant and easy.
I know I'll go back there next time in Beijing.

The staff at Micheal's house went above and beyond! They let leave our bags for 2 nights while we traveled via train to Xian, let us use the staff shower before we left and checked us in early with free upgrade when we returned from Xian (ready for a real bed and shower).

Amy is amazing. She and I exchanged about 12 emails and helped me book when Hotels.com showed they were sold out, she booked overnight trains for 4 people both ways, and then bought our Arocbatic Show tickets.

They put out the wonderful breakfast early for us the day we left for the wall and answered all our questions with a smile. Micheals House really felt like home, so clean, comfotable and cozy home like atmosphere. We hated leaving!!!

My sister and I stayed for three nights in a standard room, that was bright and clean, with supremely comfortable beds. We were greeted warmly by two of the young, intelligent girls who act as hostesses. They all have good English skills, are eager to assist in any way necessary, and do so with care. We were "high maintenance" guests, and they responded to our many needs (use of their computer, extra water, phone calls, help with taxis, meals, advice, and other sundry requests) with good grace and intelligence. We were happy with our stay and thrilled with the excellent service! We highly recommend Michael's Place! (The owner's wife was there, a lovely helpful woman who went out of her way to accommodate us, even driving us to a local restaurant and facilitating service from a non-English speaking waitress. We appreciated this and other courtesies willingly extended to us.)

Room Tip: The standard room we were in was ideal for us, as it was close to the courtyard, front desk and brea...
