I agree with all the positives in the other reviews. We stayed there five nights in early October and then two nights at the end of the month when Hurricane Sandy delayed our flight home.
This is not an ordinary tourist hotel and it's definitely not in a touristy section. It's at the end of a hutong which is off another hutong which is off a third hutong! Read about hutongs and make sure you know what that means. And be prepared that cars can't go up to the front door -- you have to get your own luggage down the last two hutongs. It's like being in a genuine neighborhood in Beijing -- a different world from some of the big tourist hotels. To me that's a big plus!
The ambiance is wonderful -- soft jazz plays at night and you can get yourself a beer or a bottle of wine from the fridge (beer's less than a dollar and wine was the cheapest we saw in China) and sit in the comfortable lounge chairs or use Bob's computer.
Breakfast is limited but the yougurt was wonderful and I always had seconds. Coffee varied from day to day but we appreciated it more when we stayed other places and saw how expensive it was.
We stayed in room #4 the first time. It's the only one that doesn't directly face the courtyard so it has a little more feeling of privacy but we also enjoyed the room that did face right onto the courtyard.
