My husband and I loved Michael's house. Michael himself is a wonderful host and helped us figure out how to best spend our 4 days in Beijing. The staff are gracious and friendly, any help we needed was available immediately. They arranged a wonderful trip for us to the Great Wall for an extremely low price (only 1 other person in a newish van, and we had our own driver and tour guide for 3 people).
Michael's House itself is a refurbished authentic multi-generational Beijing home, and staying there made us feel like we were living in Beijing. The ensuite rooms are quite large, with a comfortable sofa and flat-screen TV (with HBO) in the living room area, and a large extremely comfortable bed in the bedroom area. The bathroom shower was comfortably large as well. The whole place is beautifully decorated and was spotlessly clean. It looks just like the photos on the website, but everything is larger in real life than it looks in the photos, which is great.
The neighborhood location is excellent, very close to the subway, which we took everywhere, and lots of access to taxis nearby as well. The nearby main street hosts a sort of flea market each evening, where local people shop to purchase low-priced items. My husband and I strolled through each evening and felt like part of the neighborhood.
There are lots of good quality moderately-priced restaurants within walking distance, and with a bit of a longer walk, there are some fabulous (though more expensive) restaurants on the banks of the human-made "seas". The breakfast at Michael's House is excellent also.
I would never stay in a typical western-type 5-star hotel in Beijing. The only place I'd ever stay would be Michael's House.
