We stayed in Michael's House for 8 days, and spent time in a Deluxe Room as well as the Emperor's Suite.
The hotel is in a vibrant part of town, with many street stalls and restaurants to be found. It is an easy 10 minute walk to Jishuitan subway station, which is on the circle route that takes you to most of the major tourist sites. It is a courtyard hotel, but a modern reproduction rather than an old original. The rooms are nicely furnished and the beds quite comfortable compared to the normal rock-hard Chinese bed. A highlight was the very personal service of the staff and Amy at the front desk was delightful. As I found out from talking to colleagues, the car and driver we hired for half a day through the hotel was quite cheap compared to other hotels. The breakfast is just ok, nothing special, but enough if you don't eat big breakfasts. It would be nice to see more fresh fruit and maybe a Chinese dish. The Emperor's Suite was very lavish and the only complaint I had was the shower, which was very hard to adjust to the right temperature and did not give a nice spray.
Overall, we really enjoyed ourselves and the hotel is a good option if you don't like the uniformity and impersonal nature of large hotels.
